Ever wanted to create your own video game? Use your Creativity to draw your own levels and characters in Pixel Havoc.
is a Turn Based Tank style Artillery video game, in which the player must defeat their opponents by launching pixels across a fully destructible world in hopes of damaging their enemies. Pixel Havoc is unique (in contrast with other great Tank Artillery Style games, like Worms, Scorched Earth and GunBound) because it allows the player to create their own levels and characters, which can be shared with friends.
The main goal of Pixel Havoc is to create a game that will allow people to easily create their own levels and characters from scratch. We didn’t want to steer their creativity in any direction. A player can use any picture to generate a level or character, or you can even draw your own. Let your sketches on the side of your math book become a battle field, or a picture of your dog a beloved character. We also want people to be able to share their creations with their friends, so we plan on building a robust infrastructure to allow for the storage of possibly thousands of levels and characters.
We have also updated the combat system to allow players to not only customize their character and level, but also their ammunition. With our system a player can easily create complex and devastating attacks with very little direction from us.
Single Player Campaign
We wanted to add a little bit to the tank genre as well, so we wrote a campaign with over 10 hours of playtime containing over 75 Enemies, allies and zones--- and that count is growing.
Why do we need funding?
In order to finish Pixel Havoc we need to be able to keep the lights running while we continue to work diligently towards its completion. There are a lot of elements we would love to add to the game that we do not currently have the budget for. We also have equipment costs, as well as some licenses we need to purchase/renew. Every dollar helps us get closer to completing this project and we thank each and every one of you who pledges.
Creating video games is a labor of love for us, and we hope that the computer/gaming community can come together to help us finish this great project and bring it to the world.

In the credits section of the game, your name, organization, message or tribute, will be displayed under the corresponding section. For instance a credited beta tester, will have their name, organization, message or tribute, listed under the Testing Staff category of the credits. This is a real credit, and a nice addition to any resume.
One credit per pledge.
For example if you purchase the Game Publisher Reward, you do not get mentioned in the Testing Staff, Game Content Designer, Level Designer, and Character Designer Sections of the Credits. You must choose only one section of the credits you would like to be featured in.
If you purchase a higher level pledge you WILL have access and are welcome to use all of the same tools as the lesser positions.
You are NOT required to submit the content required of the lesser positions.
Honestly, we here at Cryogenic Entertainment are pretty picky when it comes to quality and gameplay. Tentatively our hopes are have the Beta release of the game within a month of being funded. Then within an area of 2-4 weeks after receiving the proper input from our beta testers, and after all of the gameplay and functionality meets our standards, the final product will be ready for distribution.
