Hey everyone! Even though the Kickstarter didn't pan out, check out this video!
Burst! 3D is stil happening! We are bootstrapping it with the 406 Club here in Great Falls, and hope to have it playable before the E3 Expo! If you're in the Great Falls, MT area, we hope to have it playable to the public for the first time at the PsychoStick concert at the 406 on May 4th, come see us and see how Burst! is coming along! The firework effects you see there are the REAL effects that will be in the final game, running live in-engine and everything!
The song you hear there is The Message by The Hope Movement, a link to their facebook is included in the description of the song!
Hey everyone! As you can see, the Kickstarter was unsuccessful. However, we aren't packing up and going home! This is NOT goodbye!
We may launch another Kickstarter for Burst! in the future, however right now we are working with the 406 Club here in Great Falls to bootstrap the money through monthly events. The first event raised just under $1,000.00 so we hope to use that to produce a playable prototype by April 21st (that's the date of the STEM Expo here). We're doing another silent auction at the 406 Club on April 7th as part of their Zombie Show, so come out and say hi!
Thanks again! Your guys' support means a lot! Burst! is happening, so please follow me on Twitter (www.twitter.com/ZookeyTK) or check out our site periodically (www.teamkaizengames.com) to see the latest on Burst!, Shattered Soul and the other projects we're working on!!!
Hey everyone! Josh here again! As you can probably see, we're doing decent at $388.00 pledged but not close to our $6,500.00 goal and we have 12 days left. I just wanted to throw out there that, for us, it's do or die and dying ain't an option!
With that in mind, the 406 Club (who is hosting the benefit for Burst! this Friday) has already said they'll throw 1 benefit a month to bootstrap the development costs for Burst! if this Kickstarter falls through. As far as we're concerned, your support means the world to us even if it doesn't translate to a successful Kickstarter. In light of that, we will still put your names in the credits of the final version regardless of whether this Kickstarter is successful or not!
We also changed our gameplan a tad on the UDK side. We're already doing one project in UDK (Shattered Soul, our fighting game we'll show more publicly of soon!) and we've been in situations of potential collaboration with other companies who asked if we had Unity experience on top of UDK. Individuals on our team have previous Unity experience, but as a team we hadn't tried it yet. So, to show we can rock it in both UDK and Unity, we're keeping Shattered Soul in Unreal (UDK) and moving Burst! to Unity.
Some early testwork is already done, one of our artists (Jake Lietz) put together the following test video:
That's just a taste of what's to come :-) MUCH more is on the way! One way or another, Burst! is going to get made!
