Battle'pults is an arcade style game where you hurl people, animals, and objects at an opposing position, while defending your own position.
IdeomotorFX, a indie game studio, is making a game called Battle'pults.
What is Battle'pults? It's an arcade style game where you have to defend your position while attacking an opposing position. Oh did I mention that you get to use a catapult. Sadly we ran out of ammo, so you will have to make due with what ever you can find. This means that you can hurl people, animals (cows, chickens) and other objects. The style of the game is cartoon-ish with cartoony violence. The game will feature several levels and have single player and multi-player modes (w/ full networking).
Who is making this game? IdeomotorFX is doing the programming, game design, art and networking for the game. We have made several games in the past (some in 24 hrs). You can see and play our games on our website.
Our plans? We are planning on creating the game with semi-transparency. This means that we are planning to do a bunch of blog posts and videos showing what we are working on. This will help give you a glimpse at how the game is taking shape. Anyone who has beta access will be able to see the latest changes to the game first hand.
Currently we are planning to have several themed levels (ex, Farm, Urban Environment, Cafeteria) that will have different items to launch and different items to defend. There will also be several single player and multi-player modes.
When the game is finished we are hoping to get it released on some of the various game services (Steam, Impulse, Direct2Drive, etc) and to sell it direct form our website.
What the money will be used for? The money that we gain here on Kickstarter will be used for licensing of Unity Pro, the purchase of some music/sounds for the game and (if there is enough) some funds will be used to help pay the development costs (developers, artists, etc).
