Go down. Keep going. Very deep. It's dark. You feel a compulsion to press on, but you know that doing so will seal your fate.
Just in time for Halloween is SUBIES, a frighteningly funny Submarine roguelite (lite roguelike) for iOS and PC, brought to you by a collaboration between Quimdung and the New York City artist Nellie
SUBIES could make you laugh and feel fear in the same playthrough. Each time you play, you're competing with other SUBIES players through Game Center (iOS version) or a custom leaderboard at the Quimdung website (PC version).
The design of the game's interface itself is unique. Instead of invisible controls, like most iOS games, all of the controls of SUBIES are laid out in front of the player to touch and manipulate.
The idea is that nearly all of the game's screen real estate is covered in knobs, levers, switches, et al, like they would be in a(n imaginary) Submarine's control panel.
WHY DO I NEED THE FUNDING?
Quimdung must pay Nellie for the art assets he draws for the game. He would love to work for free, but cannot. It's fair.
Also, we need to buy things like a Wacom tablet, so instead of taking pictures of the art and then connecting the USB cable and then putting it in Photoshop and then magic wanding out the non-drawing and etc etc etc
The more funds we raise, the more we can add to the game. Nellie is big on cartoons, and we would love to buy a copy of Anime Studio Pro to do bone animation. We can envision an intro cartoon and vivid cutscenes.
If we reach $1,000 USD, the game will be ported to XBOX Live Indie Games
