The Golden Turd is the debut game from the newly formed studio, Rusty Tiger Productions Ltd, currently in development with a projected release on the Steam network in late 2017, starring the voice of Brian Blessed!*

You will take command of one of 14 tiny poo-hungry, glory hunting fly warriors and battle for supremacy around massive human worlds, utilising some of the most twisted, destructive weapons and traps the human mind can possibly conceive, in frantic 64-player matches. 

Check our introduction video from the Rusty Tiger Team:

 You'll form squads, each member equipped with unique abilities and together, stage daring raids to harvest food, convert it to number 2's and deliver it home, making your collective turd pile bigger and bigger, until it achieves its ultimate form; The Golden Turd, the ultimate symbol of conquest, shimmering with glory and encrusted with jewels.

BUT BE WARNED! Rival flies aren't the only thing you'll have to worry about. Your activities will only go unnoticed for so long by ever watchful human eyes, and when the angry titans do come on the war path, your only choice will be to stand and fight in titanic, high stakes battles or cut your losses and flee.

Key features

  • 14 fly warriors each with an amazing array of skills and abilities offering creative tactical advantages and unique play styles.

  • Work together with your squad to stage daring raids, harvest food and convert it into turd to build the magnificent golden turd and claim victory
  • Discover and unlock a range of bizarre multi-functional weapons and creatively lay waste to your foes
  • Enjoy a number of different play modes and character classes
  • Evade or fight gigantic human foes in huge, high-stakes online team battles
  • Give yourself the edge in battle with our unique living armour system. Collect insects in the field and buff yourself up!

If your clan of warriors is to emerge dominant from the swarm, you'll need no shortage of skill, guts and a little help from your friends. A bounty of food is ripe for the taking, hiding around every world in the Golden Turd. 

Collecting food is essential to victory as it forms the fundamental building blocks in the construction of the Golden Turd.

Soar through the skies as a tiny fly warrior!
Soar through the skies as a tiny fly warrior!

Rarer, high value foods which yield more poo will be harder to find and will often take you on a journey through perilous trap-filled locations. Lead your clan through the battlefield and claim your share, each using unique abilities to dominate your opponents.

Defend comrades as they convert their stash into turd and make a heroic race for the drop off zone before all is lost. If successful, you'll be able to watch your growing pile of poo swell with pride and glorious stench!


We are planning 7 classes and at least 14 playable characters at launch, each with different weapon sets and unique abilities, presenting totally unique tactical opportunities. 

Hone unique abilities and form the ultimate squad to dominate your enemy!
Hone unique abilities and form the ultimate squad to dominate your enemy!

Raise hell with insane super-fly psychic powers or creep in the darkness as a silent but deadly assassin. Smash your enemy as a lumbering juggernaut, or rush the enemy from the above as a lightning-fast ninja fly. Each class will be tuned to provide a totally unique style of play.

Classes include:

  • Grunt: Your standard well balanced, battle-ready blue bottle.  
  • Ninja: Fast, agile and unseen, the lower defensive capabilities of the Ninja fly are compensated by their infamous stealth abilities. Able to leap and fly over immense distances and sneak past enemy lines with ease, gaining intel for their team mates. 
  • Engineer: Engineers ride into battle on baby grubs that can be deployed as tactical mobile turrets or commanded to collect resources. They can also disable traps and aid other team mates. A real fly’s fly. 
  • Heavy Duty: Thundering into battle with fearsome high powered weapons, these obese gluttons of the battlefield have formed allegiances with huge beetles which they wear as powerful armour to offset their slow, lumbering pace. 
  • FireFly: The FireFly is feared for the crazed ferocity they bring to the battlefield. Sporting huge home-made flame throwers with the ability to ignite near invisible trails of gas, creating highly destructive defensive measures and devious traps. 
  • Archer: Pin-point accurate and deadly- the Archer class bring precision honed from years of dedication and training to the arena. Able to clip the wings of even the biggest fly, with deadly, silent accuracy. 
  • Psycho: The lunatic Psycho flies, often driven mad whilst trying to control their supernatural abilities, unleash ferocious mind-power upon their foes and are able to control other insects to do their bidding on the battlefield.

Have you ever dreamed of running in horror from a gigantic enraged man equipped with the mighty lung power of Brian Blessed*...?

Pending contract and achieving our Kickstarter Goals, Brian will voice star in the Golden Turd
Pending contract and achieving our Kickstarter Goals, Brian will voice star in the Golden Turd

Dream no more! The path of the turd-lusting fly warrior is littered with many dangers, but perhaps none as terrifying as incurring the wrath of a titanic angry human, who has just hungrily strolled into the kitchen to find half of his lamb chops devoured and swarming with warring flies. 

If you enjoy huge bosses with your multiplayer action, then we've got your back; We are very pleased to announce that pending contract and hitting our crowd funding goals, Brian Blessed* will be starring as the ultimate towering nemesis of the flies. When the humans come, your only choice will be to stand and fight in massive, high stakes battles or cut your losses and flee.

We want to create some of the most fun and insane online multiplayer boss battles ever conceived. Defeating a human will yield huge rewards, but to stand any chance of victory, you will need to work together using all of your abilities.

*Subject to contract

We are creating a unique living armour system for the Golden Turd. Players will be able to locate and upgrade their defensive abilities by finding other insects in the field.

Need to buff up for a particularly high-stakes raid? Grab hold of a beetle and a couple of centipedes and you are good to go!

But beware, these handy pals ain't gonna die for you - If they take too much damage, they will drop off and run to safety - leaving you vulnerable. Some characters will come equipped as standard with insect armour, others will not. You will be able to unlock new and more exotic insects as you gain experience and progress through the ranks.

 

The Golden Turd will feature a full arsenal of weapon sets unique to each character class and we are not talking about your standard M16 or AR10 here... No... we are working on a selection of some of the most outrageous weapons known to man. 

The Hive Cannon: A literal fist-full of angry swarming bees!

Each weapon will come loaded with multiple functions and fire modes, some of which the player will be able to combine in creative ways to achieve extremely satisfying results. One of our core missions for the game is to create a selection of weapons that are useful, awe inspiring, effective and fun.

Rusty Tiger Productions Ltd was formed in 2015 when a group of friends came together with the vision to make awesome, quality games with a focus on originality and fun. Everyone on the team has a deep passion for video gaming and a long history playing them. 

The Golden Turd is our debut game which has been a labour of love for us and will continue to be as we work hard to bring you the very best game we can. We have big plans, sack loads of ideas and are lucky to have a number of very talented folks on board to help make this a reality. 

This is only the beginning for Rusty Tiger and we are very excited to share with you all the plans we have in the very near future, extending even beyond The Golden Turd. 

It is our mission to listen to the feedback of our fans and the gaming public at large, shaping our projects and bringing your comments and ideas to life.

We are now coming to kickstarter as we have brought the game this far with only a microscopic budget, the sweat of our brows and a desire to make something really amazing. To take it to the next level, we need your help.

Because we have a small but multi-talented team, we are able to make the game on a streamlined budget, which we believe is very realistic and achievable. So if you love the sound of the Golden Turd, please get involved with its production and help us make this project a reality.

With thanks,
The Rusty Tiger Team

We are trying to raise £40,000 on Kickstarter which will allow us to create the game and take it to open access on the Steam network where we will continue to build and expand the game with the feedback and support of our fans and growing community.

If we can smash our basic target, we have a number of exciting stretch goals that will allow us to do some really incredible things and endow the game with even more original features.

Hitting our first stretch goal of £55,000 will allow us to create 3 exciting new game modes including GT Racing, enabling players to compete in awesome aerial weaponized races. APOOCALYPSE Mode; Squad up and face off against gigantic earth-shaking human enemies in a series of massive high stakes boss battles. Stay hidden from the eyes of your enemies in Stealth Challenge mode, in which you will face a number of challenging objectives from the shadows. 

Achieving a total of £75,000 will allow us to bring fully destructible assets to each level as well as rotting foods. This will present a number of amazing new game play possibilities for players. Spotted a crew of enemies taking cover just by that huge bottle of bleach over there? Whip out the big guns, blow it wide open and douse the lot of them in a glooping torrent of corrosive liquid death!

At £100,000 we will bring you 3 Brand-new playgrounds of carnage, in addition to the standard selection of levels, each with their own secrets, traps and unique terrain styles. 

At £125,000, bring a little individuality to the battlefield with fully customizable characters and armour load outs, with extra secret unlockable gear and rare equipment. 

Hitting £150,000 will allow us to make the game even more packed with features by including a scrap scrounging and weapon building system. Challenge yourself to build the most down-right bizarre and insane weapons your mind can possibly conjure up by combining bits of scrap and treasure looted during missions. 

Upon hitting our final stretch goal of £175,000 we will be able to bring you yet another 3 levels, meaning there will be at least 10 levels in total, each tailored to different modes and offering wildly different play-styles and tactical opportunities. 

How will we spend funds raised by Kickstarter?

As pictured in the chart below, you can rest assured we are committed to spending the overwhelming majority of funds raised by our Kickstarter supporters on the development of the game - at least 70%. The other 30% will be spent on gift fulfilment and Kickstarter fees. 

 

Risks and challenges

Rusty Tiger Productions was formed in 2015 when a group of friends came together with a whole load of great ideas, ambition and a deep love for video games. To be working on The Golden Turd has been a labour of love and a dream come true for us.

Because of our enthusiasm, rugged determination and being blessed with a pool of very capable and talented people, we have been able to get where we are today. The Golden Turd is our debut game as a collective and we are very positive about the future.

Despite the odds, we have managed to create a working prototype which we initially created using Unity and have now ported over to Unreal 4, which we are very proud of. We are now lucky enough to have Brian Blessed (pending successful funding and contract) on board who is a hero to us at Rusty Tiger, the fact he has been so enthused about The Golden Turd means a great deal to us all. We have also secured strong interest in future investment opportunities. And this has all been on next to no budget at all, imagine what we can do when we really hit our stride!

Crowdfunding is going to help us take our project to the next level and make our dreams for The Golden Turd a reality. We know that any project can hit obstacles or unexpected issues, but our team is made up of creative hard-working entrepreneurial individuals, backed up by some extremely business-savvy and talented professionals to advise us along the way. We are confident that come what may, we can be flexible and adapt as needed. We can promise that we will always communicate clearly, with honesty and provide updates to everyone that has helped us along the way.

We have bold ambitions beyond The Golden Turd and wish to make a lasting contribution to the video games industry and provide experiences that players will cherish. Your support in these early days will make an immeasurable difference to us and allow us to do what we've set out to do.

Thank you so much, we cannot wait to share the finished game with you.
