WE MADE IT!!!
Our beloved backers and friends,
$32,000 on our 6th day! I hope you all know what this means for us - It means your love & support is so powerful that we have to talk about stretch goals now! Here’s the first draft of our kickass blueprint!
Digital Art Book:
This 40-page Digital Art Book will include not only the concept art, draft, but also tons of sprites of our pixel art. We will share this with our backers exclusively, for any pledge of 25+.
You will finally have the freedom to build your dream team with all the heroes you will have collected. Also, all our SPECIAL GUESTS can be a member of your team directly.
You will face the All-Foe-Star team in this game mode. At the end, you will have to challenge the SUPER-STAR team (They have what you have, so your strategy matters. Beat the AI!) If you win, not only you have the achievement, you will also gain an ONI-weapon (A very special gift from the Onipunks team to everyone). Available for 25+.
With your help, we can maximize our chance to get our dev-kits from Nintendo. We count on you to spread the word and raise attention to get us there. We need some extra time to do it though. The estimated delivery is the end of 2013.
Currently we support English, French, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese. We will release C-Wars for as many regions as we can.
The eShop code generation is not free based on the information we got so far, and we don't have the access to the dev-kits yet, thus we don't know the exact cost. We will figure out some tiers for the 3DS/WiiU users. Our backers will be able to choose between Steam Key and eShop Key.
Why 65535? From a nerd’s perspective, 65535= 2^16-1. A magic number of DOS’ glory era, only this time it overflows for a happy reason. A special number for the very special event!
Why does WiiU version need more money? Because WiiU has to be played with TV. We can't just throw the 3DS version into it and say "Voila!" We need to redesign the content showing on your TV and it takes more time. 10K is not really enough to cover the cost, but we may be able to cover the rest of the cost from elsewhere (i.e. voluntarily unpaid overtimes, weekend/holiday work hours with instant noodles, etc. XD]
This is a tricky one. First of all, we don't know how to give you guys the free copy because we only have 50 promo codes per update. Secondly, in general, the majority of iOS players are casual, and C-Wars is definitely not a causal game. Not with permanent death, dark scenario, and our hard-to-master RTS combat system.
But if we raise enough money, and you tell us that you own an iOS device and crave to play C-Wars on it, we will try our best to make it happen for you!
This announcement got a lot of attention from you guys. In terms of techs, it's C++, which is nothing new for us. In terms of license, we have absolutely NO IDEA whether we can get the dev-kits from Sony or not. We’ve begun contacting them to see the possibilities, but unfortunately we have a rather small chance with the popularity of C-Wars now, although 20+ news/games websites have already covered the C-Wars KS campaign. But if you can spread the word, up the pledge, our chance will be higher. Let's cross our fingers for this one.
What do you say if you can play as a Lunar Defense Forces' Nuke squad lead in C-Wars? You will face redoubtable Cyber-Lover's army, Crystal mutants, and S7 (S7 is ally, but sometimes they have to attack you, just like you may attack LDF in S7's scenario). You will discover more about the dark truth.
Survival Mode, Cyber-Lover Mode, Mercenary Mode and ???
Let's focus on 3DS now, because we have plans for this awesome stuff. The extra features are very time-consuming, so we will need your support more than ever!
We've also made some avatars for you guys. They are 160*160, feel free to download them.
Let us know if you have any thoughts or concerns. Thank you very much again for all your support!
Please remember, WE LOVE YOU!
The hard-working Onipunks Team
