=========================================================

=========================================================

Abandoned is a psychological suspense adventure game where you can explore your character Bruce Alvaro. You are in search for your brother Dom in a forgotten asylum-institution. You and your brother trained for a secret branch of the government called the Agency since you were children. Be dragged into the emotional deep story and unique gameplay; take control of inmates by possessing them as a ghost accessing new areas, upgrade weapons from items found in the environment making them more deadly, and more!

Abandoned is currently in development by only a few people, we’re excited to see how far we can expand the technology and gameplay when we have your support as a backer!

Abandoned is about the story of two brothers (Bruce & Dom) and the development of betrayal & conspiracy. Both brothers used to work for a secret branch of the government together, eventually on a mission Dom’s wife ‘Zoey’ was killed accidentally by Bruce, leading Dom to a path of hatred the game take’s place after these major events. Throughout the game Zoey becomes an essential character in the game’s story and you will uncover details of the past. As Dom went rampant he started leaking details about the Agency, being a popular political figure this wasn’t exactly shedding The Agency in a positive light. The Agency deemed Dom to be insane to the public eye and sent him to an abandoned classified asylum hoping he would come to his senses or be killed by other inmates.

However the prison isn’t exactly secure. Your mission is to make sure your brother does not leak intel from within the prison walls as you are still a loyal asset to the government.
-----------------------------------------------------



It's still early for Abandoned, however we have quite a bit to talk about already and we'll be giving more details on new features regularly! The asylum has been taken over by inmates and many years have passed making firearms rare to find which opens up other unique avenues of gameplay like: Trading with an inmate dealer, Kill the Dealer & take his stuff, Possessing an inmate to kill himself or others (playing as Zoey),  running away (It’s okay if you do!), or simply killing them with a found weapon or with your bare fist! Survive the daunting chaos of inmates and your own battered sanity. Play the game how you want to with multiple paths to objective points and modifying your own weapon.

Here is just a few Key Features we are building to:

• 4-6 Hour Campaign
• Survival RPG Hybrid Genre
• Possess & Control your enemies!
• Physics-based Animation.
• Modify your weapons making them more powerful & epic
• Hours of Quality Voice-Acting + Story Cutscenes
• Trade Items with inmate dealers or kill them taking their stuff (This will warn other potential dealers).
• Throughout the game your reputation will increase and other inmates will talk about you in dynamic conversations!

Abandoned was initially started back in 2012 by only two people on an old modified version of the FPI engine, we were extremely limited with what we wanted to do yet we did what we could with what we had. During this time we shelled out around 80% of the game in just a couple of months though as game developers we grew in skill nearing the game’s completion. So. Like normal people.. We started completely from scratch and strived for even better overall level design, scripting, and story-telling.

Unfortunately the other developer I was working with didn’t have enough time to work on the game with me and with no funds nor other developers to work with for such an ambitious idea the game went into development-limbo. The game was rewritten completely in a new engine which led to better game-play mechanics, better graphics, more story possibilities and more.

 
In 2014 the game was started again making the game what it is today, I am the only developer but hoping with possible funding to get some additional help. I’ve already gotten a ton of fan-mail supporting the game that wants it to be completed as much as I do which I’m extremely grateful for. (Thank You!)

We started a previous successful Kickstarter for the Game’s Soundtrack  check that out here!

Abandoned originally started as a tech-demo for a game design competition (Semantic Seed). The competition was judged by development companies like Microsoft & Apple. We won first place for our demo of Abandoned, this was one of the origins of the game.

“Our mission to you is to bring a quality experience to as much people as we can, help us make this game happen – we can’t do it without you!”

                                                       Why Kickstarter?

We've invested a lot of our own money to get Abandoned off the ground but we're going to need your help to get all the way to the finish line. Should we meet our initial goal we’ll have enough to make sure the game gets completed with the quality that you expect from us but I cannot stress how much we cannot do this without you. We NEED YOU! Even with our first stretch goal it’s still very possible that we’ll still be funding the game from our own pockets, help us make the game that we want to make and you want to play! In the very happy event that we exceed our $100,000 Kickstarter stretch goal, this will grant us more financial freedom and will allow us to build an even better game.
----------------------------------------

Spread the word where you can, tell your friends, family, shout it out of your window if you have to every bit of exposure helps. Only you guys can make this project happen and have an effect on its development how cool…and scary is that?


                                                 What do we need funding for?
Well as you can see this is a pretty ambitious project and I'm the only game developer on board so this Kickstarter will be used for hiring other experienced developers (Which includes Modelers, Animators, Programmers, and Artist) who have shown interest in developing the game; legal fees, and making sure everyone who is working hard on the game is properly paid!

Risks and challenges

Making games is a challenge in itself and there are alot of risks but we feel with our extensive experience, we have a pretty great start.

The "newer" version of the game has been in development for around 4 months now with mostly just 2 developers working on the game and I can honestly say we are finally making the game we wanted "Abandoned" to be. We are in this for the long haul and won't quit till this game ships out. There are alot of surprises to come and we thank everyone who is along for the ride.

Thank You,

-Amario (3Bit) Andre
