About Astro Slice

Astro Slice is a fast-paced space adventure game that has you slashing your way through waves of asteroids, aliens and many other hazardous obstacles. The goal? Save your planet from a devastating rogue meteor shower wreaking havoc across the galaxy. Along the way, you’ll collect powerups, acquire ship upgrades, and much more!

Astro Slice combines the endless runner playstyle from Temple Run with Fruit Ninja’s finger slashing fun.

    

The game will be free for the next 48 hours and will remain free for backers. If you miss the promotional period just let us and we'll send you a special backer code.

Hey Kickstarter Supporters! 

Thank you so much for your patience over the last several months. We really appreciate you keeping in touch with us to let us know your thoughts and feedback. Here is a long-awaited update for you!

1. Astro Slice - we wrapped our beta test and got some great feedback. We've made lots of adjustments to the game. Its now even more fun! THANK YOU!

Here are some highlights/awesome images of Astro epicness: 

Our new app icon - we hope you like it!

 Me getting owned by an alien boss and his buddy - not pretty!

 Fire level and time warp effect (that's one of our single-use items):

 Ice level (flying my junker):

 A ton of sweet ships - I own them all...Mwahahahahah!

 Our way of making an engaging tutorial:

2. Music! We'd like to give a huge THANK YOU to Jerel Northern, the composer and musical genius behind the Astro Slice and Spaceopoly score. Jerel is awesome not only because he is a fellow Kickstarter and one of our original backers - but it was his love of our concept that inspired him to contact us about collaborating. And the rest is history! 

Listen to the theme song: 

 3. Spaceopoly - Development on the game hasn't stopped but we've gone back to the drawing board to clarify how some of the features would work - we want Spaceopoply to be really successful and part of this means making sure that the game models we use make the most sense. Things like good multiplayer dynamics require a huge effort in design and it's something we don't want to get wrong, which is why we are launching a smaller game upfront - hence Astro Slice.

4. Other stuff - We're getting close to finishing our new website and community forums, which were looking forward to unveiling. Our focus has been primarily on creating these games, so the website and community forums will come afterward. 

Thank you again for your amazing ongoing support. We are so grateful and honored to have wonderful backers who want to be involved in the game. We can't wait to launch it for you!

Sincerely,
Adonya & JJ
