About this project

LEGEND OF KINDARA
This will be the first video game produced by BlueGalaxy Digital.

SUMMARY: 

Legend of Kindara is an adventure/story about the hero Hurricane from the small island-village of Kindara. Centuries ago, a great evil ravaged the land in the Disaster of Ages, and a hero from the small village saved the world. They say that history repeats itself, and that the hero of Kindara will rise again...

Legend of Kindara is an RPG Maker VX Ace game and will be 2D with sprites and cartoony and/or manga-style graphics. LoK will reflect a magic-medieval "fantasy" setting with references to Japanese culture. The game will be story-centric with interesting character dialogue, as the goal is to recreate what made old games fun. Its content is intended to match (or nearly match) with a "Teen" or "PG-13" rating.

Developer: BlueGalaxy Digital
Publisher: TBD
Director: Devon Varesko
Composer: TBD
Engine: RPG Maker VX Ace
Platform: Microsoft Windows
Release date: Rough estimate - Q4 2015
Genre: Fantasy / Adventure

FUNDING: Kickstarter Goal Mark: $12,000

WHAT PLEDGES/DONATIONS ARE USED FOR:

* Development of the game.
* Giving donators their rewards.
* Paying the game designer.
* Paying other major contributors (musicians, artists, etc.)
* Marketing of the game (which will include a game website with forum).

DISCLAIMER: This game is in development. All media here is from the development stage, and may not represent the final product. This is an "early access" game, and it may not be completed if lacking adequate funding or pending some other reasonably severe issue.

FEATURES (BASE GAME):

* Questline and sidequests with approximately 20 hours or more of total gameplay time. (Played at normal speed, while pursuing most content.)
* Original Soundtrack with at least 15 audio tracks. (Digital instrumentals.)
* Custom Sound Effects. (Made with bfxr for an 8-bit sound.)
* Dating/romance feature. Hurricane may earn the affections of one of four female characters.
* Item shop feature. Open your own store and sell items to NPCs.

STRETCH GOALS (TO BE ADDED IF FUNDING REACHES DESIGNATED LEVEL):

$14,000 - More realistic-sounding weather & realistic-sounding ambient soundscapes.

$20,000 - Original Characters & Tilesets for a unique look. (Else it will resemble other RPG Maker games)

$22,000 - School Life prequel expansion. See what Hurricane's life was like before the main game events.

$27,000 - Rival Kings expansion. Become the king of your own castle, giving orders to subordinates to keep the kingdom running effectively.

$32,000 - Unannounced expansion. This will be another expansion that adds more content and at least one more gameplay feature.

NOTE: Excess funds beyond $32,000 will be used to support the next game project by BlueGalaxy Digital, which has not yet been determined. (If the "excess funds" exceed $200,000, the next game will, by default, be a sequel, prequel, HD re-mix, or 3D re-mix of Legend of Kindara.)


DONATION/PLEDGE REWARDS:


See rewards section (in sidebar). "Limited Edition" used in the rewards listing means that exact version is limited to donators only, and not that it is limited to a specific, pre-set number (unless otherwise specified).

Risks and challenges

Certain work may need to be done by contractors (such as for cover art, music, etc.) These contractors may produce unexpected results, causing game style mismatches or resulting in poorly-placed funding. The founder of BlueGalaxy Digital started as a freelancer and he should have a good feel for what contractors (if any) are a good match for the project.

"All or nothing": If funding fails to meet the project goal, Kickstarter has said they won't charge you. BlueGalaxy Digital will not be providing any refunds except in rare/extreme cases.

If funding does not meet the goal, the project will simply be canceled.

The game may also not be completed pending some other reasonably severe issue, for example, a severe disease, disability, or death affecting the game's creator(s).

In the very unlikely circumstance there is a serious conflict with other commitments, development may be slowed or even postponed for up to a year.

No rewards will be offered if the goal is not met.

Receiving pledge/donator rewards depend on your ability to actually "pull your end of the bargain" in providing the information necessary to process your reward. To put it simply, you need to be responsive and cooperative to receive your reward. Example: T-shirt size. Please respond what size within 1-2 weeks. Example: Angel statue. Please make sure the text you provide isn't too long-winded, inappropriate, or breaks the "fourth wall".

Please note that alternate versions of the "limited edition" awards may be sold separately after game release. For example, the soundtrack may be sold separately, but it will be without the bonus track. There may also be alternate versions of the t-shirts and posters available at that time.
