About

Monkeys have taken over most the world, infesting cities with uncountable numbers. It is now up to a monkey scientist named Kevin - one of the few remaining survivors - to find the source and end the threat.

The Game 

Monkeys have been on the news quite a bit lately, as they’ve seemingly been multiplying by the thousands, and infesting and taking over a bunch of villages in the jungle. But the problem is getting even bigger. One morning when Kevin wakes up, he finds that the monkeys have made it all the way up to his hometown of Portland! With his city (and many other major cities) in ruins, he needs to find more survivors and offer his expertise to find the cause of the sudden influx of primates. It is up to Kevin and his lab assistant Sarah to end the threat and save humanity. 

Platforms 

Well, we’re participating in Ouya’s “Free the Games Fund,” so that’s obviously going to be the first platform we release on. After that, we’re planning on Windows, Windows Phone, Android, Amazon, iOS, and Mac. We might eventually do others as well if the opportunity seems right.

Gameplay 

There will be 14 levels to play through in the quest to stop the monkeys. The journey will take you from the city, to the jungle, to caves, and even to outer space. Simply put, gameplay is going to be awesome. There will be a plethora (thanks, El Guapo) of different dynamics, such as a driving level and a space dogfight level, but most of the game will be played as a side-scrolling beat-em-up. Think Turtles in Time or Battletoads, if they were fighting an army of turd-slinging monkeys.

Get Your Own Kevin Gear 

Choose one of the $35 pledges and you get to choose some sweet Kevin Gear to receive with your purchase. Here are some templates to give you an idea of how they will look. Simply add a message along with your pledge mentioning which version of the item you'd like, and we'll be sure to ship it to you once we hit our goal.

Double Our Fun(ds)! 

We're participating in OUYA's #FreeTheGames Fund, created by OUYA to support developers making new and creative console games. OUYA will match your pledge dollar-for-dollar up to your goal amount (and a max of $250,000), so help us get there and make a great game for everyone! To be eligible for this match, we commit that this game will be an OUYA exclusive for a period of time. To learn more about OUYA, go to www.OUYA.tv

Why such fundage? 

The funds we acquire will be used for a lot of different things that will make this game awesome.

Some of these are: 

  • Unity Pro License (to make it look all pretty) 
  • Multiple Unity Assets (also to make it look all pretty) 
  • Mac (to release it on OSX and iOS) 
  • Various test devices 
  • Apple/Microsoft development accounts 
  • Hire another developer to speed up development

Risks and challenges

As of now, I'm doing this all myself (design, development, marketing...all of it!). But if I meet my goal, I'll be bringing on another developer to speed up the process. I also would love to distribute the Mac and PC version through Steam, which means we'd have to be green-lit.

Also, you never know what roadblocks you may run into during development. Based on where the project currently sits, a January delivery is pushing it. However, if I hit the goal, I should be able to get the necessary help to get it done.
