KR-17 is a 32-bit story-driven action puzzle-platformer set around a military robot on a mission to subdue a rouge agent operating out of a military installation on the planet Valiant. It will be the first in a multi-genre series of games centered around the story of Terrius, KR-17's home.

What makes this game different?

Simply put; it’s not different. In KR-17 there are no “gimmicks” like rotating the world, no monochromatic styles, no forgettable characters. We designed this game to be a straight-forward adventure game that helped tell KR's story. There are many great indie platformers out there! KR-17 was designed with engaging worlds, captivating story-lines, large levels to explore and a quirky little robot to fall in love with.

Like Commander Keen, KR-17’s level layout is non-linear, allowing the player to explore each level to open the exit. Various enemies, puzzles and obstacles lay in store for our hero, and the gamer will be able to choose how to play each level, utilizing the KR unit weapons system and basic platformer skills. The missions will include a variety of different scene-scapes for the gamer to enjoy, from the industrial to the jungle to the laboratory. Each level is designed to be aesthetically appealing to the gamer and unique to the story line.

Our own Greg McKnight has been working vigorously on the music for KR-17. Inspired by the greats, such as Jazz Jackrabbit and Commander Keen, the music for each level has been carefully crafted to create the mood and feeling of the story and atmosphere. Staying true to the 32-bit style, the gamer will be wrapped up in the story and emotion of the game.




  Watch this for a better explanation: 

Fragmentation Grenades: Standard Grenade which can be used in most situations to turn the tide in favor of the KR unit. It has a medium blast range and effective damage to take out most enemies that the KR unit will face in battle. 

Napalm Grenades: Incendiary grenade which engulfs the enemy in flames and can destroying obstructions in the path of the KR unit. 

Proximity Mines: The Proximity mine enables the KR unit to cover its back in overwhelming battle situations. As the enemy nears the Proximity mine, the mine detects the hostile and eliminates the enemy with prejudice. 

Remote Mines: The Remote mine enables the KR unit to set traps for the enemy as well as take out enemies that are in hard to reach places. The Remote Mine can be detonated by the KR unit at a moment’s notice, shifting the balance of power in against the enemy. 

Guided Missiles: Remotely controlled missile that can be detonated on command. 

Laser Cannon: Standard weapon used by the KR units. The KR unit has been designed to be able to utilize the laser cannon in coordination with any ancillary weapons systems to enable the unit to be versatile in any battle situation. 

The KR unit uses a shared ammo supply that powers all weapons systems in battle. Along with the Recharge stations, the Ammo Stations are strategically placed to ensure victory for the KR units. With all these weapons you can believe we have spent care and time on how ammo works. We wanted you to be able to use all weapons right off the bat, so you can pick your favorite and become a pro at it by the time you get to the more difficult levels. Your ammo is battery fuel used to produce the weapons KR creates. This battery fuel is measured by a readout on the top of the screen. When your battery is low on fuel, you can refill at a refueling station scattered throughout the maps. Check out the other rewards listed! The Story: KR-17 is the first of four games in the Terrian Saga. Each of the four episodes will be a different game. KR-17 - The first chapter. In this side-scrolling adventure-platformer we learn about the state of the galaxy and the current threat to it’s safety due to a rogue agent on one of Terrius’ military colonized planets.

 So, how does the 4-part story work? 

KR-17 begins the saga as a side-scrolling platfomer. This game leads into the next part of the saga, M.A.S.S. which we plan on making one of the most awesome space shooters! The saga continues with Valiant, an action RPG with a special twist on magic and combat. The last game is a secret! What will we be using the money for? We need the Kickstarter money to pay off what work has already been completed on the game, and then it will go to the ongoing completion of the game. This means bosses, lots of graphics, and additional programming. There is also a jetpack JUST SAYIN. Thank you for your genuine interest and consideration of our game. Please download our demo and see what all the hype is about! Check out the site!

Risks and challenges

Our challenge will be making our massive story come through in this medium. If we don't meet the goal, we will continue attempting to raise the funds. KR-17 is our dream, and we are passionate to make it happen, please help us make it a reality!

Being life-long gamers, we definitely have a good feel of what NOT to do. We have 4 amazing artists working on graphics, 3 programmers for the scripting and 4 story writers working to make this a success. We have a team in place that will help us tackle the setbacks, and enough motivation to win!

Thanks for your time spent reading this! I hope KR-17 will fulfill that inner desire to play the old games again!
