And now...Back to the campaign!
Have you ever purchased a subscription box and when it comes you're all excited? You take 5 minutes to unbox it and then...it's over.
Enter Lootopia, an interactive subscription box delivered every 2 months that seeks to immerse the customer in a world where the toys, clothing, collectibles, books and other items they receive are involved in an online interactive saga. The choices they make and puzzles they solve with exclusive Lootopia clue items provided (in the box, on partnered items, even hidden on the box itself) will shape the outcome of the story and reward the customer in various ways.
Every 2 months we will be shipping clients a new mystery box filled with 4-8 items ($60 USD value or more) that will be centered around the title and circumstance of each episode. The items in the box will be a range of collectible and exclusive geek and gamer-related products, similar to that found in popular fandom boxes available today. We also want to focus on indie projects and craft artisans.
How is Lootopia Different?
Here is where things get really fun!
We want to send clients on a quest with intriguing storylines involving the items in their box, facing them against puzzles and choices in a simply designed gaming user interface. A "Loot Guided Gaming" experience.
Simplified - Keep the Stuff. Solve the Quest. Earn Rewards.
In addition to the 4-8 items per box, clients will also get the opportunity to receive extra loot from solving puzzles and completing the story. Each puzzle in the game will yield a physical or digital item from the branded partner featured.
Examples of how items may be used in game:
Imagine - You find yourself faced with an obstacle in the story, a sealed door in front of you is preventing you from reaching the portal in time. What could possibly help you solve this puzzle? You look at the door and recognize the shape from an item in your box...of course! But how? Exploring the environment you realize the stones beside the door reveal a secret behind them, they are pieces to the puzzle! Solve the puzzle to win an exclusive digital item or physical item from related brand, earn Lootopia gold and advance the storyline towards more rewards and glory!
Imagine stumbling upon this creature locked in a containment chamber, is it friend? or foe? The only way to find out is to solve the puzzle! You check in your box for clues and discover a keycard with similar markings found on the security pad! Not only can you use the symbols on this exclusive limited edition Lootopia Quest Item, you also get the cool branded lanyard that is attached! Now solve that puzzle and free your new pal or get eaten by it...I guess we'll see.
Each episode or box release purchased will also enter the client in a draw for the grand prize at the end of the season.
Each box and it's puzzles will yield a certain amount of Lootopia gold from which items can be purchased in our Shop.
With each episode release a randomly selected number of clients will receive Relic Boxes. These boxes are more bountiful and have a crucial role to play for unlocking bonus puzzles for the community.
The veils that separate realities through space, time and dimensions are becoming fragmented. An ancient force is once again attempting to regain power and control over the multiverse, threatening to consume our very existence.
We used to remember; we fought this long ago along side our allies from other worlds, planes of existence and imagination...but now time has faded those memories into dream, legend and myth. The legacy of old lives on through our imagination, replayed through ancient stories and sagas up to modern comics, movies, television, books and video games. The power of human imagination is the key to unlocking the ancient secrets to stopping this intrusion.
With the veil getting weaker with each passing moment, strange portals begin to appear throughout the realms of space and time. These gateways need to be closed to ensure survival and to restore stability to the multiverse.
You are the unexpected heroes tasked with protecting the realms of the multiverse and restoring balance, without you, existence as we know it would be plunged into darkness.
This journey may take you to places you've never imagined could exist. It may take you to realms and realities of your favorite movies, novels, comics and games, to aid your favorite heroes and fight familiar enemies all with the hope of stopping the coming cataclysm.
You are not alone...
There will be others to aid you on the journey and to provide knowledge, clues and history, but beware! Not all entities are what they seem.
It will be up to you to make the correct choices to find the path to victory.
Keep in mind that we haven't 100% locked onto a format or may change formats depending on the release, theme or product line.
The main premise of the game experience is to provide a fun and rewarding, in-depth story-line with product interactivity right out of the box and not be a huge time sink.
Here at Lootopia we really want to see what concepts and ideas the backers have as well before putting all of our dragon eggs into one basket.
Initial Concept -
The game will function similar to Myst and Riven style games, without the full capability of walking through a 3D world (so far anyway, could be added later). The premise of the game is to involve an in depth story-line and interactivity with the products in the box but also not be a huge time sink.
Players will log into their Lootopia account and enter their unique box code to begin the game. They will then be prompted to go through a series of scenarios featuring static but interactive 3D/2D puzzle screens, voice narration and quest text to move the story forward. Each episode in the quest (episode) will feature roughly 6-10 scenarios with bonuses and the possibility of hidden or side-quests that offer various degrees of rewards (Lootopia Gold, Prizes, Achievements, Forum Notoriety? And other ideas).
Once the quest is completed, each player will receive a digital treasure chest to open, which will offer rewards, achievement titles, digital prizes, Lootopia gold and many other possibilities, plus the chance to win one of the featured "Grand Prizes" for that season. All of the data will be connected back to each player's user ID.
Every episode a few lucky clients will have the great fortune of receiving Relic Boxes. Not only are these boxes larger and contain more items, they will also have one high quality "relic" item (either from a licensed brand or unique artisan). Besides looking awesome on your favorite shelf, Relics will also play a special part in the game. Players receiving these coveted boxes will have access to unique content, bonus items and the ability to unlock new episode-based puzzles and content for other players.
Each Relic Box Features:
- 6-10 Items from Geek Culture
- Access to Game & Puzzles
- Bonus Digital Loot
- Season Finale Draw Entry
- $100+ in Retail Value
- Special Edition Relic Item
- Relic Puzzle & Bonus Access
Since Lootopia will be releasing a new box (episode) every two months, we would like to implement something that will keep clients engaged during the off month.
Our initial ideas center around a community resource meter that grows each time a player completes a puzzle or for every player that completes the episode. When the meter is full it will unlock a side story quest for everyone. The side puzzles will expand the story and could possibly feature sponsored prizes and puzzles from popular brands.
Along with the Relic Box Portals and other surprises these bonuses will be rewarding to the Lootopia community as they bring everyone together to open more content and prizes for all.
Imagine, you've received your box of amazing things, completed all puzzles and story in the episode when suddenly you get a notification on your phone "New Relic Portal Available". Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, there it is, someone has unlocked new content! This time it's a sponsored puzzle featuring the world of "Enter Popular Franchise Here" (for example) and, you play through for a chance to win awesome physical and digital prizes. - Just wait until the resource bar fills up! More adventure awaits!
Lootopia is looking to create the ultimate experience for our clients, which is why we are asking backers and fans to help us in the creation process. We welcome ideas and suggestions for anything from game and puzzle formats, items in the box, payment options, and more. We want to be a company that puts the customer experience first.
There is even the possibility of releasing a Player's Choice box, with content and interaction shaped by the Lootopia community.
With this in mind, here are a few principles we will implement from the get-go:
- Always pass savings onto clients with added value and content
- Always ask for your permission for box continuation (no automatic charges)
- Endeavor to create fun and unforgettable content
- Keep our impact on the environment in mind at all times
- To give the opportunity to Indie and smaller companies/artists to be involved.
Risks and challenges
While there are always risks and challenges, we here at Lootopia feel with experience, support and preparedness we can mitigate any potential issues.
Art and storyline for episode one have been completed for the most part, all of our boxes and episode one sleeves are waiting for the printers to push the button and are sourced locally. We also have our artists ready to jump into the game application and website project as well as local (Montreal) web and game developers that we've been conferring with. Everyone is up to the challenge and are especially excited to see some of the backer ideas.
Contacts with suppliers has been made, sample orders have been completed. We have inquired about exclusive products and the possible turn around times for manufacturing and shipping, timing is everything and Lootopia is 100% confident in the professionalism of our suppliers and our own time management.
Lootopia plans on using Canada Post for Canadian clients and has a contract with one of the best and most trusted logistics companies (used by other popular subscription box companies) for delivery into the United States.
We will be fully transparent with any potential issues concerning the launch and release of future boxes.
Nick (Founder) has an extensive amount of experience in business startup with some really popular companies including one of the fastest growing retail companies in Canadian history. He has been involved in problem solving on both small and large scale with varying types of business from retail to manufacturing.
Lootopia also has had the benefit of amazing support from our local economic development office (CLD Brome-Missisquoi) and the government of Quebec.
While we already have most of our initial project run completed (Episode 1) most of the money raised will be going into making the client experience the best it can be. This includes awesome exclusives, best value-in-box, fluid, fun and unique game experience, amazing community features and rewards!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
