Project 1 is an indie RPG that will be made in 30 days. It will be released on PC and Xbox 360. Development started on 6/7/2012.
We have a $100 project goal, because we're used to working with a budget. However, obviously, as much funding as possible will insure a higher quality product.
Why 30 days? Because that's what I picked. And I want a challenge. It's National Game Development Month! It's also a mockery to all the crappy commercial RPG Maker games made in a 1 month span. Did I mention the game is NOT going to be crappy? So there's that.
Project 1 focuses on a group of 4 individuals... And their quest to slay the evil mad scientist project gone wrong: Project 1. That's the story in a nutshell. Of course, there will be much more to it than that, and plenty of sidequests and other fun :)
Eric. He's the main character of the game. He feels that he should help save the world from Project 1, by bringing it to destruction. He's a cool bro.
Natalie. Eric's childhood friend. Though she's not really his friend anymore. She stopped liking him after high school. She decides to join Eric on their journey, for unknown reasons. My best guess is to be a live action Eric Troll?
Terence. He's sent by the king to help Eric on his journey. He'll offer his services for a quick buck, really. He just wants to destroy Project 1, collect his money, and move on. If he doesn't die in the game, he'll probably retire and become an alcoholic. Like Max Payne.
Ernest. He's mostly looking for his brother Ralph, but after finding out Eric is traveling the world to destroy Project 1, decides that he'll tag along. Who knows, maybe he'll find Ralph while journeying with Eric. Or die along the way. Or not. I guess you'll have to pledge at least $5 and get the game, huh?
You! If a person pledges $500, they'll be a party character in the game for at least 25% of the story. The person that pledges will get to pick out character personality traits, as well as name them.
Funding pledged will be used for development (and motivation) of the game.
Thanks for looking, and for any amount pledged.
