About

Axes and Acres - Farm, Build, Survive!

Gamejolt: http://gamejolt.com/games/axes-and-acres/122278

Greenlight: http://bitly.com/axesgreenlight

We are BrainGoodGames, two friends working together to make games with mechanics that will allow for great depth of strategy. BrainGoodGames previously created Militia (33 Reviews on Steam, 100% Positive). Axes and Acres is a Single-Player strategy game which we are currently designing and is currently campaigning on Steam Greenlight here!

We would love to be able to bring this game to the world for everyone to enjoy!

 We believe games that make you think, plan, and devise your own strategy which you watch unfold are awesome. We want to push the boundaries of single-player strategy and create games that are filled with difficult decisions that feel deeply rewarding as you learn and improve.

Check out the Axes and Acres gameplay for yourself with our demo at http://gamejolt.com/games/axes-and-acres/122278 or watch our gameplay video below:

The $5000 would contribute to our game's development but it is not the entire cost of development, nor is the game going to go unfinished if we do not reach the goal. We came to $5000 by calculating a modest living wage of $625 per month per designer, for a 4 month period (roughly the development time for the game). This does not completely cover the cost of developing the game, but it would be extremely helpful!

We would also love to have your vote and your feedback on our Steam Greenlight page here: http://bitly.com/axesgreenlight

If we are able to gain significant funding we will be able to make Axes and Acres amazing, and we will be able to continue to develop games. The single-player strategy genre is severely lacking, the options are very limited, and the quality of decision making is generally low. We want to create games that use brainpower and are extremely mentally satisfying for players who enjoy strategy. As this genre becomes more popular there will be others making games in the space and the more competition there is, the better the games will get. This is great for everyone who likes these types of games!

Militia is a tight design that is somewhat familiar to fans of the turn-based strategy genre. Axes and Acres adds a number of entirely new mechanics inspired by modern board games, and for this reason is a much more ambitious design! We're hopeful that this approach will add a touch more complexity, a lot more depth, and garner the same positive response on a larger scale.

Risks and challenges

The main risk with this project is our Steam Greenlight campaign. Steam is the largest avenue of distribution for developers like us and if our Greenlight campaign is unsuccessful it will greatly inhibit our ability to continue to make games like this.

We are confident that we will be successful on Greenlight, as we have already successfully greenlit a game (Militia), and our current campaign for Axes and Acres is well on its way!

We plan to continue to spread the word about Axes and Acres through social media to ensure Greenlight success (and your help is greatly appreciated!). The best way you can help us is to spread the word about Axes and Acres! You can find our Greenlight page here: http://bitly.com/axesgreenlight We would love to have your vote!
