Play the very first level demo for free!
You can have a very little taste of what we want to make on our game. Just click the link below to download it:
We hope that you enjoy the demo like us, we will be happy showing you the game's principal mechanics
Here is the money convertion:
The story takes place on a far away and basted planet named Lunaria. You play as Strong Moon, a full fan of fitness and junk food, distinguished by not wearing a t-shirt; only jeans (Thanks for the gods) and shoes, just to show us his mighty muscles. His brother became into an alive butter bar and kidnapped by a magician to extract the power that gives him life. Our character takes an adventured road through fields, caves, a huge volcano and many more corrupted areas to save his unique brother.
This planet is a moon-shaped terrain, and is full of challenges for our mighty character (and for you, of course). We want to make 2 levels for each area and one boss (six areas, twelve levels, six bosses) and, the first level will be on normal difficulty, but the second one will be a bit harder in each area, a boss fight on the final of the areas and we calculate 5 to 10 minutes to clear just one level. Our demo is from the second area, the "Lunaria caverns", a long road full of darkness and the home of the mighty worms, big rats and batpiggies.
You can read the story of the game in comics that will be unlocked when you finish a new area :
the in-game graphic style is like the cartoons of the 90s
We've decided this for the comic lovers and because we are sure that everyone miss the old cartoons. The level designs are influenced on the "Super Mario World" levels (like the caves, the plains) and the gameplay are influenced on "Donkey Kong Country 2".
The atmosphere of the cave showed on our mini demo, has a big influence on real caves that we have visited years ago (of course, there wasn't giant worms or batpiggies, just ordinary fruit bats).
The environments are made with real paints and brushes, and the characters are made with real marker pen lines (lines aren't made digitally).
Our game had a full handmade environment, animations... everything you see on screen.
Something funny we decided to put on the designs, is the all-time rage face, everyone in the game have this curious and intimidate face, recognizable for the unique less eyebrow, an oval eyes and a mouth like a caveman.
Cross the vast world of Lunaria With Strong Moon while you see the story in comic style, beat the enemies using a unique movement of Strong Moon: The mighty uppercut.
This movement allows you to punch from the smallest enemies, to the collosal ones. You will fight gigantic bosses , each one in different area, with their unique abilities and scenarios... Unfortunately, we don't have the mechanics or level designs for the bosses or another areas, only some concept art about bosses and punched rats:
Search for hidden butter drops!:
And for last, we have the music. The music will be a mixture of rock/heavy metal with space style. Soundtracks are composed, played and recorded by just one person. The music will involve you on the area you are in the moment and it will inspire you to punch every enemy butt on the level... we really want you to punch all the available butts on the game.
Ok.... Time to talk about business:
We choose KickStarter because the community is so big and fabulous!! We see many of the projects that has been contributed 100% on this platform. We are sure all of you can help us to make our dream come true. All of you become as a part of the team, by sharing our project, contributing with money... all that things (in less words, you become a teammate with anything you do for us!) All your feedbacks are important for us!
Our team is named Chihuas Games; we are a very small group, established on Jalisco, Mexico. In the past, we make two small games for Android devices, and now with this project we are looking for a bigger and more polished game on a bigger platform, the great world of pc gaming (STEAM). We´ve been working on Strong Moon for about a half year, due to some time problems (such like full-time jobs, lack of necessary equipment, etc.) we can't advance with the speed and the quality that we want . To avoid those terrible problems, we need the financial support to be full-time on the game and buy the necessary equipment for the development. Also, we want to make more projects. We have already some designs, little bit of music, a beta story, game names, etc. If we can make this game, Strong Moon, a reality, have for sure that we will work on the other projects!! We want to give you more games to enjoy. All the other projects are 100% different from this one (for example, one of the projects are inspired by 40 winx and Luigi's Mansion, and that one could be the next project to make).

Risks and challenges
We don't have the necessary equipment(hardware,desks,etc...) to make the game, and unfortunately we do not have enough time, if we raise the necessary money we dedicate ourselves full time to work in the game, as we can give it to you on time and with so much better graphics quality (and, maybe, much earlier).Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
