"THE SEASHORE" What is this & why NINTENDO SWITCH?
THE SEASHORE is an action-platformer with RPG and Metroidvania elements. The game has a breathtaking atmosphere of Fantasy Post-Apocalypse, solid gameplay, thrilling storyline and well-rounded characters for two players. Your friend and you will play for two characters - a soldier named "Gunman", who’s no longer young, and for a swordmaster, "Spark". Both characters have radically different abilities and motives, but they are united by one goal - to get to the "Seashore", the mysterious place the location of which is impossible to find....

The gameplay is built around player interaction. This is the main reason why we chose NINTENDO SWITCH. This console is the most suitable for the game and allows you to play how you wish - not only on one console and on different joycons, but also on the local network or the internet. On your way you face many enemies, most of which you can’t beat alone, because different characters kill different enemies with greater or less efficiency. This also regards various obstacles that you encounter during the next puzzle, but in addition you still have more complicated obstacles – people populating this world. In dialogue with the characters you have several options for an answer, and the answer you choose mostly depends on: From further relationships with a definite person to the choice on which depends kind of destiny for the New Humanity. You can safely navigate the city, in search of something or just for fun - we made everything as fascinating as possible. The game has an enjoyable mechanics of heroes, an exciting story with a lot of branches and unexpected twists that will remain in your memory for a long time.
Play together wherever you want using Nintendo Switch portable mode!

We chose the sidescroller - as we like making beautiful detailed backgrounds, which you will admire.. Each character on the screen has a special color and is well-rounded.

- Ilya Saley: Programming
It was my dream to make games since childhood. When I was 15 I wrote my first playable game in Pascal from scratch. Many years later i am helping other kids to succeed their dreams by teaching them fundamentals of programming.
- Alexander Kashirsky: Game design, art, background art
I have been studying painting for 4 years, so there's no need to worry about backgrounds and colors. When I was younger, I used to constantly make games on the Game Maker, and even earlier I could spend 5 hours drawing levels on the old wallpaper. That's exactly how a prototype of The Seashore was born.
- Rafael Zulfugar "Stanguts": Narrative design, storytelling
I've been doing writing and scriptwriting for 4 years. Although I haven't participated in serious projects yet, the storyline of the game will show what I'm worth. I made game trailer as well.
- Valentin Kottler: Animation, art
The last member of the team. Animation and Media Arts student, Houston, Texas. ESKETIT!
As mentioned above, we cannot do without help of professionals in some area to create our game. We’ve put so much efforts into this project, because there’s nothing better than a completely finished game made with a soul. We do not want to make another gray game or not use donations wisely. In our opinion, this site is the most suitable for implementing the ideas that we want to embody in our project and attract people that care what they play.
- Where will the money go?
Risks and challenges
Creating games is a way much work, and creating good games is even more tough. THE SEASHORE is our first project, and we don’t want to screw up.
We have promised you a lot, but we intend to make a really great game! Therefore, the question "When the game will see the world?" is difficult to answer.
We want to put into work each of your donations and release the game only when ALL that we promised is REALLY ready, and not just ready, but in the best possible way.
Otherwise, why release it at all?
Thank you for watching our kickstarter! Wait for news!
