Hello everyone......it is us.....the faces behind the Foxtales

Posted by Foxtales Studios LTD (Creator)

At the beginning we were a bit skeptical about showing our faces because we are kind of made out of mirror cracking material. But then our backers constantly clamored to see the faces who a lot of backers think will crash and burn during their first campaign. Well, here we are.  

No wolves behind Foxtales

Burhan Ullah Kazim AKA Tippu 

Publisher and Project Manager

 Burhan, a gamer at heart; Burhan or as we like to call him Tippu has always been a company man. He started out as a telecom engineer but his work took him to the far corners of China where he mastered the art oriental negotiations and a little mandarin. His resourcefulness is what allowed Foxtales to transform from a dream into reality. As an old timer, he is a hardcore fan of Dungeons and Dragons, still loves his N64 and is a fantastic Hearthstone player. 

Humayun Syed 

Game Creator and Designer

Humayun hated school. Being a dyslexic he found toys and games more meaningful than books and words. Since the age of 7, he has been making clay figures playing with them. Always an artist at his core, he is supremely versatile. He is an extremely skilled 3D artist, illustrator, sculptor and animator and a diehard Assassins Creed fan. When he is not creating stuff, he can be found buried in his lair that is stacked to room with board games and figurines. More than half the time, he expand the stories of his owned board games by making his own figurines and scenarios when he find them boring. He thought about Overturn 3 years back but had no resources to pursue it until he met Tippu who helped him with his dream. Overturn was a full time responsibility so to get this game made, Humayun left his job and worked one miniature and game feature at a time. He is a quite and rather private individual and a proud dad of 2 beautiful children with another on the way. I wonder if he will name the child after one of the game characters. (The whole Dargon fiasco is his fault by the way)

Arafat Hifazat 

Game Writer and Communications Manager 

 And then there is me. Born and raised in Middle East, living in Pakistan and Dubai simultaneously; I head the operations of a Marketing company whose offices are in both Pakistan and Dubai. Having a full time job, two little boys and a wife is a full time job but when Humayun came to me year and a half back with the concept art and few crude figurines, he told me he needed a kick ass story to bind narrative and gameplay. His characters had those distinct middle eastern appeal and he had these scary concept art of jinns so I took a month and came up with the history of Drish Barahir, then made a story around it. Humayun and Burhan instantly loved it and after polishing it for a few months, wrote the scenarios and character bios of the game. I have been with these guys ever since and looking after Overturns communication. I am huge video game buff and even named my first born Raziel after the protagonist of one of my all-time favorite game soul reaver. When I am not playing video games, I am either reading or watching horror movies.

      Calling your backers "rude" is a bit like the pot calling the kettle black ... You have not been the soul of courtesy yourself and you like to see rudeness where there is none.

      Thank you for the update and sharing this vital information. Finally we know (and see) who is behind this project. I wish this had been available at the launch of the campaign, would have been so much easier for all of us (creators & backers alike). I really appreciate all the information you provided about yourselves and the small jabs at all of us who asked the hard questions ;-) I know the first days might have been rough & tough for you, but believe me, we backers felt the same. That's the reason why I and some other backers had to put up the pressure and ask the hard questions. We WANT this project to succeed, but we also WANT to see more information and most of all the people (and not the company) we support. KS is based on trust and transparency and if you continue with this and keep the backers informed and involved, some of my concerns are lessened. I still cannot promise you to stay till the end, but I will follow this campaign along (at $1 pledge for now). I might still pledge for a Rebellion Reborn before the end or pick this game up when/if it hits retail. I wish you all the best for this campaign. I really want this unique looking game, like I said before, the 3D renders look amazing as do the gameboards. We only need to see some more evidence that you can actually deliever this in all its glory.

      I always love to know a bit about the people behind projects. Giving newcomers the chance they deserve is one of the great things of Kickstarter. Very well done, guys!

      Thats the right way! We support creators not companies so managing trust and personality is important!! Cool. Have fun!

      Nice to read you.... and I'm happy that you guys fit completely to the image I have had from you :)

      And I think most mirrors will survive you :) and the backers also :)

      Well done up to yet :)

      Boy, first you alienate your backers by offering an exclusive to the first 48 hours a week after going live, then you call your backers annoying? I realize that by writing this I’m putting myself into the “annoying” camp, but honestly you can’t treat your backers that way. It looks like a great game and you should be proud. Please don’t continue alienating your backers, though. Let us help you be successful!

      This update is great. Seems like this is what Kickstarter is/was really about. Helping a dream come through.

      Ok sooooo. Nice to meet you guys. How about part 2; the gameplay video? It's ok if it's your faces in it. All we want to see is the game and how it plays.
