Buck - 2D Post-Apocalyptic Noir Action-Adventure Game

 If funded, Buck will be available on PC, Mac, Linux, PS4 and XBO!

In this Metroidvania-style game you play as Buck, a motorcycle garage mechanic who decides to leave everything behind to find the truth behind the disappearance of a girl. Buck struggles to adjust himself to a world he doesn't fully understand. Traverse the wasteland while fighting and talking your way though junkyards, mountain passes, ghost towns and survivor outposts. As the game progresses, Buck gradually pieces together the reasons that brought this world, and its rugged inhabitants, to their knees...

 

 

 

 

It's hard to describe the immense impact that Buck has had on our lives. We've been working on the game for over three years now, spending thousands of dollars from our own pockets to get the game up to its current pre-alpha status. You can try the current build for Buck to see for yourself how our passion for this project has taken us this far and how, with your support, we can make Buck the best game it can be. We have poured our heart and soul into building the basic mechanics and gameplay features for the game, and we now need your help so that we can secure the funds needed for the final push to complete Buck. 

 

 

  

 

 

                                        

 

 

 

                  

  

 

                                          

We have several reward tiers to thank you for your support. Depending on the reward tier you select, you will receive wallpapers, digital copies of Buck, the soundtrack and the art book, a limited edition physical copy of Buck on disc, signed items, access to the Alpha and Beta versions of Buck and more! Check the reward tiers on the right or the images below to see what you can get for backing Buck!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

  

 

As you can see above, we've budgeted for the funds that, with your support, will help us finish the development of Buck. There are Kickstarter fees to cover, taxes, marketing costs, the cost of creating the rewards you as our backers will be receiving, but the largest chunk of it all will be going to completing the game thanks to your support!

 

Risks and challenges

We've already put over three years of our lives into getting Buck to its current pre-alpha state, and we are ready to push twice as hard once we are funded so that we can release the game as soon as possible.

We've set a schedule with several milestones for the development of the game over the next year and we aim to stick to it!
