About

Engage the worlds of Project Oracle.

In 6 series of stunningly beautiful levels, you play in a physics-based universe, pushing your skills as you race across vast series of maps and perfectly execute strategies against difficult obstacles.

(NOTICE: CURRENTLY ONLY FORMATTED FOR PC)

About the Team:

The talent behind Project Oracle began as students attending the Art Institute of Seattle, with Project Oracle as a passion-project. The team initially wanted to apply their own unique abilities and perspectives for a fun and innovative approach to retro-physics based gaming, and the result drew attention from faculty, staff, and recruiters. Project Oracle's early access demo made it's first appearance at PAX Northwest in September, 2017, drawing much attention from spectators and game reviewers, and following this preview event, the team decided to move forward to complete their first published collaboration, Project Oracle, for the public's enjoyment! 

Once our game is finished, we are intending to self-publish Project Oracle for Steam. This Kickstarter page is our attempt to raise funds to release Oracle on as many major platforms as we can, including Playstation, Xbox, and Nintendo! Publishing on these platforms as an 'indie team' is a massive financial obstacle, but we're reaching out for the support of others to help us create a truly awe-inspiring experience that each platform is capable of!

Project Oracle Demo Review by Dez and Fox Play

SNEAK PEAKS:
Conquer the clock to achieve the best times by exploring levels for key collectibles for finishing the map!

 "One thing that I really loved about it [was] the replay-ability of [Project Oracle]. [The Team] built in a lot of checkpoints... There was no point where I thought to myself '...I have to go do all of this again...' [The team] did a great job of allowing you to have a checkpoint right in front of that one challenging jump [and obstacle]." - Dez and Fox Quote

 

 POWERFUL ABILITIES:
Boost, jump, and harness the power of map items to master levels! 

  "When I finished the...end of the demo...I wanted more." - Dez and Fox

 OBSTACLES:Watch out! Don't get knocked off and lose your best time!

 "Back this game" - Dez and Fox

Risks and challenges

In order to keep the ball rolling, we want to reach as many fellow gamers as we can. To do this, we need to purchase licenses to various gaming platforms for self-publishing our game, and for required software licenses to continue building the game as beautifully as we can.

We also want to develop far beyond what we already have too! A few features we would like to pursue is 4-player local split screen with various competitive modes for consoles, as well as expanding single player power-ups, abilities, and stunning levels to explore!

Our greatest risk is that this beautiful project will only sit collecting dusty pixels, and the talent and efforts featured will go on forgotten...
