Is there a better way to know if you want to support vridniX than testing it?
The game is a platformer which combines speed and agility as the hero can't stop running! Moreover he is able to rotate the levels by picking up special orbs!
The main character, vridniX, is a unique being who lives among the kindest and most gentle species: the Wamnis. He's a lazy brat who wants others to worship him.
It's when a terrible threat comes upon their world that vridniX will stand up to be the first one to stop it. But on his way, by using his ability to rotate the zones, he will eventually destroy all the places he passes through.
-Never stop running: vridniX is in a hurry, he’s got no time to rest!
-Interact with everything: Run on the floor, hang onto the ceiling, bounce against the wall! Use the environment at best.
-Spin the levels: Pick up the rotation balls and watch the level rotate as you wreck entire areas.
-Meet and face the various species of the Neta-Vark: obstacles in game and interactive characters in cutscene, each species has its own unique behaviour.
-Strange and unusual boss battles: vridniX can’t attack at all, yet he wants to save the day! Fight against many unkind foes and find a way to win.
-Follow the story, or don't: you don't care about this world? Neither does vridniX. You'll be able to ignore the inhabitants or walk away while they're talking.
And many other things!
In the Delta Universe, there live the most gentle species of all : the Wamnis. But they have always been the victims of the Trogogluxes: the species destroyers.
Always fleeing, the Wamnis went to the depths of this universe, trying to hide from the invaders and one day, they found a secret place: The Neta-Vark. They settled here and lived millenia safely. Since then, lots of Wamnis migrated to different areas and created several clans.
However, they didn’t know they’re weren’t alone on The Neta-Vark. Millenias later, the Wamnis found vridniX, a Naqq. He was found asleep in a locked chest by a young woman.
Since that day, vridniX lives with them, for the better and worse.
vridniX: he's a spoiled brat who spends his days doing nothing. He has never felt at home, living among all the Wamnis who kinda left him out. He wants to accomplish great things so that they would all love and worship him. He can’t stand anything that is vegetable.
Herayin: This Wamni is the local super hero. Much stronger and faster than any other Wamnis, she appears as the perfection for all. She’s the one who found vridniX asleep, and she will observe him for several years, intrigued by this unique fellow. In the game, she’ll want to activate the switch of destiny to save the Wamnis.
Venn: vridniX’ best friend. He loves high-tech products and has access to the newest inventions thanks to his rich parents. He likes to tease vridniX, as he finds him very interesting but also a little bit stupid. During the game, he’ll serve as vridniX' sidekick, always staying in contact with him, and will help him in his quest, even if he thinks it’s futile.
Detective Maïonez: Hoop commissioner, he loves doing nothing of his days. However, since vridniX' awakening, he spends all of his time chasing him. During the game, he’ll hunt vridniX down without a rest, to stop him from wrecking everything.
Creation of Uncanaut
"Dude, let's make video games together". End of 2014, Jonrod asks his friend Greg. That's how the adventure started for us, two freshmen recently graduated from game design studies. By chance, we were also a developer and an artist. we decided to see what we could do as a team, just the two of us.
Since then, we've been working on vridniX. After 18 months of work, many troubles and plenty of feedbacks from our lovely fans, we're ready to show our game to the whole world, hoping you will love it!
The music in vridniX will stress the feelings of speed and dynamism that are present in the game. Therefore, the music will be... oh well, who cares about the description of music when you can simply listen to it? Here are some tracks! :D
And you can listen to all the music in the demo here : https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLRqOPFZZzvWpaTc8aAk91nLif_lGkWauD

You'll get news about the game: trailer, screens, gifs, infos but even more!! During the campaign, there will be 9 pages of a special free comic about vridniX ! By the way, you can see the first page further below ;)
Well, I think that's it! Thanks a lot for reading and for supporting us! Really... Can't wait to see where this is going!
We're expecting to release the game at end of 2016, since we have the full engine ready, a hundred of levels, what's left are mostly cutscenes, bosses, some additionnal gameplay and the musics.
Since we've been working on this game for about a year and a half now, we're starting to run out of money. This crowdfunding will help us finish the game, buy licences, and pay taxes and fees.
Damn, we are so excited right now! Let's make a great game together!
Risks and challenges
Our biggest challenge will be to meet the deadlines.
We've got a planning and we think we can stick to it, but as you know it now, we’re only two guys making this game, and it’s our first. Every day we're facing new challenges, whether they are technical or not. Moreover, we must take care of all the aspect of game development, like right now with the kickstarter: it's a HUGE amount of work.
And since we'd rather give you vridniX as we really want it to be than deliver it earlier, but incomplete. Yeah... deadlines will be our main threat. But since we're working on vridniX in full-time, it should be alright!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
