Angry Birds/Worms/Red Alert type of Multiplayer game for iOS, PC, Mac, Linux, and Android Devices. Build a stronghold and protect it! Read more
This project was successfully funded on September 18, 2013.
About this project
Get ready for an intense 2D physics multiplayer game for your PC, Mac, Linux, Android,iOS, and Windows Phone devices. The whole point of Stronghold2D is to grow and expand your Base (also known as your Stronghold) and defeat everyone in your path. This 2D game is very much like Angry Birds, but you build your own Base and work towards upgrading your buildings, ammo, and structural objects. Become a 2D Empire!
Most of the Game Functions are already created, but now we need funds for Better Game Graphics (getting a designer but keeping the simple 2D graphics), Server costs (multiplayer), and the Engine price that will run Stronghold2D on Computers, Android, iOS, and Windows phone devices.
Stronghold2D will be listed as a Free Game on Google Play and the App Store. All kickstarter pledgers will have an account to login and play the game with Full Multiplayer Access. We will have non-pledgers pay for the Full Multiplayer Access for around ~$5-$6 to maintain monthly server expenses.
Recently we have implemented small people that will roam around your city. If bombs are hit nearby, your citizen will be panicking. People also get hurt by explosions! For $100 you can get your own citizen in game!
In Stronghold 2D, there's going to be a lot of room for upgrades and advances. We can create any type of object, and why not, maybe even a gun that shoots reverse gravity bullets! Or even a nuclear bomb that will clear out an entire city in Stronghold2D.
Not just the ammo can be replaceable though, you'll also be able to advance your mining building so you can earn more money fast! But like everything else in the game, you have to earn the money by defending your territory and defeating anyone near you.
Game Money will be implemented in the game to give a gaining edge on Stronghold2D. You can gain money by defeating your enemies, or you can create Mining buildings that will collect money slowly, but don't let it just sit and give you the money. Mining Buildings MAY explode if left unattended.
^^^ NEW BOMBS! EMP and Nuclear Bombs! ^^^
Ever have those times when your waiting around and all you have is your phone? Bored and going back and forth not doing anything remotely fun or productive. NOW users can actually play a multiplayer game with their friends and randoms!
Stronghold 2D multiplayer functions will have multiple rooms, you can join or create a new room for a max of around 5-10 users in 1 room. *Look at Stretch Goals* Anytime you leave a room, your buildings, ammo, money, etc will be saved and next time you go into a room your previous building will still be standing. Everyone will be able to compete with each other no matter what device you have!
Stronghold 2D doesn't have a ridiculous amount for expenses, basically it is 3 main objectives.
1. Buy the game engine so we don't have to use their copyright/logo.
2. Graphics team working on the most interesting designs for 2D buildings, and other game objects.
3. Game Soundtrack is a must for this project, being able to listen to some awesome House, Drum and Bass, and other Electronic music while having your screen rumble by the explosions.
You'll like this, Stronghold 2D stretch goals will make this game even more advanced and fun! Imagine a 2D game that you can go out of the world and explore the cosmos with your clan and take over planets. (*15k) WOW!
Stronghold 2D game graphics are very basic, minimal, and flat. Most people DO NOT play 3D games on their phones, its almost pointless. (for some games) Have you ever tried to play a FPS on your phone? I'm sure you didn't get much luck with that... The controls are barley usable and most of the gameplay you're going to be struggling with controls.
Don't worry, Stronghold 2D has easy controls! The game is completely 2D so you'll have full control with every object. Need to rotate the cannon to hit a far enemy? No need to stress, simple control buttons are implemented so you can focus on the game and not "how do I do this".
Thank you for checking out Stronghold 2D on Kickstarter. You might be saying, "This game seems pretty awesome, I'd love to help!". We would love to have you help! The best games in the market are when the creators actually listen to the users and advance the game. Once I finish the game i'm not just going to ditch it, I want the game to evolve and see world wars with a 2D experience. (wouldn't that be awesome!)
Are you a Designer? Can you design 2D Objects?
Please contact me and show me some of your ideas. Remember, I'm a programmer full-time, and I do not think i'm the best at 2D graphics. Hopefully you can help! If you're a Dribbble user that's a big bonus!
Remember! All Pledgers get the full multiplayer game for Free!
As you can see, playing Stronghold2D could be the most entertaining multiplayer game that is available for your iPad, iPhone, and All Android devices.
Credits will be seen by everyone on main screen and website!

Risks and challenges
The biggest risk for Stronghold 2D is to keep the server running, and stable. Because this is a multiplayer game that will be connecting to hundreds if not thousands of users at one time we need to have a 24/7 watch on the server. If the servers go down, Stronghold 2D will become un-usable! Thankfully, I have been running many servers and I've never had down time for more than 30 minutes. (I'm a freak about my server always running)
Other than the servers becoming flooded, Stronghold 2D doesn't have any other "real" risks that would make me think twice about this project. This game is 2D, so there are no heavy messages from server/device.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Stronghold2D doesn't only look good on a mobile device, it also looks GREAT on your computer! We will support Windows, Mac, Linux, iPad, iPhone, Android, and Windows phones
