Abomi Nation is a roguelike monster-collecting RPG inspired by Pokémon's "Nuzlocke" Hard Mode. Each new run will give you different Abomis, different areas, and a whole new Abomi Nation for you to explore!

Abomi Nation is a land where no traditional animals live – only some supernatural abominations known as Abomis. Something mysterious has happened throughout its land, and all the native creatures have turned savage against people. Some humans, though, realized that when Abomis are raised from birth, they can be taught to only fight in self-defense. So, these Abomi Wranglers try to raise a team powerful enough to travel to the heart of Abomi Nation, where they can find out more about its mysterious past.

Abomi Nation is planned to launch in the first half of next year (2018) on Steam. Making a pledge of $10 or more to this campaign will preorder you your very own Steam Key, which will be given to you on launch!

Console builds aren't currently supported by GameMaker, but that's looking like it might change in the future.

That number is always growing! The plan is to release the game with 100 Abomis in it. After it's in a finished state, more Abomis should be released gradually in free updates.

$5,000 in Canadian dollars (~$3,800 USD) is enough to cover my living expenses for 8 months. Though it'll be tight, that seems like a reasonable development schedule if I'm able to work on Abomi Nation full-time. If the campaign is unsuccessful, then I will still work on Abomi Nation, but you may not see the finished result for a few years. I'm trying to cover only the bare minimum costs since I only have to worry about my own expenses.

Any money over the original budget will be put towards bettering the game – maybe I can bring on some other people to commission some nice art or music. Whatever helps me deliver the Abomi Nation that I've wanted to share with the world for years.

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

This is the first time I've attempted a project of this scope, and my first time using GameMaker. It does, however, seem like the logical next step after producing Flash games for years. I've been falling into GameMaker and GML quite easily given my past experience, and I'm no stranger to large projects (I worked solo on one of my Flash games for 3 years while going through university). The trickiest parts of the engine are done. Creating the remaining features shouldn't be terribly hard.

Should the crowdfunding prove unsuccessful, I will continue to produce Abomi Nation. There will, however, be an enormous difference in development time if I'm required to work full-time while also developing this game.
