We chose Kicksarter to launch our campaign to have a first experience in the world of the video game. We are just students, so the crowdfunding campaign allows us to help to pay the development as software licenses to create the game. But also to help us cover our living costs to survive during the time of the development.
Risks and challenges
It’s our first game, so this game is realy important for us. We wanna make something cool which people can talk about and have fun.
We wanna have a game with many monster and “boss”
We wanna make a game which have a long gameplay life.
All those innovations can be realized but requires time and financing support. We want to stay close to our community and keep our full creativity. Thats why Kickstarter poses itself as the best solution for Helwyr.
We are willing to adapt Helwyr on the PSvita in a special version that exploit the unique features of the console. Founding permitting, we would be able to have the time and finance for the porting of this version.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
