About this project

Dark Hope

You wake up in a small room with a massive headache in a strange facility seemingly devoid of life. You find on a table next to you a photo of a child and a medical chart with a bleak outlook.
Who is this child?
Who are you?
Where are you and why?

What was that strange noise?

Game Play

Inspired by classic puzzle adventure games Myst, Riven and more recent titles like Amnesia 

Dark Hope is a puzzle adventure game set in a steampunk world where electricity started and ended its existence with the light bulb. The vast majority of the puzzle are environmental mechanical puzzles and discovering clues as to the nature of this strange facility.

Why Kickstarter and who we are

This is a passion project for the three of us involved.

Chris- The programmer

Ron- The artist

Alex- Concepts and music

However even with passion being the driving force some funds are still needed. While we continue our regular 9-5 jobs and are able to work late into the night on our love. 

Money used from this campaign will aid in covering the cost to hire additional artist, pay legal and software licence fees.

Risks and challenges

The major risk for this project is launch being delayed due to the small team size and limited funds requiring more work from the two primary developers.

However analyzing the currently planned size of the game and the rate of progress an early 2018 release is a very realistic target. Additional funds however would allow us to both speed up the process, Up the quality and expand the game play by on boarding additional talent.

While this is the teams first attempt at a commercial 3d pc game the team has experience in both the mobile realm with smaller 2d games and experience with general software development both front and back end.
