WHY KICKSTARTER

new game, who this ?
new game, who this ?
Greetings,  

My name is Kian. Currently I'm the sole developer for this game. I have begin to plan this project for the past year and within this recent mouths dedicating to it.

'Sleeping With Third Eye Open' is coming from an long time itch of mine on choice and consequences aspect of role-playing games and My fascination of hotel settings, black art theme and Thai local believes which i feel are underrepresented.  


Currently,The game story-line is the most planned out and almost complete while the art and architecture are being designing along the process. the basic core mechanic is programmed but there's so much more i wish and excited to add. I have been plan for this project for about a year, investing my time to design and determine to have the game be made. As I'm choosing Kickstarter for funding myself to work on it full-time. And, more importantly to include people working on it too , collaboration and develop a team, with artists musicians and voice actors , making this game become more complete.  

Thank you so much and, I'm very appreciate for all the support,   

-Kian
