We made a game called LazerGrrl. Its a fast paced pvp strategy game. Think 'Bomberman' meets RTS.
If you haven't played yet:
We would like to make an EXTRA version with lots more features.
We estimate the the full price for LazerGrrl Extra on Steam will be €12
Everyone who pledges €5 or above gets...
- LazerGrrl Extra, digital copy.
- Digital copy of the soundtrack.
- Backer Badge on your LazerGrrl account.
- Your name in game in 'Backers' page.
This game will need to have an active community of players for it to succeed. If this Kickstarter gets funded, it will show us that there is enough demand for LazerGrrl Extra for it to be a worthwhile undertaking.
The very small budget we have worked out is just the minimum to pay for food / bills while we work on these extra features.

Risks and challenges
The main risks involve 3rd parties like Steam, Nintendo, GameSparks (our backend service provider), or Unity (the engine we are using).
We are relying on them to make and distribute our game. Its possible we could have issues with them that are beyond our control.
But even if, lets say, Steam shuts down completely within the next 4 months, we will still make and deliver the game on a different platform. A problem with a 3rd party service would just introduce delays.
Honestly, there are no technical challenges we are concerned about. We've already built the free version of LazerGrrl. The Deluxe version simply expands upon systems that already work and are known to us.
From a programming point of view, I took care to always write really good maintainable code when making LazerGrrl. Up until now, adding new features has been very smooth and my production rate has been stable and reliable throughout development.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
