We made a game called LazerGrrl. Its a fast paced pvp strategy game. Think 'Bomberman' meets RTS.

Watch the launch Trailer.

If you haven't played yet:

We would like to make an EXTRA version with lots more features.

Notes.

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.


Why Kickstarter?

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.

The team.

Brian McElroy – Game Designer, Director, Programmer.

Pablo Bredow – Game Artist.

Peter Jones - Sound Designer. 

Jairo Lopes (Nocht Communications) – Business Developer, PR and Marketing.

Michael Zytkow – Business Developer, PR and Marketing.

Risks and challenges

Risks.
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.

Challenges.
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.

    Original design log book

    I (Brian McElroy) keep an A3 log book for each game I develop. Its a habit I've retained from my training in architecture. I also think quite visually, so I sketch everything.
    All my ideas, sketches, notes, diagrams, doodles etc. from the very first inception of LazerGrrl, until now, are there.
    By leafing through it, you can see the entire design process as the game developed.
