About

a tale of teamwork in a broken world

It begins at the end. Nothing could have survived the total collapse of spacetime so it's lucky that it was only a near total collapse. Surrounded by a vast ocean of quantum chronographic static Planet Dirt only has a small number of "stable" dimensional fragments. These little twisted loops of spacetime are full of dangerous traps, distorted technology, and other memetic manifestations of temporal anxiety but at least existence is remotely possible there.

Using a combination of high level cybermancy, chaos magick, and the Memetic Predictive Data Device, The Professor and Silver the cat have carved out a slice of relative paradise known as The Safe. The Safe is a fully stabilized chronoslice capable of supporting distinct linear time and continuous quantum ego separation via optimized paradox reduction.

 

Treasure Team was formed to find the others that are trapped out there flattened by time. Exploration of these Fragments requires a team of two individuals in order to maintain quantum ego separation. Treasure Team always sticks together.

Help me finish making Ruby & Majesty: Treasure Team!

Coming to XBox One, PC, and Mac in 2018

 "Ruby & Majesty: Treasure Team also impresses with it’s charming pixel art animation, excellent soundtrack and playful dialogue. A well crafted pixel art puzzler that doesn’t take itself too seriously."

- Alpha Beta Gamer

"What sounded like a chore pleasantly gave me a good ride in what is a smart puzzle game with a streamlined design."

Ruby & Majesty: Treasure Team follows the adventures of Ruby and Majesty as they search for timeless treasure and fragments of forgotten knowledge in the most bizarre and hostile reaches of Planet Dirt. No matter what they face there is always one way forward: TEAMWORK!

Solve action based puzzles by coordinating two distinct characters, each with their own capabilities. Ruby the Human and Majesty the Bat must navigate strange environments in search of treasure and the secrets of their world. Control both characters simultaneously and solve fiendish puzzles by pushing blocks, carrying keys, dodging projectiles, fleeing creatures, and always abiding by the Treasure Team motto: PRESS ALL THE BUTTONS!

Ruby & Majesty
Ruby & Majesty

Ruby is a human with CYBER enhancements. She is a member of Treasure Team. She is incredibly strong and can push large objects. Her CYBER enhancements let her carry various cryptoquantum mechanisms and gems. CYBER!

Majesty is a bat, specifically a flying fox. She is a member of Treasure Team. She is incredibly agile and can fly over bottomless pits and other traps. Her claws let her pull chains. She likes puns.

DREAM REPORT: Hazards of Planet Dirt

Professor, As requested this is a non-exhaustive list of the various nasty contraptions that might be in the Fragments. As always you can consider this an approximation based on the available data liquid. It sure is a hostile dataset.

 Spikes | These are deadly to Ruby but Majesty flies right over them. Retractable so watch out!

Button | A layperson might think this is called a pressure plate. It's a button. Can be pushed by anything that applies enough pressure to the button.

Glurb | These manifestations of temporal anxiety just pace back and forth flapping those weird flaps. DON'T TOUCH THEM!

Wall That Moves | Moves around. Not to be confused with Moving Wall.

Spiked Wall | Like a Wall That Moves but with spikes.

Block | Big and heavy. Extremely versatile.

Rocket Face | Blows up at the slightest provocation.  

Chain | It's not a joke when I say Majesty can pull these. Works like a button but you can't push it.

NeuroDrone Light | A flying drone. A novel concept.

Flame Face | The face doesn't look happy. Spews deadly balls of flame. Watch out for the small fires!

Clacker | These things can get LOUD. They love 90 degree turns. Obviously deadly if you touch them.

Sleepy Gnasher | They look cute until they wake up and start chasing you.

Megabubble | Sometimes a bunch of small bubbles get together and a megabubble will show up and it ruins everything. These can carry you great distances but sometimes they pop over a bottomless pit.

B.A.D. Field Generator | Creates a field of "badness" that is extremely hazardous to living things.

Smooth Block | Hard to stop once it starts moving. Easily pushes Ruby and Majesty in front of it.

Electro Face | Something solid will break the circuit. Now turn up the 808.

Conveyance Belt | Takes stuff one direction only! Three different speeds! Can turn on and off. Majesty will just fly over these.

Bomb Face | An explosive with a face. Moving one will light it's fuse.

There are quite a few more contraptions and many more interactions but it’s time for me to wake up! I hope this helps. I’m sure we can make your dream come true.

Meet TheWzzard Development Team

Lead Developer John J Bohnert

This is me! I am the only person developing this game and the person who wrote all this text. My duties include many types of design, code, music, writing, art, and everything else. I will never reveal the secret of the Crystal Jewel Case.

Office Manager Majesty The Cat

This is the cat who is in charge of everything behind the scenes. She is a constant source of inspiration and very playful. Her duties include napping, playing, and office management. She likes having her chin scratched but only on her terms.

Why Kickstarter?

I’ve been developing and funding Ruby & Majesty: Treasure Team on my own and it's a lot for one person and an incredibly cute cat to handle. I am planning on expanding the sound design, further revising the levels, cleaning up the editor user interface, and adding post game challenge content too so part of the funds will go towards some much needed outside assistance with art and quality assurance.

I am so excited about all the content I’ve already created for this game but it really only scratches the surface of what the contraptions, characters, engine, and editor can do. I would love to continue to expand the game after release with lots of new content. By supporting this project now you can help make that happen.
