 WELCOME TO THE ZOMBIE TEACHER KICKSTARTER! 

Ah so you would like to know a little more about Zombie Teacher, well you've come to the right place. Zombie Teacher is a gloriously retro platforming adventure that pays tribute to the video game stars of yesterday. Your task is to help our would be villain become the star of his very own videogame. All you need to do is collect 66 vintage arcades from across the globe...sounds simple enough! 

What can best be described as a mix between Super Mario Bros 3 and Earthworm Jim, Zombie Teacher is a bizarre adventure like no other! Download the demo now and become a star on planet VideoGamia! 

WHERE CAN I PLAY ZOMBIE TEACHER?

Zombie Teacher will be released for WINDOWS, MAC and XBOX ONE. (If we hit a couple stretch goals then I'd love to be able to make a SWITCH version as well as an ANDROID one.)

THE GAMEPLAY

Combining the challenge of those classics from the 90's with super precise controls allows for some brutally beautiful action platforming. Along your journey you shall jump, bounce, climb and crawl through more than 14 unique worlds ranging from INSIDE THE HUMAN BODY to an 8-BIT ADVENTURE like no other! 

  • 66+ STAGES OF HAND DRAWN RETRO PLATFORMING
  • 14 UNIQUE WORLDS TO VISIT
  • DOZENS OF CLASSIC VIDEO GAME REFERENCES
  • MANIPULATE TIME
  • MANIPULATE GRAVITY
  • A COMPLETELY 2 PLAYER CO-OP EXPERIENCE
  • A COMPLETELY 4 PLAYER CO-OP EXPERIENCE!
  • A NO NONSENSE BATTLE MODE
  • A UNIQUE PLATFORMING RACE MODE
  • ADVENTURE GAME STYLE NARRATIVE WITH MULTIPLE ENDINGS
  • A TALKING TURTLE!

 

 

As you collect the arcade machines and complete stages, you'll encounter some familiar looking faces that will undoubtedly remind you of some gaming gems from way back when! Each set of stages features a reference or tribute to a Video Game star from your child hood, can you find them all? (some are more subtle than others)

 Zombie Teacher has a very hard working dev team comprised of a single person... My name is Adil, i'm a 25 year old high school science teacher currently working in east London. 

I've been a gamer since the age of 3 and my favorite console is the Sega megadrive (genesis). I spent countless hours kicking ass in streets of rage and many more mastering the speed of a small anthropomorphize hedgehog. video games have been part of my life for many years and its an art form that I'll always love.  

I started edgy games exactly 1.5 years ago and have been passionately working on zombie teacher since then. I started the game with no knowledge of programming or game design and have learnt much along the way. growing up with an older brother meant a lot of split screen gaming so having a co-op mode in zombie teacher is something i'm really excited about. Lets talk on twitter! :)

 (This piece of music best describes me and my taste in games)

 I’ve been a huge fan of kickstarter for a long time now. Sure it hasn't treated me all too great in the past (second times a charm!) but for me, the sense of community and collaboration is what makes kickstarter so appealing. For as long as I’ve been working on Zombie Teacher, it’s been an isolated experience. Being able to discuss potential ideas and work alongside other gamers is something I cannot wait for. As far as I’m concerned, every contributor is a new team member!

For the last 6 months I've been working on the game full-time. It's honestly been a dream come true yet sadly, now I've hit a bit of wall. I need your help to get Zombie Teacher to the finish line!

 I've worked everything out down to a T, if the funding goal is met Zombie Teacher will be made as I always dreamed it would be. (Any additional funding and stretch goals met will lead to a few crazy ideas coming off the drawing board and into the game!)

 

 If the most awesome of things should happen and we surpass Zombie Teacher's initial goal, we can aim for these 4 stretch goals! Each adds something unique and special and is outlined below:

 STRETCH GOAL 1: £3300 

Adds the "Around the World" set of stages, 5 unique countries and cultures (chosen by you!) captured in awesome Zombie Teacher style.

STRETCH GOAL 2: £3700

Adds the "Meme World" set of stages, 5 quirky levels covering dozens of memes. Cringe guaranteed. 

STRETCH GOAL 3: £4200

Adds CHASE MODE to Zombie Teacher. 15 back to back chase set pieces, can you beat them all?

STRETCH GOAL 4: £5000

Android version! If you thought Zombie Teacher was tough using a controller, imagine using touch screen thumb-sticks. I can't wait either!

Risks and challenges

Zombie Teacher is my first indie video game, a one-man project. This means like many games that have come before, there is a classic risk of "delay" in release date. Zombie Teacher will be released by July and you'll all be able to play it over the summer holidays. Whether it releases earlier than that is where delays come in to play.

Any delays will be used to polish the game and add more to the over all package allowing us as gamers to experience an even more awesome journey! It wouldn't be a classic video game if it wasn't delayed at least a few days!
