About

Rogue AI is a game I built for the android tablet.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rogueai

With zero experience and a dream, I spent $500 and bought a tablet, paid my $25 developer fee and got to work. 300 hours later (spread out over several months), Rogue AI was born.

The game sales were completely terrible due to google hiding tablet apps from the market. Luckily a nice gentleman on androidpolice.com ran an article on me and the numbers skyrocketed.

Yet it is not enough. I have yet to even make up the cost of buying the tablet, let alone a profit. Which brings us to this kickstarter project.

I want to see how many iPad users are interested in this game before I spend double the amount of the android gear and spend another 50 hours perfecting it on a new platform.

The game is built, working, selling and highly rated by those who have played it so far. So you can rest assured a minimal timeframe between the end of the kickstarter project to the beginning of human beatdowns.

About the Game

Rogue AI is essentially a defensive strategy game with a tower defense feel. You harvest resources and defend yourself in a variety of different situations. The number of maps is small, but each has its own "mode" feel to it, as well as multiple difficulties to keep you busy.

I am not a fan of the "press a to jump", "congrats, you earned an achievement for pushing the a button, would you like to share this with your friends?" gaming category. I prefer the game that starts you off with a loaded pistol and two soldiers with their backs turned towards you. Games that, when you try them out for the first time, your suddenly out sick from school the next day.

I took a hint from veteran game developers and concentrated my efforts on not making the biggest game imaginable (the one you'll never finish). I worked hard, threw out elements that were not fun and polished the crap out of it.

So why $1293.00?

$400 for iPad + $600 for Mac Mini + 7% sales tax. $100 Apple Developer registration, $5 box of twinkies, 10% Kickstarter / Amazon fee = $1293.00
