About

Paw Fury's Concept Art
Paw Fury's Concept Art

There is a horrible place in the minds of all living beings, a place of torture and agony, where there dwells deformed beings and crooked twinkles of hatred. You can hear them when you are alone and close your eyes, the nausea and the cold sweat that announce to you that there is no hope and that one day, they will reign on earth, as they did countless aeons, under the command of their disgusting and pustulant King, Ctulhu, until they were stopped by unfathomable heroes, who managed to seal it for thousands of years, with the secrets of the ninja's arts, and their tenderness.  

Paw Fury is a platformer beat'em up video game with Metroidvania style elements, with craftables weapons and armors and three playable characters with totally different abilities and weapons; this gives Paw Fury a big replay value. 

We opted for this mix of styles for our first video game, because these are the kind of games that we have always loved, action packed with a good share of puzzles, gathering and armament options. 

We got our inspiration from games like Megaman, Metal Slug, Castlevania, among many other games that despite of time they don't get old nor lose the fun factor. The characters in Paw Fury grant the game a unique personality, using comedy as the cornerstone to develop a story of world conquest and cuteness. Paw Fury's official website.

Paw Fury allows you to go from shooter to beat'em up depending on the character you choose to play. The stars of this story are Pugginstein, Shaggrath y P-ludis.

Pugginstein wields firearms, machine guns and cannons. Furthermore, his armor is equipped with a jetpack that helps his movement, because he's the least nimble character of them. His armor has a unique ability, it can transform into a tank too. By crafting new weapons, Pug can improve damage, more area of effect and other kinds of enhancements. Crafting his armors he will be more resistance to physical damage, able to use his jetpack for longer periods of time, and also a more powerful tank, etc.

Shaggrath is a black ninja cat that is a master of swords and chains. He's the most dexterous of our three heroes, he can make extra jumps in the air and hide in the shadows. Crafting his equipment he can be even faster, improve his weapons reach and cause extra damage, etc.

P-ludis is the calmest one, and the strongest too. He mainly attacks with his iron fist weapons, but he's also able to use his Ki to strike with energy explosions and create magic-like effects. P-ludis's chooses to fight close range, as his hits are very powerful. Crafting fist weapons he can improve his damage and Ki usage. He can craft special items that will teach him new abilities.

The stages will not be linear, they will allow exploration in each mission, so the player could gather the needed items to craft his new gear. New and different weapons will grant access to new zones, big and small, as a result, the game experience will vary not only based on the character you play, but the different weapons you craft.

Missions in the main path will reveal segments in the story, confront the players against the main villains and will ultimately lead to the great final battle against the scariest and most powerful enemy.

We have been in the software development business for several years, earning experience in a lot of development fields such as web sites, mobile applications, and many others. After work for third parties we decided to begin a project of our own and so Paw Fury was born. We always dreamed about making video games, but either because we lack of resources or time, we have reserved it until now. Kickstarter is the platform that can finally make possible our goal.

We want the kickstarter community to help us finish our game, Kickstarters is the place where we can find support from those who share the nostalgia of the metroidvania genre and who, like us, have also dreamed of making one on their own.

With your help we can make a much better video game than if we only used our free time and limited resources, it will be more professional and will have way more content.

For now, we only have planed to release Paw Fury on Windows, Linux and Mac. But we don't discard the idea of releasing on other platforms.

Of course, backing our campaign will have it's rewards, not only you will help making this game a reality and playing it before anyone else, you can also get items that will only be available for this Kickstarter campaign.

Risks and challenges

As developers, we know the risks of starting an ambitious project with a well defined budget. Our biggest challenge will be finishing our first video game and having it ready on time. That's why we have made this campaign based on game features that we know we can deliver, and even though we have other ideas that would like to see in the game, these will only be made it if we can finish the game in time with everything we have planned.

On the development part, we are very confident that we can make the game full for December 2017, and with help from Kickstarter we can hire professionals for art and music.
