About

 

Outpost is a unique digital game in that the player can progress in multiple game environments and the game play advances are cumulative between these games.

Outpost has a unique feature in that it will donate a significant portion of its net revenue to charities. Players can monitor their own contributions.

Charities will be able to communicate to players of Outpost their own activity, such as goals accomplished, wells dug, medication distributed, and any other milestones which enhance engagement. 

Every time a charity presents one of these stories, the player has an opportunity to share the story to their social feeds, with friends, and followers.

Outpost will provide transparency within the game for players to track their donations.  Outpost will donate to large well known nonprofits such as Rainforest Alliance, WWF, American Red Cross, as well as some smaller project oriented organizations.

The Outpost is a digital game production and operation company. A major shareholder of Outpost is Left Brain Games, which has 10+ years of experience in the digital game production business.  The Left Brain Games core team has been in the digital game industry for over 20 years and has developed games for many of the big names, like Mattel and Electronic Arts. Left Brain Games is small and flexible to quickly react to the ever changing market.

By supporting the development of Outpost, you also support ongoing projects that promote sustainability, rainforest conservation, fair trade practices, and improved livelihoods for urban poor, forest dependent people, and the indigenous of the Amazon.

The Outpost is seeking an investment of $70,000 to accomplish minimum development, while additional investment will extend and improve the potential development. Left Brain Games has already invested $250,000 on game development of an ‘engine’ that will drive this game. The Outpost will be released for play approximately three months after capitalization. The Outpost will introduce additional game environments every six months  using earnings from ongoing operations.

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

We want to be realistic. Certainly, there can be unforeseen issues, but in general, all problems are solvable. With that said, we are starting with a Flash based builder style game system for allowing players to create their own Outpost. Our development and funding model allows us to grow the scope of the project with the stretch goals. The number of Outpost environments and types of mini games will be dictated by the funding.

We are expecting, as we sign on more charities, to be cross marketed by the charities providing extended additional marketing and a net feedback loop of awareness and application adoption. Because we expect to attract diverse charities, there will be cross polination and multiple opportunities for charities to attract more givers.
