As some of you may have noticed we just added the most epic tier you will ever see on a Kickstarter campaign..ever..seriously!
The tier is for $5000 and it includes everything you would expect like the limited edition version of Elysian Shadows with all the physical and digital extras, but we took it up a couple of notches. Way past 11!
For those who have been inspired by our YouTube series "Adventures in Game Development" to become indie game developers or learn computer programming or those who chose that path as a life choice yourselves, The Mentor gives you the opportunity to travel down to us in Alabama, all expenses paid for one whole week and we will teach you what ever topic you want!
If you know C++ but want to improve your skills? We will teach you Intermediate or Advanced C++ to kickstart your development journey and endow you will the skills to finally finish that game concept you have been working on.
If you already know C++ but are having trouble learning or picking a graphics API to start your project, travel down to us and we will teach you beginner to intermediate OpenGL ES.
If you are totally epic and already know C++ and OpenGL but want to know how we solved some of the challenges we came across when developing Elysian Shadows like our dynamic lighting engine, rigid body physics system or even how we use LUA on the Dreamcast? What about developing for the Dreamcast console? We can show you the way!
Which ever path you are on you will get the opportunity to meet some of the team, visit the place where we make our dreams come to life and most of all - you get to play with our tools and software! That's right, take a look under the hood at our engine architecture, multiplatform framework or how we build levels with our editor!
This really is the ultimate opportunity for those who want to push themselves further.
Some of you may know we are always open with our community and even a lot of our team were once fans of our project for years until they reached out to us. We always look for talented people to join our team, and who knows, given the right direction you could be the next person to join our team and help resurrect the 2D RPG and make it relevant by todays standards!
Strategy Guide Add-on
You asked and we delivered! Get yourself the physical strategy guide by adding $29 to your current pledge amount. No need to change your tier to anything higher (unless you want to) just add the amount and let us know which add-on you would like. You can find more add-ons on our campaign page :)
Lastly, we have hit Kickstarter full steam ahead and we are doing very well so far. I'm sure some of you are aware how Kickstarter works? The beginning period is usually smooth sailing and it's common to see an influx of donations early on like we had. Unfortunately, all good things don't last forever. The next 3 weeks are going to be a real challenge and we have seen our community and backers be really supportive of our project. We just need that to continue as much as possible because the sad thing is if we don't hit our goal we would find it really difficult to complete the project within the 18 month timeframe. We are extremely dedicated people (as our 7 year YouTube series shows) and the project will continue but at a much slower pace.
Thank you for all the support so far! Let's smash that goal and bring the 2D RPG back to life!
