What is Tread Lightly?
More than anything, a game that is supposed to make you feel - an experiment in interaction. There's a strong emphasis on the integration of gameplay mechanics and narrative, but whether the game proves itself evocative in the end is up to you.
Tread Lightly is a short game to be finished in one sitting, and will be absolutely free to play. I firmly believe that, whenever possible, games made with meaning should be openly accessible to everyone. Any Kickstarter investments will increase the quality of the finished product in the form of shipped special-edition hardcopies, delivered to backers after the game's release. Anything left over will go immediately back into game making - I'm not interested in profit - I just want to keep making games.
What is it about?
There are some intense themes visited, and they'll all relate back to a lamp that you'll use to light your way through the world. All in all, I'd go on about this project forever in writing, but particularly with this kind of game it's important to start the first scene with a clean slate. Still, I hope that by watching my introductory video you're almost as excited as I am!
Risks and challenges
Working with production and delivery is always a challenge, especially when you need to rely on multiple third parties to get things in motion. I've worked extensively in shirt sales and game development before, so am familiar with what it takes to ensure that products are made correctly and reach their owners on time.
I'm committed to getting everything sent and done without delay - this game's supporters are the priority in everything.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
