Kewpie - Jazzy is a new 3D platformer inspired by the games of the golden era of the genre such as: Banjo Kazooie, Donkey Kong 64, Super Mario 64, etc...
Kewpie is a cat that loves adventures. Jazzy is a Pirate Parrot always searching for treasure. Together they are the perfect treasure hunting duo! Inspired by the fuzzy and colorful characters of Banjo-Kazooie, Kewpie and Jazzy are here to take you on a new adventure full of exploration in gorgeous 3D worlds, with items to collect, puzzles to solve and lots of fun in-between! With our dream soundtrack, you'll be immersed in a fun and beautiful universe!
Each character has their own unique special abilities. Kewpie can run really fast with her four legs and grab branches with her tail, while Jazzy can fly, glide, or help Kewpie jump higher! With their abilities combined they can reach all-new heights!
The Duo Protagonists: Our treasure hunting duo were designed to bring the most fun and satisfying experience platforming experience ever! We accomplish this through keeping the spirit of the old 3D platformers while adding new moves, abilities, and playable friends for Kewpie.
Multiple combinations: Throughout your adventure, you'll find numerous friends to help you overcome obstacles. For instance, why not swap out Jazzy and take an octopus with you? Poptopus has unique abilities of its own, like shooting ink and helping Kewpie to swim faster! This is just one of the many friends that Kewpie will find throughout the game.

Collect Them All: Inspired by the great "collect-a-thon" era of gaming, there are hundreds of Gold Coins, Gold Ingots, and much more to collect in each world. Take on the challenge of exploring all of the secrets and completing all of the tasks to fully complete each world! Use your Gold to open new areas in the hub world! No worries, though - it's not necessary to find all the items to go to next area.
Side-Missions, New Outfits And Fur Spray: In each world, you'll find a variety of characters that will give you tasks for a reward, usually new clothes for Kewpie or fur spray to change her fur color. Complete all the tasks and fill your closet with all sorts of new accessories to use whenever you want!
A Huge Cast Of Characters: More than 20 secondary characters inspired by the classics that will (probably) help you. Side-quests, races, battles, football and many more fun activities await you in each world!
Conquer The World: Complete all the challenges, collect all the items and defeat the boss in each world to conquer it and save the land from the evil Conjurer Captain Cutlass. After you conquer a world, flags of Kewpie-Jazzy will appear all over it, showing everyone who rules that world.
Film Quality Graphics: Unreal Engine 4 provides us with the best tools to make you feel like you're inside a big-budget animated feature. Our team is always working to improve and add new details to the worlds to make them feel even more alive.
There will be more than 10 worlds in Kewpie-Jazzy. Each one contains challenges you can complete to collect Gold Ingots, the main currency in the game. Use them and Gold Coins to unlock new worlds and open new areas of the hub-world!
Each world contains ten Gold Ingots and one-hundred Gold Coins, plus side-missions! You don't need to complete everything to go to the next world, but if you do collect and complete everything, you will conquer the world! Flags of Kewpie and Jazzy will be placed all over the stage. How stylish! And it'll even help you to get to final world faster!
If our initial Kickstarter funding goal is reached, backers can be assured that the Dokycamp team will deliver a complete, polished and really fun game for PC. The Windows version will launch day one with the Linux and Mac versions following shortly. However, our dream is to launch the game on all platforms at the same time. But, in order to accomplish such a huge task on time, we need to hire more professionals, and that means additional resources are required. That's why we have a list of additional extras that we'd love to deliver, in order to have enough resources and make Kewpie-Jazzy an even better game.
If sufficiently funded, Kewpie-Jazzy will be released for Windows, Mac, Linux, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 day one of release.

Dokycamp is a team of highly experienced personnel. With dozens of projects under our belts and tons of hours dedicated to our passion of making games. We are really confident we'll be able to reach the quality level that Kewpie-Jazzy the and backers deserve.
We developed many other video games such as Aeris adventures, Side Effect, Sonic souls (One of the first games made by Doky), etc... People have supported us in awesome ways since the begining. Here are some examples:
Our plan is to have Kewpie-Jazzy ready to ship on PC, Mac and Linux by May 2017. Console versions will follow shortly after if the stretch goal is reached. However, if our crowdfunding is a big success and our stretch goals are met, then we will look into securing the resources required to pull off a simultaneous, day-one release on all major console platforms alongside PC, Mac and Linux.
Risks and challenges
Making a video game can be a hard task. Oftentimes, there are financial problems that crop up providing unexpected challenges that we're confident our team of professionals will solve thanks to their experience. Fortunately the Dokycamp team has collectively been involved in more than 3000 hours of game development and much of that time was working in the 3D platformer genre.
Another challenge will be to deploy all versions of the game on the same day. Our team in Dokycamp is working really hard and investing their own money to be able to do this but with your help we should be able to get it done virtually worry-free.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
