About

About the Game.

Fat Cheeks “The Cannonball” is a hand painted 2D endless runner for IPhone and Android! The objective is to stay alive by collecting battery power, dodging obstacles, punching enemies, and collecting acorns to help unlock upgrades. Controls will be easy to use with only two options. Tap to use battery power to fly, and swipe to punch. Both are limited by meters. Gear can be upgraded in the in app store with acorns (in game currency). Acorns can be either gained in game by playing or also purchased in the In App store. We are writing the game logic and game engine in javascript and using PIXI.js as a rendering library which supports HTML5 canvas as well as WebGL. Then we will use CocoonJS to pack and deploy to android and iOS. We will also be hosting a free version on our website and in the chrome store!

About us.

We are a small team with a big passion for gaming. Each of us shares a similar ideal to create enjoyable games and entertainment for the masses. While making money is one end goal, it's not number one on our list. We feel like making a solid product and creating a good fan base is the most important part about joining together to make these games. With over 20+ years of combined experience we have everything in place to make Fat Cheeks our debut game and easily meet every goal. Please help us by reaching our small goal before our game goes further into full production!

Our needs.

This game is a labor of love that up until this point hasn't racked up too many costs. But here we are, a hurdle that needs to be crossed to successfully launch this project. We have budgeted the lowest amount of money needed to successfully create this game, but could always use more! From equipment, advertising, and licensing costs all the money will be used up to the last cent. Scroll down to read more about the project and watch our trailer video above!

About the Team

Ryan Gallini - Master Mind and Animator. 6+ years experience animating for the advertising industry has given him the experience needed to work under stressful situations with tight deadlines. He has the drive and ambition to create this and many more games to come. He loves all video games, from MMOs to quick mobile puzzle games. Check out some his other work at ryangallini.com

Zach Carter - Lead Programmer. Zach started playing computer games on DOS and has been hooked ever since. He has a strong passion for sandbox MMOs (Ultima Online, Asheron's Call, Star Wars Galaxies and Shadowbane are some of his favorites), and he also enjoys learning about game programming. He has worked on several mods and stand alone games (http://qube-game.com/) on UE3 but lately has shifted towards developing games for the web and mobile space. Professionally he has been employed as a full-stack software engineer for the past six years.

Todd Matthews - Bassist, composer, and storyteller Todd Matthews produces emotionally-charged, imaginative music and multi-media inventions, which skate gracefully along a dark edge. Throughout his professional career, Matthews has played bass on numerous independent film scores and recorded and performed with award-winning, multi-platinum recording artists such as Michael McDonald, Yo-Yo Ma, the Pointer Sisters, Josh Groban, Itzhak Perlman, and Art Garfunkel. Additionally, he has been a part of the Richmond Symphony, West Virginia Symphony, Virginia Symphony, Williamsburg Symphonia, and the Roanoke Symphony Orchestra. Aside from his on-going work as a solo artist he also currently teaches 6th-12th grade music and plays upright bass in the indie rock band My Darling Fury (www.mydarlingfury.com), while also producing and mixing their latest album Licking Wounds.

**Regulations on Selecting Upgrades**

All items must be approved by the team to be used in game, they must fit in with the game. All selections are first come first serve, so we will not have duplication of an item.

Risks and challenges

While we already have a prototype built and are just waiting to start final production on the game. There will be obvious obstacles we will face to succeed in meeting our goals. Apple and Android will be our primary marketplaces we will be at the mercy of them to accept our game or delay its release.

The programming won't be an issue, but as we beta test the game there could be small set backs in the release date.

That being said, we are more then confident that all deadlines will be meet. We are super excited to get the next and final step started in this game!
