About

Remember when games were fun? When you didnt have to watch hour after hour of videos just to kill one Boss, when you didnt have to spend all day at the steps of Dalaran having some elitist jerk inspect your gear...lol

Survivor X goes back back to those times. You play the part of Commander, the only survivor after your ship crashes on an alien planet. Your ship is trashed.. but not unrepairable. Your ships AI still functional informs you that spares have been scattered across the surrounding areas. Your mission simple.. retrieve enough spares crates to repair your ship and escape.

Run, jump and even fly across 27 levels (more if stretch goals are met) of alien infested territory. Discover hidden rooms, secret passages and bonus rooms in your quest to escape. Recover your rifle and defend yourself. Find the jetpack and flight is possible, although not always the safest way of travel. 3 unique areas, each with there own theme stand between you and survival. Commander... lets go !

Possibly a large crate of beers and a pizza, be nice to celebrate. Seriously though... anything above the top stretch goals will go back into the game, web hosting and advertising Survivor X.

The obvious answer is simple... by making a pledge. Every pound you can afford to donate will help us immensely.Of course, you can also tell everyone you know about what we're trying to do here. Use whatever social networking channels you have. Share the links to this kickstarter with all your friends, tell your classmates, colleagues, tell everyone you know who may be interested. We're hoping to get Survivor X on Steam/Greenlight so should that happen it would be great if you guys could vote for us.

Firstly, you’ll get the satisfaction of knowing you helped us create the game. Then of course there are the all-important bragging rights…lol. You’ll get your name in the credits. So, you'll be able to tell your friends “See my name there… I was part of that.”

There are also a number of other rewards as you can see from our rewards list. A free copy of the game prior to release, limited edition art work, even the chance to design one of the games bonus levels.

We have a number of things we'd like to do with the game. Obviously, the more funding we get the more we can include in the base package. Some of our stretch goals include: Additional creatures, aliens and ambient features. Extra levels, more bonus areas and an additional boss fight will all be added. On top of that we’d like to be able to add an actual voice recorded AI rather than the digitally produced one we have now. The simple fact is the more money you help us raise the more content we can put into the finished game.

Because kickstarter is a fantastic concept and a great way to launch a new game. Let’s face it, unless you’re some major shareholder in a big games company how many people can say they directly helped finance and launch a game. On a more materialistic side, without kickstarter I couldn’t afford to purchase the necessary licenses and upgrades for third party software we need to complete the project. I really do think the wife would kill me if I spent anything else on top of what I’ve already paid out. All said, without kickstarter I just don’t think completing the game would be financially viable. . Additionally there is the ‘kicking it forward’ concept. We love the idea that by you guys helping us we can in turn help fund other worthy projects.

Risks and challenges

I guess setting a release date, in other words time! We’d like to release the game as early as possible. On the other hand, we’d love to add more features and unfortunately that takes time. We’ve tried to factor in reaching all of the stretch goals as part of the Beta and release date schedule but even the best laid plans can get hiccups. A feature might turn out to be much harder to develop than initially thought. Somebody, for some reason, may not be able to get something done in our time frame (trust I’ll be cracking the whip though if they don’t). Suddenly I have a lot more respect for those poor guys who have to project manage massive AAA games, geez the stress…lol. We will, of course, keep the community and our backers updated should anything unforeseen happen.
