About this project
Every reward tier includes a copy of the final game when released! Now game will be ported to Lunix and Ouya as well.
Caveman's Revenge began in 2010 with the idea to make the best game possible for ios. Shortly within a year the work came to a halt due to lack of time and funding. The game started as a side project specifically for the iphone. Now through the power of Kickstarter we can build for pc, mac, android, and iphone. Plus, make the game much bigger and better.
We're also going to include our backers in the development so we can create a fun game for everyone. Our backers will be able to design their own creatures, levels, or any idea to make the game even better. We want this game to be created by gamers for gamers.
Estimated release: Summer 2014.
Caveman's Revenge is a new 3D action adventure game played in the classic third person view. You play as the caveman in search of your kidnapped wife. The locals have taken her captive in order to offer her to their main enemy, a T-Rex. You must save her before she becomes a t-rex's meal.
This game will be packed with tons of features such as story and survival mode. In story mode there will be loads of beautifully designed illustrations to tell the tale of your epic journey through the roughest environments back when earth was ruled by predators and man was not on top of the food chain.
You'll have to fight off enemies and hunt for food in order to survive. You will not only fight enemies on land but underwater as well. You will get to soar through the skies on top of a pterodactyl, run away from stampeding dinosaurs, and you'll get to fight the final boss, the T-Rex.
In survival mode the game play will be a hack and slash RPG.Your only goal is to survive.
So far we have the basic control movement of the caveman running around. At the moment we've inplemented joystick controls for the iphone but are open to adding other controls as well. For pc and mac the mouse and arrows will be used for the controls.
Below is the caveman and enemy. Caveman animations will include run, jump, death, attack1 and 2, swim, death underwater, attack underwater, spear attack, spear throw, and much more.
The enemy animations will include run, attack, and death.
In story mode you will play through each level following the story till the end. We want to keep the game as real as we can as if you were really living back in prehistoric times. To gain health you will need to hunt for food using your club and spear. You will have the ability to kill your enemies from a distance by throwing your spear. This will come in handy when fighting the t-rex.
• Loads of beautifully designed illustrations included in story mode.
• Run from a stampeding herd of dinosaurs.
• Final boss fight with a T-Rex!
We'll be using Unity to code the game since it's the best game engine for small independent developers. We've already started a prototype of the game showcasing the basic controls and animations such as run, jump, attack, swim, etc.
Environment is for testing purposes only. It will not be in game. Game play footage is not final.
The funds will primarily go for programming the game. Additionally, a small team of artists will come in and create the environments, creatures, dinosaurs, etc. for the game. Here's what we need.
This guy will be with us from day 1. As the art and animations are created we'll be testing the game fully in all platforms.
• Environment Artist
So far we have several environment levels we've like to add such as a dinosaur boneyard, snow, lava, night, underwater, and many more.
• Character Modeler/Textures
More creatures will be created plus the final boss, a t-rex. All secondary creatures will be roaming around in the background. Caveman will be able to interact with all creatures.
Lots of animations will be created.
Every backer will get a copy of the final game upon release.

Risks and challenges
Making any game is challenging. Even more challenging without any help. The visuals is the easy part, transitioning them into 3D is not so easy as there are many steps to complete a single model and getting it ready for the game. That's why a small team is needed to balance the workload and to make sure every step is done correctly artistically and technically.
Our team is ready to tackle any obstacles that we may encounter. After all, our backers will be there to lend there support and provide feedback all the step of the way.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
