About

Making film of Zachary's Note

Little usb Zachary, playing with long box, to solve the puzzle.

What happened to Zachary, waking up in a junk box...?


A warehouse in college full of ruined machines. Why did Zachary end up here?

Zachary is a young USB that desperately needs help from his mom. But he finds himself in an old box all by himself. How did Zachary get into a junk box full of broken machines in a warehouse? Where is his mom?


Memories of mother...

Could he ever find his mom and be happy again? Zachary will need your help.


Do not forget, Zachary is a USB cable!

A little, scared, mere USB cable Zachary does have something different, a special ability that no machines can do. He can do anything. I mean anything only if he knows how. In Zachary's world, full of machinery, You HAVE TO help him find his mom.


Sometimes not. So you need to use some object.

When you gain power from near terrain...




Uniqueness -Ever experienced using a USB cable? Zachary's Note has many different quizzes and puzzles, and they are interconnected with the natures of USB memory sticks. If a train does not move? You have to give it power. And it still does not move? You will have to install the software. But what if it is something that Zachary cannot put himself in? You have to find the right adapter for it. I will certainly not be an easy job.


Have you ever been succeeded in putting a USB cable on a single try? Same for Zachary, It takes lots of work...
Does a machine ever operate only with a USB cable? It is also the same. You have to continually give the right software and power to move Zachary.
He is not just a tiny USB cable. He works with his high power, and surroundings to solve any problems.
You can put a USB cable and share what it has once it is connected, and it works the same in the game.

You have to KNOW how and to what a USB cable works, to operate various machines throughout the play. You will also have to find the right way to use the stick to solve the quizzes.


Do you see a machine in front of you? Give it a try, and it should work.

Anything is possible - You can touch, kick and use various objects in many different ways in reality. It is not much different in Zachary's Note. Everything you see, and that you run into, well interact just as in real life. If you have to go across the water? You can throw a floating ball, boxes, books, whatever it takes, to help you move across to the other side. It will not be easy, as it is not easy to step on a ball, even in reality in the world. There are no specific rules, nor ways to solve any problems. You have to find your routes with creativity.


Here is the process of our work

Put yourself into the story - Chat with different NPCs to get help and solve in-game puzzles. It will lead you to be part of the dreamy story, maybe something like you have heard in your bedtime long ago. Every tone and Fx of the game will let you feel more of it. Through the game, be Zachary dealing with his world.




NPCs are not always smart..:)



Zachary's Note is a 3D Physics, exploration-based, puzzle-adventure game with a story. The game will initially support PC / Mac. We plan to add more platforms, especially Nintendo Switch and VR after the desktop version is released. 


Seeing the world with the perspective of a USB cable?

Being small will make the world seem very different. That’s how we started to design this game. Our team wanted to focus on our daily lives but with a new perspective. We all need USB cable in our lives, right? So what if we see the world from the view of that device, connecting to something even strange-would it is scary, Not knowing what will happen when you connect yourself to something new? If you can nod, you are so ready for the game.


To help you dive into the game, we used great references that could make everything seem so real and used Unreal engines to show them in full-3D design. If you enjoyed the games like Zelda, Mario, Little Big Planet, and so on, and if you want to experience some strangeness in your life you are most welcome to support our team. Every support you made will count, and it would be a great help to finish this game. I promise you will be glad to be part of this journey.



It's not easy to board games to Zach...



Our goals are as follows:


Rewards




Here's a quick breakdown of how the campaign funds will be used. 



One game requires a vast fortune. For example, finding a visual effect and a library can be one example. This library we got last time was about $100 - which helped us design a super flexible rope in the game. It has been one and half years since we had everything covered by ourselves, enjoying every moment of the process. However, now we are very short of our budget, and that is how we got to reach you.

We have also supported other games before, and we know what it means and how important it is to keep the promise. We will spend every penny to make the game better-buying Fx and Libraries, replacing broken devices, and rent for the office, etc. Please be the key to making this game beloved by players around the world. We appreciate your help in advance.




Our studio is located in a small town, where the lights were never turned off for the last 18 months. We would rather spend time on developing Zachary’s Note than to sleep, and thankfully all our members are on the same page. Occasionally our friends visit only to check if we are alive - haha. But it’s all good because we are chasing our dream- to show Zachary’s Note to the world. Now, all we need is your support to help us keep going! :)  

We appreciate you taking the time to read about our project! Send us any questions you may have, or hang out with us through these other channels:

Risks and challenges

Games are like art. You can create anything from nothing, and that is what we love about games. We wish you could all jump into Zachary’s Note and feel the world of warmth and joy we have prepared for you.

Please come back us up for defeating undermining obstacles- unexpected problems and costs. With your help, we will keep our words we had for ourselves and with you. The game will be done in the time we promised with the best story and quality. We can’t wait to show it to the world especially with all the truthful supports. Be one of Zachs!

Thank you for your time and support. :) CHEERS!
