Casino Chess :  Platforms

Why are we doing this?

Casino Chess is one of many games we have lined up to release as an indie mobile game studio. We have some RPG games down the pipe but first we wanted to bring this classic game at its best  on to the mobile gaming platform.We love the fact that we are bringing a cutting edge version of one of the worlds most famous and so loved board games to the mobile gaming platforms. We love the fact that we get to put in a lot  of detail and that our fans on kick starter get to help us along the way..We'd love to make it for you!

Why are we asking for your help?

We need to raise $10K   to fund  Casino Chess's Development on the mobile platform  with a stretch goal of $195K to fund development  on all three gaming platforms. ALL of the money we receive will go into developing this game, its rewards for backers, and making it as good as we envisioned it to be! We want to make Casino Chess beyond awesome and We'll use every dollar you give us to ensure that it turns out that way.

Kick starter gaming fans collectively symbolize what we stand for as a development team - an "Island of Gamers". Game Island was started because we wanted to make fantastic FREE cutting edge games that would be appreciated by our fans and at best we wanted to take a whole new development approach by being the first mobile game Dev team that includes its fans and backers  in the design process of every game title, we want to make killer games and we want to share the ecstatic  experience with our fans.

After seeing the success of larger gaming studios on Kickstarter we have decided to take a shot at raising the  $195,000 that we need to make things happen for Casino Chess, of-course...its not as much as the million  dollar plus projects fans have become accustomed to on kick starter, but it is still quite a mile stone for us as a small game Dev team.And we'd definitely love to achieve it, as it means we can continue to make more epic  games for you.

We have seen that any project no matter the size can be successfully backed by fans who believe enough and have confidence in the project on kick starter. What we love is the fact that we are getting backed by the very same people we are making the games for, who share the same passion for games as much as we do, that way there are no compromises with publishers, plus we get to throw in a lot of cool exclusive rewards and gifts for our backers.


How will the funding be used?

The funding will be spent solely on Casino Chess. It's very simple and straightforward: we've got two months to develop this game production will commence 7 days strait after final campaign  date and will run between end of December with a deadline to complete everything by 12th of March 2014. We'll spend the funds that you give us on making Casino Chess the best possible experience.

Mainly the funds will go into Game art development, Game engine and online  systems infrastructure design for all three platforms,and funding the   specific technology we need to implement in the game, bug testing etc.We want to create the best end result possible and we'll use every dime you give us to ensure it turns out that way for you.

Risks and challenges

The most fantastic thing about kick starter is that it allows us to go directly to the people we are making the games for, with out making any compromises with big publishers. Its a great way for indie labels like us with big fantastic ideas to raise the necessary funds needed to bring awesome ideas to life. What we love about kick starter is that is it allows us to gain the support of our gaming fans who love to play games just as much as we love to make them, its even better that the platform allows us to be really transparent with our fans and backers.

The Biggest Risk associated with this project is us not raising the necessary funds, we've already got a team committed to this project. Successfully raising the funds would mean we get to complete this game and additionally we'd get keep making more epic games for our fans to enjoy.Your support would mean we'll get to bring you loads more fantastic games and exclusive gifts and perks.
