About

Hey There! So we're finally in the final months of what was a two year process to make a retro-style throwback game reminiscent of early 80's & 90's console titles. "PLATOOTH: Children of the Nam" is difficult to say the least. Our goal was to recreate those controller throwing moments where the game seems to laugh at you for dying over and over. We think we've succeeded...

So You're a Fairy... You are Roger the ToothFairy, dropped into Vietnam to find the evil ToothFairy, Rupert. He has the wings. He has the power. He has the fairy wings! Travel through space, time, and a giant kitchen to stop Rupert, while using your arsenal of teeth, floss, and tooth paste!

For consoles? Not really... This game is being built exclusively for OSX with the hopes of being brought to the Apple App Store in the near future. The game still needs some work however. We're looking for funds for finishing costs to fix bug issues, polish levels, finish the original soundtrack, and make this game as good as we possibly can.

You're Going to Die!  We promise. It may look cartoony and simplistic, but that's where you'll realize just how deceiving this game can be. On top of that, we've added 3 hidden levels, 7 collectable map pieces, and 3 hidden weapons. Every one, harder to find then the last. We wanted to make a game that was challenging, yet rewarding; like the feeling you got when you found all of the hidden capsules in MegaMan X or beating Ridley in Super Metroid. Those games were classics in part because of the hours spent trying to beat one spot in one level, and that's what drove us in designing this game.

This Game Isn't Easy...and it won't win any awards. It will make you want to tear your hair out though. This is a gamer's game, built by gamers for gamers. It's unforgiving and relentless. And that is what it makes it FUN! Every level is completely different from the last. One level you're in a submarine, the next warping through space portals, or you're running around in a giant refrigerator, fighting popsicles. It's the level design and humor that separates this game from others. We never wanted the game to feel repetitive, so each level gets progressively harder and adds challenges you haven't come across before.

Stretch Goals. If we meet and exceed our goal of $13,000 and make it to $15,000, we plan on adding two more levels at launch! Maybe the pyramids? Maybe a giant water park? Who knows. But we know you'll hate/love us for making them as difficult as possible!

So to Finish... We are so pleased this game is nearing completion and are even more excited that we can bring it to a broader audience via KickStarter. We've added lots of different incentives for all tiers and truly hope you break your controller playing this game!

Risks and challenges

Due to the difficult nature of the game, we know that this is for a niche audience. It's for gamers who are looking for a serious challenge, and love to secret hunt. So we need to find the right audience for this game. That, coupled with lack of finishing funds, are all that keep this game from completion. Help us save the world against popsicles and giant chattering teeth! Please!
