      One other thing I remembered I meant to say:
      I'd be wary of the 'writer' reward - at the very least add a caveat that any content they write is subject to approval and editing. It's an appealing reward, but including that kind of backer-created content is liable to make the tone of the game uneven - especially if they're putting words into the mouths of the lead characters.

      I agree with Joshua about referring to Aleron in the third person. A couple of other points:

      Simplifying the last sentence of the Cabin section to "And his daughter's life is in danger' would be more effective.

      There isn't much indication of how the game plays - anyone who hasn't played the demo (or is deciding whether to try the demo) won't have much idea beyond 'first person adventure', which can mean several different things.

      The cast&crew section could include a link for more information about each person - previous work, twitter feed or whatever. I can google individual names, but it's nicer if I don't have to.

      I'd say 'soundtrack album' rather than just 'album' in the rewards, just for clarity's sake.

      Furthermore, it may help to elaborate on the story and gameplay in this first sections. Perhaps, include subtitles that explain gameplay features when adding pictures. Also, it may be best to refer to the player/main character by his name "Aleron" instead of saying "you". In the relationship sections using this wording will enable you to present the story better to the customer.

      looks like an interesting and suspenseful story/concept. I think you could improve the text to really bring this out. For example, in the cabin section try rephrasing. The current wording seems jumbled. Perhaps something like "Somewhere in Glacier National Park locked inside his cabin, Aleron fears for his daughter's life in the face of an unknown catastrophe. Now, working with a mysterious stranger, he must find his way out of the cabin and into the woods."

WROTE ABOUT US. [Placeholder]

Aleron's Lie is a Drama set in a Cabin in Montana, where you're locked up while your daughter's life is on the line and the only person you can talk to via Smartphone claims to be in a similar situation.

[Placerholder For Three Gifs/Screenshots]

You are Aleron. You needed some alone time so you decided to stay in a Cabin somewhere in the Glacier National Park. But all doors are locked. The Windows are bulletproof. There is no way out. The worst part: Your daughter's life is in danger but you have no idea what's going on.

[Placerholder For Three Gifs/Screenshots]

You have a Smartphone but it's not good for anything. You can call a strange woman named Nora but you're not sure if she's trustworthy. Will you trust her and work together to find a way out of your respective cabins? Or will you destroy your relationship with the only person that's left to call?

[Placerholder For Three Gifs/Screenshots]

The Puzzles will improve your relationship with Nora as you will need each other's trust to solve them but you're not sure if they're a waste of time. "Are these Vials really important or is it indeed just weird shit?"

[Placerholder For Three Gifs/Screenshots]

After your wife passed away you were alone with your daughter Mirela. The father and daughter bond that was created over the years is a strong one but not necessarily a healthy one. Your 16-year-old daughter wants to get married. Can she live without you after everything that happened? Can you live without her?

An Emotional Video Game needs an Emotional Soundtrack. Our amazing Composer Chris Heron knows how to achieve that:

We don't have any physical rewards so we can focus on the development of the game and eliminate all risk. This way there are no risks.

The Game is already in development so once the campaign is successful we can fully focus on producing a high-quality game.

Our primary focus is producing Aleron's Lie and to tell a Story Worth Telling. But it shall not end there. There are so many more Stories to tell.

"We want to tell more than one Story. There are an infinite number of Worlds and Characters to create that have the potential to change your life for the better."
"We want to tell more than one Story. There are an infinite number of Worlds and Characters to create that have the potential to change your life for the better."

We love what we do because we believe in the power of Story-Driven Games. The right Story with the right Characters can change your life. I know that's true. I know that because "The Last of Us" changed my life. I know we can have the same impact on others. 

POSITIVE COMMENTS [Placeholder]

 

Do you care about Story-Driven Games? Then back our project and bring something great to life. You would love to but you can't? But you REALLY care about Games and believe in the power of Storytelling like we do? Then at least Support it by sharing our campaign. Thank you very much! :)

Risks and challenges

There are no risks. All risks have been already taken. As long as we can pay the voice actors who are the heart of this game, the talented RisingLane Team will take care of the rest. That's how we have done it with the demo and when the Campaign is successful we will do the same with the full-game and deliver a high-quality product unless the whole cast and crew will be locked up in a Cabin with bulletproof windows. But that's unlikely...right?
