First off thank you for taking the time to check out our Kickstarter project. Anarchy Enterprises has been developing independent games for over a dozen years. Our first retail game Moon Tycoon came out way back in 2001, but this is our first crowd-sourced project. We are extremely excited to be able to work more closely with you – the people who actually play our games!

Sometimes game development feels like working behind closed doors. When working with a publisher, us developers can get isolated from the people that are most important to the game development process – the players. Game developers tend to have to deal with publishers, distributors, hardware techs, lawyers, corporate middlemen and a myriad of others that will never end up playing and enjoying the games that are being created. Anarchy Enterprises has always been a small, indie studio that would like to stay directly connected with game players, and now we have a tremendous opportunity via Kickstarter to make that relationship even closer.

Devil’s Cove is a classic point and click adventure that we are making for the PC, MAC, iPhone, iPad and Android Phones and Tablets. The adventure takes place in the cursed harbor town of Devil’s Cove where a series of heinous crimes have been committed. The sinister Plague Doctor is wreaking havoc and the town is cowering in fear. Even worse, the local authorities appear to be complicit and have silenced all who have tried to stop these tragedies. Time is running out - and you are the only one who can solve the mystery, discover the darkest secrets of Devil’s Cove, and banish the evil forever.

That’s a great question. The number one reason we have decided to make our new game a Kickstarter project is that we can cut out all the middlemen and work directly with you – the game players. Financing video games is usually done through publishers or investors who can have an important role to play, but also their funds and support can come with strings attached. To make the most enjoyable game possible, and to reduce the risks for all parties, we only want to be held accountable to you!

$1 - $10,000. We are making this game for you, so please be a part of the experience by being a contributor. We have a ton of great rewards listed below:

We sincerely appreciate the time you have taken to read about our Kickstarter project. We hope that if you have made it this far we’ve grabbed your attention enough to make you want to be part of the process. The making of Devil’s Cove will be an amazing experience for everyone involved and we hope that you will join us.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Actually, every game we make is a bit of a risk. If we self fund an entire game and it doesn't sell (it happens!) then we’re in big trouble, and we have to eat cardboard boxes for a while until we can find more funding. So we usually end up self-funding up to the beta level, and then let publishers or investors take a look. But with funding from the players themselves, we can make the game just the way YOU want it to be, reducing the risk for ALL parties.

FAQ

  • We understand that there is a sizable group of gamers running Linux and we definitely want to get the finished game into your hands.

    We are using Unity3D to develop Devil's Cove. There are many great reasons for why we are using Unity3D, but probably the most important is the ability to publish to so many platforms. Good news - the next release of Unity3D (version 4) promises to support Linux!

    Last updated:
  • We are very excited by OUYA - it has to the potential to be really huge, especially for indie developers like us! The only issue with OUYA is that it has not been released yet, so we do not want to make any promises at this point. Since we are developing in Unity3D and will already be publishing to Android we feel confident that a OUYA version is a strong possibility!

    Last updated:
  • We plan to release Devil’s Cove in English, German and French, and are looking into releasing other languages as well. We have also received some inquiries from backers about a community supported localization system, where backers would be able to contribute to localizing the game. Do you like this idea? If so, we’ll set it up to expand the number of languages included when Devil’s Cove launches - so let us know what you think!

    Last updated:
  • No, it's NOT a Hidden Object game. We've done many casual games in the past, but wanted to try something different with this one. We want to make this a full-blooded Adventure game. Ultimately, we want to make this game with the input of the players. If you demand Hidden Objects minigames, in theory we could put them in - but so far we don't think fans of old-school Point & Click Adventures want that kind of gameplay, so we weren't planning on it.
