About this project

Because the levels are very long (The playtime of the first level for experienced players is about 30 minutes), I decided to release my game level by level. Therefore it's practically a Early Access game. This allows me to respond better to the player's ideas, requests or criticism. I created this Kickstarter campaign, so this project can evolve into a full-fledged product.

I'm Angelo from Leipzig, Germany. As a teenager, I discovered my interest in creative work. With the Amiga 1200 and Mario Paint (for the SNES) we have made small animation films. Later I programmed small private games, which were intended only for friends and family. And now! With Jetbros comes my first big game project.

At the beginning Jetbros should be a small game, equipped with NES graphics. The goal was to great the longest possible level without loading times. The first level was well received by the test players so that I decided to develop Jetbros further. It became larger and more complex, so I invested every spare minute in this game.  

Now, after about 1 year of development, Jetbros is so far developed that it is ready for Steam Greenlight and Kickstarter.

With the money from Kickstarter I would like to work full time at Jetbros for 1 year. In order to implement as much as possible of the planned game content. After this year I hope to have earned enough money with Early Access to be able to work full-time at Jetbros. So I can finish it.

 

 

 

 


For € 5 or € 10 you get a standalone version of Jetbros including all future updates. You also get a Steam Key as soon as it is released on Steam. The € 10 version includes your name in the Credits of Jetbros.

For those who would like to Support us even more, we came up with something great: 

 

For especially generous support we find it ungrateful to simply put their names into the credits. 

And so the idea was born to integrate you in different ways into the game. Look at the example image. You see a real human integrated into the game :) 

Since we cannot offer anyone a head or body space, because it would be an immense effort to make, we had to make a few categories. 

  • For € 50 or more: Integration of your head or upper body based on a photo. (see example) 
  • For € 100 or more: Integration of your entire body based on a photo. Just think of a cool pose. ;) 
  • For € 500 or more: Integration of yourself as a boss based on multiple photos.
