About this project

 

 

 

Alluna and Brie features a turn based combat engine we've created from the ground up in Unity! We've got an early pre-alpha video you can check out below!

The game is part life-sim, which means there'll be heaps of visual novel segments like the one below, where you'll be able to make choices that influence the flow of the story!

Brie will have a new sprite in the game, but it's currently in production so we've used her Max's Big Bust sprite. Don't worry, she'll get a whole new set of outfits and expressions in this game!

Monsters

We're going to have over forty unique monsters to fight in the game, and they won't just be palette swaps either. You can check out some of our finished monsters below!

 

Animation

If you've played our previous game Max's Big Bust - A Captain Nekorai Tale then you'll know we're a big fan of anime cutscenes. We're planning on adding a bunch of awesome cutscenes to Alluna and Brie, just like the one below.

Day to Day Life as a Magical Girl

Alluna and Brie features heavy life sim elements, and in between battles the game will play out like a visual novel. You'll control Brie and choose where she goes and who she talks to, and spending time with friends will unlock new combat abilities and secret event scenes. However, you're going to need to keep an eye on the in-game clock, because every action takes time, and there's only so many hours in the day!

Each character has their own set of skills, and you'll have to balance everyone's combat experience if you want to have an effective party!

Romance

What, did you think we wouldn't have romance in this game? Check out an early sketch of Matt, Brie's main love interest!

Brie's had the hots for Matt for years, ever since they went to high school together. After bumping into each other at Mermaid Spiker's training the two of them hit it off again, but things might not be so straightforward with Matt...

Mermaid Spikers

If these girls are going to stand any chance of saving the world, then they're going to have to learn to work together. And as us Australians will tell you, one of the best ways to do that is by playing team sports! In the world of Axon City, Mermaid Spikers is the most popular sport of them all. It's kind of like AFL or Rugby, except it takes place in a pool and every one of the players is a cute and sexy mermaid. 

It just so happens that the Axon City Regional Qualifiers are underway, and Lori has already signed the girls up as a team! She says it's for a bonding experience, but really she just wants to turn everyone into a mermaid. Who can blame her, mermaids are awesome.

Even Brie's pet monster axolotl Jay-Bubs helps out the team!

Mermaid Spikers is a stat driven sport, and you'll have to practice at the local pool or complete tasks around town to level up your stats. There'll be several different teams to compete against, such as Ryley and her team of Coffee Shrine Fox Maiden Mermaids, and Brie's arch nemeses at the Axon City Country Club. 

You'll have to plan your time efficiently if you want to dominate in the pool, and there'll be hell to pay if you don't win these qualifiers! Lori's already picked out a shelf to put her new trophy, she's not even considering the possibility of losing.

While we're still in the early stages of developing Mermaid Spikers, it's going to be an integral part of the game both story and gameplay wise. We're really excited to show off what we've got planned for this massive game mode, so stay tuned for updates in the next few months! And yes, every single party member gets a mermaid form.

  

Voice Acting 

Alluna, Brie, Lori and all playable party members will be fully voiced during Combat Scenes and Mermaid Spikers Duels. That's over 100 lines per character!

Brie - Voiced by Pippa Vos

Alluna - Voiced by Ingrid Elkner

We'll be posting more Voice Actress reveals as the campaign continues, so stay tuned!

Music

Alluna and Brie features a mix of original music produced by Tim Beek and awesome licensed music. There's even a few returning tracks from Max's Big Bust, you'll have a tonne of great music to listen to!

Max's Big Bust - A Captain Nekorai Tale

Alluna and Brie isn't our first game, and this isn't even our first time crowdfunding! Back in July of 2015 we successfully Kickstarted Max's Big Bust - A Captain Nekorai Tale, and since then we've released the game on Steam and The Humble Store. We've got a trailer you can check out below! 

All of our games share the same universe, and Alluna and Brie follows on directly on from the events of Max's Big Bust. If you want to grab Max for a discounted price, back us at the $50 tier and you'll get a Steam key for Max's Big Bust as soon as the Kickstarter finishes, as well as a digital art book and a key for Alluna and Brie when we release the first chapter! We've got more information on Max's Big Bust on our Steam page here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/416360

 

The Team   

 

Risks and challenges

This is our second Kickstarter and our second game, and we know that it takes a lot of hard work and dedication to release a quality game. We've been through this before though, and we're well prepared for the challenges of development.

We're extremely confident in our ability to finish Alluna and Brie, but there is a chance the game will be delayed from it's final release window depending on the number of stretch goals we hit. However, we will be releasing the game via Early Access, so backers will be able to play the game as it is developed. We'll also post regular updates detailing game development, so everyone will be kept in the loop on what's happening at Lached Up Games.
