What is this project about?

Puma Punku Totems is a wonderous and magical world consisting of games, trading cards and animation.This KickStarter campaign will focus on our first springboard game where we will be creating a tile matching fighting game for mobile apps with feature film quality animations.This game will be the central focus of the entire Universe of Puma Punku Totems. By winning totems and using their totem spirit, you can create a powerful Shaman. That Shaman can be used for other games. The future is vast and there are many possibilities for the Shamans and their totem powers. Examples would be RPGs, MMOs and platform games. But we need to start somewhere first. We consider this premiere game a social game created by social people. You have the power to be part of a universe from the very beginning! This is a great opportunity for our Backers to be really creative with a game company that really wants to hear your thought and ideas. So don't be shy.

Do you love animation as much as we do?

Animation is the heart and soul of our company especially 2D animation. This isn't your run of the mill Flash animated game. We wanted to share some of our favorite frame-by-frame animated sequences from our game. These Shaman are very detailed and its great to really see them in action in a still frame image. A great reward to have.

Concept work and Design!

Pencil test and rough drawings are always great inspiration for ones own work. We wanted to share the creative director's sketchbook with everyone. These are in a way useful for anyone who loves animation for timing and design.

The Shamans: Awareness of All Animal Totem Spirits

The Magical world of Puma Punku Totems has an awareness of the environment and all living things. Keeping in mind certain animals are endangered, like the Great Panda, and animals that are extinct, like the Javan Tiger. Trading cards will be created that will show where in the world a totem animal lives/lived and a fact about them. As well as, what their totem spirit power possess.

Collect them all!!

Over 100 totems have been created for the first game. Over a thousand more can be created with your support. We decided not to name any of these totems because we wanted to hear from our Backers. Be as creative as possible .

Why Kickstarter?

To get this great game finished, we need your support. We are devoting our full-time to this project. We need more music, more animation, programming, more gameplay, a super engine and to get this game to you! We plan on creating more games based on Puma Punku Totems - this is just the launching pad for a new world. We want you to be a part of it.
