About

When I was a kid, I used to go to this game arcades in my neighborhood with my friends. Still, I cannot forget the exhilaration we felt when we defeated the enemies together in Final Fight, and countless belt scroll action games by Capcom. Although games back then seemed simple, there were plentiful details of gamibility within that simplicity. The entertaining value of the game maximized when you understood those hidden rules and utilized them. Back then, everyone had good time playing those games, regardless how good your skills were. We missed those games.

 That motivated us to bring those pure enjoyment from then to now, instead of pursuing the trend of ‘the grandeur, the better’.

One of the most distinctive aspects of our game is that we tried not only to inherit game feel of previous games but also infused realistic impact into the fight actions.   

This game is the result of our endeavor on in-depth research and analysis on the previous games and action movies.  

As our development continues, we will enrich and solidify details to enhance the game juice as well as the quality of visual design.  

The completed game will bring you joyful experience even for just moving the characters around.

 Brian

He has completed numerous missions under the name of justice in special forces. He earned the honor, but gradually collapsed inside. He couldn't accept himself covered in blood, and retired after suffering PSTD.

He was recovering slowly with his family which was the only comfort for him. Then the tragedy hit - the family was murdered by someone.

It was a severe retaliation taken by an organized gang that was involved in the task performed by his former unit. In the emptiness and the chaos with his loss, the " violence " he was used to has come to life again. Somehow he became incredibly calm, and there was only one thing left in his life.

 Amy

When she was young, she saw a burglar murdering a clerk in a local grocery store. With that incident, she realized the importance of power to protect herself. Later, she became an homicide detective after graduating police academy with summa cum laude.  

While solving the city's violent crimes, she found that all crimes were related to a single organization. The whole city was being moved by that organization, and the police officers were all connected to it.  

She couldn't do anything at her position. The best she could do was becoming a vigilante, wear a hat and go out on the streets at night, punishing the gang - one by one.

 Grek

Grek's mother died while giving birth to him so he was raised by his father, a poor farmer. The father resented and hated his young son, who had killed his wife, and abused him in the name of discipline.  

Grek wanted to correct his twisted world. He joined the army and trained himself physically and mentally.  

At the prime of his life, he found love. Soon he had a daughter, and his life started changing little by little. Then one day, her daughter was kidnapped by a group called " Nomenklatura" which was infamous for human trafficking. He left the army and went to great lengths to get his daughter back.

One day, some of my college friends asked me to cast a friend in the game as one of the characters. It started lightly but soon it became super fun! Now here, we would like to offer you a chance to become one of the game characters you wish.  

Just email the pictures of your closed-up face, entire body, along with your height and age. If you win the draw, we will include you as a character in the game.  

The pictures need to be high-res, taken from front, 45 degree, and the side. Shots from more angles would help creating your twins in the game!




We, two of us, developed this game. We met each other about 5 years ago while studying character design.  

We shared experience on games, animations, and movies with a similar point of view so we planned to make a game together sometime later.

After working at a company for another 2 to 3 years, we decided to wrap things up and put everything into this project.

To launch and bring this game to perfection, We need more people and a better environment.

We've been putting great effort to develop the game in best quality within minimum budget. We have completed about half of the game resources such as characters and environmental setting. At this point, we need more developers to complete the game. Our estimated budget for the completion of the game is about $500,000. 

We've used more than $100,000 out of our own pocket to bring the idea to this stage. With the Kickstarter campaign, we're hoping to find funding partners who will help to launch the game or, ideally, to successfully crowdsource the entire project. 

We have worked for large game companies in Korea. As far as game development goes, we're professional and confident in what we do.

Risks and challenges

We have been funding the project out of our own pockets but at this point, we financially hit the wall.

We need your help to continue building this project.

Fundraising is to support outsourcing process, and not to starve ourselves (!) during this journey.

We have completed the preproduction and fully ready to dive into the full development cycle.

With the successful campaign, we’re aiming to release early access version within a year.

Failure is not an option. Your support will be critical for us to gather our forces to push through this game to life.
