About



I am an aspiring game designer trying to kickstart my career. Since I was young, I would put so much of my time into creating games. From games in my backyard to board games made with taped together paper and pieces from other games; it's always been a passion of mine to create something that gives people as much fun as I had making it. I have been working hard on combining what I've learned from college and my own experiences to create a game that I think is the perfect stepping stone into the game design field.

The  funds raised will be used for printing a set amount of copies and shipping them to a storage facility until (if I don't have one yet) a distributor is arranged or they sell online. I will also be buying a tablet so that my art will have better quality. I can't afford an artist but I also can't print the game with the current mouse-drawn quality it has. 

Though the art is still in progress, the game itself is complete. I've put many hours into tweaking the gameplay and doing my very best to balance it and I'm quite confident in how well it plays. As the art progresses, I look forward to sharing and working off your criticisms as we work together to make this project and my future a reality.

 The objective of the game is to gather 1000 star chunks and return to the start. Along the way, you'll be adorably slaying monsters, turning the tables with spells and events, and doing everything you can to become the next Starland Guardian! Collect weapons for extra damage but limited uses, gather spells for weaker but permanent attacks. and transformations for a star chunk bonus every turn and have a special ability!

Risks and challenges

As it stands, I am a one man team. If I receive enough funding, I'll be able to hire help with the project but as for now, the timeline has potential to be stretched as I intend to prioritize quality over deadlines, though a missed deadline is unlikely
