About this project

MEG: RVO is our first step towards building a video game universe in which Slate Kinetic, a sinister corporate entity, is training remote vehicle operators to explore alternate worlds.

MEG: RVO is a top-down, online multiplayer game that combines action and strategy for an intense and addictive gaming experience.

The initial version of MEG: RVO will be for iPad 3 (retina display) and up.

Your pledges will primarily go towards creating a new Challenge-Zone-Map. The map would be an additional/new map/zone. Basically a new "level" at a larger scale which we don't currently have budget for allowing to start expanding the game's universe. 

Your pledges will also go towards increasing our marketing efforts and brand exposure. These marketing plans include attendance at PAX (Seattle) and PAX East (Boston) which will give us the opportunity to present the current version of MEG: RVO to industry peers and fellow gamers.

Risks and challenges

The current iteration of MEG: RVO will be submitted to Apple in Fall 2013. With funding in place from Canada Media Fund, IRAP, the founders and private investors, we are currently working on the next iterations toward a final release.

The two biggest challenges we face are marketing, and player adoption. To mitigate these challenges, we are seeking a dedicated core of beta testers to help with the ongoing development of MEG: RVO. Given our established financial backing, it is very likely that Skunkwerks Kinetic will complete the final project.
