The vision

Enemies speed toward you, missiles and lasers fly past from every angle. Your reflexes are key - your maneuvers must be quick, tight, precise. You are vastly outnumbered, with only your skills and your white-knuckled piloting keeping you alive. This is bullet hell.

We at Stuffed Rock Studio believe there aren't nearly enough good bullet hell games for the PC on the market, so we set out to change that. No hand holding, no patronizing - you've played video games before, you don't need it. Just an exciting game where the odds are very much stacked against you, but you have all the tools you need to survive.

We also sought to bring you something different from the average video game. Instead of treading down the beaten path of cinematics, we're telling this game's story with a comic book by Taiwanese artist Louis (aka WonderHell666). And with a relentless enemy that doesn't see reason the same way we do, it's a story you're going to want to follow.

The story so far

You start as Maxwell Brown, a retired war veteran who now works a token security job getting bounced between various space stations that really don't need the protection. When an unexpected attack hits, you're cut off from communication with Earth, leaving you to fend for yourself against the wave of attackers. But when you do restore communication, you face a horrifying truth - you're one of the lucky ones.

Meet Phoenix Squad, a group of Earth's most talented dog fighters. Every single one of them has amazing talent for piloting, and hair trigger reflexes, but it all means nothing as long as the orbital blockade is in place. Ships can barely take off without being vaporized - everyone on earth is trapped on the ground. If you can create an opening for them, if they can lead a small squadron out of the blockade, then maybe there's a chance to fight back.

Rewards

Reward details

  • Copy of the game - What it says on the tin. You'll receive a copy of the game on Steam when it's released.
  • Early access - Start playing the game before anyone else!
  • Forum title and badge - Be forever immortalized on the Stuffed Rock official forums with a special title and badge marking you as a donor.
  • Key chain - Back a project from Stuffed Rock Studio, get a stuffed rock. This is a foam "rock" that you can hang from your key chain, your phone, or your bag. It's all the rage in Asia. Trust us on that. Please don't look it up.
  • T-shirt - Get an exclusive Click Boom Win t-shirt made specifically for this kickstarter campaign!
  • Art book - The art book includes design sketches, concept art, and the comic used in the game.
  • Poster - An A2 poster featuring the iconic phoenix ship in flight.
  • Necklace - The phoenix, captured in a glass pendant on a simple cord.
  • Design a game element - Got ideas? Want to make your mark? We're offering you the opportunity to create something in game. Bring us your idea, as complete or incomplete as it may be, and we'll create a game element from it.
  • Executive Co-Producer credit - Your name, in the credits. And you get to have the word "executive" in your title. Is there anything else that cool that makes you look so official? Funny you should ask...
  • Personalized briefcase/purse - Your choice of leather briefcase or purse, emblazoned with your initials and the outline of the phoenix, all in gold leaf. You'll have to start wearing suits just to have an excuse to be so classy.
  • Ten years of Stuffed Rock games - What's cooler than a copy of Click Boom Win? A copy of every game we release for the next ten years.

Stretch goals

  • Additional ships - At $15000, two more ships added to the lineup. We've got pure awesomeness in mind with this goal. We're keeping one under wraps, but we can tell you about the other. It's a flying shark. That shoots lasers. In space. If that doesn't appeal to you, I don't think we can be friends.
  • Weapon customization - When has it ever been enough to stomp evil for fun and profit? You need to look good doing it, and we want to make that happen. At $20000, we will implement a full cosmetic customization interface in the shop for your various weapons.
  • Additional platforms - Want to see the game on Xbox Live? Of course you do! Help us get it there and we'll gladly oblige. Non-lazy Xbox port will go into development at $25000.

What we're doing with the money

Pie chart, do your thing!

Risks and challenges

The first and most obvious challenge is getting voted into Steam via the Greenlight program, but we believe that this isn't as daunting as a lot of people think it is. If you back us, you have a pretty good incentive to vote for us, so even in the very unlikely event that no one else does, there should still be enough votes to get us in. On that note, we personally vote in Greenlight all the time, even for games we've never heard of.

One problem that actually has substance is the fact that we're on opposite ends of the world. The programmer is in Taiwan, and the artist is in Canada. You'd pretty much have to leave the planet to get any further away than that. But we've been dealing with the timezones and the distance for a while now - a bit longer won't kill us.

On that note, shipping out some rewards from Taiwan and some rewards from Canada is certainly going to cause some confusion, but the enthralling, captivating art of understandable and transparent book keeping should deal with that.
