About

Port Terror - The Premier Mobile Video Game by Underground Media

Hello Gamers,

It is my pleasure to introduce "Port Terror" to you in raw form. Port Terror will amaze you with the storytelling, graphics, and weapons the player will use to secure the Port. Also, did I mention the experimental weapons like ME211 Rail Shotgun, Protective Armor, or the Grenade Blaster....wait for it...it has a 5 second delay. The weapons are mind blowing. This mission will not be easy. It has been determined your team will insert into the port area at night. As, Colonel James you will lead a five member team.

Your mission is to secure sections of the port. If you, do not secure your sections of the port in time. You risk allowing the Scientist and his mercenary team to infect the populace with the chemical compound 71425. Colonel, compound 71425 is a chemical mixture to drive individuals mad. If, this happens your team will have to deal with the populous as well.

This fight will be at night so bring your night vision goggles. We are introducing special equipment for your team. Do not worry Colonel, thanks to our special backers, capturing the port in your special exoskeletons suite or using the "share" option will make things easier. We have a lot of surprises in store for you.

Port Terror in action!

Estimated Completion Date: March 2016 - Only 6 months from end of the campaign!

Why Kickstarter?

There are hundreds and thousands of video games today, so why is Underground Media choosing to begin with mobile video games and utilizing Kickstarter? Founder James bell has been working tirelessly for 5 years on developing the storylines and concepts for these original games. He has also been playing games on various platforms for years and his passion remains unwavered. And, he believes the adventure genre can always use more original games.

James and the Underground Media team wish to take a new perspective by presenting mobile video games that are of high quality, unique content, and to give backers and users the opportunity to provide feedback and submit suggestions for the ultimate mobile video game experience.

Underground Media & The Team

Mission: To create the ultimate digital entertainment experiences across all platforms and to quickly adapt to customer preferences and new technologies.

Vision: To ensure longevity in digital entertainment through original ideas and innovative technology.

The team is an essential part of the success of Underground Media. Founder James Bell has surrounded himself with individuals who are equally as passionate about improving digital entertainment as they are talented in their respective areas of expertise.

James Bell - Founder

James has been working with mobile games in a direct and an indirect capacity for years in his free time when he is not spending time with his daughters and wife. His past work experiences and leadership skills have prepared him for guiding his startup, Underground Media, into the future of digital entertainment.

To create the initial video game and those yet to come, James is using his personal and professional experiences. James is a Marine and has spent several years working at the Port of Corpus Christi, has has years of working in emergency situations as being a firefighter and during his days working at correctional and mental health facilities. He has been in several life-threatening situations in a number of circumstances such as in military action, maritime security threats, mental breakdowns of patients, and explosive fires. It is these experiences that have inspired James to create a number of original video games to be presented in a manner not yet seen in the gaming world.

As James has spent countless hours in a port during the night and in emergency situations in a number of dangerous environments, you can expect these games to be wildly realistic with a fresh perspective to the gaming environment and that these games will be equally as exciting and raw as they are authentic to real life dangers given the potential risks James has faced every day in his professional careers in addition to his vivid imagination and he cannot wait to bring his reality to your mobile video game adventures.

The additional individuals who comprise the remaining members of the team are either founding members or freelancers and consultants at this time. Each person presents an equal role of importance from business development to graphic design. Without these individuals, and your help, these video games would never become a reality.

Spencer Johnson - Business Development (5 years experience) Randy McCullough - Technology Consultant (20 years experience) Juan Reyna - Creative Director (5 years experience) Jayant Simeon - Digital Artist (10 years experience) Jas Tarwal - Game Developers (10 years experience) You - Dream Maker (A lifetime of invaluable experience and insights)

The Funds - $70K

The bulk of the funds will go directly into the development of the games. This figure has been reached based on estimates provided by those individuals developing the games on behalf of Underground Media. The remainder of the funds will be used for marketing in a variety of ways such as YouTube Channel expenses and additional promotions. And, of course, to cover Kickstarter fees and taxes and a small portion is dedicated to unexpected expenses. All funds will be 100% distributed to successfully launch the game.

The Future

Blood Lust - the second game ready for development with enough funds!
Blood Lust - the second game ready for development with enough funds!

Port Terror is only the first mobile video game planned for development. Once funding is raised for this initial game, James and the team will continue to seek additional funding to begin development on a second original game that is also ready for development. After these two are released, Underground Media will continue to develop additional video games as well as original animated series, digital graphic novels, and digital media technologies. As long as you want it, Underground Media will work to provide it whilst staying true to the core philosophy of the company in originality and quality.

Original and premiere graphic novel also in the works!

Risks and challenges

Because Port Terror is the first of many anticipated mobile video game releases from Underground Media, a significant challenge exists in that we will encounter a number of unforeseen obstacles and costs we simply cannot anticipate without prior experience. With that being said, our game developers do have a significant amount of experience and we have spoken with and followed a number of other indie game developers to reduce these obstacles as much as possible.

We also understand that the mobile video game industry is becoming increasingly competitive on a daily basis, however we believe that all of our games, such as Port Terror, will stand out from the rest due to the quality of the graphics, the unique features, and the original storylines. The team at Underground Media will work tirelessly to bring you Port Terror in a timely fashion with AAA-quality from start to finish.
