The story is a direct follow up to the first Flying Hamster (2010).
After deafeating the Nerdy Alien Boss, Newton finally got back his tasty GOLDEN SEED and ate it at once. But as it turns out this was not a great idea: as soon as he finishes his delicious seed our fearless hamster feels sick and quickly transforms into a PIG, thus removing the capacity to wear any clothes and, even worse, losing his flying ability.
Newton has no other choice but to find a way to CURE HIMSELF. Fortunately he’ll quickly discover that other very RARE LEGENDARY SEEDS exist in the World and eating one of them may turn him back to a Hamster. But finding them won’t be so easy as plenty of monsters and other evil creatures will try to stop him.
During his quest Newton will eventually stumble upon a VERY STRANGE TOWN full of weird unknown beings but hiding a great unexpected SECRET.
Here starts Newton’s journey to recover his original form as the one and only FLYING HAMSTER.
Note: If you pledge for an “Insider Hamster” reward-tier or higher, we’ll ask you to VOTE for some key points on the game’s story.
Here’s an overview of our core team. Please take a look at our avatars, they are close to what your in-game character might look like if you pledge for “Your Hamster Face” reward-tier.
Stretch Goals are important since the game’s CONTENT and FEATURES can be IMPROVED in a big way. Extra Worlds, extra equipement, extra quests can add depth to the adventure and unforgettable additional HOURS OF GAMEPLAY. Furthermore there are so many other exciting PLATFORMS we’d love to release Flying Hamster II on but we can’t do it without YOUR HELP.

ONLY YOU have the power to help us make Flying Hamster II the best game of all time, and here’s how you can simply do that:
Game Atelier is an independent studio located in Paris, France. Since 2010 we have developed HIGH QUALITY TITLES like Flying Hamster, SunFlowers and Crazy Market and published some critically acclaimed games like Gauge and Zorbie.
We are authorized developers with SONY and registered to the MICROSOFT ID@Xbox program.
And last but not least, we don’t rely on any game creator engine but we use our own multi-platform FRAMEWORK and home-made TOOLS for our productions.
We simply need your help to fund the development of Flying Hamster II.
With the initial funding goal of $150k we can make a great game with our small core team and cover the production costs of every reward you can order with your pledge. From our past experience we know exactly the cost of making a game, which requires funding and time investment. The more funds we collect, the more people we can hire to work on code, levels, music, equipment, enemies and bosses we can put in Flying Hamster II. So the overall QUALITY and CONTENT of the final game relies entirely on you. Only YOU have the super power to push it from a good game to an incredible game.
Flying Hamster II is by far the most ambitious project we’ve ever planned. Before launching this campaign we worked for months on writing, drawing and coding so we can answer any question regarding all aspects of the game. Pushing our research this far was mandatory to make something that would be really exciting and surprising but that was just the beginning of our journey.
Now we’re here with this campaign, more determined than ever to give you the BEST of what we do and preparing ourselves for this production: our proprietary framework and tools are being updated while we build the community around Flying Hamster II.
Making YOU a part of the adventure via Kickstarter is something we never did before: it is as exciting as it is challenging. Our primary mission now is simply not to disappoint during and after this campaign, but most importantly when you’ll play the final version of Flying Hamster II.
With your help, we’re ready to fully use our experience, share our knowledge and surpass ourselves in delivering the best gaming experience ever. BE A PART OF IT and let’s shoot for the stars together.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
