About this project

Risks and challenges

Our team is highly motivated and we have the skills to take Sol Avenger to the next level. We have made the game a reality without any significant financial investment by working hard every day. For over a year, we’ve developed the gameplay programmatically and artistically to create this experience for you. The game, after thousands of iterations, runs smoothly on a powerful computer right down to a mobile device and it’s ready for expansion! We realize that our biggest risk is that the game could take longer to complete than we project. Sol Avenger is so far along in development that this is no longer a “concept” for a game. Sol Avenger will be released for you to play. In the event that the game takes longer to complete than anticipated, our team will continue to work to achieve the stretch goals. We will continue to keep you updated weekly just as we have in the past. We truly believe that we’ve come this far without any funding and it would only take a small push to lift us over the precipice of this great mountain we’ve scaled thus far. Our team is strong. With the right tooling we will realize our grand vision for this experience much more quickly. Now, we only need support from our peers in the gaming community.
