About

Eradication: The Game is an open world first person shooter where you play as a series of condemned prisoners forced to face and attempt to kill a massive monster rampaging through a city by night, while its legion of minions scavenge for food during the daylight hours... and food includes... well... YOU.  This game is designed to be difficult, and challenging, during the day you must hide from the pack minded minions, while you resupply and prepare to fight for your life against the Apokolosaurus (a genetically modified nuclear alternative monster designed to be air dropped and wreak havoc on entire nations) when night falls and it emerges from its lair.  Luckily you have an advanced exo-suit that allows you to run at incredible speeds and leap massive heights while blasting your enemies with an array of weapons.

With that said, Eradication is very close to completion on the programming & gameplay side of things, but we need Kickstarters help to get over the final crunch and hopefully achieve some of our further goals and aspirations for our game.

In game shot showing the city we are making in an early state.


The first and foremost goal is to develop more animations for the monsters, currently they have a limited range of motions, and for the emmersive, terrifying atmosphere we are trying to create, we simply need more.  Along with that we would like to add some more detail to the world itself, we are currently finishing texturing what we have, but we want to add some building interiors, and more decor to create the proper feel.  Finally, we want to have truly amazing sound design, and make the guns and monsters sound as great as they truly can and should, in order to do this we need to access some paid assets, as well as have a chance to record some of our own to make sure they fit with the world we have created.

The budgeted distribution of funds is as follows:

In this chart, development and software will cover the software purchases, and any fees we run into with distribution.  Sound design will be for acquiring sound assets of course.  Website is so that no matter what, we can still distribute and launch the game.  The fees is to account for any bank charges and Kickstarter fees would be taken out of the funds once the goal is reached. 

We also have many stretch goals in mind for the game, the order we tackle them in may change depending on your feedback, as each one should be reachable with the same amount of additional support!  These stretch goal will be delivered after the release and delivery of the original game.

$25,000: Select Terrain destruction, collapse some buildings and some smaller objects such as water towers and antennas to have them fall on the hoards of monsters, or lead the Apokolosaurus into a devious trap!

$40,000: Add online co-op multiplayer, team up with a group of friends to face this colossal challenge!

$55,000: Another set of monsters and another map!  Why settle for one epic challenge when you can have more! and for each additional $15,000 over this goal, another map and set of monsters will be added to the game, and released as free content for everyone to enjoy.

We would also like to add character customization at some point, but due to the fact adding additional monsters adds more gameplay potential, we will focus on them first.

Risks and challenges

We are currently in a very late state of development so most of our primary challenges are luckily behind us, and due to the fact we are developing Eradication completely within our own team, these risks can be minimized to a degree, but as always, some will be ever present.

The biggest threat is of course data loss, but we take precaution against this with two main methods, first being all of our computers have battery backup in the event of power failure, nothing can be corrupted or lost. The second method is we do weekly backups to 2 external hard drives that are kept safe at all times, and taken to a secure location to prevent data loss in the event of a computer breaking or a fire at our office location destroying the computers.

The next threat is of course that one our team members will not be able to finish the project, this threat is taken seriously, but all team members agreed going in that we are in this for the long haul.

The final threat is of course delays, which is why we have worked in some extra time to our development schedule incase we run into a problem, also all team members are fully committed to this project, and will do what it takes to get it done.
