About

(Demo Version: https://www.dropbox.com/s/8m7hkeu9lnzq3u6/141023_SpiritSweeper_Demo.apk?dl=0)


Spirit Sweeper is a fresh take on classic Minesweeper game play. Currently being developed by a Korean indie studio of just three passionate gamers, Spirit Sweeper is a fast paced, player vs. player, mobile update on the traditional sweeper mechanics.

Taking place in a fantasy world of Golems, Witches and Knights, players can unlock and choose from 8 different characters to conquer their friends and battle internet strangers for sweeper supremacy. 

 70% of the way to a bigger, better game

Spirit Sweeper is currently being developed as a mobile title for Android and iOS. As of now, we have a working model of the PvP game mode. We intend to further development and refine the game through the following:

  • Finish development of the PvP mode and refine the game.
  • Add an "expert" mode that includes features to please hardcore minesweeper aficionados.
  • Add a single player story mode.
  • Localize the game for the international audience. 

We've come a long way just with our own blood, sweat and tears. Unfortunately, it's not easy being an indie developer in Korea, and we're turning to Kickstarter for help in our final stages of development!

Stretch Goals

$5,000- Finish the development of current Android and iOS builds along with full English localization. 

$10,000- Add a quest campaign for solo play.

Once we reach these goals we will add more stretch goals with even better rewards!

How to Play

After selecting a character, players are matched to opponents in a PVP arena. Each player takes a turn trying to uncover spirit stones on the board using the number clues. The first player to collect 10 spirit stones wins!

Risks and challenges

A lot of time, effort and love has been poured into this project to bring a game that we're passionate about to new users and minesweeper enthusiasts around the world.

Though the core of the game is almost 80% complete, there are still some challenges that remain. Global server costs and localization are among the issues. Marketing is also a big issue, as we aim to publish the game independently.

The game currently has two main play modes -- a PvP component where you play in real time against other players, and a single player version where you play against a bot. However, we want to add two more modes to really create a full-fleshed experience: 1.) a single player Story mode and 2.) a Hardcore mode, similar to the "Expert" mode you'll see in regular Minesweeper. Whereas the Story mode will merely take more development time and creative energy, the hardcore mode will have a lot of technical UI/UX challenges, as it will be very difficult to contain all the squares onto a mobile screen.

While we know the game we want to make, we are still moving forward with funding, development and design to make this the best game possible. The passion to deliver the best experience possible has been our driving force to deliver a great game well aware of the risks of making a game based on a small, but hardcore and passionate community.
