Some famous quotes ;)

During the life of this Kickstarter campaign, the first half of the first game, Kaptain Brawe: A Brawe New World (Episode 1) will be free to EVERYBODY! All of our backers from the 3$ tier and up will also receive the second half of the game (Episode 2) as a reward should the Kickstarter campaign prove successful, delivered as soon as it is complete.

 

Kaptain Brawe 2: A Space Travesty will be available in English with full English voiceovers, along with subtitles in German, Italian, Spanish and French with the possibility of additional languages to come!

Kaptain Brawe 2: A Space Travesty is a sequel to the acclaimed, traditional humorous point and click adventure from 2010, Kaptain Brawe: A Brawe New World. The game and its whimsical characters, as well as its colourful and detailed hand-drawn visual style, were inspired by legendary LucasArts and Sierra adventure games of old, such as Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle and Space Quest!

The visual style of the new game, as with the original Kaptain Brawe title, is heavily inspired by classic LucasArts adventure games

Cateia Games, the veteran indie development studio behind first Kaptain Brawe game, also well known for its roster of a dozen other excellent adventures, is teaming up with legendary writer and game designer, Steve Ince (of Broken Sword and So Blonde fame) to bring this project to life!  This match made in heaven becomes even more appealing when the highly talented art production team from Frontmen Studio is added to the mix.  They will be responsible for the beautiful hand-drawn scenery and characters that will add a special touch to the unique visual style of the game.

Here are just some of the reasons why all of you adventure game and Steve Ince fans will love the new Kaptain Brawe:

  • Beautiful and detailed 2D hand painted scenes
  • Unique and brilliant story by Steve Ince
  • Traditional adventure point and click gameplay
  • Big cast of wacky characters
  • Wonderful and unique "Brawe" humor and puzzles
  • Fully voiced characters
  • Around 10 hours worth of gameplay
  • Inspired by Lucas Arts and Sierra classics

If you haven't played A Brawe New World, the original Kaptain Brawe adventure, and are wondering who this intriguing hero actually is.  While it would take a modest lifetime to properly describe all the subtle nuances of his delicate personality, for purpose of this Kickstarter campaign we’ll simply say he’s a space police captain with a serious attitude.  And special talent for doing things exactly the wrong way!  We say “talent” because, in his previous adventure, he became caught up in an unlikely series of events that revealed the greatest space conspiracy ever.

In the original game, Kaptain Brawe intercepted a distress signal from a crashed ship and travelled to planet Jama Spacea to investigate.  It quickly became apparent the crashed ship belonged to the bad guys.  Chasing each other around the galaxy, our hero teams up with unlikely allies to infiltrate a pirate organization and stop the conspiracy

Ursula Unsula, the queen of Zennity Sping, the tiniest planet in the known universe, has grand plans and plans to put those plans into action as soon as she’s planned her breakfast of Krypto-Koffee and Kaffles. What grand plans you ask? Why, she only wants to take over Folderakkiakkiu, the second tiniest planet. If she succeeds in doing that, who knows where it will end? Megalomaniacs, eh?

Big cast of unique and wacky characters written by Steve Ince will give the game a special flavour

Meanwhile, the only man who has the remotest chance of stopping her is dead, so it falls to Kaptain Brawe to save the day, may the mighty Shelzar have mercy on us all. Unfortunately, Brawe currently finds himself stranded on a remote ice planet with little hope of rescue. It wouldn’t be so bad if he hadn’t just burnt the last flammable part of his damaged ship in an effort to keep warm.

Can he, against all odds, find his way off this butt-freezing lump of rock and ice and re-save the universe? Presuming, of course, he even has a clue that it actually needs saving.

And who, or what, in the name of the galactic core is an Ittle?

Stay tuned! All this and much more in the next thrilling instalment of Kaptain Brawe.

(Kaptain Brawe is sponsored by Krypto-Koffee in association with Kickstarter backers.)

No, no, no!” screamed Steve as he underwent torture at the hands of Cateia Games, the crazy creatives behind the first Kaptain Brawe game. The team wanted to make a sequel and were under the misguided impression that it would be a good idea to involve Steve Ince, a guy who likes to make up crazy stories, even about himself. “No,” he continued. “I won’t rob a bank to fund the game; you’ll have to run a Kickstarter campaign.

The man sitting behind the desk-light turned down the corner of another page in Steve’s favourite book – boy these guys really knew how to do the worst torture. Between that and making him drink tea without any sugar, Steve was unable to resist any longer. “Look, I’ll even help you with the campaign, okay?”

The team grinned and a shiver went down Steve’s back. Just what had he let himself in for?

Even if he never wants to admit it, Steve is one of the adventure genre legends of old that we all admire and love so much!  He’s best known for his work on classic adventure games at Revolution Software, including the Broken Sword series and Beneath a Steel Sky, along with titles like So Blonde and Captain Morgane.  Even though we may feel we already know him, we’ll let Steve talk about the project in his own words.

This game is going to be the first outright wacky comedy game I’ve worked on for some time and I’m really looking forward to getting my fingers stuck into the keyboard. Well, not literally, of course. When I was approached by the team at Cateia Games to get involved with the sequel to the first Kaptain Brawe game, I pondered long and hard on what I should do.

Two minutes later, my head already bursting with ideas, I replied to their enquiring e-mail with a measured response. I say measured because I took out my old Mary Poppins Tape Measure™ and found that it read exactly “excitedly enthusiastic”; not a millimetre more or a quarter-ounce less. 

We are staying true to the core while keeping that feeling of traditional point&click adventures and combining it with intuitive interaface and puzzles

But a little more seriously, Kaptain Brawe 2 will be a perfect fit for my humorous sensibilities.  I enjoy working on all the projects I undertake and with the clients behind them, but every so often there comes a project where I know that if I don’t work on it, the potential ideas that would have been generated will haunt my dreams for years to come.

So, to be a little self-indulgent – please consider backing this project and help all those potential ideas become a reality. I promise that Kaptain Brawe – A Space Travesty will be far more fun than visiting a zero-G massage parlour.

As my old boss, Charles Cecil, once said to me, “Do you want a coffee?”

If we manage to gather a much higher level of support for Kaptain Brawe 2: A Space Travesty during this Kickstarter campaign, we already have some exciting ideas that will help Steve and Cateia Games turn the game from great to wonderful!

If with your support we somehow manage to reach the some of the highest announced stretch goals we will have more amazing things to announce!

Cateia Games

Cateia Games is a veteran indie game development studio from Croatia.  Creators of the original award winning Kaptain Brawe: A Brawe New World with more than 10 years of experience and over a dozen projects shipped.  The studio comprises more than a dozen developers with a combined games industry experience in excess of 100 years. We are very passionate about the adventure game genre and most of our games have fallen under this label so far! It’s always been our dream to develop and release a proper sequel to our love-child, Kaptain Brawe, and to develop it to the highest production standards and in cooperation with one of the genre’s biggest living game designer legends!

Frontmen Studio

Frontmen Studio from Belgrade has been the independent visual design studio of choice for the best of breed in the gaming industry. Key personnel at Frontmen Studio have a variety of backgrounds and over 15 years experience in illustration, modelling, animation and visual design for gaming. The partnership with Cateia Games developed rapidly, as both teams share the same love and enthusiasm for high quality adventure games. This project will be the cherry on the icing, as the Frontmen people have a passion for creating gorgeous worlds and characters that stand out strongly from the crowd.


You already know the story!  Getting the necessary funds to develop a high profile, traditional point and click adventure game these days, at the same time as keeping ownership of an IP we love so much, is next to impossible.  Which is where you come in! Because we have an excellent development team at our disposal and great internal development tools, we can finish the development of Kaptain Brawe 2: A Space Travesty for a fraction of the cost that other, well-known studios have asked for similar projects, while at the same time delivering top notch production values, a wonderful set of wacky characters and a great story by Steve Ince!

Digital Rewards

Most of digital rewards including the digital version of the game (Steam key and DRM free version will be provided) will be delivered by June 2015 at latest.

Some digital rewards like digital wallpaper set, digital comic that bridges the story between original Kaptain Brawe and the sequel and backer forum access will be provided much earlier while Kaptain Brawe: A Brawe New World Episode 2 will be delivered to backers as soon as Kickstarter campaing ends.

Physical rewards

And here is the choice of special fine made physical rewards that each Brawe fan should have in his collection.

Risks and challenges

As with any project, even those that get funded through other traditional means, there are obvious risks involved. Our big advantage in avoiding any production challenges is a veteran team of developers and proven set of excellent internally developed software tools that we have been using daily for development of numerous both traditional core and casual adventure game titles

Those two things and sufficient funds that we are asking through our Kickstarter campaign can vouch on our side that Kaptain Brawe 2: A Space Travesty will be developed at both the highest production standards and delivered on time!

If some of the higher stretch goals are met we might opt for slightly longer development cycle to accommodate a lot more content being added while at the same time retaining our high level production standards that we are so proud of.
