This project is an Independant Video game. It is a Fun and exciting side scrolling shooter. It needs more Great Music, Artwork and Programming

Who Am I?
SorceryGames was created to allow me to make playable games, games that people could also enjoy playing with family members or friends. Some of my game designs in the past have garnered very high scores for the way they played. This will be my 4th title for the Xbox, so you can have confidence that I can finish what I start. This latest game is my best so far.

What Is this Game?
This is a game for the Xbox Live Indie Games available to all Xbox 360 owners (about 35 million atm). Once it is published there I hope to push it to a PC portal such as Steam (20 million members). After I hit Steam, I am hopeful it will have enough momentum for me to take the game further to other consoles and possibly phones.

The game is a classic side scrolling shooter. Often called 'shmups' and this one is being created in the style of the famous arcade game creators Capcom. I am very proud of the way the game is coming along. The main gameplay is there already and is being very well received (check out some of the links to gameplay footage on youtube). It is partly this confidence in the feel and the gameplay of the game that wants me to push more and make the game all that it can be.

The game is not yet complete, but with these pledges I will push what is a good and solid side-scrolling shooter game, to new heights. By making the overall quality of the game experience so much better. Such as making the music and graphics live up to the quality of the gameplay experience. Other details are below.

What will I spend the money on?
• Obtain some great music, at least 8 individual tracks. The more appropriate the music the better the audio connection to the game.
• Add more professional SFX and fixup a lot of the ones I already have in the game. Generic sound effects are ok, but do not help a game stand out.
• Finance a specific SorceryGames themed music track to be used in all future endeavors and videos as well as adding character to this one.
• Pay a level design expert to add more polish and finish to the levels in my game and test it all properly.
• Pay a programmer to put in (also fix) some specific Xbox features that will make the game more appealing to Xbox owners. Xbox has some neat features this game could take advantage of, like presence and friend message sending.
• Buy more art from my artist. Like 13 different end of level bosses (currently I have 1 definition for them all). This can make the experience seem a little samey, but in fact all 13 bosses are different to each other.
• Create a Demo Station. This is a monitor on a stand with an Xbox at its heart. I intend to stand outside or inside local Gamestop (game shops franchise) with my stand and get people interested in my product. I have talked to a few of the Shop managers and they love this idea. While I am demoing my game I will be acquiring email addresses of interested parties while they can play my game before it is released.

What if I get Extra Money?
I will be entering A Shooter into some competitions. One called Pax10 started on June 15th for example. Entering competitions can get me a lot of notoriety, especially if I win. However these shows can be quite expensive to go to. I would need a booth and they are not cheap. They also tend to be spread around the country, like PAX is in Seattle. I will run more competitions for people to win my promotional items to help get the games name out there. Yes, I know this may be dreaming, but isn’t that what creativity is about. The booth I was told would cost $2000 alone (ouch!). So I am hopeful that pledgers would see just how valuable this would be and keep on pledging.
