About this project
Implosion – Never Lose Hope "2015 iOS Game of the Year", was released in April 2015, and embodied a sci-fi based hack & slash game for the mobile platform. Set on bringing the AAA console gaming experience to mobile, Implosion received a Metacritic score of 93/100 as well as the coveted "editor's choice" on both AppStore and Google Play store. The characters were voiced by lead actors from the Resident Evil, Tekken, and Transformers franchises.
Implosion: ZERO_DAY, is a full-length feature animation, set twenty years before the events of the mobile game. By combining techniques from East and West, and sub-genres like High-Fantasy, Cyberpunk and Space Opera, this anime is sure to captivate audiences. From seasoned anime veterans to animation newcomers, ZERO_DAY has something to offer everyone. "A digital odyssey that urges the viewer to reconsider the way we interact as a species, and how we think about our place in the universe."
All regular matter, the entire Earth, and everything ever observed by humans, adds up to less than 5% of the “known” universe. Dark matter harbors the face of reality that is invisible to us; but what if the dark universe came out of hiding? In an age when our planet has been pushed beyond the limit of population control, the only viable alternative is to search for a new home. The technology that promised to take us to new stars has brought with it far more than we’ve bargained for. In the year 2179, Earth makes first contact with extra-terrestrial life, as a result of bold, scientific experiments in faster than light travel.
Rayark is a relatively small game development studio in Taiwan, with a huge passion for creating comprehensive entertainment experiences. In the past, we have released several successful games: Cytus, Deemo, Mandora, and Implosion, and gained a great deal of support from our fans. We believe now is the time to bring the Implosion universe to life and deliver it to a wider audience.
- The mobile game was the first step and now the Implosion: ZERO_DAY movie is the next to realising our dream that we would like to share with YOU. We believe in and need the power of the backers here on Kickstarter to support us.
- Even though we have achieved a high number of downloads for the Implosion mobile game, the movie is a unique side of the story that needs to be told. We would like to invite YOU, our backers, to take part in our story as we begin the exciting journey into science-fiction fantasy.
- The production of a full-length feature animation is a huge task and requires a lot of resources. With your support, we can maintain the high quality we are known for and deliver a brand new kind of animation film.
“I'm excited for the opportunity to offer my insight in animated film production to help "Zero Day" bring its unique two- and three-dimensional universe into harmony.”

Risks and challenges
The Implosion: ZERO_DAY production team consists of some of the most passionate and talented professionals in the world. With the pledges received from you, we can maintain the high quality we are committed to and can deliver the promise of a brand new kind of animation film.
However, the production of a full-length feature animation is a difficult and risky endeavour. The scheduled timeline has been planned and estimated as well as possible, but since animation production is an iterative process, schedules cannot always be guaranteed. We will stay in constant communication with you, our community, to keep you up to date and informed on our progress.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Our plans are to produce the film in both English and in Mandarin Chinese, at the same time, we are evaluating the possibility to add a Japanese version. We are also considering various subtitle options.
Our plan is for ZERO_DAY to be a 90 minute HD feature animation film. Generally a PG-13 type film as far as language, violence and sexual content are concerned.
