About

OUR STORY

My son loves garbage trucks. I tried downloading every Garbage Truck game in the app store but none of them held my son's interest for more than five minutes. The trucks in those games were flat and cartoonish. He actually preferred watching youtube garbage-trucks videos over playing the games.

I desperately searched for a truck game that married video realism with interactivity, but it didn't exist. Luckily for me, I know a genius FX Technical Director who said he could build it. And he did. He created a realistic, player controlled, touch based, 3D garbage truck.The truck has a fully functioning arm that reaches out, picks up and dumps trash.

The game comes with multiple street scenes, view angles and challenge levels. There's even a town for the garbage truck to drive around in. My son loves it. He plays for hours on end.

What began as a quest to find the perfect game for my son has led to us developing a unique game playing experience. Something too good not to share with everyone. But we'll need your help in order to do it. We're nearly there! We just need to finalize and debug game-pay. Please help us finish our game and share our project with friends who have kids.  

The game is perfect for kids aged two to seven, people who love trucks and techies interested in seeing where art meets technology.

STRETCH GOALS

As our project grew. We realized we had a lot more than just a garbage truck app. We started expanding the city and adding more vehicles. A fire truck. A dump truck. Police Car. Helicoptor...the list goes on. Each vehicle with its own game play. But to bring all that to life we're going to need more help. Here is a list of our Stretch Goals.

Stretch Goal 1: $20,000

An amped-up city that matches the realism of the garbage truck. More realistic buildings. Game-play at traffic lights and some sneaky surprises. 

Stretch Goal 2: $35,000 - $60,000

We want to add fully functioning game-within-a-game tasks for our other four service vehicles in the following order

  • Firetruck: You have complete control of the truck as it puts out fires, saves kittens from trees and aids in rescue missions.
  • Dump Truck: When you're not busy at work helping to build up the city, you're negotiating driving along some winding roads.
  • Earth Mover: You need to dig deep, smooth out and build up future construction sites.
  • Police Car: From car chases to traffic stops, you control the action.
  • Helicopter: You have a bird's eye view of the the city and can just fly around exploring or aid in the various rescue missions going on around town.

Stretch Goal 3: $80,000

A Skateboarder skates around alternating between avoiding obstacles and becoming one him/herself.

Stretch Goal 4: $100,000

Monkeys. Monkeys have escaped from the zoo and are creating havoc
all over the city.

Risks and challenges

We are a team of perfectionists so the biggest risk we have is spending to much time on one element. Our goal is to put out a multi-level, photorealistic game and this takes time. What we've done so far has helped us gauge the final stretch and we are confident that we will meet our deadline for the Garbage Truck game on time. Our stretch goals include adding Firetruck, Dump Truck, Earth Mover, Police Car and Helicopter games to our overall city. Although these won't be ready for our debut release, our rewards include access to the first release of any vehicles launched within the RealWheelz city.

The game currently works on my Android phone and IOS now we just need to finalize game-play and user levels so children of all ages can enjoy it.

We have been playing with some exciting customizations for the game, an example being user uploaded backgrounds. We are offering this as a reward, and it might take a couple of passes to get outside elements to work cohesively within the game.
