Join Aspen in a life-or-death struggle to save the alien world Bawk, a place where warriors pilot massive metal titans called Omegamechs, ruling the battlefield with high tech weaponry and super-science, while political intrigue behind the scenes tips the galaxy ever closer to chaos.
Welcome to the video game Omegatech, a top-down, arcade-style mech shooter slated to be released in early July 2012. Set in a world torn apart by civil war, Omegatech puts you in the role of a young soldier, the only person left on the ground who can save the planet. The game is designed to adapt to your style of play so that, as you progress through the levels, your mech and missions become specialized to you. Our initial release will be for IOS, with later releases for Android, PC, and consoles. You can read more about Omegatech, follow our blog, and even apply to be a beta tester for the demo at: http://www.omegatechgame.com
Omegatech isn’t your typical mobile game. In addition to fun quests, amazing graphics, and play style adaptability, we offer: • The opportunity to earn upgrades. • A choose-your-own adventure, non-linear storyline. • Both single-player AND multi-player. • A community forum where you can meet other players who love the game. • And much, much more!
Omegatech is being brought to you by MegaWorld Studios, a brand new gaming company made up of both industry pros and those who are just starting out in the field. Our team consists of engineers, artists, and writers from all over the world. All of the time and effort put in by each of us has been entirely unpaid. We’re doing it because it’s the work that we love and because we believe in this project, but many of us are struggling financially and need your help to continue working as a part of the team.
Reaching our $50,000 funding level will start helping us get the extra production bandwidth to let the game reach new levels. More levels, more story, more art, more robots, more power-ups. However, if you, the donors, are feeling particularly generous to catapult this game into your hands, we’re prepared to give you even more for your money. If our funding reaches $75,000, our lead engineer will dye his beard blue (check out the video – it’s a pretty epic beard!). At $100,000, our CEO will shave his head completely bald (and he’s been growing it out since his beginning days working on Star Wars the Old Republic!). This makes it such high quality that it becomes one of the best app store downloads ensuring sequels to follow.
Ultimately, our commitment is to producing a high-quality product that is playable, interesting, and seriously enjoyable. We hope you’ll help us achieve that goal!
We’re not planning on delivering just one great game. We’re planning on releasing ***A WHOLE SERIES OF FUN***. The Omegatech adventure doesn’t stop with our July release date. Each of our launches will be built on already existing game structure, allowing for rapid expansion. Instead of waiting several years for releases, you, the player, will receive frequent updates. Future releases in our series will include: appearance control, tournaments, environment control (build your own level), RPG, MMO, and lots more. For a full list of our future release goals, please visit our update page.
Every bit of help enables us to make an already great idea into something amazing.
