ROTA is a Gravity Bending Puzzle Platformer with a 1-Bit Art Style and LoFi Hip-Hop Soundtrack, to be released on Windows, Mac, and Linux.

The main puzzle mechanic in ROTA is the ability to manipulate the gravity of yourself, and other objects.

ROTA is being created by one sole independent developer, haretro.

The Soundtrack of ROTA can be described as LoFi Hip-Hop. It is designed to be a very relaxing soundtrack. The chill music direction is aimed towards a more focused puzzle solving experience for the player.

Provided below are two hand-picked samples from the ROTA soundtrack:

Stretch Goals are bonuses and extra content that will be include in the full release if the goal has been met!

If we reach the $3,500 goal, the game will be available for download on PlayStation 4! If we reach the goal of $5,000 ROTA will be available for download from the Nintendo E-Shop on Nintendo Switch!

$3,000 - 10 Bonus Levels

This goal will unlock an additional 10 Bonus Levels available to play in ROTA!

$3,500 - Release for PlayStation 4

When this milestone is reached, the game will be available for download from the PlayStation Store for the Sony PlayStation 4.

$4,000 - Expanded Soundtrack

This goal will expand ROTA's soundtrack from a 5 track album, to a 10 track album! All the songs will be featured in the game.

$5,000 - Release for Nintendo Switch

When this milestone is reached, the game will be available for download from the Nintendo E-Shop for the Nintendo Switch.

$6,000 - 10 More Bonus Levels

This final goal will unlock and additional 10 Bonus Levels, coming to 20 Bonus Levels! This count does not affect backer designed bonus puzzles in the "Kickstarter Bonus Puzzle Pack"

Risks and challenges

The core gameplay and puzzle solving mechanics of ROTA have already been fully implemented, whats left to do is rather time consuming though. I have many puzzles left to design, the complete soundtrack and sound effects to produce, as well as provide an enriched user experience.

If I reach my initial goal of $2,500 USD, I will finish this game, but just for Windows, Mac, and Linux. Through the support of the Kickstarter community, I will be able to publish ROTA on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4, but this is only if the proper stretch goals have been met.

I currently work a job part time, and work on ROTA part time. With the support of this Kickstart Campaign I will be able to focus full time on ROTA and finish development of the game much sooner than I would be able to otherwise. The money from this campaign will go towards my living expenses, as I am the sole developer on this project.

Thank you for taking the time to read my Kickstarter Campaign! I can't wait to get ROTA into your hands!
