About

UPDATES:
OKAY, HEAR ME OUT, LISTEN TO MY STORY!

GOALS: 

The Name:

The word "Nahual" comes from the Nahuatl language, which depending on who you ask for, Nahual has various meanings, some use this term to describe monsters or beings capable of changing form, which we primary use it to describe magic monsters, which some can shape shift, some of them are big and strong, and some of them neither.

La palabra Nahual viene de la lengua Nahuatl la cual tiene multiples significados dependiendo de a quien le preguntes, según lo que pudimos investigar también se usa para describir o nombrar monstruos o bestias extrañas, así es la forma como nosotros lo utilizamos, como monstruos mágicos, los cuales unos pueden cambiar de forma, otros son grandes y fuertes y otros no pueden hacer ninguna de las dos.

The name "The end is Nahual" is a play of words to the phrase The end is nigh.

The Game:

"The End Is Nahual: If I May Say So" is a point & click game, full of mini-games, action, bad puns, Mighty Pianos with existential problems and of course a carousel full of handsome soldiers.

The End is Nahual: If I May Say So" es un juego point and click, lleno de mini juegos, acción, chistes malos, Pianos imponentes con problemas existenciales y carruseles llenos de soldados guapos. 

Being developed for Windows, MAC and LINUX(for now).

Siendo desarrollado para Windows, MAC y LINUX (por ahora).

You play as Jacob, the antagonist, and the antagonist of the antagonist Sammael, with who you shall resolve puzzles, combine items at your leisure (of course, if the game allows it), play mini games that will challenge you in personal and spiritual level, and of course you shall meet weird characters that would make an effort to help you, or make your life hell (we are really expecting for both).

Tu juegas como Jacob, el antagonista, y como el antagonista del antagonista Sammael, con quienes tu resolverás acertijos, combinaras items cuando tu quieras (claro si el juego te lo permite), jugaras mini juegos que te cambiaran tanto de forma personal como espiritual, y claro conocerás personajes raros que harán su mejor esfuerzo para ayudarte, o hacer tu vida un infierno, (esperamos que hagan las dos).

FEATURES:  

-2 interconnected stories, play as Jacob the little conqueror, destroyer of the east cities and descent from the Axtlans and the Westerners, also play as Sammael, The last survivor of an ancient civilization of beasts that fed on humankind.

-Dos historias interconectadas, juega como Jacob el pequeño conquistador, destructor de las ciudades del este y descendiente de los Axtlanes y los occidentales, también juegas como Sammael, ultimo sobreviviente de bestias que se alimentaban de la humanidad.

-Beautifully animated 16 bit pixel art combined with modern techniques. 

-Arte de Pixel bellamente animado a 16bits combinado con tecnología moderna.

-Full of mini games, action, puns and explosions, inspired by ancient games and ancient cultures.

  • Use your mighty hips to play Mesoamerican ball or ōllamaliztli. 
  • Usa las caderas que te dieron los Dioses para jugar el juego de pelota o ōllamaliztli.
  • Use your wits and confront the spirits that oppose your path. 
  • Usa tu ingenio para confrontarte con espiritus que se oponen en tu camino
  • They will throw attacks at you, but if you're quick enough, you can pass the attacks and punch the big headed being that was making you fail, as reward.
  • Te lanzaran los ataques que puedan, pero si eres veloz, puedes sobrepasarlos y golpear al cabezón que te ha hecho fallar, como recompensa a tu valor.
  • Even trash bags fear you, as you're a nahual, but you need to listen to them and shake them for clues, so that you know what's inside them, use the content to ring a bell and stop an unpaid internship shift. Would you free them?
  • Hasta la basura te teme, por ser un nahual, pero necesitas poder escuchar y agitarlas para obtener pruebas, y saber que hay dentro de ellas, usar el contenido para poder timbrar una campana y detener el turno de los internos no pagadas. Los liberaras?

Our Cast of Characters: 

Personajes                              

 

Team:

The Marvelous Team of Third world Productions.

Blas David “Team Leader”

Creator, Lead Composer, Pixel artist, Lead programmer, Level Designer, VFX designer, and Nahual screamer aficionado.

Meztli Martinez Cuevas: “3D generalist and VFX” 

Creates pixel art, VFX, 3D models, 3D animations, and 2D prop animations. Co-writer of the script. If you cannot pronounce her first name, her second name is Mariana.

Sergio Rebolledo: “2D Pixel-art prop designer” 

Creates scenes of beautiful pixel art and is an expert on everything that involves design and pixel art. Legend says he only cooks in Canada.

Julia Abud: “3D artist and programmer”

Senior programmer in charge of programming everything that’s not being programmed by Blas, including the Point and click part and some mini-games. She knows over 50 different ways of saying ok, including Seperelepe, Okaslokas, Okis, and so on.

Julian Carrillo Vargas: “2D lead animator”

Almost everything that moves in the game was animated by him. He is also the character designer, and is now an expert on bad puns… we blame Blas for this behavior.

Music:

Let’s talk about music, as the creator on chief and audio designer for the game, a lot of care, love and just a tiny pinch of blood is needed to make the music of the game.

Here we ha some of the tracks for you:

  • The player just begin to play the game, it's afraid and lacks the hope and fortitude to solve the tests, but then this song plays, and it's all gonna be okay, for now...
  • Jacob has been defeated, is being tied up and he doesn’t remember the safe word.
  • Sammael feels a little strength in itself to defeat the Teyocoyani, but it’s not enough, until the chorus starts and then it finds in itself the power
  • A mysterious witch finds herself trapped and only the gods and her ability to solve puzzles can free her.

ART:

The end is nahual visual style is made by a combination of 2d pixel art with certain elements in 3d which allows us to push camera work and perspective, also it gives a modern twist on traditional pixel art. 

 

 

 

 

 

Project Status:

A big part of the mini games are finished, almost all of the art assets are being finished, and almost all of the music and Audio FXs have been created and heard. We are working on the Alpha of the PAC (Point and Click for the cool kids), but there is still much to be done. The final bosses need to be completed: scenes, VFXs, and testing. And of course, if the stretch goals are met, we can make an even better game than we hoped for.

Budget:

Currency exchange:

The type of exchange rate may change depending on multiple things, but this is an approximation.

We'd like to remind you that we are Game Developers and not economists, and the quantities we put on the tiers may change.

Why kickstarter?

We want to have the freedom to make the weird game we have been wanting to make, and we strongly believe that Kickstarter is the way to that destination. Of course we want to make you part of the development... and to make you happy, because in the end that’s all that matters.

And of course, as of right now, we are not receiving money from a publisher and all that has been made was made with our own money.

Risks and challenges

Humanity may collapse in on itself and our new monkey overlords may govern us with an iron fist, and of course they don’t like games, so that could greatly complicate the development of the game.

Joking aside, our principal risk is running out of time and money, because making games is hard, complicated and expensive. We have confidence that we planned thoroughly and we have a lot of experience in the team, and we had been working on this project for years. That helps us get a better picture of what’s to come and how much we need.

We are committed to communicate with our backers and ensuring that everyone gets their rewards. If there are delays we will keep you informed in any given case.

We’re so close now, and we need your help to make this project a reality.
