About

 
CHICKEN OUT MOBILE GAME 

We are creating a highly addictive mobile game for iOS and Android. The first 400 levels are in the making, and we plan to release the game late this summer.

GAMEPLAY: CHICKEN OUT BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE

You find yourself misplaced in an unfriendly factory that’s unsuitable for an organic free-range egg. You have to navigate past egg-cracking dangers until you finally hatch and become a chicken. But that’s just where the real challenges begin. Getting rid of the shell doesn’t mean you’re out of trouble. Now it’s really time to chicken out. No matter where you are in the game, you want to get out of there. But there’s no easy way out, especially not as the levels become more difficult. Chicken Out offers hours of fun. You can also just play a level or two on the bus or while waiting at the doctor’s office. (hopefully for nothing serious).
 

JUST WHEN YOU THINK YOU ARE OUT OF IT....WE DRAG YOU BACK IN 

Every challenge is followed by another, so you get to chicken out several hundred times before you’re finally free. If you’re ambitious, you can strive to improve your time. You can also collect points that you can use to buy the things every chicken craves, such as jet packs, jump balls, and diving equipment. You can also buy power tools and the necessary shields and armor to help you cut corners when the going gets tough.

YOU GOTTA ROLL BEFORE YOU CAN WALK 

Not unlike most other chickens, this chicken starts out as an egg. You have to help the egg through an unfriendly egg-cracking factory until it’s ready to hatch—or almost hatch. The chicken will remain between stages for some time (egg with legs so to speak) until it finally breaks out of the egg and acquires full agility.

OUT OF THE FRYING PAN AND INTO THE FIRE

The good news is that you are out of the egg. The bad news is that you must overcome lots of traps and obstacles to become a free chicken, including sharp objects, explosives, and other unhealthy working conditions. If you manage to collect enough points on the way, you can buy power-ups to help you pass some of the worst barriers. Otherwise, you have to be quick, smart, and patient.

THERE IS LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL 

No spoilers here—we’re not going to reveal what happens when you manage to chicken all the way out. But we promise that the chicken will survive. In fact, you will not only survive but also be ready for new adventures in the future. We are already dreaming up titles such as “The Good, the Bad, and the Eggly,” “The French Conneggtion,” and “Eggs and the City.”

SO WHAT DO WE WANT TO ACHIEVE 

First of all, we want to put more awesomeness into the game and bring it to the people. It’s really rewarding to see that people are downloading and playing our game – preferably a lot of people. We want to engage people and crowd source awesomeness, so to speak. And you’re invited.

WE NEED TO MAKE SOME NOISE 

The road to fame is paved with hard work. But it doesn’t hurt to have a little hard cash, too. We have been financing the production of the game ourselves so far, but external expenses are growing as we are approaching release. We need to make some noise and create awareness to succeed, and that doesn't come cheap.We want to show the world some serious chicken shit (excuse our language)

It is our dream to expand the team and consolidate our game development business, creating new characters and new adventures.

IF WE REACH OUR GOEL AT KICKSTARTER

With help from Kickstarter we can staff up the development team and manage to release the full scale game on both iOS and Android late this summer. We can establish ressources to make our strategic promotion plan happen, and maybe even afford a little guerrilla activity to draw attention to the game. We welcome engagement and good ideas, so please join our community to take part. 100% of the funding is spent on Chicken Out and awards for backers. If we raise more money, we will do more, and we’ll let you know our plans and actions as we go along.

It cannot be a photograph or an illustration that is not in line with the visual identity of the game.

IF YOU THINK THIS IS KID’S STUFF

You are right. We have censored the worst blood, violence, and cruelty to animals out of the game, and frontal nudity is no worse than what Disney has gotten away with for years. But though it is suitable for kids, the game is known to be challenging enough to make grown men sweat.

THE TEAM
It is always great to work with engaged people who enjoy what they are doing and are not afraid to walk the extra mile. We complement each other very well, and as the privileged bosses we are, Anders and Jørgen would like to thank you guys. We are proud to work with you.

Joachim Agertoft Character design and animation, level design and motion graphics

Mark Helmich Graphical user interface design, look & feel, UX and video editing

 Anders Gerner Game developing, backend development, server and database configuration, and all the really IT’ish stuff

Jørgen Juul Creative Direction, concept and marketing

Anders Hjarnaa Technical Lead, producer and production management

Risks and challenges

The risk that Chicken Out is not going to happen is very small. The main risk is not so much that the project won’t be realised, but more how commercially successful we will be on the market. We are certain that we can deliver the promised digital and physical objects for rewarding of backers. In case of unforeseen obstacles, we will do our best to notify backers about any delay or other problem and explain how we are going to handle the problem.
