About

Through stealth, physical dexterity, and bravery; players must utilize a combination of strategy and Nyx’s abilities to overcome obstacles. Be it from fear of enemies capturing or killing you to avoiding hazardous environmental barriers, we want players to feel an unwavering desire to return home to Nyx's best friend Jazzmine as the journey progresses.

Plays Like: A fast paced, sneaky, and sophisticated mix of Cat and Mouse in each of the levels. While using a combination of platforming, stealth, and action; Nyx disrupts enemy aggression while also surviving the trials of the Syterran desert world.  

 

  • Game of Hunter and Hunted (Inspired by Metroid Fusion) 3 Styles of Play (Action, Stealth, Platformer) Dynamic Levels (Linear Outcome but Non-Linear layout)
  • Level Designs: Overcoming Environmental Hazards and Natural Obstacles while also Evading and Defeating Enemies. 
  • Nyx Enhancement: 3 Branch Trait System where players can focus on their style of play, whether it be Action (Attack) based, Stealth based, or boosting Nyx's Platforming Skills.

MoonRift Entertainment is a company built on the foundation of imagination to produce change. We strive to be the premier storyteller through Creative Development and Authentic Diversity, while producing an Immersive and Entertaining Experience for everyone to enjoy. And we all say, TO THE MOON!!

Members of the team!

"As a start up, we came into this project with nothing more than a passion, a vision, and a dream. We strive to be more than just video game creators. The dedication of our entire team to build the foundation of something great has gotten us to this point, where we are nothing but grateful. Reaching our goal would be just the beginning of a great journey for us, granting us access to the resources we need to be able to get our game off the ground. Anything more opens the door for us to truly allow our imaginations to come through in our work. We are PROUD to begin our adventure with Nyx the Haijun Chameleon. We here at MoonRift Entertainment sincerely appreciate any and all support from the community whom we work so hard to please. To the Moon!”

 

 

Mark of the Ninja: Mark of the Ninja showcases the clean combination between stealth and strategy versus full on action. We take great care when designing levels and making in game decisions to ensure that the players never encounters a dull or uninteresting moment.

Disney Infinity: We believed that the Disney infinity look and art style could fit our game very well. So we made some of our own modifications and tweaks and are very happy with the results!

Donkey Kong Country: We admire Donkey Kong Country for its ability to create the immense feeling of an entire world you are traveling and the various natural obstacles as well as enemies that face your way. Nyx the Chameleon, in the same way, immerses players into the Syterran world with many challenges of its own. 

Metroid Fusion: We wanted to emphasize this idea that Nyx isn't some veteran assassin hunting down targets, but rather that he is the one being hunted. That he's more prey than predator, and that sometimes there are challenges that can't be overcome. We got a lot of inspiration for this from the Metroid series, Fusion in particular, where an overwhelmingly powerful enemy mercilessly stalks the player and the only option is to run, hide, and try to be stronger next time. (Terminator as well now that I think about it. Hmm... seems really obvious in hindsight)

 

We believe in forming a community and establishing relationships with others who are enthusiastic about video games and entertainment as a whole. We do not want to have publishers or investors breathing down our necks or micromanaging our creative process and thus we have decided to believe in the support of the Kickstarter community in helping us to create this project.

How can you help? Donate! What does your money help us with? It helps us design the game that will change your love for all other video games! It helps us create a world where we can help Nyx the Chameleon come home! It provides an outlet for video game artists who want to create a game for YOU!

Risks and challenges

First and right off the bat we have previously launched an unsuccessful campaign with this game. We learned...a lot and to be honest we weren't ready.

But just like how we kept going and persevered to get you more content, game play, mechanics, artwork, animations, and overall entertainment is the same with how we intend to complete this game NO MATTER WHAT IT TAKES.

As stated before, "ALL SETBACKS RETURN WITH A LESSON AND THE ABILITY TO DO BETTER."

At MoonRift Entertainment, with each high-impact failure there leaves room for tremendous success. We were unsuccessful before, but now with your help it is time to reap the rewards and get this project funded for the WORLD TO ENJOY.
