Kitten Epic is an open world puzzle-adventure game with an emphasis on exploration and problem solving. From the condo our kitten has the ability to travel to the corners of earth and find his family. The Dubai condo will act as a hub and a place where Epic can bring his family along with a few friends.

/\ /\ Vast worlds to explore with dungeons and puzzles

/\ /\ A world full of animals with their own stories and struggles

/\ /\ Adding in more dialogue and story with new NPC's

/\ /\ Adding ability to change between animals during specific quest.

/\ /\ Possibly adding a VR level or stretch goal mini VR game.

/\ /\ Possibly adding Local and online co-op

The Story of Teddy the Cat

Teddy was the best cat but Teddy loved the outdoors. In fact when we went camping for two weeks he wondered those woods the entire time we were in the Colorado mountains. But Teddy learned that he loved the outdoors too much and when we got back to the city he never wanted to come in. Eventually he stopped coming back and no amount of fliers or searching ever brought him back. This game is and will be dedicated to Teddy. He is also one of the cats in the game. Long live Teddy!

 Why KickStarter?

For you guys! Sure the money will help but this game is coming no matter what so what we are looking for is other people to get as excited about this project as we are. The money will help speed things up so that we can focus on the game instead of spending half our time doing freelance work. Support Kitten Epic and we will be furever in your debt. 

Risks and challenges

This is game development so delays are possible but we have the core features, sufficient time, built worlds, and the experience to get it done.

Writing has its slumps but one of us was a creative writing English major in college and along with the help of our community we can make this a fun, compelling and compassionate story.

Platforms. Each platform has a different path to be able to release a game. We have released games on multiple platforms and should be able to release on all platforms.
