Help us make 'Super Family Hero' more entertaining and develop new content such as Interactive Stories, Mini Games and Garments & Accessories for avatars!
THE MAIN CONCEPT
Super Family Hero proposes a new way to have fun in family, using screens around us in a fresh and funny way. We want parents to take part at their children's digital games!
- You can play in family
- With the same screen
- At the same time
- But each player at his own level of difficulty
Through Mini Games and Interactive Stories, players will get into SuperMum&Dad’s world and Dr.Excuses’s island. Adults and Children will find challenges at their own level of difficulty.
You can take part in dangerous Missions and Family Challenges to decide your own adventure and beat villain flunkies.
COLLABORATIVE GAMES AND APPROPRIATE LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY FOR EACH PLAYER
Our Mini Games are Collaborative and have been designed to entertain all kinds of gamers of the same family. This is why you’ll find different kinds of games like puzzles, arcade, runners, memory games, etc.
Playing to Super Family Hero you won’t have to let your kids beat you anymore! We design Mini Games which adapt the level of difficulty to the profile of each family player. You ‘all find a real incentive in each game.
To Start the game you (1) create your Family Team and (2) add the Avatar for each member of the family who wants to play.
Then you can play Up to 4 People at a time using the same device. Or even more players by sharing your turn, but you'all add gems to the same Family Team. You can always sum to your family although you want to play in Single Mode.
FIRST VERSION ALREADY LAUNCHED
We have already launched the first version of Super Family Hero. You can find it for tablets and smartphones in AppleStore and GooglePlay Store. To play several players at a time, we strongly recommend to use tablets or smartphones with large screens, so all the players can enjoy the experience!
It includes the 1st Interactive Story and 4 Mini Games:
But we know we can improve this version a lot:
- We want to make it more entertaining and pleasant
- We want to offer a better user experience
- We want to add more levels and new challenges
- We want to optimize technical issues, like the weight of the app, which today consumes too much memory of a device
- And we want to consolidate a big community of families, adults and children.
WHO WE ARE
The project is leaded by Alvaro Gámiz, a professional in Family Entertainment whose passion is to 'help Adults play with their Children'.
"As parents of 4 children, my wife and I were very interested in playing with them, but specially in how to increase fun while we played with kids of different ages."
"I was so passioned about it that I quit my job and created 'SuperMum&Dad', a company which produces events where family members play together. And I learned a lot about how family members play and interact when they play together as a team".
"One evening, playing with 100 families in a Mall in Barcelona, I thought that it would be fantastic to help all those families to play together also at home. So I thought about the idea of creating a videogame designed focusing in how family members play together: Super Family Hero."
In those days, Alvaro had met Rubén Bernal and his team of artists and game developers. They felt an amazing connection with the project and began to work together to start giving shape to the videogame.
WHAT YOU CAN FIND TODAY
Current version of the game includes:
- 1 - FAMILY'S MAIN MENU
- 2 - AVATAR'S ROOM
- 3 - 1st INTERACTIVE STORY
- 4 - MINI GAMES
- 5 - MEDALS AND BADGES
FAMILY'S MAIN MENU
When you start playing to Super Family Hero you create your Family Team and add the avatar for each member of the family who wants to play.
The Sitting-room becomes the main menu of the game. There you can add players, dress current players and access to Interactive Stories and Mini Games menus.
In this room you can customize and personalize your avatar. You start playing with a packet of 750 gems. As you advance in the mini games and stories you win more gems to get different garments and accessories.
FIRST INTERACTIVE STORY
We want to turn family-shared-time into a Great Experience, so what can help us better than immersing the whole family in a series of Adventures?
Through these Interactive Stories several storylines will guide players through all scenes on Doctor Excuses’s Island. Our mini games appear as different challenges to keep going through the adventure. Your results in mini games will draw you different paths to move forward.
We have already desgined and developed 4 mini games that you can play in current version of Super Family Hero:
- 1 - Panic Robot
- 2 - Augmented Machine
- 3 - Cave Escape
- 4 - Endless Runner
Panic Robot is a multiplayer-collaborative-game that will place you at the entrance of Doctor Excuses’s laboratory cave.
Put your fingers on the ships to avoid robots’ attacks by throwing them water-balloons. Each balloon will cause the robots a short-circuit. Enjoy playing in 'single mode' or 'multiplayer', up to 4 players at a time.
Try to defend each of the 4 areas in which you can divide the game screen! Ships’ control adapts to each player’s profile.
Augmented Machine is a puzzle game that you can play using your camera and a paperboard through Augmented Reality technology; or you can play it directly with the screen dragging and dropping the mechanics.
It places you inside Doctor Excuses's laboratory, where he keeps stolen power spheres. To get the spheres back you can use the Augmened Machine: a magic machine that works with different mechanics.
You’ll have to put these mechanics in the right box in order to complete the right route.
Decide with your family which mechanics to use, and where to place them so you can get the spheres back!
You can play in family by cutting out the paper mechanics and the paper board. While one of the players puts the paper piece on the board, another can hold the tablet to take a picture and scan the mechanics!
In Cave Escape you get inside the dangerous underground mazes of Doctor Excuses. You’ll have to find the lifts that will guide you to the next levels.
It won’t be a piece of cake!
You’ll find many traps like rivers full of lava, fire balls, robot flunkies… Your collaboration as a team is the key to keep advancing through the mazes. If any of the players leaves the ship uncontrolled for a long time you’ll have to start the level again.
Endless Runner is a funny game where you'll have to escape from the robots which try to catch you!
To move your vehicle, a cute robotic goat, you'll have to collaborate with the rest of players to be touch the appropriate colors!
MEDALS AND BADGES
While you play to Interactive Story and complete the Mini Games you win gems. But you also complete a series of challenges that give you Medals and Badges. These rewards give you extra gems and special rewards and accessories.
WHAT YOU CAN HELP US TO DO
As you can see, we have worked a lot to start shaping the videogame! Current version of the game is available for free at AppleStore and GooglePlay. But there's much more work to do!
- We want to improve current version of the game
- We want to make it more entertaining and pleasant
- We want to offer a better user experience and interface (UX/UI)
- We want to add more new content
- But the most important thing, as we want to help thousands of families to play together, is to consolidate a big community of families, adults and children. And this is where backers can help us more!
This is the detailed list of things in which we are going to work with backers' help:
1. Improve what we have:
- We will optimize technical issues, like the weight of the app, which is currently too heavy, or the conversion from local to online interface, so users will be able to login to the game from any device.
- We will improve user experience and user interface to offer a better experience, specially when playing various players at a time.
- We will improve current Interactive Story and current Mini Games: we want to make them more entertaining by adding new levels, more flunkies, new challenges and series of boosters.
2. Generate New content:
- We will design and develop new content for avatars: dresses, garments and accessories for all types of avatars.
- We will design and develop a complete new Mini Game.
- We will develop game's store to allow fans buy boosters, accesories and avatars' items.
- We will prepare the script and storyboard of the 2nd story to be ready to produce it in a following phase, that will require more support and resources.
- We will translate the game to more languages such as french, german, dutch, mexican, brazilian, russian, italian, and several latinamerican-spanish.
3. And even more:
If the amount reached exceeds our initial goal we will be able to start a cycle of developement of content and improvement of game experience that will allow us to consolidate our human structure and company's resources.
This cycle will start with the production of 2nd Interactive Story and will go on working in new mini games, characters, boosters and accesories, and producing following interactive stories plus working in new ideas we have in mind. These are our stretch goals:
Funds collected will allow us to work on new 'Super Family Hero' stuff. To keep working we have to take care of our team. We have to assure them salaries and material resources so they can focus on what they have to create and develop. Backers have a fundamental role then!
We will split the resources into these line items:
To receive support from our community of Friends, Fans and Backers is what can make us the happiest guys in the world!
We want to specially thank our backers by sharing out some 'Rewards':
This is the Outline of Rewards to help you choose!:
We want to make all this new stuff with the social support of our community of Backers, Players and Fans, whose opinion will guide us through all this process.
We don't want to make the game we think families love, we want to make the game families love!
Risks and challenges
We know that designing and producing a game is an adventure full of challenges and surprises. We have learned a lot of things developing the first version of 'Super Family Hero'. Our experience facing all those difficulties and unexpected situations has prepared us to keep working in next versions. We are ready to face new challenges cause there are going to be new difficulties during all way long!
This is why we have been conservative about our possibilities and objectives when designing this crowdfunding campaign. Our focus is to achieve the goals we set, and those goals are realistic. We are confident we can achieve them all and in time.
We are a passioned team and we will incorporate more people as we follow our plan. One of our main occupations is to find more talented artists and programmers to join us. They have to tremble like we do when we start working every single day. But it is very important that we can offer them the best conditions to make them worry just about their tasks! So we pay specially attention to this issue, cause we know we have a great idea, a good initial version of the game, but what will make the difference is the team we are able to add.
Another important aspect is to find the balance between our game and what our community expects from it. This is why we want to have a significant community of testers so we can get feedback and redirect our targets and tasks.
To finish, we want to highlight a technical issue: our phylosophy is to work with the most flexible technical tools, like Unity software which gives us a lot of possibilities to redirect different aspects of the content we develop. However technology runs fast, and we have to be aware and prepared to addapt to changes in technical best practices, and this can challenge us to be creative and find the soltution to achieve our goals with new rules.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
