Albino Lullaby: Episode 1 - Release Date: Late 2014/Early 2015

Hi Kickstarter community! We are really far along in development of our game Albino Lullaby; it is fun, looks amazing and is built from the ground up to also be compatible with the Oculus Rift!!! We are now seeking funding to invest in early marketing campaigns, while we put the finishing touches on the game, so we can bring our game to conventions, get some press, meet all of you, and bring you cool swag. Please back us, and thank you for your support!

The Pledge Descriptions are incorrect and should actually state, you will receive your copy of the full game Albino Lullaby: Episode 1 in Late 2014/Early 2015. 

Albino Lullaby is a first-person horror adventure game set in a dark and fun subterranean world. Clinging to the precipices of underground cliffs, the highly interactive environment twists and contorts around you in real time as you explore and puzzle your way through its equally twisted narrative. The atmospheric powers of Unreal Engine 4 transport the player into a world that etches it's way deep into the player's imagination through its impressionist art style. Designed from the ground up for compatibility with the Oculus Rift, Albino Lullaby aims to transport players to a new plane of perception and immersion.

Ape Law Our Studio
Out of the ashes of Boston’s AAA studios rises Ape Law, an Indie that challenges talented artists to take greater risks to make amazing games. Founded by Justin Pappas, with the mission of bringing story driven adventure games into the next generation, the former Lead Level Designer for Chivalry: Medieval Warfare and Level Designer for Bioshock: Infinite and Tomb Raider felt there was a better way to use games to tell deep and immersive stories. He put together a team of veteran developers from WB Games, Irrational, Harmonix, Hasbro and Torn Banner to build in depth adventure games with captivating story driven elements and deeply interactive environments. Ape Law's first game Albino Lullaby promises to deliver just that. 

Justin Pappas 
Ape Law Founder, Creative Director
Former Lead Level Designer for Chivalry: Medieval Warfare and Level Designer for Bioshock: Infinite and Tomb Raider. He founded Ape Law in 2012 after leading Chivalry to great success  and promises to do the same for Albino Lullaby, Ape Laws first game. He has that same Starship Troopers bug action figure that liz lemon has.

Ryan Patrick BuckleyAudio Director

He started his gaming career at Turbine back in 1998 and worked on their first two titles Asheron’s Call and Asheron’s Call 2. Since Turbine he’s worked as a contractor and consultant for both private and indie game companies. When not working you can find him programming. Sad, but true.

Emilee Kieffer
 Texture Artist, Modeler 
Low-poly modeler, art slinger, and hopelessly sleep deprived. Moved from Das Motherland (Wisconsin) to Chicago, Illinois to pursue a college degree and start her career as a game artist. Worked as a moderator for the official forum of a very “controversial” video game involving zombies and as a 2D artist on a gambling game for Unibet called Crime Pays. Has a slightly unhealthy obsession with octopuses, burritos, and cheesy horror movies.

Liscar Scott
 Art Lead
A super passionate 3D artist from Toronto, Canada. Was lead technical artist for World of Trinketz, a level designer for Bedlam Games, and an honors graduate from the Seneca College Gaming art and Animation program. Likes making mods for other games in his spare time, google Vanilla Sagat, and has an embarrassing number of action figures for a man his age.

Jack Dalrymple
 SVP of Marketing and Communications
Jack Dalrymple is an industry veteran at producing trailers and marketing games, Cinematics Director at Bit Fry, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Ape Law, and owner of Cap and Cut (CAPandCUT.com) a Boston based trailer house and creative design studio.

Risks and challenges

Because we are veteran AAA studio devs and are so far along in development, risks are minimized. All contributors will receive the demo at the close of funding, and with roughly 40 min of gameplay, it should help bridge the gap while waiting for the full game to launch this Winter.
