About this project

Hello!

"Bazooka" Ben here! Our team of two are making a game called Private Joe: Urban Warfare. It is a 2d arcade shooter that guarantees to rock the very foundations of gaming!

About Private Joe : Urban Warfare

You play as Private Joe, a mercenary hired to rescue prisoners from remote parts of the world. Only this time, you have to infiltrate an urban holding facility, protected by the deadliest enemies - soldiers, machine gunners, rocketeers, tanks, and yes, SWOOPING bomber jets in the sky! (see video)

Origins of the game

Talk about a 2d arcade shooter that pumps your adrenaline! The very first prototype of the game was made 4 months ago. It's called Private Joe. We created it as a web game. Here is the link to play (have fun, it's got 8 levels, and is pretty challenging)

Wow! I liked Private Joe. When is Urban Warfare going to release?

Thanks! It's scheduled to be released in Fall 2011, hopefully with your support and encouragement!

Gameplay

Missions: Currently in the labs are very exciting missions meant to blow you away! The main objective is to rescue the prisoners, but beware of twists in the game plot. There will be emphatic victories, losses, and yes... betrayals! 

Weapons: What you saw in the video was cool, but wait till you read this: pump-action shotguns, flamethrowers, bazookas, trip mines, airstrikes, and tactical nuclear strikes are in the works!

Enemies: A lineup of very bad enemies (VBE) await you. Think of invisible assassins and 10 story tall monsters that spew toxic waste, and you're very close!

Badges & High Score: Collect cool badges as you accomplish tasks. Share your high scores and compete with friends!

Technology

It was a conscious design decision to use HTML5 as the driving technology behind the game! With HTML5, it's clean, lean, and mean. Entities are easy to model, and animate. It is also easy to port the games to  PC, Mac, iOS and Android versions.

What's the money for?

100% of the requested money will go into

  • creating more assets ( about 1500 files including graphics, sound fx and music )
  • creating more levels and missions using our level editor
  • making PC, Mac, Android and iOS versions

Everything above 100% will contribute to

  • creating a multiplayer game ( YES, you can fight your friends online or over the LAN. Control the tanks, rocketeers and bomber planes and wreak havoc on your friends' camp )
  • acquire technology to port the game into Sony PS3 and XBox Live Arcade versions. 
  • fund a trip to GamesCOM 2011 (end of August in Germany)
