Intro To Garden Paws
You have inherited your grandparents farm and shop as they set off to travel the world. Work with Frank at the local construction shop to finish off the final touches and get your shop running.
Aid Frank and Mayor Wilson in building up the town. Collect resources and coin to commission new buildings, each bringing unique Upgrades, Shops, Quests and more!
To build up the town you need coins, what better way to earn those then by running a shop! Explore the islands and its caves to collect everything from flowers to poop to sell in your shop.
No matter who you are, a farmer, an explorer, a warrior, there is more to do on these islands than you'll have time for.
Relax in this role-playing game that doesn't limit your play style. Create your perfect simulation, whether you want to spend your days farming, exploring, questing or fighting.
Let us walk you through some of the many features you will find in this game.
Start off at your grandparents farm, but don't stop there. There are many islands nearby for you to explore from the tops of waterfalls to the depths of caves.
Not only that, take a boat to new islands, but be sure to have the right gear. Stay warm in the treacherous snowy peaks with earmuffs, or protect yourself from the desert sands with goggles.
With each area that you explore there are new items to find, collect, sell and even wear. Around every corner there is a chance to find hidden treasure, so you'll want to explore every chance you get.
But don't go too far, the townsfolk will need your help as they ask you to complete quests while aiding them on rebuilding their town, especially when a natural disaster strikes.
Once the mining camp is built, ask for the help of the miners to clear up the rubble and open new mining caves. Don't worry, there won't be any spirits here, only geodes and treasure.
You don't have to go alone on this new adventure, invite up to three friends to join. From shopkeeping to taming and exploring, everything is better with friends.
As the server host you can open your home to friends that will fully be able to interact in your world. Host a public or private server to play with old friends or make new ones.
Don't want them to touch your stuff? Lock your chests and assign individual permissions as you (the host) see fit.
Found a flower or rock you think your customers will love? Open your shop between 12:00 and 18:00 and watch the money roll in.
Upgrade your shop from a small single table stand to a large extravagant showstopper. Personalize your shop with mannequins to show off your accessories and hats for sale. Or hang paintings on the walls to allure customers into paying more.
Run your shop your way.
The land is not without its terrors. There is a local mine that has been boarded up since the townsfolk have heard tales of an evil necromancer raising the dead. With your help the townsfolk have a chance to put these once peaceful creatures back to their resting place.
Explore dungeons that seem to change every time you visit with new corridors and rooms to explore. There are many levels to the dungeon and the deeper you go the more perilous your journey but the more rewards you can find.
These dungeons will be the only place to find ancient artifacts to sell in your shop for profit or donate to the museum for fame.
Tired of selling boring sticks and stones? Use your crafting skills to create works of art fit for a king. Make sure to upgrade your tools and equipment to unlock new recipes and blueprints.
Use wood and stone to create anything from from boxes, tables and chairs to mannequins, walls, and boats. Unlock these expert level blueprints by improving your skill over time.
The crafting doesn't limit you there, craft 250+ items to either sell in your shop, use for quests or place around your home.
There are many crafting stations to work from including; a cooking station, carpenters table, alchemy station, and more. The more you use a station and enhance that skill the more you will unlock new recipes for your profession and earn more coin along the way.
Dig up your seeds with flowers and vegetables in the wild or talk to Sammy the Seed Seller to purchase new seeds. Use your hoe to till the soil so it's soft enough to plant a seed.
Once planted, make sure to water it every day until your plant is fully grown. After a couple of days, reap your rewards, and harvest the flowers and veggies to sell in your shop or craft into new items.
There is water everywhere! So it's no surprise that the villagers on these islands like to fish. Whether it's dawn or dusk there is a large variety of fish to catch off the shores or in the lakes. Use different bait to have a higher chance of catching rare fish.
Learn how to catch your first fish from a local that gives you his trusty fishing rod. With your rod and bait in hand, relax and lose track of time while fishing on the coast of these beautiful islands.
What farm is complete without animals? From Chicks to Pigs and Hippos there are many lovable creatures for you to befriend, tame and raise on your land.
Talk to Frank about building your first Chicken Coop. Once it's built, with the help of the locals, learn how to raise Chicks to Chickens.
From here use and expand your skills to tame any animal you see across the islands. Learn how to befriend the animals with their favorite foods, from a carrot to a horse and honey to a bear, there is a unique strategy to taming any creature.
Once an animal is your companion, explore the world together, some animals will even help you find treasure, carry items and some are even mountable. Reach new heights and explore new areas with your animal pals.
Choose between a bear, bunny, fox or a cat, (with more characters to come), and personalize each one to fit your unique style through skins, accessories, unique gliders and more. Unlock new character items through questing, treasure hunting, dungeon diving and crafting.
Beautify your farm and shop by placing decorations and furniture to show off to your friends. Keep on the lookout for items with magical properties that can enhance your strength, stamina and more.
To add the items listed above, simply pledge to the tier you would like and add the price to your pledge. You may purchase more than 1 additional copy, you may also mix and match.
If you have already pledged then click "Manage Your Pledge" (or here) and then in "Change your pledge" and add the corresponding amount to your pledge without changing your tier.
When the Kickstarter is done, we will contact you and verify which copies you would like (Switch or Steam).
Bitten Toast Games is a game studio based in British Columbia, Canada. As a studio we've been making games for the past 3 years with titles like "What The Box?" released recently on the Xbox One and "Rocket Fist" which was released last year on the Nintendo Switch.
Our team members are:
Daniel Snd: Lead Programmer / Technical Artist.
Kristina Vandale: Game and Level Developer.
Thiago Adamo: Music and Sound Design.
The game started as something my partner and I wanted to play, but it grew into so much more as we started to share it with other people.
Even in its early stages without optimization it resonated really well with our friends. That's when we decided to focus on this game and open it up to a larger community.
We're hoping to have the support of a community of players to give feedback and help this game reach its full potential. While Kickstarter will help on the financial side, the community aspect is even more important to us.
Our past games included the community but were limited by our reach, we only had a small social media platform stretching across twitter, twitch and facebook. With the help of kickstarter we hope to involve the community more in the development of garden paws.
We are maintaining a Discord server and love to hear any and all feedback from the community.
We began developing this game mid-2018 and has been in a playable state for a little while now. (Some twitch and youtube videos are up with the help of our closed alpha testers.)
With our current build we are ready to receive more players for a closed alpha once Kickstarter concludes.
The game currently has 20+ hours of questing, but the gameplay itself is endless. We plan on adding many more quests in the future but this isn't the focus of the game.
We want to create a game that you can play with your friends and participate in mini-games or explore the world and fight PVE battles. While there will be an extensive quest-line in the final game. This is only one of our many features of Garden Paws.
About the Developers
We started the creation of Garden Paws because we love this genre and wanted to make something we could play together online. Combining multiple game elements we love, we came up with Garden Paws. A game where you run your shop, explore beautiful islands, dive into dungeons to fight evil spirits, and all of this will be multiplayer.
We really enjoy bringing Garden Paws and its world to life and definitely won't stop until it has every feature we want to play in the game.
We have decided to launch the game as an early access release that we can keep working on because there is so much that we want to add. It's current state has 20+ hours of questing and endless game play, but we plan on having even more quests and features.
With the help and support of the Kickstarter community we know we can make a great game together.
Risks and challenges
We're 100% focused on Garden Paws, we not only want to create this game for ourselves but for the community that has shown so much excitement about the project.https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bittentoast/garden-paws-relaxing-multiplayer-rpg-simulation/edit…
While this is our first Kickstarter we have absolutely no hesitations in releasing this game. We have released 5 games in the past and we have no doubt we will be able to release this game as well. While this is more than we usually take on we already have a full playable game with 20+ hours of content that we can send out but we want to make the game more complete before releasing.
With this being a game we have never created before, our biggest challenge is creating something that is tailored towards the community. While we have individually played hundreds of hours of this style of game it is always beneficial hearing what the players want.
We hope Kickstarter will open us up to this audience.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
