The House of Da Vinci

£43,600

2,391

 

 

We've completed our epic Kickstarter campaign with flying colors reaching our stretch goal: the extra bonus level. This level will also be available to everyone who pre-orders the game.

 

 

This amazingly detailed, historically accurate storyline lets you enter The House of Da Vinci, explore his world, and; try to discover what caused him to disappear — while you reveal his brand new invention.

You’ll experience siege machines, secret passages, complex lockboxes hidden far beyond where any eye can see. Explore Leonardo’s investigations into anatomy, architecture, even flying machines!

You’ll encounter mechanical puzzles, brain twisters and various baffling riddles, all based on Da Vinci's actual historic inventions and concepts. With its intuitive single-touch control, playing the game couldn’t be any easier.

 

Since entering his workshop, you’ve quickly become one of Da Vinci‘s most promising students. But today, you find yourself searching throughout his house, becoming increasingly alarmed. Where is the Master this fine day? He should already be here, inspecting your latest project, instructing, criticizing. Instead, the workshop is totally empty. A tingling sensation begins to run up and down your spine. Something isn’t right. What happened here? You must escape Da Vinci's workshop to learn the truth.

 

One thing is certain: Your master, the great genius Leonardo da Vinci, has disappeared. But where, exactly, has he gone? Has one of his amazing inventions gone haywire? Or are shadowy assassins from the Church responsible? You’ll need all your wits, and all the skills you’ve learned from the Master, to learn what really happened.

You will dive into the exact time and world Da Vinci himself inhabited. Explore Da Vinci’s house, vividly and breathtakingly re-imagined. Navigate through his workshop, examine his anatomical and architectural models, escape from rooms you find yourself trapped in, and solve riddles, mechanisms and puzzles inspired by Da Vinci’s actual inventions and concepts, brought to stunning life.

The House of Da Vinci delivers incredible authenticity in every detail: the Master’s inventions, concepts, even the music, architecture and atmosphere are re-created perfectly.

We’re a new puzzle game studio with amazing people, proven technology and attention to details. Our games focus on powerful storytelling and unique features to keep you, the player, having fun and coming back for more. And our newest project, The House of Da Vinci is something very dear to us: we've taken on the challenge to move you, our players and backers, back in time to the Master’s world: the amazing Florence of 1506. We invite you to experience our re-imagined Da Vinci’s workshop first-hand, and to discover his constructs and inventions while solving puzzles, looking for hidden mechanisms, manipulating sound waves, and even time itself. So, why are we using Kickstarter and why should you back The House of Da Vinci?

We’re a really small team of dedicated people, determined to approach multi-platform games in a different way: we want to provide our players a game environment rich in details, we want to submerge them into an amazingly realistic atmosphere, we want to set your brain ablaze trying to solve complex puzzles and mechanisms - and most of all, we want you to have fun.

We believe in the highest quality art and to put it as simply as possible: art is expensive! And it takes a lot of time to produce with the quality we demand. We’ve already devoted hundreds of hours of our free time and resources to get this far: but without Kickstarter funding, it’s going to take us far longer to finish House of Da Vinci. Let’s cross the finish line together!

We‘re a small group of game-loving designers who’ve worked together on games of every kind – from casual play to intense strategic war games – but always with one goal: to create something really unique. This is who we are:

 

We want to take you, our players and backers, back in time to experience the incredible world of Leonardo da Vinci through ingenious and complex puzzles. We’ve already devoted countless hours to get this far, but we need your help to finish the game. We believe that our experience, passion and devotion to this project, and to Leonardo’s legacy, will help you decide to back us. We want you to be a part of the creative process. We want so much to finish the extra levels, you can’t even imagine!

Original Sountrack - enjoy our musical composition that will accompany you during your adventures in Florence. These six original tracks are exclusive to our Kickstarter campaign and will not be available after the campaign ends.

The House of Da Vinci T-shirt - Suit up and show your support for our project among your friends and strangers on the street! Instagram yourself in your brand new attire and #isupportthehouseofdavinci. Yep, we’re kidding, we just want you to enjoy the t-shirt!

Signed print edition of our art book - Are you curious about the beginnings of the House of Da Vinci? Or maybe you enjoy quality art? Our Kickstarter exclusive signed print edition art book will take you by the hand through our art gallery in great detail. Maybe you’ll find a piece of art you’ve missed while playing the game?

 

Right now, The House of Da Vinci is about 50 % completed. By reaching our first goal, we’ll be able to deliver the game in presented quality and timeframe. See our table below to get an idea why we need exactly this amount to accomplish this.

If you like what you see on our campaign page, help us by spreading the word. If we can manage to reach this stretch goal, we’ll work even harder, and reward all you players who made pledges with an extra, super-difficult game level that will test your skills in solving riddles and getting Da Vinci’s inventions and mechanisms to work!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

Being a small team of dedicated game designers and passionate gamers, we believe that we’ve already shown you, our backers, that we’re experienced enough to see this project through. Even with our very limited self-funding we’ve been able to do a significant amount of work. That’s why we showed you actual gameplay in our Kickstarter video. We’re very confident that we’ll be able to deliver this amazing experience of Leonardo’s world for you to enjoy.
