Top Caster Emote Wars!

$3,135

67

Top Caster: Emoji Wars is a fun and entertaining game using many of the well known emojis from Twitch TV. The game features an incredible easy to use interface, and it looks great. There’s already some great casters who have joined in to this project, and agreed so we can use their emotes in the game. In return their twitch is featured when people play with their emotes. Some casters worth mentioning: Lirik, SodaPoppin, ManVsGame, Brotatoe, Thundercast, CohhCarnage, Ellohime and more!

The game: 2 emojis, one from each side moves in towards center. Your job is to decide which is bigger and tap his side to initiate a jump from the big guy. The little emoji can’t jump high enough to clear the other one, and the face slams together.  The game bases upon reaction time, fast decision making and timing.  You’ll keep playing as long as you keep the emojis from colliding.

A full-time multi-person team working to polish and release the game live.  

Features still to be implemented:

  • Leaderboards
  • Unlockables
  • Achievements

Mobile release (Android / iOS)

  • Google Play
  • Amazon Appstore
  • Apple App Store
  • Weapons!
  • Stats, presented in a CCG layout!  (see below)
  • At $3000, Windows Mobile support!

 

We want to use this game as a vehicle to promote any viewers favorite streams and streamers, and to celebrate the fun we have on Twitch by playing together.  We develop this project daily live on Twitch, and have been streaming game development nearing 2 years.  We organized and hosted the Game Development Channel Panel at TwitchCon 2015, and the mystery game at Awesome Games Done Quick 2014. We want to use this mobile version of Top Caster to springboard the launch of the mega full Award-Winning Steam desktop version and build awareness for the cause.  Bonozo Apps was founded by video game veteran Matt Harmon.

Risks and challenges

We are expecting a large turnout of players for this game based on initial focus tests from our Twitch stream. The challenge here is for the backend servers to handle the load. We will overcome this obstacle by selecting the best scalable provider.

Another risk is the rights of the emote artwork. We have received approval for many, verbally and signed. We overcome this obstacle by continuing to reach out and show the value of being involved in this project.
