About this project

The Game

HeXit will be a point-and-click adventure game. We believe that the atmosphere and the visuals of a game of this genre should be as spectacular as possible, so everything in the game will be presented in the form of pre-rendered graphics. We love sci-fi, exciting stories and police procedural television series. What we are trying to achieve is creating a game combining these elements, while focusing on a compelling storyline with twists and exciting adventures. We are trying our best to create a spectacular sci-fi world, which, on the one hand, looks amazing but will also exist as a realistic, richly-detailed and interactive environment in the atmosphere similar to the new Total Recall movie. Several side-stories and detailed in-game world await those who enjoy exploring everything in a game. There will be countless usable items which can be combined. HeXit will also involve several mini-games. There will be English language voice acting for all in-game dialogues.


Synopsis


Police officer Jane Davis unexpectedly finds herself in the middle of a hostage rescue operation conducted by operatives of a classified government agency. The sudden change of events puts sensitive information in her hands she would not have been supposed to see. Her curiosity drives her to start her own investigation. However, it clearly becomes clear that the agency wants to prevent her further involvement in the situation. It becomes obvious to her that if this sensitive material leaks to the general public it will shake the very foundations of society as we know it. A global conglomerate also wants to acquire this information in order to use it for its own purposes. As Jane delves deeper and deeper into the intricate web of conspiracy, she is contacted by the Resistance. This organization also works hard to make the best of the situation. Soon Jane has to decide which of the three sides to join; the government, the conglomerate or the Resistance. How will she use the secrets she is about to reveal? Will she make the right choice? Will she join the right side? Or will she keep everything to herself?


The Episodes


Just like the successful police procedural television series, HeXit is planned as an episodic adventure. If it is possible, we wish to release several installments. Currently, we would like to receive support for the making of the first episode, which will involve 6-10 hours of gameplay.


Why Kickstarter?


We presented our idea to several publishers. Their responses were more or less like 'well, this is a nice and well-crafted idea and demo, but we cannot finance it, because we find that sci-fi themes are not profitable nowadays'. However, we do believe that there is a demand for sci-fi adventure games. What is more, we think that our game would fill a void, and this is the reason why we started the development of HeXit in the first place. If you feel the same way and you are a fan of science-fiction and adventure games, please support our efforts.


The Team


Each member of the team has worked previously as game developers. Some of us have more than 10 years of experience in the computer game industry. We have always been devoted and willing to commit our free time to this profession. The members of the team:

Péter Horváth: designer, visual art. Some of the major projects he worked on: Crysis: Warhead, Warhammer, Terminator 3 ...

Csaba Horváth: coder. His previous works include the programming of several strategy games, such as Police Simulator 1 and 2, Traffic Manager ...

Contractors:

Gyula Borbély: production manager.

Ágnes Staudt: graphics. Her previous projects include Armies of Exigo, Crysis Warhead, Warhammer, Terminator 3 ...

Gyula Pozsgay: graphics. His previous projects include Warhammer, Nadirim, Terminator 3 ...

Please watch our team video with some in-game footage from the current status of the HeXit editor.


The Motivation


We firmly believe that there is a demand for science-fiction adventure games which offer a capturing storyline and a fascinating atmosphere. For months, we used our resources to create a preliminary version of HeXit which we can present to you. Completing the game is not up to us anymore. Now the question is that how detailed and how awesome we can make it, and how much time the development of the game would take. If you allow us to kickstart the project, then completing the game on the highest level of quality would take approximately 8 months. We put the fate of HeXit in your hands.


What do we need the money for?


- designing the visuals of the world divided into locations
- creating and purchasing character models
- creating character animations and purchasing mocap animations
- creating and purchasing 3D objects
- atmospheric cut scene videos
- composing a full soundtrack for the game
- voice actors
- involving a known sci-fi writer
- drawing and writing a comic book that will tell the prelogue of the story
- and of course to create the program code of the HeXit game


Multi-Platform Support (Windows, Linux, MacOs)

There will be a Windows, a Linux and a MacOS version of HeXit if the campaign succeeds. You can choose whichever version you prefer. It will be available in digital and in boxed copies.
