About


Robert McSheffrey, Founder at ChefDog Studios
Robert McSheffrey, Founder at ChefDog Studios

Hello, My name is Robert McSheffrey. I am a game designer looking to publish my very first, full scale video game. I started this project in February of 2019, and have so far made leaps and bounds in its development. I still have several months of designing, coding, and artwork to do, and I need your help to make it all happen. The game will be developed on Unity and I aim to make it available on mobile platforms.



The original goal for Ball vs. Everything was to produce a portfolio worthy game that would get me noticed by a reputable expert in the industry. That would lead to a job, and salary, and benefits. But, as awesome as it would be to work for a major studio and work on my favorite franchises like Super Mario and Halo, it would be exponentially better to open my own studio and lead the charge into the future of gaming.

With just 750 ten-dollar pledges, I'll be able to take some time off Uber Driving and dedicate more hours on my project. If the project really takes off, I'll be able to  hire another designer and an artist to bring my game to life.

Everyone who pledges will receive a code to download the entire game, ad-free. For those who donate 5 or 10 dollars, the code will also unlock the promised rewards. The video mentions XBOX, PlayStation, and Switch. I need to reach out to those platforms for a dev kit. I promise to try to release the game on the major consoles, but I cannot guarantee that at this time.

Risks and challenges

Risks: I am the sole creator and designer at this time. I am aiming to create a 10 world main campaign and an endless mode. It's taken me just three weeks time to develop the assets seen in the introduction. I am confident I can finish this on my own.

Challenges: Two jobs and school work. These are schedule issues to work around. I am studying game design online with Full Sail University. Again, if the funding goals are reached, I'll be able to cut back on Uber Driving and dedicate more time to making the game.
