About

We are a dedicated group of coders, artists, story writers and much more but most importantly good friends who have a strong passion for games and game design.  We all have banded under the business 'Wildcard Studios'. You can find us through a number of social avenues and website.  We are also official licensed developers for Nintendo's Wii-U Platform.

World of music is a 3D Platformer game where you play the roles of two important characters. One is Christi Sharp, a mute with dreams and ambitions on one day becoming the lead of her own troupe.  And Leene Flat who is Christi's best friend and strategist in all things puzzles.

World of Music is a game that is set to launch on the following platforms:

  • Wii-U  (We already have a dev kit and Licensed Nintendo Wii-U Devs)
  • OUYA
  • PC, Mac and Linux. 
  • Android and IOS Variant
  • Possibly a PS4 and Xbox One Port (Depends on the funding)

The game is set in a bright and colorful universe where everything and anything is based on 'Music'.  You have our hero (Christi Sharp) who is a born mute and her best friend (Leene Flat) who specializes in solving puzzles and who is the social butterfly.

Christi Sharp - Born Mute but a softie at heart. Christi is fairly strong. She helps the native locals with their day to day tasks. while mute she makes up for her lack of voice with a very calm sense of compassion

Without spoiling everything the gameplay features Voice Overs and some ingame movies (FMV). A tragic event happens that threatens the world of A'Capella and it is up to our heroines to piece everything back together before it's too late. Offering the player some RPG Elements

Leene Flat is Christi's best friend. They've been helping eachother since they were babies.  Leene is modest and straightforward. but would do anything to help her friends.

 The game play is a 3D Platformer which is multiplayer co-op of 2 players in the campaign. You play as Christi Sharp who specializes in combat and Leene Flat who can manipulate puzzles items and the environment. Combine the two and you have an awesome duo

We want World of Music to have a engaging but fun soundtrack. Ranging from orchestra to all kinds of music suiting the various parts of A'Capella the Island. 

With funding we can purchase or even hire musicians to apply their best to World of Music.

Sample Track from World of Music:

 The A'Capellian Annual Musical Fair Theme

 A'Capella Traveling the Isle 

Sailing the Island Skies

- Created by Matthew Pablo

 Some from the Wii-U and OUYA platform.

World of Music has a lot of environments. These environments are just whats in the BETA. 

Another of the Isle of A'Capella. This is one of the first levels you encounter that will teach you how to play. ranging from platform jumping to manipulating your environment.

Your goal in the game is to collect 50 Master Notes to repair the barrier that has been destroyed by the main evil villain in the game. 

 In certain levels. You have to work together (Co-Op or Single player tag team) to tackle some gruesome puzzles. Some very easy. other requiring lots of thinking.

  • Access various parts of the island by unlocking them. To unlock them you need to collect various amounts of Master Notes. 

    Our influences are games like 'Jack and Daxter' and 'Mario 64' that focus on teamwork and puzzle solving. 

    Simply put, Our project is about 60% done as of 6/25/2014. Lots of MoCap animations, items, game materials have been created by our team but in order to speed up the process of things. We would like to commission a lot of talented Deviant Artists to work on the artwork, 3D Models and much more. 

    We also would either like to purchase rights to use music in our game And/Or hire musician(s) to complete the World of Music soundtrack.

    As of current. A lot of our content has been commissioned by various artists.  

    We have our base story line done as well as a intro and a few game play levels done. We are in our current beta period and definitely need the funding to pay the team. As of current I (Christopher Vann) have been paying everyone out of pocket a portion of what I make at my work job to get this project completed.


    Here is how we plan to spend the raised funds :

    As you can see, Most of the funding will go towards creating assets for 3D Materials such as Bosses, baddies, items, bonus materials, NPC Characters and much more.

    3D Materials also include texturing, optimizing shaders for various systems such as Wii-U and OUYA Game system.

    By supporting us. You not only get a completed project but any supporter of the project here will earn you some cool items too! 

    Community Hopes

    We love games, However what I noticed is a lot of games that are too... how shall we say 'rough and tough' but not enough games that are bright and easy enough kids can pick up on it and enjoy a decent story.  Without all the swearing and blood/gore.  

    World of Music is our gift to the gaming community in hopes we see more projects like this. 

    Here is some of the snippets that will be in the artbook:

    The World of Music Book will have a ton of pages that show the storyline in written form that doubles as a sort of 'Manga' inside. Content included:
    • 10 Page Manga
    • Written Game Storyline
    • 2D Artwork
    • 3D Concept Art and Workflow
    • 3D Renders of various locations of the Isle

    Challenges

    World of Music has overcame a lot of challenges being from resources to primarily funding. We've manage to come very far and will see it to the end. The only hurdle that could slow us down would be funding.  

    We would love to have a lot more content ingame if we had the funding. without it. we would only be stuck with the bare minimum of a game.

    There is plans for a Multiplayer style 4 player co-op mini-campaigns but without funding it may get cut as it would eat into development time.

    Other Ways You Can Help

    I know a lot of you cannot donate and thats fine! We ask that you share the word of our game on your social media (Facebook, Tumbler, twitter, etc).

    World of Music originally started out as a OUYA project but branched out to many platforms. We want to help keep the OUYA project alive with support from the Free the Games fund Also supporting project MOJO/ OUYA Everywhere.  Giving them 3-4 month exclusivity at a much more affordable purchase price point for you. the players.  Support us! For them to successfully help us out we would need minimum $10,000. This is our stretch goal

They will match the funds that we raise if we make our kickstarter. that means more money can be allocated towards special game modes for the OUYA and even a competition mode for 4 players. 

Our Kickstarter is open to all suggestions. Want to see something added? Comment above!

Risks and challenges

There are always risks and challenges. I dont have a problem addressing them head on. If down the road a developer decides to work on another project. I'll search for others but in the meantime pick up the slack. if it means working double shifts then so be it. Dedication and production is what means the most to me in terms of project management.

I've worked on this project solo for about 8 months straight, I've managed to get thus far with the project. i believe there will be no setbacks that can cause me to not finish this project. Believe me. Your backed funds will goto creative hands to get every ounce of the project finished.

Our projects are backed up on a consistent basis so no lost time occurs or setbacks. As of current we believe in a one project one team mission. We dont split our teams to work on other projects. All focus is on one game. World of Music.

    You also get reward #7 abilities on creating a boss / monster or hero character.

    But more important is the special build of the game where we build a 'splash screen' of your choice in the beginning of the game before it starts.

    This could be used for your business as a contributor or just personal as a gift for a friend/wife/husband/girlfriend. (Nothing offensive of course)

    It would have your image then overlaid 'Kickstarter Contributor...'

    The copy would then be yours to keep. Keep hold of it however. We wont have copies of it.

    The special build will be built to have your name in the beginning indicating your own special copy.
