About

With no warning at all, an unidentified army of flying vehicles started to attack military bases, strategic geopolitical places and the main cities  around the world; the attack was so well coordinated and unexpected that most of the military forces around the globe where seriously decimated, specially their air force, where the attackers have a definitive advantage.

Reapers Squadron
Reapers Squadron

The Reapers squadron, a group of first class soldiers from the Air Defense branch, are part of the few defenses that survived the first attack, and now, it is payback time!

Equipped with highly classified vehicles with guided lethal surface to air missiles (SAM) and force field shields, it is your mission to protect what it is left and spear head the retaliation force to bring down this unknown enemy.

The air defense battalion, has access to the most amazing weaponry, without the constrains from the air force. Their AM-SAM, Advanced Movil Surface to Air Missile vehicles, can have an immense number of guided missiles and cannons. Moreover the, AM-SAM vehicles are equipped with an experimental force field shield, which provides great endurance during long battles.

 
 

 Arm your AM-SAM with the missiles and cannons that suit best for the mission, each of them has particular range, power and reload times.

 

The AM-SAM can be equipped with different turret launchers, that may fire from one to ten homing missiles simultaneously for the most devastating effect on the enemy army.

 

SAM launchers are also be equipped with AA guns that can handle different type of ammunition and fire continuously and faster than its missile launcher counterpart. There are also multiple types of ammunition that can cause different levels of damage to the enemy air crafts.

 

The game follows the story of  the 53th Air Defense Squadron survivors from the first attack, code named, Reapers; a super secret squadron due their high tech used in their equipment and weaponry, disguised in a training facility, and how they became the world's best chance against the enemy destruction.
As the game progresses, the story is being told through the eyes of a militar engineer that survived to the first attack and found refugee on the 53th Air Defense Squadron base. He narrates  the events and missions while also digging in the background from each character and the events during war.

 

As the player, you are the operator of a AM-SAM, an anti aircraft (AA) vehicle who protects important geopolitical and strategic assets from aerial attacks and an unknown enemy that has air superiority. The battle grounds vary from cities and cities outskirts, to hidden bases in the arctic and dessert, military installations, nuclear energy facilities and many others.

Depending on your performance during battle, you will receive experience points, and, as the game progresses, you unlock new missions, vehicles models and missiles types. However, vehicles and missiles can be only acquired by spending your experience points. Once a vehicle or missile has been acquired it can be selected for usage in the next battle.

The battles are made of one ore more aerial attack waves in which you must destroy all enemy air craft using the best vehicle and weaponry suited for the situation. You win by defeating all the enemies and preventing the destruction or heavy damage to the protected target. Experience points are granted based on the time that it took the player to defeat all the enemies, the shooting accuracy and damage level from the protecting target.

 
 

Air Raid Defense it is a game being developed for the PC and Xbox One, with planned subsequent releases on PS4, Switch, Android and iOS.

Like us on Facebook,
and watch our videos on Youtube

We post game development progression and representative videos every week or sooner.




 The game has been designed to have an achievable scope with some flexibility in order to meet the budget. We are fully committed to bring this game to life, and with your support, any additional money we raise will go straight into the game to have extra features and deployment platforms. Moreover, with our backers support we can shape some aspects of the game into something that is more interested to them and our community.

 

Once funded, Air Raid Defense becomes a priority and a full time job.
This is how we plan to use your generous Kickstarter pledges:

Risks and challenges

Typically, in any project, risks are associated with the combination of a threat and a vulnerability. Risk management it is the mitigation of either the threat, the vulnerability or both, which will lead to an acceptance risk level (aka residual risk). At D12 Magic Studios, we are very aware of all our risk scenarios that can have a negative impact for the development and/or delivery of the final product. However, since they are well recognized they are also being treated accordingly to prevent any negative situation. Thus, it is part of our work and continuous improvement to identify any other risk scenarios before they can possible happen and, develop, deploy and monitor the correct control that will keep any undesirable situation out of bay.

Here are a few samples of the implemented controls:
- Multiple storage backups physical and on the cloud
- Code versioning
- Lead Artists (3D modelers, Animators, Composer, Writer) have a backup artist.
- Second programmer on stand by
- Tasks and features charted in development hours
- Daily burn chart review
- Agile development techniques
- Xtreme Programming techniques.
- Preauthorized and on stand by bank loan.

To make this happen, we want to have a close communication channel with the community and specially our backers, that would help us to understand better the impact and scope of game features that would ultimately translate into a better game with a great replay ability value.
