Clyde's Adventure Reborn is the rebirth of a classic puzzle platformer DOS game called Clyde's Adventure. Eight months ago I set out to recreate a classic DOS game called Clyde's Adventure. This is a game that I have many fond memories of and one of the major inspirations to the person I have become. I want to recreate that experience for others to enjoy.
Clyde's Adventure Reborn will feature all 32 castles from the classic DOS game and include many more. It's main features are the level editor and online sharing mechanics. In Clyde's Adventure Reborn gamers will be able to create their own castles from scratch and submit them online to share with their friends.
This online 'library' of castles will feature a rating system both by castle author and by individual castles. I believe with this system in place gamers will be able to get on the game and be playing new, fun castles often. This will give the game great replay value (something the original title lacked).
The game is currently 90% complete. I have funded the creation of the project out of pocket thus far and need help for this final push to get it out! That's where you come in. You can donate to the LAUNCH of Clyde's Adventure Reborn and choose from many great rewards! Any donation of $5 or more will, of course, also land you a copy of the game upon completion!

Risks and challenges
The main risks have been my own lifestyle. I've had to sacrifice quite a bit to make this project come as far as it has - Last October I quit my job as a Software Engineer to start my dream of becoming and Indie Game Developer. I started a company, DigiYolk, and started up Clyde's Adventure Reborn. However, I soon realized what a large undertaking this was, and just how unprepared for it I was. I started back at work part-time as an internal software engineer and have been doing that to pay the bills while I continue to work on the game. I am so close!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
