About

Black Cat must train and join up with his friends to defeat the tyrannical Ruffus, who is wreaking havoc on the land!

Black Cat's Story is an off-kilter action adventure game which focuses on the story of Black Cat, whom takes upon the quest to avenge the fallen victims of a psychotic killer named Ruffus. Black Cat's story is a combination of both story telling, and turn based combat, borrowed from popular games such as Final Fantasy and Pokemon.

Black Cat's Story is a humor-filled venture, featuring a diversity of off-the-wall characters, settings, and events. Throughout the game, Black Cat is able to join forces with his friends, acquire new weapons, armors and items, and uncover a marvel of secrets.

Features*

  • Beautiful handcrafted original pixel-art graphics.
  • Incredible non-repetitive high quality music and sound effects.
  • Astonishing game-play and life-like combat mechanics.
  •  A gripping storyline which will immerse you start to finish.
  • Limitless events and characters to interact with.
  • A seamless open world to explore, where your choices influence the storyline.

Reviews*

  • IGN: "Unbelievable, it's Skyrim on steroids!"
  • Gametrailers: "11/10, a must play for all ages"
  • Metacritic: "Easily one of the best games of this generation!"

Why Kickstarter?

Black Cat's Story is what I'm hoping will be the first of many. With some funding, I'm hoping to start a franchise and get a small following of interest. I've already got a lot of ideas, currently the major problem is time. 

A small amount of funding will help pay for basic costs such as website hosting, RPG Maker/software subscription, and allow me to spend more time working on the game. Plus I'm a poor university student who can't really afford to be making games when I need to be working.

Pledge Rewards

NOTE: All pledges entitle you to a digital copy of the game as soon as it's released. The game will be freeware, so once funded, the game will be finished and released for free. Thank you to all backers who will make this possible.

All pledges $30 and above will receive a personalized email from Black Cat, a comic, a Black Cat drinking card game .PDF, the latest in-game fashion accessories, and an invite to beta testing, an OST, game .PDF, and credit in-game. All backers who chose a reward to get a character or place designed by them will be contacted if funding is successful, and will be collaborated with to develop their idea in-game to their liking (to our approval).

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges involved will be few. If successfully funded, the major commitments required will be to communicating and collaborating with backers to develop their characters and other pledge goals in-game.

I've already designed the game and released a demo as a taste of what's to come, however the main requirement for funding is so that I can afford to work on the game and finish it when I otherwise am finishing at university, and working.
