About

Welcome to the Beef Kickstarter page!

Beef is a first-person survival horror/puzzle game for the PC, Mac and Linux platforms. You play as Beef, the mutant, hormonally-induced cow who grows the ability to walk and gain a sense of awareness. The gameplay involves you, the player, to navigate through the levels as Beef while avoiding getting into the hands of Meatjoy, the Butcher. Beef also makes it her goal to rescue her cow companions that are also trapped in different areas of the slaughterhouse. Players may even experience hardship along the way, but we'll save those details for later. There will be puzzles and thinking involved to get through the horrendous slaughterhouse and on your way to grassy freedom.

Entering through the barn doors of DOOM.

BUT, as much as the game is scary, it's our goal to add a bit of humour to it to liven up the game and create a unique experience. This will include having the Butcher yell out his quotes when you get closer that will make you laugh and run for your life.

Inspirations for this game include video games such as Slender, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, and PETA videos (sadface).

Just like in horror games, you aim to avoid Meatjoy at ALL costs as Beef does not carry any weapons. He will be popping out of nowhere and sometimes be roaming around the slaughterhouse, looking out to come and get you.

You can hear chainsaws revving...wonder what that Butcher's up to..

The game is currently at an alpha stage and is OPEN TO SUGGESTIONS. You may contact us with the information provided at the very bottom of this page! We'd be happy to hear feedback, suggestions, and comments!

STAY TUNED FOR CONCEPT ART UPDATES!

Beef was not always Beef. She started off as an ordinary cow, ready to become a victim of another cheeseburger meal until the hormone that she induces begins to mutate her, giving her the ability to walk and gain a sense of awareness of her surroundings. (It also gives her a pair of bodacious breasts and causes her eye to go a bit derpy, ahem, anyways..) Dazed and confused, she notices a label tag with 'Beef' written on it. She soon dubs herself -- Beef.

Get 'em, Beef!
Get 'em, Beef!

As she tries to find her way out of this hellhole, she hears other cows crying (or mooing..) for help. She makes it her goal to rescue the cows in need. I mean...she used to graze with these cows. They had good times together. However, along the way, Beef notices this isn't going to be easy. Not with that gruesome, terrifying sack of life that shouldn't even be considered human -- Meatjoy, the Butcher.

Ugh..
Ugh..

Responsible for many of your friends' deaths, Meatjoy is on the hunt for that "mutant slab of BEEF", in other words, you.

So...you decide..

Will Beef make it out of there alive?

So we love the idea and we want to release this game to the public.

But oh noes -- there are some barriers that aren't allowing us to do so!

That's right: time and money.

Currently, Fancy Dino is newly established and still very tiny. With the help of our backers, we can use the money to gain the resources required to make the game faster and release it to you guys as soon as possible!

Part-time jobs...supporting loved ones...they all play a major role in trying to finish a game that you want to put your heart and soul into. So with the help of YOU awesome folks, this can finally be possible!

WE WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU!

Risks and challenges

Currently, there is just an alpha version of the game and the only thing facing our way? But of course, TIME and MONEY.

Fancy Dino is newly established and will be adding on to the team as we go on. Now, the main reason we need the funds is to dedicate our ENTIRE time, while supporting ourselves, to RELEASE the game to you as SOON as POSSIBLE!

Now it's our goal to work to the bone for this game for everyone to enjoy and with the help of our backers, the game will be released sooner for everyone's enjoyment.

It's our goal for our backers to enjoy this game and helping our vision come to life.
