About this project
lil' Sherman is a mobile game being developed for Android and iOS. It blends a fun visual style, strategic gameplay and an engaging storyline. It is a familiar tale of an undersized steel hero that proves with hard work and determination anyone can shine, regardless of size.
In the game, one plays as a WWII tank that must protect its Command Center and the incoming convoy of supplies. What makes lil’ Sherman stand out among other mobile games is that it incorporates a tower defense style but is also a third person shooter. This game is being developed with a cartoon feel which makes it enjoyable for all ages and has a massive weapon and vehicle upgrade system for the diehard gamers. We are developing lil’ Sherman with the Unity 3D game engine, this allows us to push the boundaries of what’s possible for a mobile game and also gives it a richer environment compared to flat 2D "side scroller" games typical of mobile devices.

Why should I fund?
