We are really excited to announce that we are making our first Iphone game, Taboo Tyke. The game is about a really cute toddler named, Tyler who just like many other toddlers, loves to explore. Well Tyler sees everything as fun and exciting and is determined to check it all out but as we all know, babies can get themselves in trouble because they do not know what dangers lay ahead. Since Tyler is way to clever to get held back by playpens and child safety locks, little baby Tyler gets free and sets off to explore the world but he has the knack to find the worst spots. What could be more dangerous to a little tyke than an active construction zone with heavy equipment, cranes, holes and various tools accidentally being dropped all the time. OR how about a jungle zone that has crazy monkeys, bottomless pits and falling trees. Other dangerous zones that our Taboo Tyke encounters is a robot factory, graveyard, war zones and more. Tyler, our happy toddler, is out and about and it’s the players job to keep him safe from harm. Can you do it? Will you help baby Tyler?
Well, that is the concept of the game. It is an idea that I thought up a few years ago but never even tried working on it. Well during a slow period, I decided it was time to make a go at this. So far, we’ve done some really cool things but since it is our very first Iphone game, we made some amazing progress with the graphics and function but we spent way too much time making mistakes and learning the do’s and don’ts of game development. The development process has already gone way over a year now and I need to ready to really put this project in high gear and get it done or else I’m afraid it may never get completed. That’s why I need your help.
We are asking for a pledge of $12,000 to help us fund the last stage of development for the game. The funds will allow us to put more programmers on the project and develop all the digital assets needed to make this game a huge success. I hope you can help us make this game a reality. We’ve worked really long a hard so far on the game and need your help to finish it.
Currently, we about 70% done with the game. We've finally completed level one and all the necessities involved with it. Next, we need to build more level, develop more graphics and integrate social media features. There are also a bunch of other features we'd like to include in the game but on a very tight budget, we may skip them for now and hope to integrate the features in the future if we are funded.
For anyone that pledges $5, we give you a big thank you for supporting our project as well as get full access to the game when it is complete.
For people that pledge $10, you get the Taboo Tyke Backer pin, list your name as an official supporter on the game and website as well as get full access to the game when it is complete.
Anyone that pledges $15 will get the Taboo Tyke Sticker, their name listed as an official supporter and full access to the game when it is complete.
Our backers that pledge $25 will get a Taboo Tyke Original Framed Picture celebrating your support for the game, special mention on the game and website and full access to the completed game. Our $40 backers will get the official Taboo Tyke Backer t-shirt only available to Kickstarter Backers. Additionally, you also get special mention on the game and website and full access when the game launches.
A generous pledge of $75 gets you the official Taboo Tyke Pin, Sticker, Backer T-Shirt, the special thank you and again full access to the completed game.
Those looking to really support the project with a $200 pledge can get themselves (or their child) right into the game. For this prize, we will take a supplied photo and create a vector illustration which we will include right in the graphics of the game.
The $500 pledge is perfect for companies wishing to support the project and get advertising at the time. We will place your logo in several strategically located places in the game. Additionally, you get all prizes previously mentioned.
The ultimate pledge of $1000 will really help our project tremendously. For this level of support, we will work with you to create a totally new level. You will be involved in the concept, naming, design, function and flow of the zone. Additionally, you also get your face in the new zone, framed art, t-shirt and listing as a major sponsor on both our game and websites. We really need your help to complete Taboo Tyke.
If you like our project, just pledge at least $5 or $10. If you think the game concept it really cute and deserves a chance to be successful, please consider pledging $15, $25 or $40. Pledges beyond these levels really give you a chance to help make Taboo Tyke your own. For everyone that makes a pledge, thank you so much!
Getting overfunded would really be amazing. I've personally funded the project for over 18 months now and the extra funds will go towards my mounting credit card bills but also to really take the game to whole new level I thought wasn't possible unless it was properly funded. NEW Overfunded Features would include:
- Choose your Baby. We would create 4-6 different babies to allow the player to choose the gender and ethnicity of the baby.
- New challenges and unique worlds.
- Tons of new levels, obstacles and even friends for our Taboo Tyke.

Risks and challenges
At this point, we are confident that we are able to complete the game. Getting funding will allow us to do it a lot sooner than if we did not have funding. Although we are confident, it is our first time to build an app/game for any platform so we not familiar with all the processes needed but we've researched all requirements and feel we have a solid understanding of what is needed and how to achieve it.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
