I am bringing a timeless bar dice game into the digital world on iOS. The game needs one last "kick" to make my dream a reality.

About this project

WHAT IS IT?

1-4-24 Dice Game is the most fun dice game you have ever played brought to your phone. Never will you have to trade your license for a dirty dice cup. Play by yourself, play with your friends on the same device, place against someone over bluetooth, and the best piece: play against anyone, anywhere with game center multiplayer. This feature is still being developed. The success of Dice with buddies, Words with friends and Draw something are all based around this same turn based game play. Come check out the next biggest turn based smash hit!

Without your help this is a kinda cool game - more like the version already for sale on the appstore called Midnite 1-4-24. But why be mediocre? Help me become great, and make yourself feel great at the same time.

PRIOR SUCCESS 

I have released 27 titles since April of last year which have received 60,000+ downloads.  At first, I only used free platforms to make very simple apps. With this basic model, I turned the $99 apple developer fee into $12,000 in less than a month, despite minimal use of html and css programming.  

Since then I have invested in more rich and robust apps by outsourcing much of the development . This has also allowed me to employ more interesting monetization models, which I believe is key in this business.

BACKSTORY

So I moved away from more simple apps and made my first game called 1-4-24, or Midnight - a classic bar game!  I have taken a fun, interactive game that my friend and former co-worker, Sam Lam, taught me and turned it into a beautiful looking iPhone app. 1-4-24  is designed as a multiplayer Game Center game, with achievements and leaderboards. It works great and looks phenomenal. I have also included In-App purchases which will allow users to increase In-App currency and to customize the appearance of the game. 

HOW YOU WILL HELP

The game is basically ready to go, except for one aspect. Currently, the multiplayer element is not optimal; it works like an old-school 8 bit game. As a result, when you play, you have to watch everything your opponent is doing.  Thus, you cannot have multiple concurrent games with friends.

I am working to change this!  My goal is to have the game flow more easily, and allow multiple concurrent games to be played (as in Words With Friends or Draw Something).  This change in flow will dramatically enhance gameplay and will keep you and your friends coming back for more!

WHERE THE FUNDS WILL GO

1) Allow me to change the game from the old-school multiplayer style to a new turn-based multiplayer interface that allows users to have multiple active games.  Once that is successfully completed, I will work to add new features that people suggest.

2) Pay server, bandwidth, hardware, and other day-to-day costs. These costs will increase as more people start using 1-4-24. Furthermore, if there is sufficient demand on iOS, I’d like to also bring it to the Android platform which will require more time & $$.

3) Fund the second phase of development. This includes adding bottoms, adding android, marketing efforts and adding open feint. Build a team dedicated to helping update and maintain the app.
