ABOUT THE GAME

Piye Chronicles will be an exciting, classic side-scrolling action game for iOS & Android mobile platforms. it will feature characters from the indie comic series and graphic novel, Chronicles of Piye. You will play the character Piye, fighting your way through hordes of demon warriors in a quest to obtain the ancient artifact, the Amulet of Fire. In this initial version there will be  4 levels,  which will have their own environments,  evil henchmen and a powerful villains at the end of each level who will have to be defeated before you advance. Piye's weapon will be his trusted sword, Amitti, The Soul Devourer which can be used to block enemy assaults and aunch cool attacks against the bad guys.

Chronicles of Piye  fans have been clamouring for a mobile game, so we  decided to develop a game for mobile platforms called Piye Chronicles. Set in the exotic environment of the ancient, African kingdom of Kerma. This one of a kind mobile game will deliver lots of thrills, excitement  and a unique gaming experience.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

It's not easy for small company to market their first game into a competitive gaming market. Chronicles of Piye was our first collaborative effort and although it belonged to a sub-genre of comics produced by a small, relatively unknown media company, we were able to raise its profile among North American and international manga/comic fans. For example, we've recently had the comic series ordered by the Langston Hughes Community Library and Cultural Center in New York and are currently having the comics reviewed by a publisher in South America for Spanish translations of the Chronicles of Piye comics and graphic novels. This was as much a result of the quality and originality of Chronicles of Piye as it was the creativity of our marketing efforts. The comics and graphic novel are can be bought in the print version, or as a digital download and is also available for Amazon Kindle.
The comic and recently released graphic novel has attracted over 129,000 fans from around the world on its Facebook Fan Page. The comics have been translated into Spanish with the Spanish version of Chapter 1 already being available for sale and Spanish versions other 3 chapters be available shortly. There are also plans for the graphic novel to be translated into Spanish as well. This was done with a fairly modest advertising budget. Even though there will be obstacles in getting exposure for the Piye Chronicles mobile game in the competitive gaming industry, we feel that we will be able to use social media to our advantage our extensive network of fans. On our Facebook Fan Page we've had numerous requests to create a game for the comic series. Our team is small and works out of a virtual office with myself, Chris and Ian living in Toronto, Canada, Nashville, USA and Nairobi, Kenya respectively. However, despite the distance separating us, we've managed to meet all of the challenges that have come our way. We will be doing most of the work for the mobile game, in-house and only require the funds to hire a competent programmer to make it happen. We promise you, the Piye Chronicles mobile game will be as fun and exciting as possible with the limited budget that we have at our disposal. Thanks in advance for your funding assistance and/or for taking the time to review our Kickstarter project.

  • As a startup operation, we've incurred a lot of costs in producing our first comic series and graphic novel such as press releases, marketing, language translations, etc., and since we received many requests to develop a Piye Chronicles game, we decided that it would be better to develop a game now, rather than later, so we turned to crowd funding to help fund the development of the . Kemstar Media is directly involved in the building of the game but we will need to contract the services of an experienced game programmer which is what the bulk of our funding request is for. What little is left will be allocated to, advertising and marketing, not to mention the Kickstarter rewards themselves. .
