About

Kritter World is an action role-playing game inspired by Pokemon and The Legend of Zelda series in development for Windows PC (with a stretch goal for Mac). 

You control a nameless hero as they embark on an epic quest to collect 100 Golden Hearts that have been scattered across the world. Along the way you'll engage in real time battles against other Kritters. Utilize your skills to catch Kritters with the Kritter Klaw! Solve puzzles using the unique abilities of your Kritters! Make new friends! Eat a cookie!

Explore to your Heart's content! There isn't a linear path to completion in Kritter World. You'll start your adventure in Trope Town, a safe haven for all your Kritter needs. Upon adopting your first of 50 unique Kritters, you'll be able to use your Kritter's special abilities to explore more of the town and venture off into unique and themed lands.

Say Hello to the Kritters!

Kritter World will have a variety of Kritter types at your disposal such as Fire, Water, and Flora. Additional types include Magic, Wind, Ice, Electric, Mineral, Ghoul, Light, and Robot! Each type match-up has slight advantages and disadvantages against other Kritter types. Feed your Kritters in the overworld to nurse them back to health. Just be careful that Wild Kritters don't eat your food first!

Use your Kritter's abilities to interact with objects in the overworld. Cooperate with your Kritter partner to overcome obstacles and to solve puzzles. Each Kritter type has a unique ability at their disposal. You will also be able to combine their powers to create new and interesting interactions!

And many more abilities are available in the game!

Initiate a battle by encountering a calm Wild Kritter! This in-depth battle system is carefully designed for newcomers to enjoy and for hardcore players to master. Combat takes place in real-time on a 2D grid. During battle, you'll have 4 actions at your disposal: Move, Attack, Block, and Trap. Each action has an associated cost that will slowly drain your Kritter's stamina. But don't worry, your Kritter will recover stamina over time. However, if you overwork your Kritter and exhaust its stamina completely, it'll be unable to move until it fully recovers all of its stamina, so be careful and strategic when battling!

The main action, Attack, will spawn an attack with varying properties. Just to name a few properties, you'll be able to push your foes away, pull them closer, or immobilize them for a short time. Attacks have typing which can cause more or less damage depending on Kritter advantages. To stave off oncoming attacks, you'll need to Block

Blocks come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Each block will have varying amount of HP that it can sustain before falling apart. Blocks can have types too (but only carry disadvantages towards other types) and generally carry a unique attribute such as the ability to shift or reflect attacks, explode, or even become a turret. It's never a bad idea to play defensively.

As the final piece to the puzzle, Traps are the most advanced and trickiest actions to pull off. When placed, traps will be invisible to everyone on the field, so it'll be up to you to remember where they are. You'll trigger the trap by stepping onto it. Traps can cause large amounts of damage, spawn attacks, cast a longer immobilization status, shift a Kritter onto an adjacent space, or even drain large amounts of stamina. These are great for getting a particularly aggressive Kritter off your tail. 

Uh oh!

 Funding

Majority of the funds raised from this Kickstarter will go into creating new assets for the game including sprites, animations, tilesets, sound effects, and music. Additionally, those funds will also cover processing fees, taxes, and the physical rewards. 

Funds leftover (if any) will go into polishing the game and perhaps extend the Kritter Universe beyond this game. 

Risks and challenges

As with many other video game projects funded through Kickstarter, my main concern is being able to finish the game in a timely manner with all the necessary polish my supporters are entitled to. The style of the game is intentionally simple and will retain that look regardless of the amount of funding in order to maintain the scope of the game. I believe I have given myself enough time to produce the game completely. I also promise to be fully transparent about the state of the game.

As of now, the greatest challenge facing this project is producing a quality soundtrack. I intend on using the funds from this Kickstarter to collaborate with a music composer to produce music for the game. If the Kickstarter is a success, I will update my supporters regarding the state of this challenge.
