KING'S LEAGUE

http://thekingsleague.com

An interesting blend of time management, resource management, and RPG elements, King’s League: Odyssey is a charming little addition to anyone’s gaming collection. - Appsmile

It's insanely addictive, requires a lot of strategizing and planning, and is quite a challenge. It also contains just the right amount of micromanagement without being to overbearing on the player.- Christine Chan, AppAdvice

A light game with a refreshing take on battles, The King’s League is a management strategy game that provides players with unique classes to build an army of their preference. With that army, they will battle in the league to conquer territories, complete quests and fight to the top!

Responding to the enthusiastic response for The King's League, a follow up named King's League: Odyssey was released. Both the browser and mobile versions have received various awards:  

  • IGF China 2014 – Best Game 
  • Casual Connect Asia 2014 Indie Prize – Best Mobile Game 
  • Touch Arcade – Game of the Week 
  • Armor Games – Best Action Game of 2013 
  • FGL – Ninja Awards 2013 – Best Strategy Game
  • Kongregate – Game of the Month (Apr 2013)

WHY CONTRIBUTE?

This campaign would be a great opportunity for the youths to have their performed music be recorded live, and implemented into a video game!

  • When composing, Francesco D’Andrea will keep in mind to cater to the skillsets of the MYSO youths.
  • He will also be conducting an exclusive Skype session about music composition with the youth, giving insights to his work and the industry.
  • Participating youths will be rewarded with a free copy of the next King’s League game! They will also be involved in the creation of the game’s characters! (Naming certain characters and forming in-game dialogues.)
  • The recorded music will be implemented into the next game from the award-winning King’s League series! 

ABOUT THE REWARDS

Rewards will be sent out as soon as the campaign is fully funded and over. Certain rewards will take some time, but the team will be working hard to send out rewards as soon as they’re ready!

Risks and challenges

If any of the key people (Francesco for composing, Casey for transcribing, etc) in the campaign are to fall ill or suffer from accidents, production will be delayed. However, everyone is prepared to give their all to make sure everything will run smoothly, even in the event of unforeseen circumstances.

For our backers who will be receiving physical rewards, there is the risk of shipping delays or accidents - but we will be choosing the best postage service to ensure that the chance of it is minimal.
