All future pledges made after the Kickstarter ends will be applied to our Stretch Goals!

My name is Lewis Pugh and I have been creating games for mobile platforms including iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows Phone for the last 8 years. My previous games include: Twisted Fates, Super Cora-Bolt and Chipper's Tea Party.  
 


Although mobile platforms are great, I have always been a huge Nintendo fan at heart and I currently write and host for www.Infendo.com and Infendo Radio (on iTunes). It has been a long held ambition of mine to create games for a Nintendo home console; a dream I am now one step closer to, having been approved by Nintendo to develop games for the Wii U. Now, with the might of the kickstarter community and your support, I have the opportunity to bring my vision to your Wii U console; Twisted Fusion.

 

 

 

Who is Cora? Cora is the star of Twisted Fusion! Our red headed hero finds herself in a strange world overrun by vicious creatures including: sinister slimes and monstrous mosquitoes. Their only weakness...water! In Cora's arsenal are her iconic dual water pistols which she can fire while standing, running and even jumping. As well as these high powered squirters, she also has access to explosive water bombs which are thrown in an arch and take even the most well defended beasts by surprise. Cora's super-charged garden sprinkler can be deployed to rain down watery death on any monster foolish enough to enter its spray, and when things get really hairy, she can always rely upon her trusty water cannon.

 

 

Twisted Fusion is best described as an 'Open Platformer'; it's not exactly Metroidvania but the entire game is connected without the need to jump to unwieldy menus or maps. Each section of the game is packed with mysterious areas and uncharted paths, giving you plenty of reasons to retrace your steps and use your new gear and abilities to unlock secrets in previously explored areas.


A significant part of Twisted Fusion is its combat; your main attack (Cora's dual water pistols) have unlimited ammo, meaning she always has a means to dispatch her enemies even when her special weapons are depleted - this girl never backs down from a fight!

The game will also include a day/night and weather system;  The time of day and weather also has an effect on the way monsters behave. At night for instance, you will encounter bigger and meaner foes whilst in rainy weather, monsters become 'enraged' and will attack with extra ferocity - these critters really hate water!

Take up your water pistols and join Cora on her epic adventure across floating islands and through dank dungeons as she fights to find a way home.

 
 

Stretch goals are an important part of any Kickstarter project. I have kept the initial funding goal as low as possible whilst cover the necessary essentials such as: the Wii U Developer Kit, Graphic assets, Audio Assets to names but a few. With your help however, we can go beyond the initial plans for Twisted Fusion and make it not just a single amazing Wii U adventure but an awesome variety of fun games and modes in one big package!



 

Now for the interesting bit! Rewards! Look over the following list carefully, there's lots of exclusive goodies and even opportunities to create your own character or enemy. All reward tiers include a digital Wii U eShop copy of the game once released (estimated December 2014) Please note all $ prices are estimated at time of writing.

*Please note pledges that include custom content such as NPC, Creatures and playable characters can not be guaranteed for time of release (depending on demand) although we will try are very best. If this is the case your content will become part of the next free software update.

 
 

The final Stretch Goal "21 Days" is a game in itself. If met, this game will be released as a separate game on the Wii U eShop, as it will likely have a higher age rating to Twisted Fusion. I estimate 21 Days will be available Q4 2015.

21 Days is inspired by the story behind the N64 classic: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. Not only is this also an 'Open Platformer' like Twisted Fusion, but the game will run on a 21 day clock with unique events happening on different days and at different times. There are also RPG elements within the game, allowing players to build on Cora's abilities - all of which are maintained even after you are turn back the clock to day 1.

21 Days has a visibly dark tone to that of Twisted Fusion; taking place in a much darker and grittier world. Cora swaps in her duel water guns for two very real swords - her foes in this game require a more traditional approach! .

Use the Wii U GamePad to manage your diary to see what events you can make it to and manage your items on-the-fly. With 3 weeks to play with you will need all the help you can get if you are to find everything and everyone you need before the apocalypse!

 
 
 

Leuvsion was founded by Lewis Pugh in September 2008 when he decided to do what he called the "Make an iPhone game in 30 days challenge", this was done without any prior Mac OS, Objective-C or Xcode knowledge and was all published on YouTube.


Since then we have worked with many partners to create a whole range of fantastic and unique games for the iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows Phone which are now available to buy direct from your device of choice.

All this couldn't of possibly be done by just myself. The people who have made this project possible so far are:

HitmanN / Ville Vuorio - 2D Sprite Artist / Special effects
Jonathan Adamich - Composer
Nouin - Anime Character Artist

Risks and challenges

Every project has it's challenges and obstacles to overcome. Twisted Fusion builds upon my experience from previously released games such as 2010 Twisted Fates, 2011 Project RUN and 2012 Super Cora-Bolt 2 and many games in between.

I have been testing and creating the new 'Twisted' Engine exclusively on Wii U hardware now for the last 6 months and am fully confident that this epic game can be completed within budget and on time.

Every Leuvsion game before this has been leading up to this point. Thank you so much for your support in advance in making this dream a reality and making an awesome game together.
