Bringing amazing graphics & dynamic content to social city building. Conquer as a General, Subvert as a Hacker or Lead as an Activist.
Are You Tired Of All Of The Cartoon-Like Social Games Out There And Want More?
Please read the full description below before playing on Facebook or site as the game is now in Beta and LIVE! (Links and Important information below while we are still in Beta)
Why we are doing a Kickstarter campaign: Our game is already 99% complete and in just a few weeks we are optimized, on the cloud, and ready to spread like wild fire. The final steps remaining to launching City Federation are:
- Finalizing Speed and Optimizing Flash
- Introducing more interactive combat like our Drone attack
- Touching up tutorials, player guidance aspects, and features
- Dividing server into multiple database servers and nodes on the Cloud to enable unlimited players coming into the game as well as speed.
- Completion of Mobile version so all can play on their cell phones
- Creating a more interactive map section with nations and provinces mapped rather than using only the current drop down menus
We are NOT a Concept, City Federation is a reality!
With this Kickstarter campaign, our goal Is to be on the Cloud, optimized, super fast and playable with new tutorials and player guidance completed by Mid-October 2012 . If this campaign is successful all rewards will be paid out in October.
For optimum performance, play City Federation on Facebook rather than our website as some features (such as adding friends) is currently not enabled outside of the Facebook application.
The Kickstarter community fits us perfectly. By taking advantage of the rewards of this campaign,you will be a part of an awesome gaming community reaping the rewards of enhanced play for possibly years to come.
What is City Federation? It is a City Building Extravaganza with Amazing Graphics, a Strategic War game as well as Knowledge Hacking and Community Organizing Thrown in To Round It Off.
City Federation Is...
1. What we believe to be The Greatest City Building game of any social game on Facebook or any other Social site complete with the best graphics bar none. Compare to ANY other social games and see how they are basically cartoons with happy smiley faces everywhere.
2. An Awesome global strategy war game for those that wish for glory and conquest as well as politics. We will be completing the interactive combat as we complete this project. The Drone attack is our first example of interactive combat. For the other attacks at the moment we use old combat videos, which we will replace as the interactive combat is completed.
3. A Trivia Game where those who have the knowledge have the power and can use that against any and all others. Just as our gamers today invest their time and minds into their world, here in CityFed your time, intelligence and community actions are quantified on many levels. You can use your knowledge to blackmail or extort others into paying you to not hack them! Just like real life where that nerd in his basement can ruin whole companies, in CityFed knowledge truly is power.
4. Community Organizing extreme, complete with protests, riots, blackmail, unions and mayhem. Whatever your interests in life, City Federation has an area you will excel in just like in real life. You create your own world in City Federation. For those who just love to socialize, most actions in the game get you community points. These points can be used to Protest, or to blackmail others to NOT protesting in their cities for profit. Which turns your social skills into an in-game City Fed dollar machine which can humble even the strongest of Empires.
Also our first interactive attack is called the Drone attack. We want to make all attacks as interactive as this one which you can see after joining by clicking the link above your interface on the right side in the game.
Currently we use combat video for all attacks other than the Drone which was just completed. We expect to have interactive combat attacks for all types, with troops and tanks and planes attacking cities in real time like the Drone attack.
Even for Hack attacks as well as Protests and Riots. All is to become more interactive which can in just a few short months make City Federation the best Social City Building game out there. We believe and think you will agree that CityFed has the best building and city graphics of any social game currently. Take a look and you decide!
This campaign will help us accomplish this in the next few months. You as one of our Kickstarting pledges will benefit more than all who follow as an insider and Founder of the Federation. See the various pledge rewards for details.
The story of the game is simple: All players begin with one city as Mayor in the United States in the year 2015, a few years after the world saw nation after nation fall. Even Revolutions in the United States, Russia and China came to pass.
The Banksters and Wall Street Cartels, along with their allies in the 'New World Order' did their damage and now the people have risen, not just in America but in nations all over the world.
We are NOT exclusively a war game; we are more a city building game than anything else . New players actually will not even see combat in our Basic interface. They need to click on a Drone mission or click "A" in interface to get our advanced features. This was done to prevent information overload, as we have added features and have been perfecting City Federation for over 14 months now. It is its own world ready for you take a piece of it and make your own. This campaign will make you as a pledging supporter one of our Founding Members with many benefits.
You can be at peace forever in your one city in the U.S. and build a business empire, make friends world wide and never worry about war. As a 'peaceful' player you can also build in thousands of cities that are independent as well as in any friend's cities. No restrictions here in CityFed like so many other city building games.
You can also be the Top Knowledge Hacker (Master of Trivia that can launch Hack Attacks on those not as intelligent as you) or Even the Top Community Activist!
For those who have larger ambitions the Federation will assist you in conquering and civilizing cities all over the world in the War Regions.
Also while at peace (while game is in Beta) you can protest, use hacker attacks and create mayhem in all cities that you do not control. You can also blackmail other commanders and leaders world wide to pay you to NOT protest or riot in their cities or get hacked! This is the perfect alternative for our gamers who prefer less military oriented gaming.
- Your 'War' or own experience in City Federation can be one of the mind, or of building the greatest value and cities, or being the First Citizen having the most friends in CityFed.
- Also being added is enhanced News, with a live 'sexy' newscaster who will be announcing news daily on video in game. You too can be mentioned for all to hear of your glorious new nation or Empire. Our reporter for FNS (Federation News Service) you will see daily in the News section. An added feature to make City Federation a whole community with its own News Service. All starting right after this campaign is completed in less than 30 days.
Dictatorships will no longer be tolerated in this brave new Libertarian world. This is 2015 after all...
- Build what we think are the greatest and most magnificent cities of any social game right now ... or conquer thousands that you can build in. There are not many restrictions within the Federation.
- We are all Libertarians and not fans of politicians of any political party. To us politicians of all parties are parasites on the people. It is just the degree of parasitical infection that is the question. The game avoids current politics in the U.S.A. and focuses on the future with a simple common idea... ' Politicians are diseases'
You too can help spread freedom and justice to the world, Join the City Federation and together we can usher in a new era of freedom. Freedom from government world wide. Now is the time...
One of our pledge deals is to have us design a building for you or your own company as an appreciation for your support.
The mouse-over that all will see will be your info, your details, your phone number and website which is really free advertising that others pay games a small fortune for. As one of our Beta pledges you will have the advertisement along with our deepest appreciation.
As we grow and add members your building with your info can be built or seen by tens of thousands or maybe millions all across the U.S. and the world! Also look at our buildings! FREE ADVERTISING for possibly years to come.
Our Magnificent graphics definitely out rank the cartoon buildings of the most popular city building games. City Federation is the next evolution of gaming into more realistic looking cities, buildings and a more grown up appeal. It is also made FOR the player/user.
If you want to be a 'clicking monkey' and have to click every building every day in your start city (and with CityFed you can have thousands of cities making this impossible), then please stick to the happy smiley face monotony you see in other city building games.
- Your time is valuable to us and we simplify things and have a Business page where you can click one button and make all the money from all buildings in ALL of your cities. You can do this up to 4 times a day with some buildings I.E. bowling alleys, grocery stores, bars etc. which will give you income multiple times per day. At the moment just building a structure will by default get you the equal of 'one click' per day per building in income. The rest is up to you and your dedication to adding City Fed dollars with the 'Collect All' button on the business page.
Our Cloud experts are preparing servers such as nodes that are self-replicating and if 100,000 people join (or a million) almost instantly the servers will be set up on the cloud and City Federation will grow as players join. We can add millions of players once we are done with the cloud work and finish optimizing to make the game faster. Everyone who pledges now will be on the ground floor of the operation and City Federation world! Pledgers who take advantage of the rewards here today will have the most advantages and fun for possibly years to come.
Without optimization and the Cloud, the game is slow to load and we apologize to those of you with less than 6GB RAM but you will not be able to play until we finish optimizing and get divided into the cloud for speed.
All who pledge support will actually help us add ideas and develop with access for all members here who join us to "The Outer Senate" where all members can peacefully converse, vote on important matters and make friends as well as discuss issues that affect the global City Federation. The Outer Senate is a given to all pledge amounts and Kickstarter members here who take part in this campaign. as your input will be important to us as we create a community and expand City Federation for years to come.
You can view our first promo video on Youtube . It is also on the website as well as in the Facebook app.
It is our first Promo video by our video guru. All music on site is fully licensed and much of it is 'epic' in nature. Hey...maybe we will one day put out a movie. The game has that much content already! We are 99.99% Original Content with the remaining .01% licensed or bought by us for us like our combat videos.
All Graphics of All Buildings Are Custom made by our own Designers! A Major attraction in City Federation.
Compare our graphics to any other city building game on any social media site.
See instantly why City Federation has the potential to be huge. Our designers are ready to design additional buildings for those that support our project at various levels.
Best of All we can be completed in less than 30 days from the completion of this campaign.
There will be a link on right side above interface inviting you test the drone attacks. Tutorials are almost done and we are ready for the public. More interactive combat is to follow and this project secures the funding and completion of the project will secure the completion of the development of the game.
Our new page to be on our site late September and included in all pledge amounts is called our 'Founders of The Federation' page.
The 'experts' told us we could never compete with the big boys in social gaming. After 14 months of developing City Federation it is our hope that you will disagree with the 'experts' and instead agree with our Testers, Programmers and Designers in saying that not only have we competed but we have in fact surpassed what is available on social gaming sites.
Warning - You can play now while in Beta for free on Facebook but be advised that while we are finishing up Flash optimization and speed, City Fed pages may be slow to load.
We will spend a week optimizing our Flash. At the moment a player needs 6GB RAM and a relatively new computer to see the game well. This will only be until we optimize and spread into the cloud servers.
Our expected finish date was January of 2013. If this small campaign here at Kickstarter is successful we can be completed sometime in October of 2012, letting all of you who get any of the rewards reap the benefits of enhanced play and advantages over other players.
We are already 99% Completed And Ready To Go With a Little Kickstart from those that pledge today to complete this project!
You can one of our Founders in what may even become the Greatest Social City Building game of our time!
We pledge to continue to grow and expand the game , platform and site. While you... well just enjoy the game and know that your pledge is doing your part in casting aside the era of social games with happy smiley faces and cartoon like buildings.
