About this project
iPayWhatIWant - An Indie Game Bundle For Every Platform
Pay any price you want and you'll receive all the games in the bundle on every major mobile device/computer. No matter how many devices you have and regardless of what they are, I want you to be able to play these games. That means all the following platforms are supported:
Pc, Mac, Linux, Android, and iOS
A special version of each game is being made for iPhone/iPod Touch, and an HD version for the iPad. All the games are DRM free and can be downloaded any amount of times you want.
These are all games I developed over the past 8 months. I designed them specifically to work well no matter what device you're running. Below you'll see a list of all the games and a brief description:
In Truck Rush you're a truck driver who has to progress through 40+ levels of merciless obstacles.
In Rocket Rush you control a rocket ship that has to blast through 40+ action packed levels.
Ice Cream Truck puts you in the role of an ice cream delivery person who has to navigate through 30+ crazy levels of obstacles to deliver ice cream to the kids at the end of each level.
Escape your office that has become infested with living computers, desks, and other deadly devices. See if you can get through all 40+ levels alive!
I've designed all these games to be extremely re playable. The games keeps track of your best scores so you can go back to try and master each level.
Pledge anything, get everything
In the spirit of iPayWhatIWant, if you pledge any amount of money to this campaign you'll receive all the games for every platform!
How it works
Once the bundle goes live (which I estimate will happen sometime in November this year). You go to the website http://ipaywhatiwant.com (currently under construction). And type in any amount of money you want to pay from a penny up to anything.
Once you pay for the bundle you will be taken to a download page which will provide you with all the links you need to download all the games for every platform including Android and iOS devices. These links are DRM free, meaning the games are super easy to install on every device and you can download as many times as you want, for as many devices as you want!
Why I need your help
Currently I'm working on my own on this. I'm an independent game developer and while all these games are nearly complete, I need to hire a few people to make this bundle possible.
The most important job I need help with is building the website, while I have built websites in the past this website needs to be extremely secure and make it super easy for you to be able to pay and receive your games with absolutely zero downtime. This is something I estimate will cost $4,000
In addition, while I do have functional betas of all these games on PC, Mac, iOS, and Android I still don't have an Android device of my own to actually test the games with. So I need to buy something that runs Android to test on and also hire somebody to help me get the games officially running on Linux (without the assistance of Wine or emulation). This will cost around $1,000 I estimate.
So that's what your $5,000 will go towards. If we can raise this money I promise I will make it worth your while and I've set up these rewards so that you can get the most out of this process as possible. Your help is extremely appreciated.
If we manage to exceed our goal here I've come up with a number of stretch goals:
$10,000 - Content update. The games will all come with an additional 20 levels each! (Ice Cream Truck will have at least 50 levels, Truck Rush, Rocket Rush, Office Escape will all have at least 60 levels).
$20,000 - Support for advanced iOS features such as the retina display on the new iPad and Game Center support with achievements in all the games.
$30,000 - More games. At least one new game for a total of five! This game (or games) will be included as a reward when you pledge as well as when you purchase the bundle when the site goes live.
I have more ideas for stretch goals in addition to these. I would also like to hear your ideas on what you think I should add to this bundle.
Your support really means a lot to me. Please feel free to contact me through this page or via email (max [AT] allgamesallfree.com) with any questions or ideas you might have. Also if you're a developer working on a game for all these platforms let me know if you're interested in jumping on board. Again thanks everyone for your support!
