What are Stretch Goals?
Stretch goals are extra content that we can accomplish if the funding goals are met! For instance, if we received $200,000 in backings then we would have more resources to implement that specific feature. That's not to say we wont see these features in the future, but if we reach our stretch goals we can then complete, and deliver them sooner with confidence.
Final two stretch goals will be available upon completion after release. Please refer to FAQ for additional information.

Nano-screen 3 will slightly reduce visibility and slows enemies within the screen.

New World Coders is an independent game and software developer founded in 2010 by Zack Patterson and his crew. We are a fun-loving, hard working team and have dedicated our lives into the creation of video games and software. One of our many goals is to create awesome original games with original content.
We love working with the gaming community! If you have ideas, or recommendations please feel free to throw them our way!
(We all really want to make this game for you!)
Risks and challenges
Developing video games is hard! Art, design, and technology must blend seamlessly to create a cohesive experience.
We have made it our main objective to polish and have a fully working game, up and running before showing it off to the public! We have certainly surpassed that in our eyes!
(Currently public copies of the game are not available but will be soon, especially if our funding goal is met!)
We have a game that can grow and become something massive, we plan on continuing development for a very long time!
Our biggest risk is development time. If production were to go late, funding would be the biggest problem.
Another risk we have is network capability, our eyes are wide but are bandwidth is narrow. With help from the community we can continue to update and optimize our game engine to handle more players while not compromising game play.
However these risk and challenges may sound scary, they are not. Perish that thought of failure! New World Coders is a very experienced team with many past experiences in their fields!
The solution is you! Help out today but supporting us on Kick starter!
