We need a new kind of game. Something we can play with the WORLD! This game will be available on iOS, Android, and Facebook!

What we would like to do...

We are using Kickstarter to help us raise the money needed for development. At the very least, we'd like to create the demo and promote the game. If we are extremely successful, we might be able to forgo seeking investors, and develop the entire game on our own, but we’ll need your help to get there.

This is the road so far...

Every game has a game piece/character (usually people, animals, or obscure objects). In World Doors, you are a ball...
        Why a ball? Well, a ball can do many things. They are actually quite expressive. They can bounce, spin, roll, blink, float, or even pop! We wanted our characters to have many abilities and emotions, while finding a game piece capable of simple expression and customization by the players.
        So we started sketching out the idea with ball characters in mind. About a half a year into the sketches, the idea began to flow into something really interesting. The interactions between characters and players were going to be exciting and entertaining. The levels were simple, yet engaging in ways that brought a certain mystery. It looked as though we had a game concept the whole world could enjoy, with customization in characters and mansions, not to mention the hidden doors leading to levels with even more hidden doors, that lead somewhere hidden, deep inside the game.
        Then there was the added element of secrets that would make the game thought-provoking, hopefully motivating more and more people to come play from every corner of the world. Players actually have to work together, from different points around the world, to achieve something for all. Other things will only be available once someone out in the world finds it and activates it, making it available for everyone else. The story is subtle, almost hidden, and advances slowly as the world interacts with the game. We were pretty excited with the idea. It was time to stop talking and start taking the steps necessary to bring the game to life.

            In May of 2011… Night Time Software Inc. was born...

     Our optimism was high; our goal was to create the game that would connect the world. It was time to seek out either an investor or a developer to help us move forward. We started with the developer. Being careful not to give too much away without having non-disclosure agreements signed, we reached out to a few developers with a Game Plan. It didn't take us long to find an interested party with the qualifications and willingness to help that we were looking for.

The CEO of Tekyz Inc. David Hirschfeld said he was very interested in our project. After viewing his proposal, he told us what our next steps should be. We would need to raise approximately $75,000 for the first version of the game. He also told us that we would need to find a dedicated artist, capable of creating the visuals that would be necessary to have a successful social media game / iOS, Android app. www.tekyz.com
            In July of 2011 we started a project on www.crowdSPRING.com to find an artist ( View crowdSPRING Gallery: http://crowdspring.co/Hkz5IQ ). After receiving about 68 entries from very talented artists around the world, one artist from Tokyo blew us away! He turned our concepts into gold. Quite literally, our stick figures had become visual masterpieces. We had found our artist and were ready for the next step.
            We showed David the full HD images of what the game could become and he was very impressed. He predicted that Night Time Software could have 50 full time developers of its own within the first year of the game being out!

"Wow," we said. We began to believe we might have the next big idea for social gaming. David's team at Tekyz was confident they could deliver a finished product from which we could build from. It was time to seek funding.

            After signing up with the New York Investment Network, we were contacted by an investor from Singapore. He was interested in funding the game, and said he would hire us our own team of developers to create it, but there was a catch. He wanted to move us over to India or Russia. Understandably, he would want to be close to the project. This is where we had a dilemma. We had found the money to create the game, but the thought of moving everything overseas, not to mention hiring a team of unproven developers, led us to pass on the offer. Knowing that David and his team at Tekyz were professional, experienced, and could deliver a fully functional final product made the decision easy.
            That's when our artist told us about a great website that might be able to help us obtain the funding needed to create the game. Crowd funding and Kickstarter have exploded since then! We recognized a great opportunity. Through rewards to our supporters, we could fund the game, while getting support and exposure through the online community. So we took some time, did our research, put out a few ads on Facebook to help find interested Kickstarter backers, and we were able to build a large enough audience to make a go of it.

We gathered over 600 Likes in a short period of time.

It looked like we were going to need a video, or two, or three. These videos would be used to help us explain the game and generate interest locally and internationally.
            We sought out our local CableOne department. There, we found a very talented videographer who created a fun video to help us get our local game enthusiasts here in Southern Idaho familiar with the idea and behind the project. Next, we created several more videos to explain the game to our Kickstarter backers.

The video for Southern Idaho can be seen here:

We hope the videos provide some insight into what our game is all about. Please continue reading, and check out the rewards that we have lined up for the game. Thank you for taking the time to read about Project: World Doors. Tell your friends, family, and neighbors, oh, and don't forget to like us on Facebook!

If you would like to know more, we could tell you about this game forever. Keep scrolling!

We mean it when we say, "This is the most fun we will ever have together on Facebook."

Players from around the world will flock to Facebook, just to spend time exploring these Mansions and Hidden Levels with their friends.

This is the game we have all been waiting for. One the world can play together! The cure for boredom, literally!
     If you have never played a Facebook game, you will want to start. If you have lost interest in video games on your phone or tablet, prepare to spend a lot more time with your mobile devices! Get your chargers ready...

World Doors is going to intrigue, connect, entertain, and inspire the online global community in ways that have never been witnessed. Quite a declaration, but here is our promise to you... this game will reach out, and change the world of gaming forever.

"There are many secrets in this game, but one of those secrets changes the entire game for everyone. One person will discover this hidden secret, and they will have to decide: Share it, or Keep it to themselves... Once the secret is out, there is no going back."

There are 5 doors in this room. One person must find the 5th door, and unlock it for all. Once enough people have come through, something special in the game will take place...

This game is loaded with secrets, we can't wait for players to start discovering what is hidden in each and every level... Players will love the 'Day / Night' concept in the game.

With your help, this game will come to life and we will see if we can create a new favorite game for the world. We're just about ready! We just need that extra push to make it the rest of the way. Lets turn those Northern Lights on!

In World Doors we will visit many different locations; tropical islands, the North Pole, the desert, the Moon, and many other real-life places.

There is something really neat and unique about the levels in World Doors. Each level has 4 doors: 3 are visible, 1 is hidden, and 1 has to be unlocked. If you unlock enough of these secret doors you will find yourself hidden somewhere deep inside the game. Players are going to have a blast with this! It'll be the new place to hang out online...

This is where it all starts...
This is where it all starts...

Help us turn this idea into a game for the future.
We promise to deliver the most addicting game possible. Although you shouldn't, you will literally want to miss work, school, and other activities to spend time with your friends and family playing this game. You will want to invite others to play, even those people in your life who would normally never play a video game. When you stop playing, you will want to get back in there as soon as you can.

           Hint: The key his hidden somewhere inside the Hill Mansion... 

What does the Key look like: The key, is a little Golden Pick. The one you see below, which is the App Icon for this game. This symbol also represents Points!

What can I use points for? Use points to decorate and furnish your Mansion. Unlock more areas of your Mansion, or decorate your ball with Skins from the Store.

TV: See the TV below... sometimes it will come on and give you interesting info, so make sure you pay attention when it does!

 Buy another Mansion: Save up enough points to unlock the Underwater Mansion, Haunted Forest Mansion, or the Mega Mansions! If you find a Golden Pick you can use it to unlock any of these Mansions.

 Pets: Use your points to get a Dog who will come to your rescue in the game and chase off the Cat! The Cat: this guy will steal your points. When you hear the music change, you better find a door to go through, otherwise he is coming to get you. A dog would be a good investment with your points! There will be several types of dogs and several other kinds of pets.

Skins & Skin Colors: Visit the store and buy new Skins and Skin Colors for your character. Some Skins give your ball special abilities!

The characters: The game piece we chose as the character for World Doors is a simple ball, as you know by now.When a player starts the game, they will be asked to choose 2 or 3 colors and a shape. This will then generate the player's character. Other Skins are available in the store, and can be bought with points!

In the end... there are still some secrets that we are going to hang onto. You'll just have to wait till the game comes out. While we are willing to part with some of these secrets in order to get the game funded... there are several secrets in particular about this game, and how it evolves, that we cannot share at the moment.

Spoiler Alert! Here is one more...

The 3 players that appear at the top of the World Lobby are either the top 3 players of the day or 3 players that have been randomly selected. These will reset at least every 24 hours, but possibly more frequently. Better yet though, is that these 3 players get to enter a hidden room. The only way in is to be one of these 3 players. These players get to decide certain things throughout the day, and on some days their decisions will impact the game greatly... We would love to spill the beans, but you'll have to wait to find out ;)

...we'll tell you more when the game comes out. But for now, thanks for checking us out, and we'll see you soon!

Make sure you see the rewards! We have some pretty fun stuff in there.
