About

"Take nothing but memories, leave nothing but footprints" - Chief Si'ahl

Welcome to the world of Footprints - a unique minimalistic game where everyone is invisible and all you can see are their footprints being left behind.

Featuring both solo play and multiplayer modes, there's plenty of fun for everyone!

Create blueprints on your own or with friends, then share them with the world via Steam Workshop!

Your vote counts!

Want to help get this game on Steam? Check out the Steam greenlight page: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=309530767

Game modes include:

Mazes

This mode is perfect for both solo play and multi-player. The aim is simple: to be the first to reach a certain point in the maze. You will see other footprints, but... do you follow in others' footsteps, or take you're own path? The choice is yours.

There will be a leaderboard for the fastest times, and achievements too!

Prototype footage (far from final gameplay):

Multiplayer deathmatch

This is how the initial concept began. The idea is to shoot other players, either the opposite team (team deathmatch) or anyone you see (free-for-all). The only problem is, you can't see them... only footprints. Much like paintball, you have a certain number of pellets, and get it once and you essentially die.

Prototype footage (not quite actual gameplay)

 Capture the flag

Two teams have to try and get the other's flag back to their own, but much like Deathmatch... all you can see are footprints and the flag. One shot and you'll drop the flag. Will your team defend it and continue your journey or will the other team get to it first?

Last man standing

This game mode was discovered during the first ever playtest I did with friends. The aim is to be the last man standing on a block while blocks around you randomly disappear (or explode?)

Listen carefully!

Want to have the advantage over other players? Footprints plans to integrate Razer Surround, allowing players to hear exactly where other players are. 

Original Soundtrack

Footprints features an awe-inspiring original soundtrack that is currently being composed and produced by LorD and master.

 

360 Controller support

This was actually one of the first features to be implemented! As for other controllers, I don't see why not... but for now there's 360 support!

Multi-Platform and Cross-Platform!

Footprints will be available on both Windows, Linux and Mac and the multi-player aspect will work seamlessly across all platforms, meaning you could be playing on Windows, but playing against others who have a Mac or Linux machine!

Help get it Greenlit!

Footprints will be released as an Early-Access title on Steam, so that you - the community - can help shape the future of Footprints, influence key decisions, report bugs and request new features that make the game even more awesome. Of course, it will only be available on Steam once it's received enough votes!

So, why a Kickstarter campaign?

I'd really like to take a break from my full-time job to focus on the game. As of right now, development is limited to my spare time, which are mainly at the weekends. As you can tell, it's still early days, and the game is still in the prototype stages. I'd really like to get it to you sooner, without it feeling rushed!

In order to build the game for the Mac platform, I'll need to buy one! There's also a number of license fees in order to develop and publish the game.

What you get in return

By supporting the Kickstarter campaign, everyone will receive a copy of the game on Steam when it's released. Essentially, you'll be pre-ordering the game, but there are also other benefits for those who pledge more!

Risks and challenges

Having a full-time job limits me to only being able to work on the game during my spare time.

I'm dedicated to bringing this concept to life, and creating a game that everyone can enjoy so I've already purchased all the necessary licenses to get things moving quicker.
