About

What's it about?

Cube Ninja! (yes, with the exclamation!) is a minimalist action platformer. Using basic shapes and colors, Cube Ninja! brings the retro arcade style of days gone into the 3rd dimension! You play the Cube Ninja, a dark cube out to defeat the evil boss, Big Dodecahedron. To progress through the game, you'll use a simple yet rewarding attack and movement system to dispatch any number of evenly shaped foes and move your way through unique environments. The project runs using the Unreal Engine 4 software, the bleeding edge of game development.

What can I do in it?

Cube Ninja! has two modes: Story Mode and Conquest Mode. Story Mode is straightforward, with a set number of personally designed levels and a concise ending. You play the Cube Ninja, a deadly warrior who's mission is to destroy the evil 12 sided Big Dodecahedron [doh-dek-uh-hee-druh n] Conquest mode is a customizable round based survival mode, that puts you up against varying numbers and types of enemies in your selected arena. Given a time limit, lives, and any number of rounds to fight through, Conquest will keep you coming back for more!

With proper funding, we'd like to add in a multiplayer feature, allowing for co-op in Conquest, as well as extended areas in Story mode for co-op, and even a head to head mode!

What can I play it on?

Cube Ninja! will be available on Windows, Mac, Android and iOS! If the project receives enough support, a push could be made for consoles as well!

Where's my money going?

If fully funded, the money from this campaign will go towards better development software, extended asset libraries, higher quality equipment, and will allow the developers to focus more time on the project, instead of in retail. This will come back to you in the form of a more robust game, with higher quality production, more advanced character design, and an overall faster development pipeline! The goal of this campaign is to extend the scope of the original game, from a simple action platformer, to a robust title worthy to stand on its own among other indie games!

When will it be done?

The project is currently in beta, which means that the core features are implemented, with extra features and art assets still needing completion. With proper funding, the project could meet and outstrip the original goals, with an expected release in April!

Risks and challenges

The risks to this project are very minimal, considering the majority of the work is done! The challenges right now hinge on the amount of time can be dedicated to the project. Without extra funding, it may take longer. Please be sure to donate if you want the game sooner rather than later!
