A new take on classics such as Skool Daze, Jack the Nipper, Spy vs Spy and many more.
The crown for ultimate saint or sinner needs to be won over four stages of life, the school, university, work and retirement home by any means necessary. The aim of Havoc Your Way is to cause as much havoc as you can!
Who says havoc has to be all bad though? You choose whether you’re the king of mischief or the saint of saintliness. Who will you be, hero or antihero?
But beware! Whichever path you choose, you have an adversary, Brian, who will take the other path, battling against you for points. You decide whether to cause havoc to Brian or to everyone else!
Watch the mayhem unfold... explore, find items, solve puzzles, lay traps and complete missions, to score points and beat Brian! See the hilarious outcomes of your mischief... Choose your own adventure!
Special Edition: If you really want to up the stakes in the mayhem department, pledge on the Special Edition! Extra features include oddities and outlandish scenarios unavailable in the standard version. Rename all the characters and access the test options i.e cheats!
Bonus Level: Pledge a little more and extend the battleground to Brian's home, with the special bonus level!
Pledge on Havoc Your Way and let the chaos begin!
Havoc Your Way draws upon 80s gaming nostalgia of the Commodore 64 and the ZX Spectrum, combined with a dash of modern graphic polish.
It will be aimed towards PC and Mac with stretch goals to develop for iOS, Android, Windows 8 Phone and Blackberry.
Reference and Influences
We love retro games and Havoc Your Way will take great inspiration from games such as Skool Daze, Jack the Nipper, Spy vs Spy, Feud and other favourites where mischief and rivalry are key.
You’re born into this world neither good or bad…events shape who you are. But sometimes a minor event might just have a big impact…
At the start of the game you'll make your choice of whether you are the saintly hero or the mischievous antihero.
Any worthwhile rivalry or grudge should last from childhood to the grave.
You and Brian will battle over 4 key stages of life for the crown of saint or sinner.
Bonus - Brian's Home
Pledge a little more and we will include a bonus level to make your backer's version of Havoc Your Way more special.
Brian has asked you around to his home. Is he asking you to be friendly or does he have some mischief in mind, which he can blame on you? Have you accepted to be friends or have you some evil plot to turn his home upside down?
Win each level by causing the maximum havoc you can. Either havoc to everyone else or to Brian.
Depending on which path you chose, you and Brian will battle doing the opposite to each other to gain achievement points
See yours and Brian's achievement bar go up each time you both successfully carry out a good or bad deed.
Reach 100% on your achievement bar to win that level.
Careful though as doing something which conflicts with your path of being good or bad will gain negative achievement points.
As well as causing havoc, each level will let you have the option of following set routines such as attending classes in the school level or being mischievous by missing them.
As well as having the freedom to cause havoc, characters in the levels may offer you missions to gain double achievement points.
Crowned Saint or Sinner
The crown for saint or sinner will be won when you have beaten Brian at every stage in your lives.

Many Kickstarter projects promise extra features. We think more features mean more delays and a longer release date. Instead we are concentrating on stretch goals of additional platforms post PC/Mac release, extra resources, exclusive music, sound effects, and poster artwork using traditional materials.
Unity licences and additional hardware for Quality Assurance (QA):
- Extra development resource
- Exclusive sound effects and music
- Traditional Artwork
It's people like you who can make these niche games come alive. Also like you, we back projects and love seeing a new indie games studio flourish with Kickstarter backing.
As we passionately believe in the concept of Kickstarter, we've set the goal amount as low as we can to create the game, but also to allow Option 4 Studios to flourish with your help.
We've broken down our costs for transparency, including real costs of accounting, scripting, marketing, licences and hardware for people to QA the game.
Option 4 Studios is a small start-up company. We have over 20 years' combined experience of graphic design and development, in the digital media industry.
We love retro games. We grew up in the ZX Spectrum vs C64 era creating graphics and programming games.
Our creative and technical experience, coupled with bags of enthusiasm, gives us the perfect foundation to let our inner child free and finally make the games we always dreamt of!
With your help Option 4 Studios can realise that dream and create Havoc Your Way.
Risks and challenges
Like many game development projects, the biggest challenge is to keep within timescales. We're aiming to deliver on our proposed release date but keeping all the features and maintaining quality is paramount.
When the game specification is completed, we'll set milestones to keep the development on track. If development slips we'll let you know. Importantly you'll see that progress is still being made and your continued support is important to us.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
