About

Wizbox is a couch-coop fantasy fighting game, where you’ll get together with your mates to cast spells and blow each other up! Playing an animated figurine, you’ll wield weapons, elements, and relics to scorch, crush, impale, and blow away your foes. 

Within each level you’ll pick up a weapon and power it with an element. Combat is fast-paced and wild, spells will fire at you from all directions, so you’ll have to be quick and smart to outplay your enemies.

Wizbox will have over one hundred levels, from stinking swamps and spooky graveyards, to dusty libraries and great halls. We decided to handcraft all our levels, so you’ll have the most charming and charismatic setting to do battle in!  

Currently we plan on releasing Wizbox on the PC (most likely via Steam). If there's demand for it we're definitely interested in releasing it for console too!

It’s not all fun and games in the wizarding world, potions class is a snooze fest and arithmancy gives you a headache. So, why not play Wizbox, the game for wizards!? With a simple transfiguration spell, you can turn a lifeless lump of clay into minion of death and destruction! Conjure one for your chums too and begin your epic onslaught.  

In Wizbox, you’ll use weapons to channel the elements into different types of spells. If you wield a staff you'll shoot out projectiles of scorching fire or freezing icy lances. Get a sceptre and you'll spray a flurry of mud or lightning. 

Positioned around each level you’ll find elemental sources that can be absorbed into your weapon. There are four elements: water, earth, fire, and air. Each element will inflict a status effect, fire will burn, water will freeze, earth will slow, and air will stun.

If you’re lucky, you’ll also find a relic. Powerful and rare, these epic artefacts require no element and will devastate your foes. You can summon typhoons, shoot lasers from your fingertips, or kill your enemies with a single touch. 

We also know that everyone has a different playstyle, so before you begin, you’ll pick an innate ability. If you’re steadfast and stoic, pick the shield ability. If you want to be fast and nimble, pick the teleport. Or if you really want to stick it to your friends, pick the deflect spell ability and kill them with their own fireball. 

 £8,000 - Minimum amount that will allow us to complete and release the game.

£10,000 - Gives us more time to create even more levels and spells.

£13,000 - Marketing funds to spread the word and hire artists.

£15,000 - Add the ability to build your own levels to play in the game.

£20,000 - Online multiplayer. Invite your friends to play Wizbox from anywhere in the world!

Thanks for any support you can give! If the Kickstarter is successful you can keep up to date with the game by following us on Twitter, Facebook, or emailing us.

Why Kickstarter?  

Party Pigeon is currently a two person team funding Wizbox out of our own pocket. We've got the game into a state where we can share our vision, but there is still a long way to go!   

The money raised by this campaign will allow us to work on the project full time to bring our vision to reality! We've also added stretch goals beyond our base funding that will allow us to push Wizbox even further.  

Risks and challenges

Game development is difficult. Requiring many different skills and knowledge. But we feel very confident that we can bring Wizbox to you successfully using the team's experience of game development and software engineering both in and outside industry.

Being able to work on our own video game project full time is a dream come true which will motivate us to complete the project with polish, love, and care.
