We also intend to use every Steam feature available to us including: Steam Cloud, Inventory, Friends, VOIP, Achievements, and Trading Cards.

These features will allow us to make the game more robust, entertaining, and socially connected.

The full release of Tower Unite will be available for download on Steam for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Almost. It’s what we call a decentralized massively multiplayer online game (MMO). Unlike other MMO games, Tower Unite is hosted, managed, and powered by the players.

That's right, we’re giving you the ability to host your own servers. We’ll have official servers of our own, but if you can’t join them - start your own! Invite friends over to your condo, start a plaza for people to join, or head straight to a game world.  

Tower Unite servers will attempt to communicate with other Tower Unite servers and provide sparse game state information such as player positions and text chat. You’ll be able to spot players in 3D space who are on another Tower Unite server and pull them over to yours to hook up.

In Tower Unite everyone has their own personal space, which we call a Condo. This space is fully customizable, bottom to top. From the style and layout of the furniture to the landscaping of the garden, you can tweak it however you like. It’s a space that defines you, and acts as the gathering point for you and your friends.

Watch YouTube videos, listen to music on Soundcloud, or just chat with your friends.

From the Condo you can exit through your front door into a bigger online experience called the Plaza. The Plaza connects players from around the globe using an intuitive matchmaking system. If there is no Plaza to connect to - then you will automatically create one.

The Plaza acts as a social gathering point, like a shopping mall. The Plaza has public theaters, stores, attractions, and Game World ports. You connect and meet new players at the Plaza.

Shops are available to further customize your look, condo, and more. You will be able to unlock clothing, furniture, toys, and pets.

 On top of that you'll be able to customize your avatar in various ways, such as:

  • Altering height, weight, and definition
  • Adjusting skin tone Select eye color, spacing, and size
  • Adjusting facial features
  • Altering hair color and style
  • Changing clothing and accessories (hats, etc.)

The Arcade features interactive 2D games and numerous indoors activities such as bowling, and skee ball.

The Boardwalk is a relaxing oceanfront with constantly expanding outside activities like a ferris wheel and pool.

The Casino lets you gamble virtual chips with your friends. It has blackjack, slots, roulette, poker, and video machines.

The Theater and Nightclub are places where everyone can share and discover new videos and media with their friends.

The Plaza is an infinitely expanding location-- based on community feedback, we plan to constantly provide additions and new activities to this area.

And here’s the cool part: once you’ve gotten a group of people together in the Plaza you can then go to a Game World.

Game Worlds are large multiplayer games that you can enjoy with 4-18 players, depending on the world’s rules.

Each Game World has its own gameplay mechanics and genre. We have 10 Game Worlds planned for the initial launch and more to be announced for future updates:

A light hearted and fun physics based game. Your goal is to get to the end of the obstacle course as fast as you can.

Roll your way around mesmerizing, intricate levels. Get past tricky obstacles and hazards such as bumpers, repellers, attractors, lasers, crushers, lava, and more.

Each level has its own theme and each course a unique set of puzzles. Carefully roll around and try not to fall off. Some puzzles require you to press buttons, memorize patterns, carefully plan movements, or work with others.

Tiny Crusaders is an one versus all cooperative game. The dragon is destroying your kingdom, and the brave--although slightly overweight--brave knights of the kingdom must put an end to the dragon’s reign of terror.

At the start of each round, a new player is selected to be the dragon and gets to wreak havoc. The knights will have to work together in order to stop the dragon from eating the entire village, lest they get eaten themselves.

Minigolf is a relaxing, but action filled game world based on its real life counterpart. Sit back and play with your friends on our 18 hole courses while competing to get the lowest score.

Like Ball Race, each level has its own themes with their own dangers and quirks. From water hazards to bottomless pitfalls, each level throws you straight into the action as all 18 players putt simultaneously in hopes of getting a hole-in-one.

Hit the racetrack with your friends and race around our insane, gravity defying tracks to compete for that golden first place trophy.

Use various power-ups to trip up other drivers and increase your lead. Drive in unique environments with tracks that twist and bend. Speed past others in this adrenaline filled kart racing experience.

Zombie Massacre is an arcade style top-down shooter that tests your endurance against hordes of undead zombies. Team up with up to five other players and try to survive wave after wave of this seemingly endless onslaught until the helicopter arrives.

As you traverse through these unique arena styled levels, you’ll find an arsenal of randomly spawning weapons-- from baseball bats to grenade launchers.

Pick between five different battle-hardened characters: The Doctor, The Journalist, The Electrician, The Mercenary, and The Survivor. Each character has a unique set of equipment, melee weaponry, and combo-killing moves. Use your diverse skillsets to keep your team alive or become another snack for the zombie horde.

Virus is a fast-paced cooperative and competitive first person shooter set in a dystopian sci-fi universe. At the start of each round, one player is randomly chosen to become “The Infected”. Everyone else is a “Survivor” and must avoid that player or they too will become infected.

As an infected player, your goal is to contaminate all other players by touching them. You are faster than the survivors due to your newly accelerated weight loss.

As a survivor, you must use your arsenal of weapons to keep the infected players at bay. Just don’t get too close, one touch and you’ve got a bad case of the worst disease imaginable. It’s deadly, it can not be cured, and it’s coming straight for you.

Run fast. Really fast.

The game is over when the 90 second timer runs out, or all of the survivors have been infected.

Slaughter Day Night Live is a high-energy first person shooter deathmatch game. The premise is simple: give contestants tons of overpowered and deadly weapons, make some references to pop culture to increase those TV ratings, then throw all that into a deathmatch free-for-all. Lots of gore, lots of destruction! It’s what the audience craves!

You've got two minutes to make the most out of your time in the spotlight. Rip through your foes as quickly as you can. Movement and weapons are tailored for in-your-face action.

You move a lot faster than most FPS games and you have the ability to double jump. In addition to your weapons, temporary power ups are placed around the arena that give you amazing powers to take down your foes in spectacular ways.

Slaughter Day Night Live is not for tactical minds. Only skill can win.

Slaughter Day Night Live arenas go from one extreme to another. Battles will take place all over hazardous locations such as a snowy mountaintop, a battle cruiser, a scrapyard, and even out in deep space.

You and your team of four entered a scary mansion. With your wits and careful management of items you find, you must complete a series of objectives while avoiding haunting apparitions.

Those who decide to become ghosts must try to stop the humans from completing their tasks.

Test your knowledge against your friends. In this elimination-based trivia game you’ll be asked multiple questions across all sorts of categories. Compete against your friends in an all out brain testing experience.

As you play games in Tower Unite you collect points called Units. Units can be used to unlock furniture items, toys, clothing, and other neat in-game items. You can also gamble Units at the Casino, duel players for Units, and trade Units with other players.

Oh, and you have to earn Units. There will never be a way to purchase Units. Unlike most MMO or virtual life games, this isn't a pay-to-win game.

There will also be tons of achievements, in-game trophies, badges, and item-awards (milestones) to achieve. Tower Unite is very achievement heavy allowing for strong replayability.

Tower Unite isn’t just a walking around simulator. You can run, jump, crouch, use jetpacks, get drunk, dance, sit, stand, throw-up, lounge in pool tubes, give high fives, and much much more. You can of course also: voice chat, text chat, group up with friends, and participate in various parties! The possibilities are endless!

Tower Unite comes equipped with a powerful multimedia system. Watch synchronized YouTube videos or listen to music from Soundcloud. We’ll be constantly adding support for more media services for you and your friends to share and enjoy from within Tower Unite.

As mentioned before, we’re letting you have the ability to host your own Tower Unite servers.

We’ll have two types of servers - ranked and free. Ranked servers track players and distribute Units. Free servers allow for modification of the Tower Unite systems - but won’t distribute Units. You’ll also have a slew of moderation tools built in to handle players to enforce your own rules. And with free servers you can even create your own items and accessories.

We want players to feel like they all have an equal chance at getting the items in the game. We care about our community and we strongly believe in the idea that a game should only incur a one-time cost (the purchase price) and that all of its content should be available at no extra charge.

Tower Unite is a spiritual successor of one of the most popular gamemodes on Garry’s Mod, GMTower. GMTower, which runs on the Source Engine, is where we invented the core ideas and concepts for Tower Unite. GMTower has been available for free to the public for over five years and has constantly evolved.

One of our strongest influence is our community. We have listened, discussed with, and implemented ideas that our players came up with. We wouldn't be here if it weren't for our community’s undying support for us. We’re proud to have 45 thousand active users on GMTower!

We’re keeping that same attitude for Tower Unite. That’s why everything that we implement will be made for the community or requested by the community. Just like we did with GMTower, we aim to have constant free feature updates for Tower Unite.

PixelTail games is team of 9 independent game developers from around the globe; from all across America to the United Kingdom, we've combined our diverse skills and talents to form a truly unique development team.

Over the past five years, we have shipped free products on the Source™ engine that have gained a substantial amount of popularity: 

  • GMTower, the massively multiplayer experience and Tower Unite’s predecessor.
  • Elevator: Source; a one of a kind coop elevator simulator.
  • Cinema, an online theater experience that allows you to watch movies and videos with your friends.
You can read more about us on our press site: http://www.pixeltailgames.com/press/

For over five years, we've been providing content to our community for free.

We love what we do, especially seeing the incredible amount of feedback from the community. If we were to be funded for our work, we could work on Tower Unite as a full-time job to bring you brand new content that would never be possible otherwise.

For months, we have been iterating on concepts for Tower Unite as a standalone game and we are finally ready to make it happen. We shipped our last product for the Garry’s Mod platform, GMTower: Lobby 2 and now we’re ready to make our own standalone title.

Tower Unite is more than a game-- it’s a social network. Meeting new people across the globe is a phenomenon that we love to contribute to. We believe that a standalone product which cultivates this is worth making.

Kickstarter allows you to become part of the project from the very beginning. You are the producers of our game.

The full release of Tower Unite will be available for download on Steam for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

We are also actively looking into adding VR support to the Condo and Plaza.
 
 

Risks and challenges

We understand that this game is a huge undertaking. However, we've been working on another project that has the core features of Tower Unite for over 5 years. We've been taking care of a large online community consisting of over 280 thousand players from around the globe. On top of that, we've been supported by over 7,000 donors since before this campaign. We’re confident in what we’re doing and we can complete this project.

We estimate that this project will take us 8 months to get feature complete - and once it’s ready we will launch an Early Access release on Steam to test core networking components to ensure everything is solid. It'll also help us get the feedback we need from the community as well as generate more interest and revenue to keep us going as a company.

We are completely devoted to this project. This is a project we’re passionate about and one that sits deeply in our hearts.

We've learned a lot from the previous projects we've worked on and developed our skill-sets to a point where we’re able to create amazing content independently.

Our biggest risk is not being funded. We absolutely need your support so we can focus on this project full time and deliver a game that everyone can enjoy.
