About

                    

 Leave None Behind is a single-player game which utilizes real-time switching between three mechanically unique characters. These unlikely allies must set aside their inherent rivalries and work together in order to escape their captivity. You must overcome puzzling obstacles in a 2D platform environment in order to achieve immediate and distant goals while adventuring through a surreal environment.

 Leave None Behind tells the story of three AWOL soldiers (Wilhelm, a German engineer; Nikolai, a Ukrainian hulk; and Jack, an agile marine) during the last offensive toward Berlin in WW2. Separated from their respective armies, they are taken by a mysterious German man under the pretense of offered security in the war-torn country. Held captive in a small shed, they make their way down through the connected sewer to discover a gargantuan underground factory and begin to question why they are there. Through exploration, the three men break down barriers and learn to work as one as they begin to discover there is more to their captivity than it first seems.

 Paralleling the passage of our three heroes is the tale of the mysterious man as he watches from afar. Assessing, sometimes even aiding the three as he subjects them to ruthless peril.

 After achieving the highest honors that can be granted to both scientists and enlisted engineers, Wilhelm encountered great tragedy that sent him into a spiral of apathy. Former goals lost their significance, former pleasures lost their sweetness. In brilliant indifference, he is often accused of working as a spy for the Allies (having a mother of Ukrainian descent furthers their prejudice); Wilhelm sips his flask and chuckles in retort.

 The sharpest rationality cloaked in the deepest self-formed absurdity allows Wilhelm to assess his environment and options in rich detail, while at the same time seem somewhere else completely. This absurd outlook does not impress Jack.

 Troubled by the state of world affairs, Jack saw enlistment as an avenue to fight for freedom. First in his program at San Diego, Jack excelled with purpose and heart. With a little one on the way and a beautiful fiancée, Jack was deployed with steady resolve to fight for a world in which his loved ones would be happy.

 Jack sees good actions as informed by the gut, not the brain. As a result of this, he disrespects authority that argues counter-intuitively through complex reasoning. During the last offensive toward Berlin, he hears his superiors discussing leaving the invasion of Berlin to the Soviet army, Jack does not trust them and thinks this is the start of something he enlisted to stop.

 Growing up in the same orphanage until his adult days, Nikolai was always looked over by prospective adopters. His size, temperament and lack of cuteness saw his loneliness fed and his sadness grow. He used physical activity as his outlet; he would make dummies out of hay and practice fighting them from dusk until dawn – their lack of faces like the blur of uninterested adults that strode through the orphanage’s doors. When Nikolai was almost 16, a new carer arrived at the house. Nikolai heard screaming from the rooms upstairs where the girls slept. He made his way up having grown distrust for the new carer over the weeks. He saw the abuse, beat the man into submission and threw him out of the second storey window.

 Since then Nikolai has seen his strength as a tool to protect others in a world where injustice is unchecked. Although scarred deeply by his experiences as a child, he finds true meaning in war. A veteran of the First World War and many provincial battles since then, Nikolai entered the final push to Berlin a legend; although here he was damaged in a way he had not felt in a long time.


Risks and challenges

Practure is made up of four friends. We've been friends for as long as we can remember. We see LNB as something we are creating as friends, not as business partners. At the end of the day, like most indie developers, we're doing this, not for money, but for the love of creating.

Despite our best efforts, money does have to come into play at some point in the development process. Although we spent out-of-pocket to reach the stage we are at now, the majority of the investment needed to complete the game to an acceptable level of quality comes from you, the backers. It is because of this reason that, upon successful completion of this Kickstarter project, our number one priority will be backer satisfaction. In fact, Alfred Salib, a whole one quarter of practure, will spend the next year of development working closely with backers to ensure they are getting what they expected, and more.

Backers will dictate the direction we take the game, because not only are you our customers, but you are also our investors. We will be listening to your criticisms, and making adjustments appropriately. By working together with backers, we hope to make LNB greater than we ever thought possible.
