What is Crypt Fiends?

Crypt Fiends is a fast paced, first person shooter, with roguelike elements including permadeath, procedurally generated levels, and a unique art style. Taking place in Dracula's castle, you are a lone vampire hunter who's had enough with Dracula's curse, and has taken it upon themselves to enter his lair and shoot their way to his inner sanctum. The game aims to be challenging yet fair, and fast enough to finish a game in as little as few hours

Our three goals are:

  • 1. Design a game that is fast and procedurally generated, so that you can easily play a game over an evening, and have it be fresh and exciting each time.  
  • 2. Be fun and enjoyable each time, even when you lose you'll still gain something for the next game.
  • 3. Interesting artstyle that looks unique to Crypt Fiends. 
  • Fast Paced gunplay.
  • Procedurally generated guns, for different gameplay every game.
  • Procedurally generated levels.
  • Roguelike elements, including permadeath.
  • Unlock new starting traits so each game is different, even at the start.
  • Interesting game changing artifacts that give passive effects to your character.
  • Completely Original Soundtrack.

We are Robot Games, and we are a Father Son duo. Henry (father) is the programmer, and Rob (Son) is the artist. Henry is a veteran of the industry working as far back as the Atari days. Rob is a diehard gamer with an eye for design and a love of characters. We also have a professional sound designer, Kelan, to compose and create all the music and sound effects for the game.

Thank you all so much for helping us reach our goal, and make our dream game become a reality. Without your help we'd never be able to make it real. Thank you so much!

Risks and challenges

Perhaps the biggest risk for us as an independent studio is not having enough money to finish and release the game. We already have the core game and want to make it bigger and fully fleshed out. Crypt Fiends will be finished and released whether this kickstarter is successful or not.

Game development is a challenge. We have shipped games and other software products. Because of this, we have approached the development of Crypt Fiends with these risks and challenges in mind.

We know through experience that unforeseen issues will come up. This is where our depth of experience comes in: our ability to adapt. We have control, without publishers or clients making requests, feature changes or forcing shifts the games direction. Crypt Fiends will come out and we will not let it die before it is finished.
