Luckily, as you recapture the Sins you gain corresponding powers!

Greed - Pull objects toward you

Wrath - Push objects away from you

Gluttony - Make more of an object

Lust - Attract two objects to one another

Envy - Pull yourself toward an object

Sloth - Slow an object down

Pride - The last of the Sins can truly consume people

We are High Class Kitsch. Formed by four Interactive Media and Game Development Students from Worcester Polytechnic Institute, High Class Kitsch aims to bring awesomeness to your games!

Jill "The Girl" Sauer is our lead artist, defining Pandora's art style and making most of the in-game art.

Mike "The Ginger" Frankfort is our engine programmer, making sure that Pandora runs as it should.

Ryan "The Beard" Casey is our business guy, making sure people know about Pandora.

Alex "The Commodore" Thornton-Clark is our gameplay programmer, implementing the puzzles in Pandora.

We are nearly done with Pandora. It will be out in June. We need to polish up a couple pieces of art and make absolutely sure every puzzle makes sense, but we also need to cover the cost of all of our software. Also, we like to eat. We need to pay for:

  • A Unity Pro license
  • A Maya project license
  • A year of Adobe Creative Cloud
  • A ZBrush license
  • Marketing & Promotional Materials
  • Hosting & Domain Registrations
  • Legal fees and licenses
  • Feeding four newly minted college graduates (us)

Plus, we love getting in touch with everyone who plays our game! Kickstarter allows us to connect with you, the player, without a middle man telling us what to do.

Risks and challenges

We are fortunately very close to completing Pandora: Purge of Pride! That said, there is always a risk of delay, even this late in development.

We must ensure that Pandora runs on as many computers as possible. Streamlining Pandora should be very straightforward, but excessive trouble with this may push Pandora back a week or two, to a final release at the end of June.
