About this project

RUMBLE ROAD is a game about leading a ragtag group of wrestler hopefuls across the country in an attempt to make it big enough to gain entry into the event of the year. 'THE RUMBLE'

The game begins with a pair of wrestlers, a car, some cash, and a dream. 

Manage your wrestler's various needs, personality quirks, finances, and training as you embark on a road trip across America.

As you make stops to eat, sleep, train, earn, and wrestle, keep an eye out for others who may want to join you on your quest.

Before setting up your matches, take into consideration each wrestler's relationship to one another.

Pick the wrestlers you'd like to perform against each other in shows!

Set up the performance using the techniques your wrestlers have trained in to put on the best show possible!

The announcers will then give you a play by play of your wrestlers executing your show! Gain experience and build relationships to put on bigger and better shows to gain the fans you need to be eligible to perform in THE RUMBLE!

Disclamer: 'Rumble Road' is not a 'League of Heels' branded game

REWARDS

 The Game ($15) - Copies of the game will be digitally available. Ideally the game will be available through Steam but there are now multiple services that could potentially be used to distribute the game. The primary platform will be Windows but the game is being developed using Unity so once that is done, I can port the game to Linux and Mac OSX without too much difficulty.

 Digital Soundtrack ($30) - Music and SFX in the game is being handled by the talented Hamst3r of The Hamster Alliance. The full OST will be included in the download in digital form. Jobbers and above will also be included in Rumble Road's credits

Crowd Sign ($100) - I will work with you to make a 17x10 pixel sign that will be held up by NPCs in the crowd at wrestling matches.

NPC Character ($300) - I'll create an NPC character using your likeness and name. This character will be in the pool of NPCs that the game pulls from whenever an NPC is needed for various side quests, shops, dialog, etc...

Wrestler Character ($600) - You create a persona and I'll put them into the game as a playable wrestler. Let me know their likes, dislikes, personality traits and the type of wrestler they are and players will be able to recruit them just like any other wrestler!

Sponsored Location ($1000) - Do you have a brand you'd like to promote? Or just want a specific location to exist in Rumble Road? I'll work with you to create a location of your choosing with you. Whether it's a gym, garage, house, arena, restaurant, inn, you tell me what you want and we'll make it happen!

WHY KICKSTARTER?

I've been working on Rumble Road in my spare time for almost a year now and have gotten it to a point where I know it can be a great game. What I need now though is some help. Primarily with the UIX, audio, and creation of art assets. These things cost money and that's where kickstarter comes in. I need your help so I can pay people for the work I need them to do to finish this game. After deductions from Kickstarter, Amazon, and taxes (roughly 35%) I'm asking for just enough to get me the help I need to finish this game. I don't have stretch goals because I know the game I want to make, and I know what I need to make it. If this kickstarter does end up being more successful than I'm hoping for, that will allow me to hire more help to polish the game to a brilliant shine!

 Here's how the money will be spent in the form of a pizza.

Risks and challenges

Making a video game is an incredibly difficult process and games can fail at any stage of development and at any scale of production from a tiny team to a giant development studio with hundreds of people. While I plan on using the money from kickstarter to hire on some helping hands, the weight of Rumble Road's creation rests on my shoulders alone. If I fail, Rumble Road fails.

However, I am confident that I can overcome the challenges ahead in Rumble Road's development. Prior to beginning work on Rumble Road, I built and released a game on Android and iOS called 'Treads!'. Through this experience, I've learned a lot about the difficulties of game development and with its completion and release, have also learned that I can follow through on a project to completion. I have put a significant amount of work into developing Rumble Road and have refrained from coming to kickstarter until I was confident in both my ability to complete it and that it will be an enjoyable and unique game that people would enjoy playing.
