Sad Panda Studios wants to make Hush Hush, and we want to make it amazing! Featuring the cast of our hit game “Crush Crush”, Hush Hush will be a branching multipath visual novel, with time management strategy mechanics inspired by games like Long Live The Queen.
The game will feature many characters from Crush Crush but you don't need to know anything about that game to enjoy this one - the story/timeline will be brand new and exclusive to just Hush Hush. Here are a few of the characters you will meet and have a chance to romance:
We have come to Kickstarter looking for the support we’ll need to go big or go home. Our team has already scoped out two versions of the game - a “lite” version that our 4 person studio can tackle, and a “cray cray” version that allows us to pull out all the stops. We would very much like to build the “cray cray” version. To pull out the aforementioned “stops”, we’ll need a bigger art team, a budget for music and (hopefully!) a voice cast, and a runway to devote our full time to the game. Here’s how our costs breakdown, and the stretch goals we’ll need to hit in order to pursue certain features:
Hush Hush’s story centers around adult interactions, and will explore some intense narrative and interpersonal relationships. The final product will be mostly Safe For Work, with access to a more adult version through applicable channels. I mean, the tagline is “Only your LOVE can save them.” Things are bound to get a bit steamy. To reach for the stars with Hush Hush, we’ve laid out all the cool stuff we’d like to build and what it’s going to cost to get it done. You know how this whole Kickstarter thing works!
And now the goodies you can get your Panda paws on!

As you can see, we’ve even got a bit of cool merchandise opportunities we’d love to explore. So check out our different pledge levels, reach out to us if you have any questions, and then support the crap out of us because you’re an awesome and frankly desirable human being. Unless you’re a lovely bear or something, in which case everything above still applies, except that you are a bear. At Sad Panda Studios, we support love of all varieties and variations.
Hush Hush will be available for Windows, Macintosh and Linux. We plan to release the closed beta on Steam first, and will have the NSFW content available through our Kickstarter and on our website if later you decide to upgrade to that. There will also be a version available on Nutaku when the game is completed and out of beta.
Risks and challenges
Sad Panda Studios is confident in our ability to deliver a fun and engaging game. One way or another Hush Hush is happening! We’ve already proven our power level with our other endeavors, and we keep in close touch with our fans on the Twitters. So far we’ve done a ton of great stuff thanks to support we’ve received on Patreon.
What this Kickstarter campaign will do is determine just how big and saucy Hush Hush is. We want to bring on more artists, music composers, voice actresses, and implement a ton of content that would otherwise be too risky or costly for our little studio to take on. This will give us the boost to polish the game to a fine lustre.
In other words - only your love can save us! And by “save us” we mean make Hush Hush just, like, ridiculously awesome. Like, “Holy crap this game is goooooood!” good. You can count on us.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
