About

After some creative accounting, we decided that we can develop Wubmarine for PlayStation Vita and Wii U with our initial funding goal!


What Is Wubmarine?

Wubmarine is about an intergalactic record producer who is on his way to deliver the latest EDM tracks to Earth's DJs. After passing through the asteroid belt your ship, the Wubmarine, is struck by an asteroid scattering the tracks throughout the solar system. It is up to you to track down the songs and collect them to complete your delivery mission. The search will take you from the icy oceans of Europa, to the fiery sulfuric volcanoes of Io. From ancient ruins on Mars, to a secret Moon base and much more.

What is the Gameplay Like?
Using the computer in your ship you can locate the lost tracks. You then select a song and dive in to retrieve it. Each song is a different level. Each level has a distinct look and feel to match the song's rhythm and mood.

As you pilot your way through the planets you will see glowing glass balls of light. These are the protective containers that hold the notes of the song. The notes are programmed to align themselves so you will notice that the notes appear in 3 lanes and line up with the beat of the song. 

To recover the notes simply position your ship in the lane and collect it with the front of your ship. The container is shattered and the notes are released and collected back into the Wubmarine. But be careful! Not all notes can be collected. Some of the notes were unable to survive the crash. These notes have been corrupted and glow red. Collecting these corrupted notes will ruin the song. Avoid collecting these notes.

You do have another option for corrupted notes though. Your Wubmarine is equipped with a Bass Cannon that can fix the corrupted notes. However, shoot with caution, because you can destroy the regular notes if they are hit with a laser.

These converted notes also charge up your power ups. Every 5 conversions will get you a power up.

Power Ups:
Shield - Protects from one corrupted note
Bass Drop - Automatically Shatters all notes on screen and converts all corrupted notes
Magnet - Draws all nearby notes to the ship
Time Warp - Slows down the song and notes allowing you to collect notes faster

Wubmarine will feature an all EDM style soundtrack. Most of the music will be performed by our in-house musician. However we will be working with local DJs and adding tracks as development continues. Some of our stretch goals will include level/song packs (available as DLC or unlocked in normal gameplay).
Some of our backer tiers include DRM Free copies of our soundtrack. Please note that due to licensing agreements, not all songs that appear in the game will be included in the soundtrack, but most songs will be included.
You can get a sneak peak at some of the songs currently in the game on our SoundCloud page:

            

Wubmarine will be released on PC first. The game is currently on Steam Greenlight and we will also be exploring other release platforms for PC as well.

With our initial funding we can develop Wubmarine on PlayStation Vita and Nintendo Wii U.

We also have stretch goals for other major platforms. We are currently licensed with Sony and Nintendo (Microsoft pending), we just need money to purchase dev kits.


So Who Are We?We are Semag Studio. We are a small team of indie developers based in New Jersey near Philadelphia. There are currently 6 members on the team. The studio itself has only been around for about a year, but each member carries with them years of prior experience.

Why Kickstarter?We want to finish Wubmarine as soon as possible and get it to as many people as possible. That is something that we can only do with your help. We have already put in a lot of our own money, but we simply can't afford much more. Your funding can allow us to take time away from our day jobs and dedicate it to this game. The extra funds can get us dev kits to put this game on multiple platforms. We could finally afford some decent marketing so that we can reach thousands more people than we could on our own.

Risks and challenges

We love this game. We are going to finish it no matter what. But we are still a small studio and have day jobs, so with only part time work, making Wubmarine could take a lot longer or may not hit as many platforms or may have features cut. But with enough funding from this Kickstarter though we will be able to take more time off work and get the game done faster.

We are already registered developers with Sony and Nintendo (Microsoft pending), so as soon as we have the funding for dev kits we can start porting to consoles. So you will not have to wait long for us to port the game.
