About

Hi, I'm Sinclairian, Sinclair Strange or just Joel. I love designing and creating indie video games, (mainly flash ones for the site Newgrounds.) Anyway, I've just recently completed my latest flash game, Sole Gunner. It's a tribute to all those great run 'n' gun games from that 8bit-16-bit era. (Mainly the Treasure games for the MegaDrive/Genesis.) 

Anyway, while designing this little flash game, I kept thinking I really want to make a fully featured title in the same vein. More levels, more weapons, more bosses and co-operative multiplayer! However, the only way I could possible achieve this goal is through funding and this is where this Kickstarter comes in.

Ah yes, the money. Where is it going to go to you may ask? Well it'll will help me set up my studio, I can buy equipment, such as art-tools, extra music software and get people to help compose tracks for the game. I can set up my business and hopefully create more and more fully featured games down the line. I can spend my time working on this game instead of continually freelancing, which wastes the time I could be working on this game with. I'm not asking for a lot of money to help set this project up, but more money I can raise opens up more possibilities for this game. (Such as Android, iOS and Xbox versions of this game!)

So now about the game! Yes. As I said before, this is going to be a fully fleshed out version of my flash game Sole Gunner. (Which appears in the videos and will be playable on Newgrounds from the 4th of December.) With flash, I am limited to size but with this PC version of the game, I can make something truly huge! This game will be a sequel as such and will contain much more bosses, heap loads more weapons, a bigger selection of stages and of course...co-op! The game will revolve around the four gems and a new evil force trying to use them for evil gains! 

12+ Levels! (Depends on how much money is raised if more levels are included)
24+ Weapons!
36+ Bosses!
And Co-op!
Tons and tons of explosions.
Huge Levels to explore.
Different styles of gameplay. (Probotector mode, Bluebomber mode, Sole mode.)
Xbox 360 controller support!
And much much more!

I know £1000 isn't much money to develop a game with. It's the bare minimum I believe I need to make my idea a reality, however more money would be fantastic as it means I could creature so much more with this game. More money raised means I could add extras modes in like, Boss Rush, One Hit Only, Gauntlet mode and so on. It would mean extra levels, weapons and maybe even different soundtracks that could be played through the game. I'll post a list of stretch goals if my initial goal is met!
