When you see this image, what story comes to mind?
When you see that picture you start telling a story in your mind - and when you add music to the mix, that's when things get interesting. Now, play this video and see how music affects how you interpret this single plot.
Adults and children alike use story to make sense of the word. It's how we best store information, make meaning and create shared experiences.
SPARK takes the magic of storytelling and turns it into a game. You can play Spark with friends or the whole family but where the adventure goes is up to you. We are all natural Storytellers, but sometimes we just need a little nudge in the right direction a little SPARK. SPARK gives you the elements of a great story and tools to make it come to life all in the form of a fun game.
With SPARK, you can go anywhere, do any thing! It's like watching movies in your mind.
DIFFERENT WAYS TO PLAY
The Deluxe Kickstarter Edition also comes with various game modes that range from competitive, collaborative, and team storytelling.
OVER 80 PLOTS TO START FROM!
140 OBJECTS TO TELL STORIES WITH
Our Kickstarter backers will get a limited-edition, deluxe edition of the game that includes an expansion pack slot for future additions.
They say a photo can speak a thousand words ... so we'll settle for that.
Ever since my kids were little, I'd play soundtracks as background music and imagine stories at bedtime. It was simply magical. They'd sit on the edge of their beds and watch me unzip the ceiling and transport them to far-off places.
Over time, I'd try this same storytelling technique with my employees on long trips - and I discovered even adults enjoyed the magic of music-inspired storytelling.
At the same time, I had a child with a fatal disease who I'd tell stories to to distract, lift, and inspire his worried heart. I guess I discovered the deeper power of music-inspired storytelling allowed me to take my son out of the hospital without ever leaving the hospital.
Here's a short video summary of the game and what it did for my son.
1. WE'RE CLOSE, BUT NOT THERE YET:
This game is fully baked. The only thing we need to do is finish building out our Android version of the app and manufacture the physical game. That's where your Kickstarter backing comes in.
2. THE MORE WE RAISE, THE BETTER THE PRODUCT:
A strong backing will enable us to make an Android version of the app and help us build an enormous future storytelling universe. We also want to create a tablet version of the app that will allow the Music Master to incorporate sound effects and other ambient noise to enrich storytelling.
3. FUTURE EXPANSION PACKS
As we explored various ways to play SPARK, we accidentally created a ton of expansion packs and new SPARK games, including an Escape Room version, True Crimes, and a D&D-style game with some freaky-fun game mechanics. But, first-thing's-first. We need this first one to be successful. Super successful.
Hey Everyone! We're stoked to hit our initial goal in less than 24 hours. We've now set a stretch goal of $25K. If we reach this stretch goal, all backers will get 5 mystery storytelling cards.
We've got something really cool up our sleeve and we think you'll like them. These will be special cards added to your regular game. You'll love them!
Help us reach $25K and you'll be on the ground floor of an even more exciting way to play SPARK.
We're really excited to have hit our goal in less than 24 hours! We have a few weeks left in our campaign and we're going to work hard to set stretch goals, sweeten the game, and make this an even better experience for all our backers. We'll post some updates shortly.
If you're not a backer yet, please consider backing us. Remember this version of the game is a Deluxe Kickstarter Edition and will not be seen in retail stores.
Risks and challenges
We've done a lot to de-risk this project over the last 2 years. The greatest risk remains is manufacturing - and we've partnered with Craft SLC to manage manufacturing. They've got years of experience fulfilling product for international clients and we're confident they'll get ours done for shipment in August 2019.
Because all of the heavy lifting is done with making this product, we just need to have enough backers to take us to the finish line (manufacturing).Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
