TLDR: Santet Island Disharmony is a 2D roguelite top-down shooter with cute art-style, where every run is a unique experience. Download & try our demo, which will be updated regularly while this Kickstarter campaign last.

Santet Island Disharmony is a 2D roguelite top-down shooter with cute art-style, where every run is a unique experience. This game also aims to infuse Javanese culture into the digital world of video game, such as adapt some Javanese-related element into lore of the game & using Javanese-related instrument (gamelan, angklung, etc) as the component of the background music.

Every run started with a help from 1 random item that you can get from the item box. In this game, the player is forced to follow the movement of the area instead of the camera following the player. As the area move, you will encounter a lot of randomly-generated enemies & obstacles (the formation of enemies & obstacles is always different on every run). You can kill the enemy to get a chance to get another random item to help your way out or you can try to dodge all of them in order to survive. The area will always move until it reach the boss fight area. You will proceed to the next area when you defeat the boss. If you die, you will get back to the square one, so be careful. More detailed information about this game is shown below.

Try the demo version, which include an early level of Santet Island Disharmony, the Forest. This demo include all enemies of the Forest along with its obstacle & boss fight, 49 droppable items, 1 Mysterious Mage (Shopkeeper), & 1 playable character (Sage Apprentice). Almost all of the elements are randomly-generated, so you can play over and over again to get different experience in each run. You can download the demo via Itch.io (Windows, Linux, Mac OS X), Gamejolt (Windows), Google Drive (Windows), or Dropbox (Windows) by clicking the button below:

We've come to Kickstarter to make Santet Island Disharmony the best it can be. By using fund raised on Kickstarter, our team have more opportunity to polish Santet Island Disharmony further more & bring it to the next level of quality. We also want to draw the community closer to the game, by making the players become part of Santet Island Disharmony via the available pledge rewards.

Risks and challenges

There's a lot of risk and challenge that come with developing a game, especially when you try to developing the great one. The main challenge in developing Santet Island Disharmony is to make the player feel the variation that come from randomness element in this game. As a roguelite game, every randomness element must give a positive impact to the game. With over 100 items available in the pool, make all of their effect distinguishable to each other require extra effort. Same issue also occur on enemy & environment randomness, but all of them must be well-delivered because it's the main core of the game.

With all of the randomness element used, the new issue coming up, the balance of the game. It will be pretty difficult to keep all of the item's effect in the same range of usefulness. Some items may better or worse than other items, but we have to make sure the difference is very slightly, so the player won't feel disappointed when they get certain item.

Finally, the last issue on developing Santet Island Disharmony we have to overcome is to polish it into the best quality. Polishing is an another important step to make the players get the best experience of playing. Better polishing of course will need extra time to accomplish. This extra time sometimes means a really long time, which in worst case lead to delays in delivery that nobody want.
