Hi there, I'm Benjamin, I love making games, But what I love more is telling emotional and beautiful stories about mysterious and strange worlds, over the past 18 months I have been working on Kumo while holding my day job and supporting my family, Kumo's development has become a huge part of my day to day life developing late at night and early in the mornings pretty much every chance I can get. But throughout this development I have seen how much bigger Kumo is, I first set out to develop Kumo so I could tell a story that would bring multiple emotions to each person involved and it has been the most challenging but most fulfilling journey I have ever taken.
And here I am, asking you! the Kickstarter community to help me finally push Kumo to the end and bring a beautiful story for everybody to enjoy, and I will fully be honest getting the funding would be exciting but knowing that a community is behind me and Kumo the whole way is so much more than I could ever ask for.
With a beautiful Soundtrack created by the talented Lynn (Hartman) Yang, The world of Kumo will really pull your heartstrings as you fill up with a multitude of emotions.
So why choose Kickstarter? Yes, it's not guaranteed to succeed and yes it is a lot of time I could be spending on Kumo or with my family or even doing work. But there are many reasons as to why!
- Community: Kickstarter has an amazing thing called a community, which the development of Kumo has always been about from start to finished whether its on social media, in-person or something as simple as an email. I am always guaranteed to get great feedback and amazing responses from each and everyone one of you.
- Money: Yes money, The one thing nobody likes to discuss or talk about but being realistic making a game takes time and to put in that time you need money and this is why funding is needed so I can still support my family, and cover my living expenses and develop Kumo full time.
- Security: Utilizing Kickstarter I can keep Kumo as close and personal to me as it has always been with no issues of another company or publisher expecting anything, as that is how I would like to keep it.
Risks and challenges
I am not going to sit here and say that developing a game comes with 0 risk as that is far from the truth and developing a game alone comes with even more than the average development.
But I have planned each aspect of this game with years of experience behind me, But from start to finish I have had an amazing group of people keeping me focused and advised on when I go off track and get ambitious.
A huge concern is the world; What makes Kumo original, That answer is the world around you, everything has been planned out and the entire story has been written and thought about to make sure you experience everything emotionally exactly how it is supposed to be allowing for kumo's development to go smooth and clean.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
