Who needs bats and balls when you have swords and stars?
We're mixing sports action with a light and colorful world of cartoony ninja players, and pouring it into a PC game using the Unity engine.
In the past month, we've built a well-engineered, playable prototype in Unity. What we need is time and money to get characters and stadium art in the game.
This Kickstarter campaign will help us bring Ninja Baseball to completion.
Each week, we will send out a production newsletter showing progress on the game, and get feedback from our fans when we have a tricky creative decision to make.
After it's released, we'll support the game with free updates, and eventually take it to mobile and social platforms!
Along the way, we're going to have fun exploring the world through mockumentaries and "dramas," all professionally shot and performed. Like this!

About The Team
Ninja Baseball is created by Ted Brown and Todd Booth. We were among the first to graduate from the Guildhall at SMU, a master's degree program in game development. Since then, we've been working separately in the industry for more than six years, but without fat royalty checks to show for it. (just in case you were wondering!)
When you support the Ninja Baseball project, you're helping us get closer to a lifelong dream of working for ourselves, on projects we love, with the support of our talented friends. You're also helping a fun game get out of our heads and onto your screen!
Thank you for stopping by, and thank you for sharing this site on any social networks you hang out on.
Here's one of the Felted Ninjas you can get for a $50 pledge!
