Join our World of Worlds, a universe populated by games created by MyWorld users.
With great game play, a mix of game genres and the ability to mash things up the possibilities are endless in this creative sandbox game. You can take any world and make it your own, and with the easy to use controls you can build exciting new experiences to play and share with friends. To start with we want MyWorld to give you the power to effortlessly create these game genres:
Let your imagination soar with MyWorld!
Choose your own avatar in HubWorld, join friends and other players in the games the community makes. Explore quests in fantasy worlds, design and race vehicles, blast your way through sci-fi levels, and even sword fight in RPG levels. With multiplayer Co-Op and PvP modes the fun never stops in MyWorld.
MyWorld is a creative and fun environment, where construction and experimentation will lead to new and wild ideas and experiences.
With MyWorld we've started with the RPG Action Adventure style genre where the game play is of the highest standard. In this realm you can make single player campaigns where you can add in your own story-line with quests and missions, or invite your friends along to play in a co-op campaign and take on the world together. You can also build multiplayer arenas to challenge friends and other competitors from around the world in PvP battles with teams of up to 4 v 4.
We have already developed the main core game engine for MyWorld and we have many of the game construction elements in place and working. This Kickstarter is to take this to a whole new level so we can add more resource to our development.
In addition we'll be adding Racing and Sci-fi genres. Each genre can be seamlessly mixed into your own game mash-ups.
This will add a full racing genre to MyWorld. Including a variety of vehicles, check points, start/finish points, track set pieces and more. Game modes will include single player, ghost time trial and multiplayer races.
We'll create an easy to use race track editor. This top down editor provides a super fast way for you to create race tracks. Just select the road type and draw it into a grid display, add the other features like check points and the whole 3D track will be created ready for you to play!
Vehicles will be open to full customisation. Add new spoilers, lights, wheels and many more mods to make your unique vehicle.
The Sci-fi Genre will bring Lazer guns, enemy turrets, flying ships and alien enemies to the MyWorld tool box. You'll be able to set your game in far off planets and fly around in sci-fi hover vehicles. We'll create alien life forms, wild off-world vegetation, galaxy filled skies and space station construction parts. Jet packs will give your player flight and you'll be able to blast your way through enemy camps. It'll be out of this world!
At the heart of MyWorld is the ability to link worlds together. You can construct multiple level games and adventure through them with your friends. Linking the levels together are these magical portals - just jump in and be transported to your next adventure!
Thanks to the portals you can cross over into worlds created by other users and play the games they've made to be discovered. Any game level can be linked to any other level. This means you can chain levels together to create your own unique experience.
HubWorld is your home from home and provides access to different areas of MyWorld. From this dome of security you can choose your avatar character, watch video tutorials and jump into portals to discover new adventures made and shared by the community.
In HubWorld sit back and watch the tutorials on the BIG Screen experience. Before you know it you'll have an intimate understanding of MyWorld. From teleporting to find new games, to editing and making your own game experiences. Everything you need to know will be here.
There will be a huge choice of characters and we plan to keep rolling them out so you can choose the one that best defines who you like to play as. Fancy a change? Just pop into HubWorld and try out a new character any time!
Found a difficult game portal? Team up in co-op mode with friends or other online players, and play together to beat the game. MyWorld uses the industry renowned Photon Multiplayer technology to create multiplayer sessions between players. This tech is at the centre of MyWorld and ensures users can meet up to create, play and share their MyWorld games.
The first genre we're adding to MyWorld is RPG Action. In these games you will meet a myriad of enemies with varying levels of strengths and abilities. Special skill moves such as stun and shield can be used to outwit some of more powerful and intense enemies.
As you play MyWorld games you'll be rewarded with loot and XP (experience points) allowing you to progress and level up.
Reserved for those final showdowns are the all mighty Boss enemies. Here the Skeleton Boss wields his powerful sword and generates mini skeletons to attack the player.
Each Boss has its own special moves, strengths and weak spots for you to work out and outwit.
On release we'll provide ten games for you to play through and soon after many more will come online as the community starts to produce and share their own creations. The games you make are all played inside of the MyWorld application and are stored on your local device.
We'll be supporting game sharing on Steam with the Steam Workshop features and expect the universe of games to expand massively as users start making and sharing games. When you share games or host sessions of games that support co-op or PvP game modes, other MyWorld users can join your shared sessions and play along with you.
We're making the process of world creation really simple. Just drag and drop objects and they will intelligently position within the scene. There are controls for editing the world's terrain, graphical themes, game mechanics and game settings. You can choose from an ever growing list of game objects including buildings, vegetation, walls, fences, everyday objects, enemies, bosses, NPCs, and lights. We'll be constantly adding to the core items as the product develops and after release.
With one key press you can instantly play the game you are designing, there's no waiting around. Keep making a adjustments and re-run and play until you have the game of your dreams.
We're also adding the ability for multi-user editing. This means you can meet your friends online and construct games together. You'll be amazed at the games and worlds you can create when you have a team of friends to help you.
Unleash your creative ideas with the amazing constructor! Special gadgets will all have connection points that can be used to assemble larger structures.
Button and Sensors generate power and Motors can both receive and generate power, allowing machines that can respond when pushed, rolled or otherwise. All moving parts are created using the game's physics system. We believe this is one of the most powerful and fun features on the creative side of MyWorld. Examples of in-game objects that can be constructed include:
- Moving scenery - radar posts, windmills, water wheels
- Defences - rotating turrets, pressure pad traps, rotating gateways
- Transport - moving carriages, trains, conveyor belts, lifts
- Maker - mouse trap sequences, Heath Robinson machines, fun robots and more!
Using simple building blocks, engines, lights and other cool snap-on gadgets you can create unique elements for your game and play and share them in your games.
Create your own vehicles, structures and devices and then show them off to your friends. You'll even be able to share them with other creators - who knows where your ideas will appear around the MyWorld universe!
Questing is a great feature that we'll be adding. Challenge game players with these quests before they can explore more of your game. Maybe the player has to find an ancient artefact, collect enough coins or destroy an invading enemy.You can have multiple quests scattered around your world, and even trigger new quests to let your story unfold.
Creating game quests will be easy to do. We're designing a gadget that connects together the quest conditions and results.
Earn XP (experience points) as you go. As you play and use MyWorld you will earn progress experience for everything you do. As you earn more XP, new content and characters will be unlocked to you.
This mechanic keeps players and creators engaged with MyWorld and will allow you to become an experienced community member.
With signs and notes you can create stories in your games for players to follow. Add a narrative to your games, telling your story to your players. NPC (Non Player Characters) can be given dialogue to speak to players when they interact.
By combining quests with these story elements, you can create trading missions where the NPCs reward the player after certain conditions are met. Access to a new area of the game in exchange for a pot of gold for example.
With signs and narratives you'll be able to express your ideas, stories and challenges in an interactive game format.
We’ve been developing products for well over fifteen years, designing software with easy to use interfaces. The very passionate MyWorld team understand the game structures and challenges ahead, they've put their heart and soul into this project to date and with your help they'll make sure it becomes a great product.
The Game Creators Management team were a key part of the management at Europress, a leading UK publisher in the 90s. The team were directly responsible for the original launch of the Clickteam products (Klik & Play and Click & Create) and Lead developers for the code blocks software for the very first incarnation of Lego Mindstorms.
As Intel Black Belt Developers The Game Creators have worked with Intel on a number of initiatives. The Game Creators have also published a number of game development engines such as Dark Basic, FPS Creator, GameGuru & AppGameKit. The team has the full breadth of skills, experience and expertise to develop MyWorld to its full potential.
Achieving our Funding Goal will enable us to complete our initial plans for MyWorld, building on the investment in development we have already made. At this point MyWorld will become a new product release on Steam! We're extremely grateful for your support!
If the Kickstarter is a success and we achieve the higher funding targets below, we can expand to cater for these exciting extra stretch goals.
If we hit this target then we'll create a whole platformer genre. Cartoon characters, moving platforms, ladders to climb, ramps to slide down, springs to bounce up high off. With classic platformer game play, you'll be jumping high, collecting coins, solving puzzles and saving the poor souls from the evil Boss enemy.
We'll bring MyWorld to both iOS and Android platforms and ensure you can make & play games across any platform. Start an idea on PC and continue to edit it when on the move from your mobile device.
Our team has many years of experience creating apps for mobile, including the best-selling Driving Test Success brand in the UK. With this experience we can make sure the mobile version of MyWorld will scale down to work great on mobile devices.
Risks and challenges
The main challenge for the project is to ensure the multiplayer aspects work well. Avoiding issues such as lag and a believable and consistent simulation will be vital for the project. We're using Unity engine for the game and Photon for multiplayer; these are both world class middle-ware solutions that allow us to quickly develop and deliver the vision for the project.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
