About

We welcome you on a journey through the stars, beyond this universe, into a world of collaboration with Earth's transformation. Decades of metaphysical inquiry, native teachings, and esoteric studies inform the landscape of THE MEDICINE GATE, a unique blend of science fiction meets science fact. In a world where DNA mutations spread through humanity, causing millions of people to age rapidly and die, microchip implants called LifeChips save the human race. Three years later, we follow a wounded soldier's journey through his darkest memories, bringing him face to face with the Wetiko, a rogue alien race that has long corrupted the human spirit. Through the labyrinth of Earth's memories, and with the help of an implant-free alliance known as the Gatekeepers, he must master his multidimensional abilities, track down the leader of the Wetiko, and release Earth into the Multiverse before mankind is rendered extinct.

Offering insight into the increasing chaos of our times, and the psychology that's informing it, The Medicine Gate offers new perspectives on Earth's transformation. First in graphic novel form, ultimately through multiple platforms, we begin the hero's journey within. We look where the Wetiko don't want us to look. We remember our multidimensional selves.

In addition to the graphic novel, a board game is in the final stages of development. Weaving objective awareness with the subjective narrative of our lives, players move across a game board that contains seventeen positions, each an essential aspect of the human psyche. While you can play solo, there's much to be learned about the magic of traversing the Gate with friends. There is no competition on this shared journey of Self discovery, we're all in this together. 

Also in the initial phase of development is a video game, which takes players into the Multiverse, into the multidimensional abilities essential to defend Earth from the Wetiko. Endless storylines play out on a multi-user platform, where players must form alliances in defense of the entire multiverse.

TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN...WE NEED YOUR HELP!

With the production of volume one complete (RELEASE DATE NOV. 8, 2018), volume two due for release in December 2018, volume three being written, volume four outlined, and five and six clamoring for our attention, this two man team (aka Mathematikoi Entertainment) is calling in the cavalry (aka you) to help us bring this vision all the way through!

Self funded from the beginning, and resolute in our vision to publish this series independently, the primary purpose of our campaign is to fund the publishing, marketing, and distribution of volumes one and two, production of volume three and four, and to assemble the team of experts we need to execute the gaming, web app, and board game components of this multi-media movement.

The rose quartz crystals included in your donation are an extension of The Rose Grid, a worldwide web of rose quartz crystals that has been spread through every continent, at sacred sites, in cities, forests, rivers, and oceans. As a key element within the story of The Medicine Gate, the aim of The Rose Grid is to create a worldwide community of compassion amidst the chaos, peaceful prayers amidst the violence, and a deeper connection with the heart of mother Earth.

In gratitude to our teachers, elders, and everyone who feels inspired to help steward The Medicine Gate into the world, we extend our heartfelt appreciation.

Risks and challenges

The graphic novel series is well underway. We're clear on the first six volumes, and feel an ocean of possibilities for where this series wants to go. The storytelling aspect is covered.

One of our challenges is that we're not gamers, and we've never designed a video game before. We've also never designed a web app or a board game all the way to market. A percentage of our funding, along with a percentage of our revenue, will be allocated to hiring both consultants and programmers in these fields, to functionally implement these aspects of The Medicine Gate.

    eBook copy of The Medicine Gate Vol.1

    The beautiful artwork of Novo Malgapo, coupled with the vivid colors of Aikau Olveira, bring this story to life. For this we are forever grateful.

    In the words a nine year old reader, to his mother..."It was very nice! Good drawings, good story line, rich details and I recommend it to everyone that's into sci-fi and spiritual stuff. I can't wait until the next one comes out. And by the way, who doesn't like a medicine gate anyway?"

    That really happened :)
