About this project
Shade is a puzzle platformer game with really fun, addicting gameplay. You play a lost shadow who is trying to find his way back to his human persona. The shadow realm however is a tricky place and you must battle through 20 levels of dark monsters, dangerous traps and hardcore bosses.
Why are you making this game?
I have always wanted to become an indie game developer and i think this is my chance to prove that i am capable - a kickstart for my career! I started coding at the age of 9 and now i am beginning to delve into the games industry with C++ and Actionscript 3.0. The game will be graded academically as well for a college project and hopefully its success will get me onto a computer programming course in university as part of my portfolio.
What are you going to do with the funds raised?
The money i raise on Kickstarter will help me finish the game, hire a sound artist, maybe hire another programmer, market the game and help me through the development process. We can make this game a reality and you can become a part of it too! We have a range of rewards available and some of them even let you design elements of the game
When will the game be released?
The game is set to release around September, there will be content updates after release for more levels but that depends on how much we exceed the kickstarter goal.
I will update the blog bi-weekly at the least, so you can keep up to date with development.
What platforms will it be available on?
This initial version of the game will only be available in-browser as a flash application and linked to the chrome web store - basically to play all you need is a web browser and flash installed!
The game will be developed using a flash game engine called Flashpunk, this is a great engine for platformer games and XML level design.
There are plans to port the game onto different platforms but that i guess only time will tell!
Risks and challenges
The game could take slightly longer if there are technical or creative faults but that would be down to me personally. I am a lone developer and the time given is based on my learning curve, with your support and contributions i could get some help and that would speed up the development process.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
