About this project
From Team Triptych, developers of the Borderlands 2 expansions Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty and Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt, and legendary game designer Allen Blum, co-creator of the Duke Nukem franchise, comes Fuzzy Slaughter: a 4-player co-op beat 'em up rendered in full, gorgeous 3D.
It's a proven fact: the cuter they are, the better they taste. But the test subjects of the PITA! Sandwich cute-meat breeding program have had enough. It's time to bust out of the labs, grab some friends, and wreak havoc on the murder machines.
But PITA! isn't going quietly. They've hired an army of Rats, Armadillos, and other guys too ugly to put on bread. The Fuzzies will need every ax, chainsaw, and flamethrower they find to fight back. Fight through forests, farms, city streets, and across the globe to get to PITA! Sandwich headquarters. Throw baddies into wood chippers. Free your fellow Fuzzies and a host of Sexy Bunnies before PITA! can put them on a plate!
- A NEW TAKE: Fuzzy Slaughter is a classic beat 'em up with modern sensibilities. Fight hordes of enemies, navigate deadly traps and environmental hazards, collect fat loot, and grab as many new weapons as you can find!
- COMBO-DRIVEN COMBAT: Fast-paced, button-mashing, curb-stomping fun. Switch between ground, grabbing, and juggling attacks to get the largest combos possible.
- RAGE!: Fill your Rage Meter to perform deadly new attacks. Throw projectiles, quake the ground, or pick up your buddy and twirl him in pirouette of death!
- UPGRADES: Earn cash money and buy crazy new abilities. Unlock moves like Double Jump, Weed Whacker Plus, and Vampire Fuzzy! Customize your characters to be the perfect adorable killing machines.
$100k: Unlockables! We'd love to customize the Fuzzies with hats, outfits, and other unlockables. Want a bow-tie for Peppie the Penguin? Or a bowler hat for Koko the Koala? Meeting our first stretch goal means that you can!
$150k: Fuzzy Play Time! Want a chance to interact more directly with your Fuzzies? If we meet this stretch goal, you'll be able to pet, feed, and poke the little Fuzzy characters before loading into a level. Of course, their mood will affect how they fight!
$220k: Two More Characters! More development time means more Fuzzies! If we meet this stretch goal, count on two extra characters to join the mayhem.
$360k: 360 Version! Console development is time-consuming and expensive, but if we meet this stretch goal, we will focus efforts on a full-fledged 360 version of the game!
Fuzzy Slaughter began as a self-funded effort, but we need your help to reach the finish line! Meeting our Kickstarter goal will ensure 30 days of additional development to bring the game to a proper content-complete. The money will pay employee salaries, as well as helping to offset software and licensing costs, rent, and incidental expenses such as ESRB certification.
We are currently targeting digital distribution via Steam. Please help us defray costs and bring Fuzzy Slaughter to completion. Your donations are appreciated!
Risks and challenges
Although we have shipped four major franchise titles across three platforms, this is our first IP built from the ground up. Our biggest challenge after funding will be to ensure that we polish the game, and above all, make it fun. Solid gameplay takes time and iteration, but with your help, we can get there!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Fuzzy Slaughter is built in Unity 4.0.
We will be supporting Windows, Linux, and Mac.
Thank you, but we have all the help we need right now. We will post any future openings on our website, here: http://www.triptychgames.com/jobs.html
