Zenrok Studios LLC is a company founded in 2014 by two professional game designers with specialties in graphic design, programming, teaching, and music. We have years of experience with Game Maker, Unity and now Unreal Engine 4, Zenrok Studios' ultimate aim is to make games that are educational and appealing to all ages. Before creating Zenrok Studios we volunteered and have been commissioned independently in South Korea and the United States to help employers with artistic assets, game design, community management and marketing. 

While designing Wormhole City, we have been involved with a development team of an upcoming asset to the Unreal 4 marketplace and achieved in creating a first-person demo with Oculus Rift compatible gameplay, available to download here:

Wormhole City is a passion project inspired by a culmination of our favorite science fiction literature and media. In our current financial situation, we are having exponentially less time to develop this project to focus on making ends meet in our personal lives. Achieving our funding goal would allow us to have the time to complete Wormhole City with extra 3d art, animation, programming and content features.  

By funding Wormhole City you are giving the opportunity and freedom for independent designers to pursue a chance in making their passions a full-time career. Extra funding will go towards programmers, voice actors and artists who have helped or want to expand on Wormhole City. All contributors and backers will be recognized in Wormhole City's in-game credits. Wormhole City will launch on PC with Mac and Linux releases shortly after. With our stretch goals we hope to bring Wormhole City to consoles in the near future.

 Wormhole City is planned to release on PC, Mac, and Linux by late 2016. All additional funds will go towards the development, coding, design, art, audio, reward fulfillment, and quality assurance of our game along with the following:

Risks and challenges

Having developed most of the programming foundation ourselves, the next most time-consuming aspects will be level design in our game while maintaining an efficient workflow to expand on gameplay mechanics and added nuances. With a release date in December 2016, we are confident we can deliver a polished and satisfying adventure game with features that will be unique in the current gaming market today.

As a small studio of two local game designers, we are self-sufficient in many vital aspects of video game development. With your help we hope to commission extra artists and programmers who want to contribute to Wormhole City and decrease the production time needed in creating engaging stories, environments, events and interactions. We aim to make Wormhole City enjoyable and inspiring for a Teen audience.
