  • Variety of Weapons, Gadgets, and Accessories- Grenades, Pistols, Rifles, Sentry Drones, Jetpacks, Railguns, Gravity Boots and cosmetic accessories will give you different options to approaching hostile environments.
  • 3D Platforming- Climb, slide, jump and shoot your way to solving puzzles and challenges in the open-ended world of Wormhole City. Traverse through different districts and levels of gravity to uncover hidden items and secrets. Utilize gravitational force physics to walk and race on ceilings and walls. 
  • Utilize Numerous Vehicles- Demolish buildings in a futuristic dump truck, ride leisurely on top of a floating subway train, take a flying taxi to your destination or navigate there yourself with repossessed vehicles.
  • Cross-Planet Racing- Customize your vehicle and race against rival AI racers in a variety of roller coaster circuits featuring cylindrical, flat, tunneled and branching tracks with different obstacles and terrain. Boost pads, weapon add-ons, and other upgrades will be available for an added advantage. 
  • Advanced AI Mechanics- Face ground, sea, and air forces that can patrol, search, and detect your presence. Destroying or avoiding these enemies will give you different rewards depending on your choices. Combat and stealth will always be an option. Racing A.I have health points and can be destroyed during a race.
  • Immersive Atmosphere- Explore Wormhole City's day-night cycle and violent weather patterns as you progress throughout the game. Some NPCs and bounties will only become available during a certain time of day. Destroy parts of the environment to create new pathways to your goal.  
  • Voice Acting- We plan to have audio diaries, narration and personal confrontations with NPCs in Wormhole City. To help add immersion to this aspect, we will commission experienced voice actors who share the same enthusiasm that we have in this project.    
  • Optimization- Calibrate the graphics and additional options for low and high-end PCs; from administrative workstations to specialized gaming rigs.

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.

Wormhole City is a passion project inspired by a culmination of our favorite science fiction literature and media.With a significant amount of time and finances invested in making Wormhole City, we have programmed the foundation for Metroidvania and gravity mechanics for 3D racing and platforming. 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.

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 and artists who have helped or want to expand on Wormhole City. Online communities have been very supportive in our cause with 3d modelers such as turnpike101, KuhnIndustries, Dneproman, Leonguisti, and programmer Rama from Unreal 4 having helped contribute to this project; 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.

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 early 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 a engaging stories, environments, events and interactions. We aim to make Wormhole City PG-rated and hopefully inspire people of all ages.
