About

 

Kaapo is an all-new 3D platformer from the fledging start-up of two passionate New Zealanders. We have joined forces to form 'Xorb Studios'to create a truly loved game based, on the country we have grown up in, the creatures that live there, and the friendly rivalry between New Zealand and Australia.

Our leading star 'Kaapo', is a young kiwi bird with a can do attitude who has grown up in the once peaceful land of Zeelandia. He must make his way through the vast 3D worlds using an abundance of special moves like *Spike-spin* and *Beak-Kick*. Players will travel through amazing 3D worlds on the mission to save his mother and avenge his father from General Hugo the evil Kangaroo who came into power and quickly showed his true colours by enslaving and being extremely unpleasant to those who defied him, and in the processed creating an unstoppable army, or so he thought…… until he messed with the wrong Kiwi – Kaapo!!!!

 

Kaapo (Kiwi) – The main character of the story. A young Kiwi bird who was raised in a small quiet village in the deep south of Zeelandia. But after a torturing and life-changing moment he was forced to step up to the plate and take action. We see an ever changing character as he adventures further through the story.   

Akaro (Mum) – Kaapo’s mother; after the devastating moment of losing her soul mate, she was kidnapped and now hidden far away. Missing her son and hoping he is still alive, she is about to be surprised about the reign of revenge he is about to bring down on her kidnappers.

Wayne the Emu – Under the command of General Hugo, he carries out the dirty work that Hugo is too afraid to do. He leads a small army to fight by his side. A fierce enemy that should not be disturbed, especially when he is close to his nest and ready to charge down. Don’t get too close to this one’s eggs!

Egbert (Echidna) –Legend has it he was homeless and starving but after Hugo saved him, he owes his life to whatever Hugo commands. His back is lined with spikes that could pierce the strongest of metals.

Nagini (Snake) – The devils serpent and truly evil. One of the main antagonists Kaapo will find in his adventures. He slithers through the long grass unseen until it’s too late. His venomous poison all but dissolving his victims prior to him devouring them.

Craig (Possum) – The Possum is a master blacksmith. Craig can make you anything from a simple weapon or trap to massive armour sets. You might be able to take a few extra blows if you come across this one.

Rewera (Thorny Devil) – This spiky creature is not to be messed with. His mighty stomps shake the earth stronger than an earthquake. Watch out for falling rocks as he makes the earth crumble around him.

Rachael (Lioness) – She has come all the way from Africa, with her potions and voodoo magic she can heal any wounds that need to be fixed. Find her on your journey and you will sure to live a longer and more prosperous life.

Kevin the Koala – Hugo’s right hand man; don’t judge a book by its cover, this cute and fluffy exterior may fool you. He has more evil in each strand of hair, than most have in their whole body. This one will be a hard won battle.

Don’t worry! There are many, many, many more characters that Kaapo will come across on his adventures. You might have to have a photographic memory just to remember all of them. We can’t wait for you to meet them all! 

Abilities – Kaapo and even the bad guys you will meet on your journey have a huge arsenal of abilities. The game will be forever changing with the amount of abilities that are available.

Characters – We have a wide variety of characters. Many characters with very different backgrounds and stories, you will get lost in the lore of their lives.

Collect them – Through out Kaapo’s adventure he will find many Kiwi Fruits to collect, which he can then use later on for many things. You will have to collect them as you go to find out what you can do with them.

Easter eggs – Kaapo will have more Easter eggs than you can count!

 The Xorb Studios team assure potential backers that if we can achieve our Kickstarter funding goal we will produce a dynamic, exciting, and challenging game package. To begin with, Kaapo will be released for Windows, Mac and Linux. As funding allows we will hopefully release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Wii U. We are reliant on this Kickstarter campaign and your generous support for the successful development and release of all of this.

We would love to satisfy all of our potential Kaapo backers and in the perfect world deliver on all of the above from day one. But it is more realistic that we will release on the various platforms as per funding and resources allow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Why so Cheap?

- We understand that not everyone is rich and that you want a high quality game that isn’t expensive and that will be made within a reasonable time. We are not even getting paid for making this; we are doing this out of the goodness of our heart, how sweet of us. We have invested a lot of our own money but we can only go so far doing this. With your little contribution it will make a HUGE difference and help the community to get a great game.

Why so Expensive?  

- Expensive… far from it actually. We are not even getting paid from this funding. We are just simply trying to make a game that is perfect for everyone to play, so that they can stop searching far and wide for a game that has been right in front of them.

Why Kickstarter?

- Kickstarter is such a nice community with very nice people and we think that you guys will love what we have to offer. You help us and we can help you.

Risks and challenges

Here at Xorb Studio's, there are some risks involved in creating Kaapo and getting it done in time for everyone to enjoy. The main risk behind this is, that Xorb Studio's is a small team, which means there is a high amount of workload for all of us here to get it done. However, in saying this, we are hard working, determined and we are prioritizing Kaapo so that it does get done. So have faith in us and we will present you a game like no other and we will get it done at an amazing standard.
