Our aim is to sell our game through steam, we are using Indiegogo as a means to increase our community and get the funds necessary to release an alpha version of our project.
We are setting this deadline as we hope to slowly manage independently after we got through Greenlight and manage to have sales of our own.
Here is what we will use the money for:
Survival: Rent, food, and internet to keep 5 developers working full-time.
Hosting: Server hosting costs money, especially ones with a lot of speed and bandwidth. Your money will help keep our main servers going, plus, allow us to provide some dedicated servers for the multiplayer.
Software: Help us afford the essential software needed for moving this game forward.
Multiplayer: We plan to make a robust multiplayer experience.
Single Player: In order to do a proper single player game, you need good quality A.I. We have extremely innovative ideas for improving A.I beyond what you have seen in traditional games, and good things take time to develop.
Music & Audio: We will hire sound artists to compose a full-fledged soundtrack to the game.
Art: we are looking to purchase full licenses of the software and hire more 3d/2d artist to help fill this massive world with the best game content possible.
Attention to detail: We generally don't like releasing anything unless it has undergone a lot of polish. So your money will also go to making everything the best it can be.
We've decided to use Indiegogo because we feel we can only innovate without barriers by remaining independent. We enjoy communicating directly with you and we love all your ideas for the game. This is what makes developing games so special to us, it's fun, it's innovative, we get to share with you, and we feel the need to create.
