We've come to Headtalker to ask for your help in order spread the word about our Kickstarter Campaign launching on the 27th February for our game, Failure.
Failure is an Real Time Strategy Game, but not in the traditional sense. We've combined elements from traditional RTS, Collectable Card Games, God Games and Tower Defence games into a neon infused cyberpunk strategy game that brings several layers of innovation to the table while still having many of the qualities that a true strategy gamer will crave. The narrative for Failure is being written by Antony Johnston, writer of acclaimed comic series Wasteland as well as games such as Dead Space, Binary Domain and ZombieU.
Our aim by coming to Kickstarter is to fund the elements of the game that our own 25+ years worth of games industry experience doesnt quite cover - things like artists and a writer.
We have these people lined up, people like Ryan Klaverweide, Ui Artist for Bungie working on their Destiny team and who previously worked onone of their other projects within their graphic design team and who is now planning on working for us as a freelancer and Antony Johnston, New York Times bestselling author of graphic novels, videogames, and books. Antony's graphic novel The Coldest City is being adapted into a film starring Charlize Theron. His epic series Wasteland is one of only a handful of such longform comic stories in the medium. His first video game, Dead Space, redefined the survival horror genre, and he has since worked on many other games, including LOTR: Shadow of Mordor, Binary Domain, and ZombiU.
We've already got them working on elements of the game in preparation for the Kickstarter, but in order for us to continue working with them and ultimitely create the highly polished game that we envision we need your help. So please, support us here by pledging your support via the social networks. Once the campaign goes live, head over and take a look and ask us some questions, check out the cool rewards and back us!
