Starting our first official Wii U Game - The GoFundMe Campain

Since our current money ressources are quite limited we decided to start a GoFundMe campain to raise money for the Dev Kit and some additional stuff.
We hope to be able to get at least a bit of support through this, so that we can be sure we have the money, when it's needed in about half a year(since we can "test" the Dev Kit for that time).

What we will use the money for:

  • The Wii U Development Kit
  • A Computer fitting the task of programming for the game as well as producing the art
  • A monitor big enough to easily work with.
  • All the smaller equipment needed for the computer(mouse, keyboard, speaker & co)

You can also receive rewards if you donate:
No matter how much you donate, you'll be mentioned in the credits(Real- or Nickname).

  • 5 - 14,99€: You'll receive a card with a personal thank you message and an artwork selected by us.
  • 15 - 24,99€: You'll receive a card with a choosable thank you message and an artwork selected by us.
  • 25 - 99,99€: You'll receive a card with a choosable thank you message and a poster with artworks selected by us.
  • 125+ €: Limited to 10. You'll receive a handsewn plush from one of our main characters Taiyou or Tsuki(you can choose which) as well as a card with a choosable thank you message and a poster withartworks selected by us.

Amazing News

As of yesterday, 15th october 2013, we are officially Wii U Developers.
We got the mail from Nintendo, registered us as Foresoft, and now we're in.
Now we just need the money for the DevKit.
It feels like you've just beaten one of those 16 meter Titans...

So, what does this mean for the future?
Well, since Monster Leader is a very big project and we got our license way earlier than expected, we decided to pause it and start a new, smaller project first.
Actually, we already started this project, but only idea-wise.
This does not mean Monster Leader is dead, we love this project and we want to finish it, but it will take a lot of time to do that. We will still work on it a little, but our main focus will be the new project.

What is this new project?
I'm not that mean to just say we start a new project without telling you at least a little about it.
The title will be The Adventure of Taiyou-kun and Tsuki-chan. The genre will be Jump'n'Run.
You will get new abilities as you progress in the game, and you can choose with which of the two characters you play a level, both have different abilities and if you want to perfectly finish the game, you have to revisit levels with your new abilities and find paths you couldn't get to before.
It will have over 100 Levels.
I could tell you more, but it would be boring to give all the infos right away, right?

An advantageous win and what's to come

So, today it's me again, mobychan.
Since I won a Graphic Tablet (to be exact a Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch including Manga Studio and Anime Studio) I now have a good possibility to create artworks for at least the important cast and monsters of Monster Leader.
Since our artist isn't with us anymore, every monster and character that got an artwork from her will get a new one and other important ones (maybe even all of them) will get theirs.

Additionally Minami will get a redesign, since her current outfit and style was more something our artist decided on, than the original design I made.
Currently I'm struggling with her hair design since the right idea didn't come to me yet.

I hope to be able to show you something visual soon^^
