Hi guys! With BitF ending soon, I've been working on a few other projects. You all know about Tadpole Treble already, but I'm also doing some of the music for another upcoming game: Nefarious!
This game is all about being the bad guy. The premise involves an up-and-coming villain, Crow, and his quest to kidnap princesses throughout the world...but the royalty don't plan on going quietly! From what I've seen of this game behind the scenes, it's got a great style to it and a really fun premise. The stars of the show might actually be the princesses themselves, a varied and creative bunch that all stand out in their own ways.
Here's a sample of the main theme that I've composed. That's me on the sax!
So clever! How has that not been done before? The only thing I could think of is that the ending of Braid kind of does this but not pushing it to such a level. Love the reverse boss fight idea. Any chance we'd get to play as a miniboss of some sort? There's so many things you could do with this idea.
I've dabbled, or at least thought about making a game, comic book, etc. where we see it from the perspective of the "bad guy." I put that in quotations since I am annoyed by the dichotomy of "good" vs "evil" in general media. It seems to me like you have to be either a cherub, or mustache twirling, saturday morning cartoon villain. There is little in-between when life is mostly in the grey area. Anyway, I digress, I'm getting too deep. I will probably pledge $10 over the weekend.
Right now they're doing a promotional thing where if they hit 15k by the end of the night, one of the backers will raise his pledge by $1,000, giving this project a real early on. Since time is running short, if any of you were planning on backing this, it'd help us out a ton if you jumped in tonight!
Everyone! Listen up! 4 hours left on this kickstarter and it needs a boost! It's just below $42K right now. It could potentially get to $50K with some help. Have you backed yet? Every little bit helps!
By supporting this, you're supporting TriforceBun too! It's a cool idea, great music, classic platforming gameplay with a twist... sounds like a good buy to me!
So by $331 dollars only they beat their goal. Wow. They were $10,000 down at least when the last 24-hours were hit. I did the little I could to help by pledging more and trying to get the word out there, but there were so many others who were doing the same too! The campaign in that comments section to get the game noticed in the last maybe four hours was just nuts. I feel proud of the effort for us all. Selfishly I feel glad I bumped my tier into one where my name will be in the credits as a supporter because I feel like that actually fits more than ever.
Man, that was down to the wire. They introduced a new tier with 15 minutes to go, and that helped bridge the gap a lot. It was also crazy to see how many people were showing up and commenting, watching the time limit. I've never seen anything like that, but it's exciting that it was funded! Thanks to everyone who contributed to this project.
