THE INTRODUCTION!

Hello! Here’s where we’re at: a group of five passionate and highly-experienced video game developers have come together to make a game of their very own. We’ve made good progress, and it’s all really promising, but we need to gather some funds to hire another programmer for a while to get us to the finish line, then use any additional funds to polish and market the game. And for this, we need your help!

THE GAME!

The game we’re making is 'Tasty Tasty Grandpa', in which you start as a baby and eat people older than yourself to survive and grow. As you grow older, there are less people older than yourself to eat, and more and more young whippersnappers who just want to eat you. Your goal is to become a grandpa and die with dignity instead of dying as dinner. It’s sounds a bit unsettling, but it’s actually fun and cute and it’s all done in the best possible taste; just check out those cute characters in the video!

THE PLEA!

'Tasty Tasty Grandpa' will initially be made for iPhones and iPads, and we hope to bring it to more platforms if everything goes well. For now, we have hit a wall in development. Our awesome programmer, Stu, has a full time job and a new baby, and just can’t squeeze in the free hours like he could. ‘Spare time for free’ isn’t going to get this project finished, so we need to raise funds to hire a programmer to work solid hours and make our game a reality.

THE EXCITEMENT!

We’re so excited about our game, and we’ve poured a lot of hours and a lot of heart into getting it this far… if you can spare some funds to help us finish the game and get it into your very own hands, we’ll be genuinely grateful and considerably happy! Rewards and funding tiers* are all over there on the right to hopefully make it worth your while.

Thanks for taking an interest in our game!

Sincerely,

Craig (game designer)


* THE ‘TUCK A BUCK AWAY’ CONCEPT!

Note that all the funding tiers are $1 less than a nice, round number. This is so you can keep that $1 aside to buy the game on release! The game isn’t included in the rewards for a bunch of reasons, but mainly because we’d have to gift it to everyone (and we only get a handful of gift codes), which drains the funds and also forbids you from leaving a review on the App Store, and we’ll really REALLY need your positive reviews, if you like the game! Thanks for understanding!

Note: Pozible accepts international pledges, and the Grandpa team completely welcomes them!
