Today, we launched our very first Kickstarter campaign!
Anyone who’s involved in game development knows what an incredible amount of work it is. Painting, pixel art, animation, graphic design, UI design, programming, game design, video editing, writing – the list of disciplines required to put a game like Auro: The Golden Prince together is staggering.
We really believe in this game and the real reason we’re making it is that we think the world will be the tiniest bit of a better place when it exists. Auro is not just another game to us – it’s the embodiment of all of our philosophies and the expression of our belief in the digital game medium. It is our collective love letter to the idea of games.
At least, it will be! But we really need your help. Auro is being made by just three people – Keith Burgun, Blake Reynolds and Ido Yeheili. The amount of work – just raw man-hours that it’s going to take to get it from its current prototype phase to a completed, polished product is huge. We’re hoping that Kickstarter may be the way for us to pursue our passion and at the same time, be able to survive.
Every year, there are some great ideas coming out of independent developers, and there are great productions coming out of large AAA studios. It’s an exceptional situation when one team does both things. With your help, Dinofarm Games can be that team with Auro: The Golden Prince.
