RAW Kickstarter - A Hardcore Game for Casual Gamers

30 December 2012 - 12:07 PM

Detour Games has recently started a Kickstarter campaign to help fund their upcoming game RAW.


RAW is a running on rails action platformer for Android, OUYA, Desktop (PC, Mac, and Linux) and if the company hits their first stretch goal they will also be releasing a version for iPhone and iPad.




Gamers play through a pulp-fiction graphic novel staring a cyborg juggernaut searching for purpose. The game is set to release early next year, and if it gets enough funding it plans to be a launch title for the upcoming OUYA console. Backers of the Kickstarter get the standard reward of pre-puchasing the game but they also have the option for digital downloads of the soundtrack, a printed copy of the comic book that the game creates, and even a pixelated version of specific backers put into the background of the game.


You can learn more about the game and it's developers through their Kickstarter or the Detour Games website.

RAWdio Contest: the Indie Video Game Music & SFX Contest

We at Detour Games are developing our latest independent video game, RAW, and we need audio! RAW is a 2D, action side-scroller that tells the story of a cyborg juggernaut finding his true purpose in a strange, new war-torn world. He will blast, smash, and dash his way through a comic that stretches six epic chapters!

Here’s where we need you! We are a small, indie team and we don’t have a dedicated sound guy. Instead, we are going to crowdsource all the in-game music and sound effects by offering prizes for submissions. Everyone from absolute amateurs to industry veterans is welcome to participate! All the information, including terms and conditions, general guidelines, and how to submit audio, can be found here.

The contest will go from October 10th until December 2nd, and afterwards we will be hosting public polls to help decide the winners. All serious submissions (whether chosen or not) will earn their creator a free copy of the game once it is released. What are you waiting for? The contest ends December 2nd so get started now!
