My name is Renita and some friends and I are making a game with the awesome game authoring program called Construct 2 (http://www.scirra.com ). Our game is a fun and feature packed homage to classic platformer games.
I've started a Kickstarter campaign for it that you can see here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/renitao/hyper-segtendio-siblings
The plan isn't just to make a really fun platformer that both casual gamers and hard core console veterans can enjoy, but also to help encourage and inspire the next generation of game makers by showing them how easy to learn and awesome to use Construct 2 is!
We'll not only be making game art tutorial videos, but also videos which show step by step how easy it is to change art, add animated objects and even “program in” new game play features using Construct 2.
This game is going to be loaded with cool classic game play features like dashing, wall bouncing (triangle jump), stomping, brick breaking, grappling hook swinging, fireball throwing and more. The player can swap back and forth between two controllable characters at will, each with some very different abilities. This also lets the other character rest and regain health.
As an extra cool bonus for Construct2 users, we're going to be giving the entire game engine (as well as the finished game of course) away for backers who pledge 55 dollars or more to the campaign.
I've got help from some skilled and passionate industry professionals, like Mark Falcon (rock musician and lead singer of Shotgun Alley) and Michael Parent, veteran 2d game artist, Construct 2 user and co-creator of Spriter.
Thank you so much for taking the time to check this out, and if you like the project, please help spread the word and build support.
