BIG VIKING GAMES’ KICKSTARTER GOES BEYOND CROWD-FUNDING WITH INDUSTRY FIRST, PLAYER CO-CREATION FOR TINY KINGDOMS

 

London, ON – September 12, 2013 – In Big Viking Games’ Kickstarter project, players are now part of the production team. The company announced today the launch of a unique Kickstarter campaign to help fund Tiny Kingdoms, a free-to-play RPG adventure game for mobile and social platforms. Instead of traditional rewards for backing the game, players who support the Kickstarter project will have unprecedented access into and influence over the game creation process of Tiny Kingdoms.

The Kickstarter project is the first of its kind to offer free-to-play gamers the opportunity to help craft and influence the vision and direction of the game by working with the games’ designers before, during and after the launch. Backers will be able to provide their ideas and feedback on a wide range of game components such as new characters, environments, items, features, and new tactical gameplay modes. To help players become a tight-knit part of the development team and to provide rare insight into the creation process, the Big Viking Games team will host live chats, provide designer diary updates, and conduct polls throughout the development process. The feedback will start once the game reaches beta and will continue past launch as the game continues to evolve and grow.

“We are giving fans the opportunity to leave their mark on the game and build the game they want to play,” said Albert Lai, CEO of Big Viking Games. “We want our fans to be go beyond just pledging their dollars to also lend their ideas and creativity. The ultimate goal will be to reimagine the way players interact with game developers, through both Kickstarter and collaborative online platforms.”

In Tiny Kingdoms, players will take on the role of an adventurer on a quest to defeat deadly creatures and prove their worthiness to be the next ruler of the kingdom. To do this they must fight through hundreds of strategic battles and conquer insurmountable odds. They’ll need to choose a tactical team, craft items and weapons, and find amazing loot to strengthen their warriors. The gameplay will consist of battles with powerful enemies that will rely on tactical strategy, item and weapon crafting, and amazing loot. The game is built using HTML5, which is an industry leading development tool that allows for seamless cross-platform development. This will allow players of Tiny Kingdoms to seamlessly play across various devices, such as starting a game on Facebook and continuing where they left off on their mobile device. 

The Tiny Kingdoms Kickstarter campaign will go live on September 12th. To learn more or to contribute to the campaign, visit  http://www.bigvikinggames.com/tiny-kingdoms-kickstarter/
