42 Light Years is a sci-fi video game that revolves around its central character called Quarentino. The most attractive feature of 42 Light Years is that unlike most other time manipulation games, only the parts selected by the players move through time. The players can also select different objects to be moved to different times. The game will be available for Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, iOS and Android.
Huxi Games was started by Sebastian Ibarguen, the CEO of the company, to develop games that would be played by people all over the world. In Guatemala, the video games industry is just beginning to flourish, and Huxi Games looks forward to playing a stellar role in helping the industry grow in this region. Talking about 42 Light Years and their fundraiser, Sebastian said, "We are hoping to get a lot of early adopters to validate the game concept and create a product that users want to play. The idea is to invest our time in a video game that is created by and for gamers. We are truly enthusiastic about 42 Light Years and hope that our backers will be too."
In the recent years, fundraising platforms like Indiegogo have helped many small businesses with successful implementation of their business endeavors. The campaign launched by Huxi Games provides an excellent opportunity for the gamers to take part in the development of an exciting Indie game. Interestingly, some of them can actually get involved directly with the team in creating a unique species to be incorporated in the game. By contributing $100 to this campaign, one can become a 'Species Creator' and share their creative ideas.
All funds received through the Indiegogo campaign will be used to produce the game. A major portion of this will go towards paying the staff including the designers and programmers responsible for creating awesome art, animation and game play for 42 Light Years.
