TinyKeep is a 3D dungeon crawler for Windows and Mac, currently under development by programmer Phi Dinh. The game was originally inspired by classic roguelikes and RPGs such as Rogue, NetHack, Ultima IV, and boardgames like Hero Quest. Since it's inception, the game has taken on a life of it's own, dragged kicking and screaming into a new age - where terrifyingly intelligent monsters haunt the beautifully lit corridors of TinyKeep's dungeons.
In essence, TinyKeep is a 3D realtime Action RPG, focusing on exploration and combat. At its heart is a sophisticated AI system, designed to produce unique monster intelligence that behaves in exciting and unpredictable ways. Phi Dinh wanted to create a game that feels alive, where the dungeon's inhabitants have their own motivations and needs, and situations are created that have never been seen before in a game of this genre.
Accomplishment of the funding goal will allow the team to create the most basic core version of TinyKeep. Phi Dinh has been in the software development industry for over 6 years and is well aware of the risks involved in an ambitious project such as TinyKeep. This is why a prototype or "proof-of-concept" was developed prior to the Kickstarter.
The prototype has allowed the team to evaluate the technology required, make sure all the proposed features are feasible and it has helped us estimate time and costs much more accurately. Also included in the funding goal are the costs of creating and shipping the rewards.
