Yup, Cosmochoria's success is really inspirational! But also at the same time, very humbling.
I need some honest opinions from other devs and gamers.
This is my current probject, summed up in one blog post: http://halfgeekstudios.wordpress.com/20 ... ck-glance/
Have a look and see if you think its worthy of an attempt at Kickstarter, I'd like to spend some extra time and add lots more missions, systems and put in nice "talking heads" for story mission dialog as well as random encounters.
Also I'd like to remake it with better graphics and higher resolution BGs along with using WebGL special effects for a PC release. So, good potential or its rubbish not worthy of bothering people about?
I love all of it, but the story needs more mystery.
You are a once-wealthy trader, out of luck and in debt due to a calculated risk (and nasty pirates!) that went wrong… Your debtors offered a great deal to wipe clean your debts, but they require you to fly a capable ship before proceeding with the mission. You start out in an obsolete tin-can trade ship, the Nomad.
How about ( after fixing some grammar errors
You - once-wealthy trader, self confident and with attitude, under unlucky and mysterious set of events, have lost everything you've worked for. Ending up in massive debt, you take any job just to pay it back to rebuild your confidence and your company. And it seams that fortunes are turning for you - your own debtors are willing to give you a new ship and send you out for missions, in exchange for your repaying your debt.
Player meets other are other pilots, who used to be traders that went bankrupt, and now are working for the company. But they disappear one by one, and player is being told that they just failed while doing their mission. Then you find out that there are aliens leaving the debt company headquarters. Then the story could make a turn and the player finds out that those debtors are manipulating traders in order to make them their own slaves. And at the end player would find out that the whole debt company is set up by alien traders, that want to monopolize the universe by getting rid of their competitors.
If you like it, feel free to do whatever you want with it
I just came up with it on the go.
