Christian Berry seeks funding via Kickstarter for Oozengard, a unique "storycrawling" beat-'em-up and adventure game for Android and iOS.
In Oozengard, players hunt for survivors and scavenge for weaponry in a city overrun by a mysterious ooze. Berry notes that each playthrough has a 60-minute time limit, leaving it up to the player to explore and discover as much as possible before time runs out. Players will be able to use stored objects from previous stories in subsequent playthroughs, however, making it easier to eventually see all that the game has to offer.
The project's goal is set at $3,000, which will fund the creation of a fleshed-out prototype version. While Oozengard will be released as a free download, it will contain purchasable in-game items, many of which are available as Kickstarter backer rewards.
