Caravaneer 2 is the second part of a free browser-based post-apocalyptic RPG game with trading elements and turn-based battles. You can play the first part here: http://www.gamesofhonor.com/caravaneer
The game has several aspects:
- Transporting goods between towns and dealing with economy
- Fighting bandits who try to rob you
- Story and dialogues which involve all other aspects and more
The second part is planned to be much bigger than the first one. It'll have better graphics, a bigger story and a whole lot of new features, such as slavery, morale, a possibility to own businesses etc.
Dmitry Zheltobriukhov, the author of this game has been in browser-based games business for almost 10 years now. He's responsible for the creation of a dozen of Flash games and two game sites: Sugar-Free-Games.com and GamesOfHonor.com
This is a one person game and there will not be many expenses, except, maybe, for music and a couple of other small things. However, this game is relatively big and the only person working on it needs a lot of time to finish the project. He needs to receive some sort of salary duing this time, and that's what the money will be spent on. It's hard to tell how much money is needed exactly. The more will be raised, the more time I will have and the better the final product will be.
Even though some people think of crowdfunding as some sort of selfless donation, it's not exactly true. Contributors receive valuable rewards in exchange for their money. In the case of Caravaneer 2, all rewards are absolutely unique and there's no other way to receive them other than helping with the game development. It's an excelent chance for Caravaneer fans and game enthusiasts to lay their hands on some exclusive stuff.
