Be part of our marketing team
We’re just about done with the development of an awesome looking and fun to play game called Jumping Jupingo. Now we want to create an equally stunning marketing campaign and we want you to be a part of it.
We want to create oodles of entertainment stuff for you and others to share so everyone can get to know about the game. As part of the team you will not only be able to contribute ideas, follow our progress as we develop cartoons, animation and other fun goodies, and be the first to get your hands on all of this, but we will also keep you updated on how well the marketing is doing.
So, if you want to play a key part in a game’s success story then please read on …
It starts with a horrifying story ...
After messing up their moon’s climate a bunch of bug-eyed aliens come snooping around earth to abduct our baby spiders. The reason? They want the babies to work in their smelly factories to spin super strong silk for umbrellas. The umbrellas are for the hail stones that keep flattening the aliens. Disgusting, I know … about the babies.
In the game you help Jupingo, a little jumping spider, to rescue the babies from the aliens. Your task is made all the more difficult by the locals – a bunch of harebrained bugs, each with its own particular nastiness. You guide Jupingo around the forests, caves and swamps by directing his jumps, and spin elastic silk threads to bounce him onto out-of-reach areas. All that while catching aliens and bugs as well as avoiding acid blobs, storming lunatics, paranoid screamers and some really nasty plants. You can see some more about the game from our website.

Grin, grin, grin …
OK, so we know you would have loved to help fund the game but the game is nothing without people knowing about it. You can still be part of what we hope will be a great success story. We are a small, independent game studio called WAKSTER and we have, over the past eight years, been developing lots and lots of games, characters and apps for our clients. We’ve worked on projects for companies such as Tropicana, Turner Broadcast, Ubisoft and Egmont Publishing. Like all highly creative teams we always wanted to create our own games so we started on Jumping Jupingo.
Jumping Jupingo and this marketing campaign is built on the team’s 25 years industry experience. It is a new phase for our company, moving from doing just client work to developing our own titles, and we hope you will be part of making this venture a success.
You are a marketing expert and you don’t even know it!
We believe the fun and excitement of the game should be taken right into the marketing itself. Press releases and game reviews play an important part in promoting a game but the best marketing is done by YOU – it is YOU telling your friends about it.
Apart from the game we want to create loads of fun stuff for you to get excited about and share with your friends – that’s you being a marketing expert. The game has some great characters so we want to create animation, cartoons, posters and models for you to upload to your Facebook page, PInterest, Digg and wherever else you hang out.
Oh! The goodies!
Here’s what we want to do:
- 3 cartoon animations
- 20 cartoon strips
- 5 awesome posters
- 7 paper craft version of the game characters
So get this: you will be the first to know and share this stuff and what’s more, we will be asking for your ideas and opinions as we develop them. Got a great idea for one of the animations or cartoons then share it with us and you’ll get credited – e.g. in the animation credits it might say: Original story concept: Jimmy Johnson.
Here is an example of the type of posters we will be creating but again, you will be able to share your ideas and who knows, you might get your idea developed.
REWARDS, GIVE ME REWARDS!
Since we want you to help fund the marketing so we can give you loads of goodies to, well, help market the game by sharing all this wonderful stuff, we thought the rewards should be right in there with all the creativity, fun and shareable stuff. We want to give you something you won’t be able to get anywhere else and that is access to our creativity. Imagine this:
You as a paper craft character. Think of it: you can build hundreds of yourself and start a clone war in your bedroom.
What about a caricature poster of yourself as “The Bug Master” hanging in your office? You can have any title you want on the poster. Everyone will have a good chuckle when they see it and you can tell them how you helped make a fantastic game famous.
OK, so give it to me short and sweet.
So, in summary, this is an opportunity to play a key role in making Jumping Jupingo a success story by funding some awesome marketing material. As part of this campaign you will have the opportunity to contribute to the creative process, you will be first in the queue to enjoy and share the animation, cartoons and posters with your friends and you can proudly say that you’ve helped create a success story. We will also keep you updated on how well the campaign is doing. If you help push us over our target amount we’ll just go on creating more and more fun stuff with the money available. If you’re happy and having fun then we’re happy and that’s the way to make it work.
Thank you very much for checking out this exciting project and thank you SOOOOOOOO much for your pledge! Oh, and don't forget to use the Indiegogo share tools to tell your friends to join the party.
