About the developers and why we need your help:
Digital Bacon is a 3 man development studio from Toronto Ontario Canada. We worked together as artists in the film industry, and as huge gamers decided to make the leap into game development. However, being far more creative than we are rich, we need help to fund this project. In addition to day to day development costs we need help paying for things like a unity3d Pro license to take advantage of many great features not available in the indie version. We also need help paying for sound fx libraries like the great products available from BoomLibrary.com. We'll also need great music for our game, and we'll need to hire a composer to make sure we can produce the best product possible.
Additionally we want to be able to publish on as many platforms as possible and in as many languages as possible, your support can make all of this happen!
About the Incentives:
Games funded by gamers should be made by gamers. We want your help and input in making this game, we have incentives ranging from forum contribution, providing Beta Tester access, creating game art, character design choices, and becoming your own full blown Bearstronaut character. We want to include you in the process because, frankly game design is a lot of fun, and if you're helping pay for the game you deserve to get in on the action!
