Hi, I'm Toby Turner! 

Ever since my mom's dream of me becoming a dentist fell through, I spend most of my time making youtube videos and playing video games. 

As some of you may know Tobuscus Adventures is a web-cartoon about my character, Tobuscus, and his friend Gabe (Gabuscus). We go on adventures and sometimes zombies kill us. We actually made a new episode of the show to promote this campaign ... check it out!

 

 

summary

We Are Making a Game (with your help)!

The game will be called Tobuscus Adventures: Wizards! and in it, Tobuscus accidentally incapacitates a powerful wizard and has to take his place to defeat the Wizard of Darkness!

In the game, you cast various spells of murder doom upon the incoming zombie armada.  To cast a spell, Tobuscus must draw the spell symbol on his spellbook (which is, naturally, a touch-screen tablet. He is a modern wizard).  

This game features fun and challenging game mechanics, as well as cut-scenes animated in the style of Tobuscus Adventures.  It even has a theme song.  Crossfire the boardgame had a theme song, why shouldn't a mobile app?   Here's some concept art:

gameplay

I have a few games I'd like to make in the Tobuscus Adventures universe, and we're starting with a game that I feel is both fun and can be produced and launched relatively quickly.  If we can raise the money, this game should only take about 4 months of dedicated development to get into everyone's hands!

If Tobuscus Adventures: Wizards! does well, we will immediately begin to work on a few other really exciting game ideas.  The goal is to always have a game in development forever, so there's always something new and awesome to look forward to!

Some of you may be asking yourselves ...

"Why is Toby Producing Games Now?"

It's something I've always wanted to do! I love the animated show, and if I could partner with a real game studio to make a game around the Tobuscus Adventures characters, I think we could make something that's both fun and funny.  

I get bored really easily, so trust me, this game is gonna have to be awesome!

It takes more than just an idea to create something as epic as a Tobuscus Adventures video game. There are the game developers, graphic artists, animators, voice over talent, editors ... and that's just to name a few.

We Need Your Help! 

Every penny donated (after covering the awesome donation perks, etc) will go toward the production of this, and FUTURE games. Game production will begin as soon as funds start coming in. If we're able to surpass our goal, we can start production on the next game and more Tobuscus Adventures episodes!

The more we make, the more we CAN make.The goal is to always have something in the works to give back to the Audience.
