Hi, my name is Keith Anderson, Game Developer and Creator of Numinis Online.
Numinis Online is a Fantasy Based FPS game, inspired by a passion for fantasy action, and the desire to feel quick accomplishments and progression. Numinis has been in development for a little under 2 years now, and with the help of my great friend and phenomenal programmer Jonathan Hockman, we were able to accomplish a great deal of development during this time period.
Though Numinis was originally slated to be in beta by the end of 2012. We were unable to keep the pace, due to real life scenarios. Fortunately, our families support has been tremendous, and we were able to keep the development alive by meeting up before and after work, and in between daily activities.
We have turned to the popular crowd-funding, because we are nearing completion of the game, and we still have some financial requirements to fulfill. We have been able to scrape up enough “out of pocket” funds to get us this far, but we aren’t there yet. We still need to acquire specific licenses, servers and minor hardware / software components to see this project to completion.
Jonathan and I are “true” indie developers. We want to avoid knocking on large corporate doors, instead, we are asking people who really make all this happen. The community! People just like you!
We hope that you become a supporter of Numinis Online.
We honestly didnt know that Game Development would be our ultimate destination. Between us, we have 4 college degrees, and have probably held at least 50 different titles within the job market. From military to retail, and law enforcement to photography... we finally hit home with a passion for game development. Its a unique story and a long road as to how we met and finally began developing, but neither of us will deny that it has been difficult. However, we can honestly and faithfully say that it is a welcomed choice!
Our ultimate goal is to bring the game development industry to the local area of Kansas City. With successful funding, we will have a successful game! With a successful game, we will lead a successful company. With a successful company, we will create jobs, having successful, talented and creative teams, delivering unique games to the world!
What we are asking for...
Funding Numinis Online will be, “a dream come true” for us. We will have the capability to properly complete this project. We are seeking $2500 from the community. Achievement of this goal will allow us to purchase the necessary license required to complete the project in its entirety. In addition, we will be able to increase our server capacity and bandwidth in preparation of beta, leading us into, the “Launch”.
