Smasher Simulator

Your goal is simple: "Be the best."

The competitive Super Smash Bros. tournament scene is one of the most intriguing eSports communities I've ever known. Over the past month, I've been working on programming a simulation about that exact community: "Smasher Simulator." You play the role of a young smasher, dreaming of becoming the best at Melee. This would be a game that would bring attention to one of the deepest crowds in the fighting game community, along with eSports in general. Now I need your help to make my vision a reality.

Why ask for funding?

While I'm able to code the entirety of the game myself, I've reached out to some very talented artists to help with the graphical and musical side of the game. After a while, it was decided just how much was needed to finish the game:

  • $400 is needed for graphics of the characters and HUD
  • $600 is needed for the game's soundtrack
  • Any additional funding past the $1,000 goal will go towards creating more art and music for the game


The main gameplay consists of planning out how much of your day will be spent practicing, researching, working, etc. This is done with an hourly planner system, present at all times.  One will also have to make difficult decisions throughout the game, which will be randomly presented, adding replayability.

The planning and decisions will increase one's abilities to play Melee at a competitive level.

Once you're prepared, you'll be able to enter tournaments and achieve victory! That is, if you've made the right choices...
