Crowman & Wolfboy - help this indie game!



This is Wither Studios first game, and we are about halfway through production. Check out our website to watch our crazy video (Tim and Eric style) and links to Facebook, Twitter and our Kickstarter Page:

We need help funding our project, to see it through to completion. Please take a few moments to check out our Kickstarter Page (There are Prizes!). Fan us on Facebook to get updates on what we are doing. Thanks everyone! We hope to bring you lots of awesome games in the near future

Omg the artstyle is so awesome!! Gameplay looks good though the wacky trailer doesn't reveal much.

I agree with LOLavi. The art sold me. The video might turn away potential funders. I understand the silliness factor but the cool art and story is buried deep in the video.

If you stumble on this make sure you do see the art. I look forward to the game.

Thank you! We've worked long and hard on making this game look good. The thing is, the gameplay is still in Alpha stage and we aren't quite ready to show it off yet. Though we need the funding soon to help progress development faster and smoother. That's the catch 22 of the situation.

We've had a couple of other requests to show more of the game as well. So we will be working extra hard to hopefully get a new trailer before our Kickstarter project ends. In the meantime, we will be posting more artwork from the game on both our Facebook page and Kickstarter profile. The art style is getting great reactions all around, which makes us very happy!

Very cool. Well, here is to the project getting the funding. We are thinking of doing a kickstarter for a few side projects in our shop.

The art style reminds me of Limbo for Xbox 360, one of my favorite arcade games, but with more environments. I will definitely be checking this out.

Also, the Crowman & Wolfboy picture is awesome!!!

Very cool looking. The whole silhouette thing has been done a lot, but always looks nice, but it looks like they're going beyond that. Really awesome looking. Hope they make their goal!

Thanks hapaninja! We love the silhouette style, so it was definitely an infulence in design. Our characters are actually shadows though, so it's sort of slightly different
