Latest Ponapocalypse Public Version

Ponimax Studios is a small group of people that love gaming and game development.  We will be making games that are exclusively furry.  That is to say, humans will either not appear in our games at all, or will take a secondary role.  Instead, most characters will be various forms of anthropomorphic animals.

What kinds of games will you be making?
The current team is partial to the Action, RPG and Simulation genres, so you can expect those kinds of games for our first few projects.  We're aiming to make games that are highly immersive, fun and replayable.

How will I be able to play your games?
Our game demos and alpha builds will be playable for free here on Patreon.  The finished games will be released on Steam.  Updates to the demo will continue to be released here in the same manner.

What are you working on right now?
Ponapocalypse, our very first project, is a hybrid combination of RPG mechanics and fast-paced, side-scrolling action.  The game is currently being developed for the PC, Linux and Mac.  Other platforms may be considered later in the development cycle.

Features will include:
  • Single Player Campaign - Delve through a rich story, set in a post-apocalyptic world full of danger and survival challenges.
  • Hardcore Mode - If enabled, you will have to start over from the beginning when you die.
  • High Definition 2D Graphics - None of that pixel-art stuff here.
  • RPG Elements - Inventory, barter, stats, skills, magic and much, much more.
  • Crafting - Make everything from ammo to weapons of doom!

Why should I give you my money?
Our first project is still in it's earliest developmental stages, but it is constantly growing and changing.  With your support we hope to devote as much of our time and attention as we can to making it the best possible game it can be.

So far we have been able to do some pretty cool things with the free development tools and limited time available to us, using limited personal savings for each of our individual developer costs. However, with enough patrons, we could really begin to develop our projects full-time, and even think about growing our team.  This would greatly accelerate the development process and see the completion of projects much sooner than currently projected.

People who pledge will get access to every semi-stable build we make.  Free public releases will be made with major/stable builds, usually around one month behind what you get.  In time we want to setup some kind of voting system to allow our patrons to guide the development direction of our projects, as well as other ways for you to take part in the game-creation process.

Will I be able to get a free copy of the game if I contribute?
Any donation tier that has the *Pre-Order Accumulation tag will go toward a running total.  If your total meets or exceeds the retail price of a project when it is completed, you will get a free copy on release day.

How often will I be charged?
Because we intend to release updates frequently, we have chosen to use Patreon's monthly model.  That means no matter how much content we post, you will only be charged once per month.

How can I stay up-to-date on your activities?

Active patrons will get updates emailed to them (depending on your Patreon settings) as soon as they are posted.  You can also subscribe on Facebook where we will be posting a general stream of "What we're up to" activity.  We are also considering other forms of social media, but for now we feel that having to administrate too many pages would take away too much from development time.

Big Thanks for supporting us!
You'll also get access to every semi-stable update as soon as they're made. Updates could be anywhere from once a week to nightly depending on what milestones we've hit. There should be at least one "major" update per month, and you'll get that up to a month earlier than non-patrons!

In addition to the previous tier, starting from this tier onward your donations will be added to a running total during the development cycle.  When a project is finished, if your total meets or exceeds the retail price, you will receive a free copy.

*Pre-Order Accumulation
Pledge $25 or more per month
0 patrons
In addition to all previous tiers, you'll also get access to concept art, storyboards, original music tracks and any other "super special" content we can find for you to enjoy.

(Please note that at this time most of the assets are very basic / community-made and as such there is very little to gain at this tier)

*Pre-Order Accumulation
Pledge $50 or more per month

In addition to all previous tiers, your name/handle will be added to the in-game credits screens as a "Contributor" and you'll get to add a short message (within reason), plus a clickable link.  You will also receive a free copy of the game on launch day.

*** (See previous tier note)
Goals
$5 of $1,500 per month
We'll be able to purchase software licenses for code, art and animation tools, game engine upgrades, better web/file hosting,  and more.  Anything left over will be distributed among the team to help delay starvation.
