Vortex Games Seeks Crowd Funding To Release Tribble Sports (iOS) At Comic Con

This whole “going to Kickstarter to get funding to make video games” is catching on like crazy. The latest to jump on the bandwagon of crowd-funding would be Vortex Games Inc who are seeking funds to enable their iOS title, Tribble Sports to be released by July at Comic-Con. Check out the following press release for details:

Vortex Games, Inc. has started their first Kickstarter project for their newest iOS title Tribble Sports. They are looking for your help to fund the quick release of the game by Comic-Con in July. They have promised to have the game at a booth for your enjoyment at whatever stage it is in, so be sure to stop by if you are at Comic-Con.

Right now though they need your help. They are seeking to hire a programmer full-time so that he can complete the project in a decent amount of time instead of working on it slowly. They have taken the game to many conventions now and everyone who lays their hands on it says only great things, and some will barely give it back.

Tribble Sports is an entertaining game that has randomized levels so you’ll never play the same level twice unless you want to. The game will start with two mini-sports: Golf and Bowling.

Tribble Golf will be controlled similar to most modern day physics launchers and you’ll have your choice of specialized Tribbles to get the lowest number of strokes per hole. Each character will have different animations depending on what happens after the shot so watch for their reactions. The Tribbles themselves make adorable squeaking and purring noises and the music is light and airy.

Tribble Bowling will use the tilt to move mechanic after the Tribble is rolled down the lane. Every lane will be different and will contain obstacles and other such silly nonsense that you will have to avoid. Get the Tribble to the pins and score a strike!

Vortex Games, Inc. has promised more mini-sports from around world if the game is a success so you can look forward to sports like volleyball, tennis, cricket, bocce ball, soccer, basketball, billiards, and who knows what else!

As a reward for everyone who just takes a look at their Kickstarter, Vortex Games, Inc. has included a Windows alpha demo of the game for you to download and test out for yourself. If you like what you see then they would definitely appreciate any help you can offer.

Vortex Games’ Kickstarter initiative is a form of engagement marketing, where gamers are invited to be part of the development/funding process of the game. Now is your chance to get in on the ground floor and say that you helped make the next big success. How many people can claim that now-a-days right?
