Plans for Kipos

Hi! I wanted to let you know what my plans are for Kipos. This involves unveiling the big surprise I have for the game, and news you are probably interested to hear.

For several months I’ve tried to gather a team and organise a crowdfunding campaign for Kipos. This was in order to fund the project and to be able to develop it further. However, I failed at finding a 2D/3D Artist, since most wanted to be paid ahead, or they were busy. And the only budget I have for the game is the one I would get from the crowdfunding, so there is no way I could pay them upfront.

Therefore, the only choice available is to develop the whole game on my own, which is actually what I have been trying to do so far (except for the music).

Problem: I don’t have enough free time to develop the whole game on my own. :(

Solution: Be able to stop working as a freelancer to work on Kipos.

How am I going to do that? Creating a crowdfunding campaign so that fans and people get perks while helping the development of the game!

Everything about the full version of the game will be revealed in the video for the presention of the crowdfunding campaign. Here are some things I can share with you for now:

· I’m aiming to release the game for the following platforms: iOS, Android, OUYA and Steam.

· Coins will be only obtained via playing minigames (both singleplayer and multiplayer), completing missions, etc.

· There will be a special kind of currency that will only be obtained via winning competitions, tournaments, and special events.

· I dislike pay-to-win, so it’s something you will never see in Kipos.

I’m currently working on a big project, so I won’t be able to organise/launch the crowdfunding campaign until I finish the work, which will be around October-November.

I will also make (at least) one more update to Kipos for iOS. Sleep bugs in certain cases, need bubbles bug when they start sleeping. I also want to add Cloud Syncing, so that you can play with the same garden in different devices, and a feature to exchange Kipos with your friends.

That’s all for now.

    • airrider3

      There are currently no mini games available, but I’m looking forward to add some.

      • Jthtt

        • airrider3

          Yeah, hopefully when I don’t have to work all they on other things ^^”…

  • Waterhorse

    My brother thinks that the Kipos should have a house

    • airrider3

      Me too.

  • Tomas

    • airrider3

      Thanks! Yeah, I know, but I just don’t have time to work on Kipos. :/

  • Donna Parker

    Don’t get us all excited! Then leave us. Hehee :-)

    • airrider3

      Yeah, sorry, I’m super busy, and I’m working on this alone. >.<

  • Mariana

    Will you work on kipos again. I’m really sad the game hasn’t changed in a long time… I really like it

    • airrider3

      Hi Mariana! I’m sorry for that. :/
      I’m planning to do a crowdfunding campaign this summer, I see no other way to keep the game going on. :/

      • Mariana

        I hope you can do it… This game really is great, it would beba shame not to be finished!

        • airrider3

          Me too, it would be a shame indeed :(

          • Mariana

            Do you know a website called “kickstarter”? It’s a crowdfunding website where people can give money to projects. You should put Kipos there! :)

          • airrider3

            Yep, that was the idea. Either Kickstarter or indiegogo. :)

          • Mariana

            That’s great :) I bet Kipos fans will help in any way they can :)

  • Andrew

    I played Kipos awhile ago and then I forgot I had it.. Then I got back on and it kept crashing so I deleted it and redownloaded it the other day.. I was thinking it would be cool if the kipos could have stripes or polkasdots which can be any color as well. It would be nice if you could change eye color too! Though I agree Tomas, we need another creature!! Maybe something without the tail and has spikes or horns..

    • airrider3

      Hi Andrew! I will continue the development of Kipos this summer. Don’t worry, I have already designed some other creatures. :)

      • Andrew

        Yay! I’m excited! (: well I think you should add some grass and small flowers to the garden floor.. Just to make it look more realistic.

        • airrider3

          Yes, it will be a big improvement overall, don’t worry. :)

          • Andrew

            Who said I was worried x) I wonder what Kipos has in store! XD

  • Mariana

    Any news about Kipos? :(

    • airrider3

      Hi Mariana! Sadly, I had to change all my plans for summer, though for a good reason. I’m currently making preparations for moving to Paris, where I’ll study for three years. Regarding Kipos, there’s only new ideas due a book I’m reading during my commute. I’ve learnt Swift (Apple’s new programming language), so I might make a remake/port with new features. I’m lately not into announcing releases or dates, because my life tends to change easily and I don’t want to disappoint anymore. :/

    Hey,
    I read that you are looking for a 2D/3D Artist. I have a Bachelor in Media and Computing and at the moment, I am studying Master Media and Computing. I know about modelling and animating 3D models, and maybe I could help you with something? What exactly are you looking for?
    Greetings Nora

    Hello! Im so very excited for updates to this game! I read that you’re busy, but i dont want you to give up in Kipos! Even if it takes you a while, i’d love for updates to come! Thank you!

    • airrider3

      You’ll be glad to hear that I recently started working on Kipos v2. :)

      • Snake

        Really?! I’m very excited! Will you be adding more features? :)

  • Andrew

    Hey I was thinking just now while playing Kipos, how cool it would be if the Kipos could meet max happiness or love for their home/owner and once achieved will never run away again! And it would also be nice if Kipos got dirty and needed cleaned, so like a little bath tub or shower accessory or maybe even a place where the player can wipe the Kipos clean?? These ideas would make the Kipos a little more interactive in my opinion.
