Em-8er creates 20-page ‘pitch’ book to sell the game concept

    
14

Mark Kern’s Em-8er project has reached another internal milestone, with the team achieving a few small (and decidedly quirky) goals such as creating an art demo with the THMPR mech and 3-D printing some tiny THMPR models as backer rewards. The team also put together a 20-page full-color design vision pitch book to sell prospective gamers and publishers on what Em-8er is all about (other than revolutionary titling, of course).

The small team continues to grow and will head into its next fundraising phase next week with a focus on creating male and female models. Kern said that interest in Em-8er continues to grow, with 8,300 people on the game’s mailing list.

“All these milestones (we anticipate 3 more or so), will combine to create the ultimate playable mockup of the game,” Kern wrote. “The mockup will include a sample THMPR encounter with attacking Tsi-Hu shapeshifting aliens, gliding and jetting Omniframes with basic abilities, and a frenzy of sample ranged and melee combat. This demo will be used to promote our eventual Kickstarter and future funding of the game.”

I wish them the best of luck, but I don’t see this game getting to launch. I just don’t feel it is bringing sufficient new concepts or kinds of gameplay. Like Jason revel said, firefall 2.0, and who wants to risk funding another version of a game that died (though at this point seems kind of indeed really, zombies can be so mysterious….)

In all the talk of really terrible game names, this one stands at the pinnacle with titles like Erectus. I can handle puns, I can handle just terrible in translation phoned in X of X titles from Asia… but this is just bad. It practically screams that it will be full of “Noob, pwnzorz lol!”

Mark Kern’s dictionary actually consists solely of a thousand variations of the word “thump”.
