Wolfgame presents miniFlake: a Retro 1bit RPG! Started 3 years ago as a simple 1 week challenge and evolved into labor of love. Featuring amazing 1bit graphics, lcd handheld screen effects, retro 8bit sounds and music, miniFlake is destined to lure you into it's deep dark crypts. Relying heavily on procedural generation algorithms, each time you play the game specifically taylored just for you. Everything from villages to npc's, dungeons to weapons, no two games will be the same! You stroll into a new town, full of hopes of grandeur as you've just finished your initiation task into the infamous Crawlers Guild of dungeon raiders. As you make your way to the local Inn, you look about for anybody you might be able to get information from. After asking around, you discover the whereabouts of a local dungeon where it's said that treasures await anyone willing to brave the depths. Here is where your journey begins.

My name is Wolfgang Wozniak. I'm the creative director for Wolfgame. We've been working on games for the past 5 years and are just now finding our footing in the industry thanks to things like Desura and companies like Playstation. We're a small team of 3-5 people (depending on the project!). We're currently working on a few games for PC, PS Vita, Nintendo and a next-gen device. We released Magic Planet Snack Deluxe for Playstation Mobile/PS Vita and miniFlake Alpha in 2013.

For those of you in a creative industry, you know that you can't make money until you put on the play, release the album, or finish the game. We are always developing the next thing, but need your help to grease the gears in order to make releases more timely and of higher quality.

Here is an example list of projects that you would be directly benefitting with your patronage:

  • miniFlake (PC, Ouya)
  • Golden Nights (Playstation Mobile / PS Vita)
  • Additional Vita ports like Gyossait
  • Several Unannounced PS Vita, PC, Wii-U, & 3DS games

miniFlake is a totally mod-able rogue-like game set in the SilverQuest universe. miniFlake is a dungeon crawler in the classic tradition of pen and paper games, as well as games like rogue. The art style is two colors to evoke old Player's Handbooks, Monster Manuals, and other black and white roleplaying game rulebooks.

The game also exposes all gamedata in an external folder called xData. The files in this folder include
Monsters
Armor
Weapons
Books
Biomes
Layers
Crafting Materials
Rings
Paintings
Instruments
Potions
Spells
Quests
NPCs

…and a lot more.
The goal is to create the largest object library of any game in its genre, while allowing players and modders to quickly and easily add their own content extremely quickly. Have a friend who made their own mod-pack? Just replace the data in the folder, and you're ready to play in their custom game world!

Golden Nights is a character-action platform game rendered beautifully by artists Conley Smith and Jackson Lango with a soundtrack by the talented André Colares. Using traditional Arabian art, colors, and sounds we hope to evoke and explore ideas not usually done in games. We're very excited about the project, and look forward to talking more about it in the next few months.

Other Projects include an Arcade Puzzle game, a score-attack First Person Shooter, Visual Novel ports to portable systems, an Arcade Sports game, an a stylish Twin-Stick Adventure game.

With your help we can make this happen. We thank you for your time and consideration in participating and funding game development and The Arts. We'll conquer this labyrinth together.

Hello, I absolutely love the way the game looks, though I don't really know much about the gameplay such as: How many hours of expected gameplay wil lthere be, how many levels are there, is there a level cap, does the game end without death, is there perma death, ect.

I love roguelikes and dungeon crawls so when I get more info I'm sure you got my buy.

Well i do not plan to have permadeath in the game, it will be a gameplay style much more similar to diablo in that aspect. I'm not sure yet what my level cap will be but i'll set it pretty high. as for the hours of gameplay, i'm hoping to have a really large number of hours, and really huge land and dungeonscapes. I'm also hoping to have an open ending so that you can continue to play even after beating the last dungeon.

Would you consider a permadeath hardcore mode as an option to pick on game start?

It picked up later, must've been traffic.

I like the game, can't wait to see it all filled out with content in the future.
