INDI GAME Old School RTS Startup

by David Heary

    We are remaking Empire Earth 1, the classic 2001 RTS that the world loved and then forgot.

    To all those who where not lucky enough to have the first Empire Earth in your life, I am sorry.

    Waring Earth is a civilization commanding game. you must manage everything from your workers, to your building layout, to your military presence in your procedural generated map. Like Age of Empires but on a larger scale, you will find your empire thriving.

    The thing that sets Waring Earth apart from the rest of the world is that we are not re-inventing the wheel. We know that this game is loved by the world, but is very dated. With a polish, and a little bit of our own touches, we will achieve the 4.9/5 stars over and over again.

    THIS PROJECT WILL BE PRE-RELEASED. If you look up Empire Earth or played it on your own then you know that each game you start in a set time in mankind's development. We will start the project in the caveman times, and each age we advance the game, up to space age, will be an other update for the players who have pre-purchased the game in beta. This releasing strategy will also give us time to patch any glitches as we go. (I can provide demos of E.E.)

    This project will be posted on kickstarter, In the efforts to fund the game early and to employ the team full time.

    This project is targeted for the Steam Workshop.

    My part

    I will maintain the project manager position and lead programmer. I have been using Unity 3D and U.E. 5 years now and have full confidence in my ability to lead our team to its deadline and program this project.

    My least favorite thing to do as a team is to Advertise.

    (Expected) Revenue

    Expect the same revenue being produced by other mid level indi game companies. The more we show the world our game, the more people will be interested, and the more revenue we will generate.

    No revenue is expected to be generated up to July 2018. This will be the point that a demo has been released and we can start pre-releasing the product.

    Risks & challenges

    RISK!
    My experience with these projects tell me that people often do not stick with the project until the end. This is a huge problem sometimes, because artists sometimes do not have the same visions or members do not always work as diligently as others.
    This project is very low cost, the server load will not be unmanageable and publishing on venues like Steam only cost a small amount.

    Challenges!
    2 years is a short window for this project, but we need to push to keep this project for fizzling out.
