Super Chibi Knight on Steam Greenlight

2013-06-17 16:53:50 by BoMToons

If you didn't know, the original Chibi Knight starred my, then 5 year-old daughter as the voice. Thus it became ultra cute.

She and I have teamed up again (she's now 8) to make a sequel called SUPER Chibi Knight!

As you can tell, the engine is up and running and it's about 1/2 way done, and in this one, you can summon and ride BEASTS!

The game is big enough to hold its own on Steam, so we're trying out Greenlight. I really don't know what I'm doing, but I have a dream of seeing a game I've made released to the masses on some kind of console. While Steam isn't exactly a console, it is super-friendly to independent developers, so I hope we make the cut and can then leverage that to something more console-like... maybe OUYA? :-D

If you're on Steam, please consider giving us a yes vote here, I will give you a high five or a hug next time we meet (your choice):

Voted for it. No hugs needed, but please keep up making awesome stuff :)

BoMToons responds:

Thanks man!

What engine/code is it using?

BoMToons responds:

It will be a flash file wrapped in c++ for steamworks stuff.

I loved how she was wearing a Cheat shirt. Good job on teaching your kids about Homestarrunner.com!

BoMToons responds:

Essential childhood education :-D

To be honest, i've been awaiting this ever since i beat Chibi Knight for the first time, it was an extremely fun game, and i hope this gets greenlit, voted!

BoMToons responds:

Awesome! Love hearing this. Thanks for voting!

I loved the original, I think it's absolutely amazing how you're working with your daughter to create this, very heartwarming and I must say she is adorable. :) I thumbed up the project, really hoping this gets on board!

BoMToons responds:

Thanks bro. I don't know what it takes for the Steam people to actually notice the game, but your help is greatly appreciated.

I've been a fan of your work for awhile hope everything works out!

BoMToons responds:

I hope so too. This is largely experimental, but I want to see it succeed.

Zelda references, ho! The first Chibi Knight is as great as Zelda II is underrated, and this looks awesome as balls.

BoMToons responds:

Yes, zelda 2 is the only zelda I really enjoyed. I'm hoping this is unique enough to stand apart as its own thing though.

Good luck!
(I'll be really jealous if you get through Greenlight though.)

BoMToons responds:

Ha ha, I think you deserve to be greenlit. How did your greenlight campaign end up? Any advice for me?


2013-06-18 14:50:11

Looking forward to it! : )

BoMToons responds:

thumbs up!

I've only got 10k votes, and by the looks of it I'll need over 50k... So it's not looking good.
Super awesome advice: Get lots of votes.

BoMToons responds:

What makes you say you'll need 50k? From the stats I can see, the top 100 have between 5000 and 20k votes.


2013-06-18 21:02:58

Well my 10k votes only get me "61% of the way to the top 100".
Not sure which stats you're looking at, but those sound a bit off...

If you're looking at the comparison graph, then that's only showing the first month.

BoMToons responds:

In the stats panel it says the average # of yes votes for the top 50 is 35k, with 62k total votes.

Do you have 10k YES votes, or 10k total?
