Dying to Live
Who are you ?
Hi, I’m Jake Birkett and I’d like to apply for the Indie Dev Grant for my game Dying To Live.
What project will the Indie Dev Grant be helping you complete?
Dying to Live is as puzzle platformer in which you have to kill the player character in order to progress through the levels. It’s written in Monkey so can be built as Flash, HTML5, PC/Mac executable or mobile app! I started this game at the Full Indie game jam in Vancouver in summer 2012 and since then I’ve moved my family back to the UK from Canada which has left me very skint. Anyway, I really want to spend some more time on the game to add in more features (water, fireballs, enemies, doors, buttons etc.) and a whole bunch of levels. Then I want to put it on some Flash portals and maybe even get some sponsorship for it. If things go well I can make an expanded version for multiple platforms or use the platform engine for another game. Getting the Indie Dev Grant would really help me to achieve this goal.
