Help Kickstart LaQuisha’s Odyssey

LaQuisha’s Odyssey computer game is one of the first New Zealand projects to hit global fundraising platform Kickstarter. A mash-up of old-school game styles and over the top fabulosity LQO looks set to become one of the most unique and hilarious mobile games of 2014. With the Sochi Olympics and marriage-equality dominating the headlines, this Kickstarter campaign couldn't be more topical.

For fans of eighties video games like Leisure Suit Larry, King’s Quest or Space Quest here’s a chance to relive your youth and create another legendary role-playing computer adventure game. You’ll be playing the world's favourite bearded lady* as she sashays through six levels of escapades and innuendo to rescue Mother from the aliens, find the right man and spoil an alien plot which is set to destroy the world as we know it!

LaQuisha’s Odyssey needs your support to get the game and search for LaQuisha’s mother underway. LaQuisha’s creator, Conrad Johnston and Dan Milward, director of cloud-based gamefroot.com are designing the game and see huge potential to provide adventure and plenty of laughs on the way.

Conrad Johnston says, “LaQuisha Redfern thinks she is the world's favourite bearded lady, who is loved for her witty stories and escapades. So we thought why not turn her adventures into a game that anyone can play.”

“We’re looking for support to kickstart this project, and I have it on good authority that LaQuisha is willing to provide lots of incentives to get the Search for Mother underway. To find out more and how you could help kickstart the adventure just visit LaQuisha’s tumblr http://laquishasodyssey.tumblr.com. You’ll even see some of the first clues that will help you in the game. Good luck!“

LaQuisha made a special appearance to confirm Conrad’s news. “Yes my Darlings, if you decide to support Me and my loyal pussy, Cuddle Unit 5,  in our Odyssey, you will receive sprinkles of gifts from LaQuisha to say thank you. Not only will you have special gifts to beautify your world, you'll also get to play me in adventure so gay it's beyond the rainbow!“

LQO will be developed using the gamefroot.com level editor and the kiwi.js HTML5 mechanic. It will run on PC/Mac/Linux and be available as a mobile app for iOS and Android.
