Solo Indie Dev Bets Farm, Launches Castle Breakers Kickstarter Campaign

Neo/retro rpg block breaker mashup seeks funds for continued development


Chicago, IL- September, 24, 2013- Independent game developer Alan Noon announces launch of Castle Breakers Kickstarter Campaign. Fundraising effort runs for thirty days; seeks $35,000 to support further development effort.

After a career of over twenty years of professional employment in the game industry, Alan Noon has poured that experience into Castle Breakers, a modern reinterpretation of the block breaker genre. With three months of work and personal finances invested into the prototype, Castle Breakers seeks crowd funding support via Kickstarter in order assist with bringing the game to market.

The Castle Breakers Kickstarter Campaign features a number of special and digital and physical rewards for backers, such as: an in depth and exhaustive strategy guide; top quality artwork from Hollywood concept artist of Transformers, Spiderman, and Iron Man 3 fame; an ultra premium 2600 style de-make version of Castle Breakers; a handcrafted table top Castle Breakers arcade game;

ldquo;This is it: make it or break it. Irsquo;ve worked for a long time to be able to take this chance on doing my own thing. Therersquo;s a lot on the line. This has to take off or my indie dev career will be dramatically and embarrassingly brief. Honestly, Irsquo;m not too excited about the alternatives if this Kickstarter doesnrsquo;t succeed in meeting its funding goal. Perhaps Irsquo;ll just get out of games for good. I donrsquo;t know. Whatever.rdquo;-Alan Noon.
