Appy Pie Announces Successful Funding on Kickstarter for Game Builder(August 27, 2013)
California (PRWEB) August 27, 2013
Appy Pie, a cloud-based apps builder, announces passage of the 100 percent mark in their Kickstarter funding project for their Game Builder Project. On August 26, 2013, the Game Builder project on Kickstarter successfully passed the 100 percent funding level. While Appy Pie has passed 100 percent guaranteeing funding, the Kickstarter project is far from over. The fundraising will continue on Kickstarter for the remaining two days in the 30-day campaign. Backers now know that they will get their Mobile Game for sure because of the project reaching the funding level. Appy Pies goal was to raise $10,000 to help fund its Mobile Game Builder solution, which makes building a mobile game as easy as pie. The Kickstarter campaign will finish on August 28th 2013 and was aimed at raising funds for Appy Pies unique mobile game building platform, which will become publicly available in November.
We are funded and we are so grateful to our backers. We also know that with two days remaining, we are likely to get a lot more backers. This is because many people wait on the sidelines and only jump in once a project is successfully funded. Thats ok with us. It is time for everyone to jump in, said Abhinav Girdhar, founder of Appy Pie. As we have reached our target this has not only validated the Game Builder but has also given us the confidence that our solution is supported by gamers, developers, businesses and individuals.
Game Builder does not require any programming skills and there is no need to install or download any software. Completely cloud-based, Game Builder will enable users to not only create mobile games online with just a few clicks but to also monetize their games by deploying them on iTunes, Google Play and Windows Phone Marketplace. Game Builder is unique in that it is the only web-based game development platform currently available on the market. With it, users can create a hybrid game that works on both mobile and web platforms.
Appy Pie recognized there was no tool available on the market that enabled mobile games to be created without first downloading software or requiring some prior programming knowledge. Game Builder has been designed to keep the entire game building process as straightforward as possible, with only three simple steps needed to create a game:
Step 1: Select Game Type
Choose a genre from the game library, such as Action. For the public release of Game Builder in November, there will be at least four genres to choose from, with more added on an ongoing basis.
Step 2: Enter Game Info
Provide information such as the game name, logo and description.
Step 3: Customize Game Settings
Create main characters and enemies, weapons, obstacles and collectibles using images from the default library or from uploaded custom images.
The finished HTML5 mobile game is then available for immediate download on iPhone, iPad, Android or Windows 8 devices or users can simply play it in their web browser. Appy Pie plans to add a number of advanced features to Game Builder in the coming months, including game monetization, game analytics, push notifications, real-time changes and the ability to add paid levels with in-app purchases.
Those who pledged their support for Game Builder on Kickstarter will get a variety of rewards depending on their level of contribution, from digital downloads of the mobile games they design to the opportunity of becoming Appy Pie's first white label mobile game reseller.
