BasketWars – An Indie Game with a Purpose
Los Angeles, California – JABB Interactive LLC, a small indie game company trying to be seen in a massive app market, is raising funds on Kickstarter for the new addictive iOS game BasketWars, launching in March of 2014.
Get ready soldier!! You have been immediately drafted and shipped out to the battlegrounds of World War II. Stay alive by launching firepower infused basketballs up in the air and into the basket. Each amazingly designed WWII influenced ball has a unique weapon to help you defeat the enemy and make the perfect shot. Channel your inner Army Commander to conquer each battle and destroy enemy as an onslaught of grenades, missiles, and bullets are hurled towards you with bad intent. With over 60 masterfully designed levels, and 6 insane Bosses, BasketWars is a true test of strength and skill. Play alone or challenge your friends to a battle of epic proportion. Oh and did we mention you’ll face zombies too? Do you have what it takes to win the war? Hoo-rah!
After a year and a half of development, the JABB team feels they have created a unique game that can truly stand out in the crowd. Founder of JABB, Jeremy Born said, “We feel the current state of the game market on the App Store is somewhat stale. Companies are recycling the same games and no one is trying to re-invent the wheel. By mixing several genres including sports, war, multiplayer, and strategy, we feel we have created something completely unique, and hopefully people will appreciate that.”
In addition to attempting to make BasketWars a household name, the company is also dedicated to giving back. “Most game companies are concerned with one thing, making money. Here at JABB, we want to give back and make a difference in the lives of others,” said head of Marketing and PR, Brandy Born. Because of this, JABB is in the process of partnering with the Semper Fi Fund, by giving a portion of game proceeds to this great cause. Founder, Jeremy Born stated, “This was a great match as our game has a military influence based on the battles of WWII. Giving back to our wounded warriors is a tremendous cause and is held close to our hearts.”
The Semper Fi Fund, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and its program America’s Fund, are set up to provide immediate financial assistance and lifetime support for injured and critically ill members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. We direct urgently needed resources to post 9/11 service members, who meet our criteria for assistance, from the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and Reserves.
Up until now, BasketWars has been a self-funded project. The JABB team is nearing the end of both development and savings. They are turning to potential backers to get the word out. Getting a small influx of funding from Kickstarter would allow them to market the game after launch, provide content updates and port over to other platforms this year.
This project will only be funded if at least $10,000 is pledged by Sat, Mar 22 2014 12:29 PM 05:30. If you’d like more information about the BasketWars Project, or if you’d like to schedule an interview, please email Brandyn Born.
