The idea was sparked by watching my kids play all these virtual-farming-pet-breeding games. They really liked the interaction, but they hated waiting around for something to happen. I thought shooting monsters would make for a fun "farming" mechanic.
I chose Kickstarter because I wanted to get some validation that this is a good idea. The concept smushes two very different genres together, so if people get it they are likely to support it. If they don't get it, I don't want find that out after its finished.
Please, check it out and share if you want to make this project a reality.
