Company Statement: “We at Healing Wound Studios (HWS) are about making games that are not only a fun experience but a challenging and rewarding one. Reaching those hardcore players is our main focus but any player will be able to dive right into our games because of how simple and easy they are to play by just about anyone. HWS was established in 2013 by a couple of entrepreneurial gamers who sought out in making games that are amazing. Currently we are working on a mobile game but are seeking the help of others for donations since the required software and legal fees are out of our reach.

Gamers are who we are and gamers are who we listen to. At HWS we dedicate ourselves to creating the best gaming experience for our community.”

About the Entrepreneurs: They are just some individuals that have had some rough times but that hasn’t stopped them from doing what they love, making games. With years of experience playing video games, these individuals have learned what it takes to make quality games. They already have two prototypes worked on, with one of them coming out for the mobile market fairly soon. They also plan on making a full visual novel. Feel free to visit the company website to learn about each individual and personally talk with them via their personal social media links.

Looking for an Artist: We have a couple of game ideas ready to go and one of those ideas already has a fantastic story from a published author. We are at a standstill because of this but with support from everyone, we can find someone to work for us and give them a reasonable amount to get this idea going. 

Some of Our Programmer/Designer Work: Our programmer and designer are working on two mobile games. One will be a speed running game that will be based on a 2D platform style. The other is a 3D puzzle platformer, both of which will run on mobile devices. Lastly, a design concept for a 3D mystery solver has been created but will only see the light of day once the studio is fully funded. We would love to have these designs on more than just the mobile market but will require some additional software. Helping the studio grow will allow them to make these games come to you on multiple platforms.

Breakdown: So, you might be asking what we need the money for exactly and we are here to explain that in detail.

First off, we have to get some equipment that is needed to make the game. Most of us are using older PCs and/or outdated. We need to have computers that can actually handle certain software, as they require either a lot of RAM or VRAM. Just to give an idea, some of the software (3D Studio Max and Maya) that we will be using typically recommends an Nvidia Quadro GPU, which runs anywhere from $1000 - $4000. We are going to work around that with a cheaper version of their cards that can still handle the power but within a certain limit. We also need to get sound equipment for voice and music, as well as some digital draw boards for the animation.
Custom PC: $3000
PC Accessories: $1000
Wacom Drawing Tablets: $2000
Sound equipment: $1000

Next, we will talk about what software we will be using and that is, for now, the free versions of most the development kits out there but the problem is that for future projects, we will be required to get a paid version which will run us $2000 PLUS $1500 for each platform add-on…it is crazy, we know. What else is crazy is that some of the other software that will be useful, the ones mentioned above, will cost around $5000…just for one.
Unity: $2000
Live2D: $1500

Legal fees are a big issue because we do not want others to steal our ideas and claim it as their own. Secondly, we want to make sure our company is recognized so it is easy for newcomers to see us as a full-fledged studio. It will also help when we want to partner up with places like Xbox and Steam.

The website needs yearly payments, so we are asking for help to keep that paid off for years to come so that headache of worrying can be taken out of the equation.

As for fees, some of the software we are going to use have add-ons…they also have royalty to pay. One example is iOS App Store and Google Play Store which require a $99 fee just to place an app on their store.

Others is for backup in case we need to get something else that’s not mentioned. Such as maintaining subscriptions to Google App for Work which helps the studio maintain a watch over the website and also provides us with studio email accounts.
