The Mole's Kickstarter is Live!!!
Description
The Mole is a light-hearted, 2D adventure, but unlike most of the games in the recent flood of “retro platformers”, The Mole aims to play like a classic platformer instead of simply looking like one via pixelated graphics. However, The Mole will include movement above, on, and below ground, with an emphasis on the transitions between the different movement areas. When grounded, The Mole will play like your average platformer, but things get interesting when the mole takes to the air via the grappling hook or dives underground via the earth-drill, both essential components of his all-purpose, multi-tool.

Why would a mole have such a sleek and quite handy gadget, you might ask? Well, interestingly enough, the mole just so happens to be a top-notch private eye, and one that’s become the undisputed favorite hire for a specific group of large and slightly shady corporations. For this reason, in addition to striving to encapsulate the overall feel of a classic platformer, The Mole will also incorporate many aspects of the modern stealth genre, creating a unique blend that I hope will satisfy all sorts of fans from Mario to Metal Gear Solid!

In the game, the mole is trying to figure out who has been leaking top-secret information from the corporations that have hired him. He will travel across strange and distant lands as the player moves across the diversified scenery via the world map. Most of the levels in The Mole will be short, taking about 3-5 minutes to complete, and drastically unique, being tied together by the world map, which can be briefly seen in its rough state in the video on my Kickstarter page.

In The Mole there will be lots to explore as the mole faces very smart AI enemies, including boss battles, and diverse levels types, including races and even parachuting! Players will also discover new tools, items, and upgrades along the way that will help the mole achieve his tasks more quickly and silently. The Mole will be fun for all ages and all types of players, with its family-friendly art, sound, and gameplay.

Just logged in to comment on this one.
At it's current stage, it's not likely to become a successfully funded game on kickstarter. With all the other current games currently in the same boat as you, requiring funding and the like, this one is not yet in a stage to be called completed, or even near complete, and sadly in our day and age that is most likely going to repel the target audience you're working to attract.

Just expecting a Kickstarter to succeed with an alpha stage game, with it's flaws and bugs, will not work I'm afraid.

That being said, I do like the concept. It's a brilliant idea, but that's all it is right now, and you're going to have to come at it from another perspective if you want it to succeed.
