The Roadmap to Release
Our Timeline

2009 - Endless Migration minigame released
EM was our first real game, which we released in 2009. Jon created the flocking mechanic as part of his graduate work and then turned it into a fun minigame for Kongregate's Longest Lasting Game Contest. Endless Migration won the $10,000 Grand Prize (and a year supply of Stride gum!) which proved to us that this concept was worth exploring further.

2012 - Endless Migration Kickstarter
A few years later, we decided to run a campaign on Kickstarter to fund the creation of a full game based on the original flash prototype. Our campaign was a success and we were honored to have so much support. We started slowly but surely to create a full-scale sequel using Unity, that we will release on Steam for PC, Mac, and Linux, mobile devices (iOS and Android), and possibly even consoles through Xbox Live and PSN.

September 2012
The very very early demo for Super Endless Migration makes an appearance at Pax Prime in Seattle as part of Kickstarter's curated indie game showcase.

Present day 2015
We launched our Steam Greenlight campaign a few days ago at Boston Festival of Indie Games. Steam is the first platform we'd like to launch on, because we love the platform and the community. We need your help to make this dream a reality. Once greenlit, we have a stable build that we will release on Steam Early Access. We can't wait to have some dedicated gamers test our beta and help us make the game incredible.

Early 2016
Estimated release date for the complete game. Mobile and Console versions to follow!

New Features
Super Endless Migration uses the same concept as the original flash minigame - a flock of wayward birds who must survive an onslaught of aerial obstacles and challenges - but takes it to a new level. Super Endless Migration will have many new features and improvements from the prequel, including:
- Multiple Levels that span thousands of years of history, tied together by a seamless time-traveling wormhole system we've built.
- Dozens of bird species with unique abilities, including rare birds and unlockables.
- New types of threats, such as tracking drones, alien ships, collapsing cave systems, forest fires, crop dusters, mythical adversaries, and more!
- A re-imagined upgrade system and three key abilities: boost, song, and dodge
- A full indie soundtrack
- Alternate pathways through levels and secrets to be found
- An immersive visual narrative
- Story Mode and Endless Mode
- and more...

Essentially, the flash game was a proof-of-concept that showed the mechanic of flocking could be fun. Super Endless Migration will leverage the excitement of this mechanic to build a much broader, full-length, and immersive game. We think you'll play for hours, not minutes when you see all of the new and incredible features Super Endless Migration has to offer.

Description
Release date: Early 2016
Super Endless Migration is a 2d top-down indie survival game about flocking birds, time travel, and finding your way home.

Beginning above the crowded airspace of a modern metropolis, players guide the wayward flock through a relentless maelstrom of obstacles gathering all manner of friendly birds, until suddenly the flock is caught in a wormhole and hurdled through time. Players must overcome many dangers, traveling through history, prehistory, and even the distant future, in seven unique levels spanning thousands of years of history, mythology, and fantasy. Hunted by desperate predators, tracked by futuristic drones, threatened by crashing meteors, caught in the midst of aerial combat, and even left at the mercy of ancient gods and titans, the flock must constantly adapt to new and unexpected challenges, or be lost forever.

A solemn ode to aerial classics like Galaga or Space Invaders, Super Endless Migration is an arcade game at its heart, albeit an unconventional one.

The complete absence of weapons in the game — at least weapons that can be used by the player — creates a unique sense of danger and thrill, while flirting with the urge to press on in the face of the insurmountable. Super Endless Migration is a roguelike adventure with high stakes and little forgiveness. There are no extra lives, but there is a modest strength in numbers. As long as a single bird still flies, all is not lost.

Hot Air Raccoon have had $35 of my money for this game for 4 years. There has been no communication and there still is no communication.

If they communicated with their backers, we'd be understanding. Even if the project was put on hiatus or cancelled. I backed the game because I loved the original and wanted to support the devs. Even if nothing came of it, I'd have been happy to think of it as a donation for the joy I got from first game.

I've prodded the devs politely over the years. I've been supportive. I pushed the greenlight. I even contacted journalists about it. That was already after 3 years of no communication.


But since they're still not talking. Since they're still not showing any interest in all their fans who gave them over $10k. I'm now starting to feel like I've been stolen from. Its a real shame.

The game was supposed to come out four years ago, not sure what they're doing exactly. We're moving into Duke Nukem Forever territory here now.
