Crowdsourcing Mornings: Super Science Friends: The Video Game

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

The Super Science Friends got its start as an animated series on Kickstarter! They are a team of super powered scientists who travel through time fighting nazi clones, space ghouls and their own scientific rivals.  The dastardly bad guys of history have all teamed up and captured the Super Science Friends! You need to travel through time to take them on one by one and settle the score between our heroes and their evil arch-rivals.  Due to a time paradox Adolf Hitler is back from the dead and has gathered all of the super villains together to kidnap the Super Science Friends! It’s up to Einstein to rescue them (and unlock them as playable characters)! Fight your way through 12 awesome levels each taking place in a different period of time (and space). Defeat classic Super Science Friends villains like the Soviet Space Ghouls, Thomas Edison and more!

Love the style of the show? Wondering what this pixel art business is? Don’t worry, there’ll be plenty of hand drawn animation the game. Each level will have at least one fully animated cinematic to help bring the story to life.  This past year the award-winning animation studio Tinman Creative has teamed up with Gorlami! Games to produce Super Science Friends: The Game! The style is changing from hand drawn frame-by-frame animation to 90’s style 16-bit pixel art for this science-packed beat-em-up adventure in the spirit of “Streets of Rage” and “Turtles In Time”. You play as a young Albert Einstein who needs to use his powers of relativity (super speed) to rescue the rest of the Super Science Friends from the clutches of the evil Adolf Hitler! As you rescue the other characters, you unlock them as playable characters. You could play the animalistic Charles Darwin, the radiant Marie Curie, the electrifying Nikola Tesla and more!

As of December 18th, this project has raised $10,000 of their $38,896 goal. This project has 17 days left to raise the $38,896 or it will not be funded! For a pledge of $12, you will get digital wallpapers.  For a pledge of $19, you will get one copy of the game!  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
