'ManMade' (ALL) Launches Kickstarter Campaign - Trailer

ManMade is a VR adventure game set in an AI-ruled 2050’s dystopian world.

Artificial intelligence is part of every aspect of our lives. We trust AI with our education, health, safety, and finance. However, this comes at a cost: our freedom. It's time we take it back, but can we?

Powered by Unreal Engine, ManMade is a 5 episode long cinematic action-adventure game in which you experience an AI-ruled Istanbul of the 2050s, with or without virtual reality, through the eyes of different characters. By making choices, you can change how the future will unfold. 

William Kaan was one of the pioneers of advanced artificial intelligence. He was living an entirely happy life, but an accident changed its course. Losing his faith in artificial intelligence, Kaan wanted to get revenge on the system that betrayed him.  He won’t hesitate to use his unique senses or wits to outsmart people to take revenge.

ManMade shows us how other people and our choices can drastically change our lives and touches on the fear of the future and the growth of artificial intelligence.

The Kickstarter campaign for ManMade has launched today seeking a goal of €43.000 ($50,266) to complete development and bring this cyberpunk adventure game to PC, PS4, and virtual reality. (HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and PSVR). 

We have the capability to expand and refine our current gameplay experience to reach those expectations, process which is tied to constraints like funding and time, which are our main reasons to start a crowdfunding campaign.

ManMade is a cinematic action-adventure game. The player experiences the story by exploring the environment and by performing action sequences in the form of quick time events. However, gameplay is not limited to just exploring. You will experience unique mini-games throughout your gameplay, most of them consisting of action-packed mechanics.

Key Features:

  • A futuristic, detective-like experience: Use your enhanced senses to investigate scenes, gather information, and chase leads 
  • An immersive cyberpunk world: Immerse yourself in the cyberpunk streets of 2050's Istanbul. 
  • A non-linear story: The story changes according to your decisions, actions, or the absence thereof. Every choice you make will alter the experience. 
  • A cinematic VR camera: An innovative take on the virtual reality camera, allowing you to experience the story without the effects of motion sickness or loss of immersion by combining the use of third and first-person perspective (mostly first-person). You can switch between the first and third person and control your camera in the third person mode. 
  • Real actors, real performances: 3D scanning is used to digitize the faces of actual actors. We used IKinema motion capture and FaceWare face capture for capturing performances of the actors for action sequences and other game movements. 
  • An original soundtrack will be released: A soundtrack, consisting of 20 tracks from various artists, will be available for purchase (included in the deluxe edition).

ManMade is in development for HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR, PC, and PS4 (meaning it will also be playable without VR headsets).
