Mummy’s Day Massacre is 2-4 player couch co-op/competitive game for all ages. The game uses light humour as the players navigate the levels, dodge dangerous traps, employ magical powerups and flee fearsome foes! There are game modes planned for teamwork, as well as competitive play.

The game project began as an entry into the Ludum Dare 72-hour gamejam, with the theme of ‘Ancient Technology’, and is inspired by Overcooked and Tomb Raider. It’s been in constant development since completion for the jam. Follow this blog at the bottom of the page to stay in contact, or check us out on Facebook.

The current build is available here. We plan to launch on Kickstarter on 7th November.

We plan to make Mummy’s Day Massacre a fun couch game, with modes for co-operation and competition. If the crowdfunding goals are met, we plan to release the game with the following:

In the finished game, each level will be populated with:

Fiendish Traps

  • Spike Traps
  • Swinging Logs
  • Boulders

Versatile Powerups

  • Speed Boost
  • Distraction Gadget
  • Power Punch

Over the two environments we want variety, not just in terms of environment, which traps and which powerups are available, but also who the monster is, and what their abilities are.

2 Monsters with unique behaviours & abilities

  • The Mummy
  • The Count

Game modes

  • Competitive Tomb Raiding
    Outrun the monster and compete against, trap and outrun fellow players to escape alive with the most treasure. The trick is to be crafty! Alliances are there to be broken!
  • Co-operative Monster Hunt
    Do your best to work together with your friends! Try to stick together and defeat the monster by using traps and powerups. Teamwork and communication is key. In this mode, one of the players will be able to play as the monster!
  • Artefact Chase
    Use the coins you collect for power-ups as you compete to make it out with the treasured artifact. Use everything at your disposal, think strategically and act quickly! In this mode, players can work on opposing teams.

There will be 12 different characters to choose from with a range of body types. We want our characters to be colourful, vibrant and with simple, clean designs. We also want to encompass a diverse range of origins and appearances. The first of our new design of characters, is Yukie Lyptus the Koala:

We’re very pleased with the look of this character, and all of us love the low poly, hand-painted style. Some characters will be human in nature, others animal, but all will share this art style.

What the money will be used for:

All of us working on the game do so because it’s what we love. But we can’t do everything, so we need to turn to professionals in each field. For example we have a clear vision for the kind of audio and music we would like, but feel like the game deserves to have the professional treatment. It’s for this reason that a portion of the money will go towards paying a composer, to create key music themes for each environment. We also need a professional license for the Unity engine, and other ancillary software used in development. Finally, in order to complete the game within a suitable deadline, some visual work will be outsourced to skilled professionals.

Stretch Goals

If we are able to reach our target of £3,000 (around $3,700), Mummy’s Day Massacre will release with everything mentioned above. If it looks like we will succeed in funding, there are a number of stretch goals that are being seriously considered, including:

  • Castle Environment with Mad Doctor Monster
  • Lagoon Environment with Creature Monster
  • More playable characters
  • More levels per environment
  • More game modes
  • Online multiplayer
  • Home console release
  • Foreign language support
