Let's Get It Kickstarted: ‘The Intergalactic Trashman’

The Intergalactic Trashman (Kickstarter)

Trash is trash. Doesn’t matter if it’s floating in outer space or lying on the streets. Trash needs to be removed, even in The Intergalactic Trashman, and swiftly. Fortunately for interstellar travellers, Kepler and his ever-loyal partner Xana are on the job, ready to clean up outer space as it were. Oh and kick some pirate booty, while they’re at it. Why? To avoid stagnation, I suppose? Hard to say.

They’re not just cleaning up outer space for everyone elses benefit though, as Intergalactic Trashmen – the company Kepler and Xana work for – has a thing with  recycling. A thing called… wait for it… making money! Well, what else could it possibly be, right? Money makes the world go ’round, and even more so in the vast emptiness of space. How else are they going to pay for all them fancy gadgets with which to dispose of aforementioned pirates and other evil scum? Exactly.

The Intergalactic Trashman (Kickstarter)

During your little planet-hopping adventure, you’ll come across jungles, castles and other mysterious locales, full of both puzzles, trash, and maybe even a collectible or two. Exciting! Just don’t forget about your goal: to find and figure out what the deal is with that mysterious factory, your mentor discovered not long ago, because something definitely ain’t right about that place.

But alas, before any of that can come to be, there’s crowdfunding to be dealt with! While they have plenty of time (28 days) left on the clock, the goal of $35,000 is still quite far away, so let’s get to it! Project (as in, the game, not the Kickstarter) has been in the making for quite some time (since 2013), and according to the developer, they “just need to improve the current game mechanics, add the storytelling component and mission system to the game, and design the stages”. Wait, “just”?

We started The Intergalactic Trashman’s development back in 2013 and we have put a great deal of effort in every aspect of the game, working exclusively on this project for no money. We are running out of savings, and we need your help to achieve our purpose and make of this the game we dreamed of.

Anyway, the game is in need of funding, and for this one, the pre-order tier is set to $10 (for early birds – otherwise, $15). Simple enough. Could always opt for a physical copy though, which’ll set ya back $100? Or simply spread the word, as that’ll also help a great deal. The more people who know about the Kickstarter, the better their chances, after all. Oh and let’s get it through Greenlight too, eh? Ain’t easy being… The Intergalactic Trashman.
