What is Leftwing?

So, you wish to gain the knowledge of what was what we call leftwing? I shall broaden your minds of what the gods have told me themselves! The great leftwing were once mere humans. The gods called upon the land of the living in order to find only the strongest to become a companion. But in this case, a goddess asked of her husband Talhan to bring her a woman of strong will.... 
Talhan had found after many days of search what his wife was searching for... But to his surprise, she was nothing more then a mere sickly young girl. He watched her final hour as she laid in bed watching sparrows bathe.
He heard as her lips whispered her last.
 "Birds bear wings to escape untimely death, why can't I escape my fate?"
Passing away into the land of the dead, talhan  granted his wife her only request and got his hands dirty with the lords of the underworld to bring her the child that would if deemed worthy, become a goddess herself.  His wife and him gave her a chance to live a life where she no longer had to worry about sickness and the dark idea of being alone. To her eyes she awoken a valkyrie!
Physical Copies
Were working on different looks on our copies! We will have a update soon on what the physical copy will look like! Each will be an awesome jewel case with cover complete with an a manual! Signed by us! Knight Finch and Anthem!




We are proud to announce the birth of our project! Project leftwing is a action adventure role playing game. The photographs below show the battle system at the moment, but we are still working it out.  It is going to be a blast, Fun and Unfogetfull for its hero's and villains adventures into their heart and soul to step into a new view of their lives.  So far iv been working on the sketches on my free time and programing the game at the same time. We have the game precisely  28% percent done. That is also due to me working completely solo for the most part. I have been working on building projects witch has inspired me to try to do some pre-rendering and rendered environments, but that may have to wait till another project .

 A great story, funny and charming npc's to talk to on your travels. Towns full of life and excitement, hero's and companions to gather as you progress into the story! Who doesn't like dungeons? Well we have plenty of those! Who doesn't like babes? What is a story without a smart woman on your team! If you wish to see more on our project, check out our web page at www.knightfinch.webs



Story...

During the rise of the gods, humanity hid from their rage. They saw flaw in the human race, as they left them to fend for themselves. Some gods cared and sheltered what was left of the humans, telling them of  great tales to tell their young and old... But one particular story was legendary... Ohan, a man wishing for change in his life.. wishing that he could go on a adventure finds his fate as he opens a book one day to find a lost treasure to humanity and gods alike!  Destiny awaits, you must find the great body of Alria, the great leftwing Valkyrie!

Why kickstarter?

We as a team of two and hopefully more to come, are here to get inspired! To make connections and to help others, as well hopefully get help for our projects in return. We see others and try to give the boost of sheer kindness, sadly not much but it is something!  We wish to also get inspired by the other projects around us. We chose kickstarter from the sheer genuine of being helped by others just like us and giving the kindness back they showed us. Thank you all so much!

The Platform

We have been working with this project in 2d, but we hope we can put some 3d aspects into the game such as the items and backgrounds hopefully we can do pre rendered environments and vector graphics like the old days. If we could raise the funding it would make it so we could afforded to make this happen since we don't  have the resources to do so. This project will be released on the Xbox live indi game section, Destructiod, and Steam for the pc.We also will have available an actual physical copy, thanks to rory! I recommend you ask for the copy on kickstarter since it will be cheaper!

Battle System 



For right now we have the battle system is in the first persons. That shall change when we can figure out the script.  but due to few resources we have had issues with trying to put 3d rendering into a 2d game..... We are going to implant more of a third person battle system when we can re-write the script and draw out the characters in more of a 3d software so the game looks more the way it should be.
Testing
 We will update you further as the project progresses! We are still in early stages of development so we humbly apologies.

Items 




The items you will obtain in your travels are one of a kind. Their descriptions and uses are unordinary and funny to read.  As an example, who knew stinky cheese could help you regain health but, as well give you bad breath as well! What about meat, Its rather chewy!

Us,and our project...Work, work, work!


 
Both with the passion of story telling, we plan to put these ideas into permanent action.  I have been recently working in carpentry, house painting, historical restoration, and plastering to try to get our project rolling. So far we have been able to begin the first stages of the game, but we are severly outsourced and don't have the right materials, in order to make the game come more together. We have suffered financially in our persute.

After months of figuring out complications, we were able to make the few first steps into our project. Buying a cool laptop, witch was the only cheep one we could find but was too much to begin with. And a tower so we could work on the computer while making the game.  But we could not upgrade computer due too not enough money, so we had to make the project on a single laptop.  

We have a small yet convenient work space, surrounded by inspiration and by the things we love in order to keep us in the bright eyed view of working on the project. So far we have spent already over our budget for the game so we being cheap on ourselves in order to prosper on the game.  We have two laptops and two towers in order to finish this project.

Our stations
Welcome! This is the head programmer speaking from Knight Finch, sitting next to Rory to talk about our project! The love for video games, we all have this inner kid within us all. We are here to try to raise funds to be able to make the product shine for our consumers! With out hearts submerged  in the new and old, we want to make this the best that we can! Our hero's are you!

Yes, were like big kids!  We surround ourselves with the love for games and the love to create! It keeps us in high hopes!  We also have a wall of games dating from the good days of games like "Ultima" all the way to the games of today to remind ourselves that every game is worth a chance!  Here we have a photo of rory in his corner being watched by lightning in the corner, how cute.....But work is work! We are here to make this project possible...

Rory working on program ruby for the project, check out our cool far out work station! :)

The map

Starting point in the game, the first island in the game!

The map is huge witch means a lot has to be paced and a lot of the story has to connect of all of these places witch will be difficult. But for you guys and galls, we will make it happened! We will do our best to make the game long and not boring!

Music..

We also will be working on our own music, but we can't do to funding and needing repairs for our instruments. We will keep you updated!
 



We wish this project to come to life, with your help you can help us make it come true. Thank you so much for taking your time reading our project!

The term "Ninja's" (Runaway anime, and video game fans)
Is widely used within BMCC, and School's around the city area.w
Borough of Manhattan Community College, The City University of New York.

Is a place of exploration for the young and old.
Every time you aprouch a Ninja, you must take extreme precaution, such as in carying a net, ninja starts, or a box of Pocky.

Now for some odd reason, tons of individuals think that "Anime" stands for just "Animation" in general. Sorry to say which is not true for it has it's own category within the art's, unless you categorize "Anime" with "Disney."
If your the type that enjoys watching Sailor Moon with Peter Pan, well then you must be one very interesting individual.
Also, a lot of people who don't play Video Games consider those who do to quote "Have no lives."
If this statement is true then id rather have no life then be a robot trying to copy the styles of Gwen Stefani and Lady Gaga.
Yeah sorry, i don't think id walk around the city looking like this.
I don't want to be mistaken for a Mr. Bubbles mascot.


This is what gives Anime lovers a bad name, as Gwen Stefani all of a sudden has taste for the japanese culture.
Yes i do respect you more then i respect Lady Gaga, but you need to stop yourself for making Japan angry.




And a good vocabulary in knowledge of anime and games.
for you don't want to look like this.


Anyways this guy has balls to dress like this. *thumbs up*

Seems like BMCC's Anime and Video Game population is growing rapidly, but these indaviduals don't want to be seen or be acknowledged within the Community of fans. (they hide)
But now, just recently.
A few Studen't of this priticualar college have invested in a group called The AMV's club.
( THE ANIME-MANGA-VIDEO GAMES's CLUB )

Anyways these clubs are growing among many school's around the world,
it still seems that these club's only offer so little for those who join.
This years budget for this school was only a lottal of 500 US dollars.
Which only seems to be enough to by snacks for about three months or so, and on top of that they have to rent a room from the school.
They School's only want these rooms used for instructional classes obviously, but who said these things were not "Educational"?
Well the school board of corse!
It is frowned upon to enroll in a club for the ones who join are considered to have a negative social.
There are those who are more open to the ways of there preference in the nerd life.
High School clubs have been cut down, and college clubs are only brought up and live off of those who are strong enough to keep it breathing.
Video Games are more of a threat to parents then to the school board, due to what kind.
Iv seen some that bring in Modern Warfare 2 into there High schools.
As they plug in the system and begin playing, the teacher tells them it's either not allowed or just calls the parent in concern thinking that the next day dressed in army camo, thinking they are on a mission to destroy Metal Gear.
Or dressed as a doctor writing on your english test as you scream combo breaker, while you draw multiple stars with your DS stylus


Is it really so abnormal to want to tap out of reality once in a while?
Are we going back into the era of hiding guilty pleasures of Video gaming, and Anime?

The PlayStation Portable (PSP) is considered to be the most powerful hand held game console made by Sony Computer Entertainment.
The system was released in Japan on December 12, 2004. Then released in north America March 24, 2005.
It is also the first hand held system to uses (UMD's) Witch is a optical disk format called "Universal Media Disk".
Of course there were bugs and reading errors within the system but the sales for this hand held game system stood strong. Not even the "Nintendo DS" could compare to the abilities that were offered by the PSP.
It was latter that the PSP 2000, and the PSP 3000 such as the "SLIM" and the "GO" slid into the big picture.
And the PSP 1000 began to slide under the radar as consumers began to buy the Slim and Go, latter they were they to find out that after the sales of the new additions that the PSP 1000 had more to offer then the newer additions to the PSP family.

Some customers were sad to find it harder to crack, to hack and to download there beloved brews, as they began to purchase the old version once again but found out that it was even harder to get then it was when it first arrived from Japan to America.

The PSP 1000's were once again in high demands but was no longer found in stores brand new, or if used they were abused and already claimed.



It has been at most seven years since the first PSP was released, and still the babies of the very first beautifully made handheld system cannot compare to its art.

Has Sony lost their touch?
Those who own these PSP 1000,
Do the have the best of what is out there in the hand held world?
Is it becoming
A rare find.....?

There are a huge amount of game stores in New York City,
But out of all the stores within this sea of consumer goods.
Two of the stores within the City named
Video Games New York
http://videogamesnewyork.com/

And the Other
Play and Trade

Both stores have proven that the PSP 1000 are in high demand and are wanted more then ever before.

One told me a story.
"One day, a kid walked in and sold his 1000... once he walked out 3 people tried to buy it,, but i bought it first *chuckles lightly* it rocks to be an employee sometimes"

It looks like as if one day, this system will be behind the glass case
This is a picture of only a very small amount of rare finds that Video Games New York can offer you.
