Hello, you lovely people!


I’m Oliver. The founder of Hirnbix. I’m an older guy who has worked for Nintendo in the past and played almost every game on this planet. 

I started on a monitor which only displayed 8 variations of green. 
My games were stored on cassette tape. 
There you have it. Hardcore. 

My motto is always this: 
“Alone you go fast, but with a team, you go far!”

With 40 it’s time to do stuff before it’s too late. 
So, in this case, the stuff is this: MAKING A GREAT GAME with even greater people! 

I’d be happy if you support me and my little creative lab “Hirnbix”. It’s going to be fun.

So what are you talking about old man, why do you want my money?

It’s all about Captain Holetooth! Read on!

First: Thanks for reading this far. I appreciate it.

Captain Holetooth

My game and my books are centered around the character “Captain Holetooth” (CAHO) 



CAHO is a character I invented for my son. For about 4 years now I tell him a new story every evening! 
That’s about 1.500 stories so far and some of these stories make it into the game and my books.

CAHO lives in a rich world with amazing characters and his main purpose is to defend a kind of “magic candy” (still looking for a good name) and to collect surplus sweets so that children don’t eat too much of them…

The world of CAHO has a deep backstory (almost like Lord of the rings – no kidding!) and the origin of the setting is my work on children’s books.

So what’s your idea behind the game and how does it stand out?

 

  1. My idea is to provide a 2D game that tells a story over time and makes people want to explore the amazing world of Captain Holetooth.
  2. Deep backstory, rich world
  3. Explorative nature with no major punishments is appealing to many audiences (I aim for a younger audience)
  4. Characters and their backstories are revealed during gameplay
  5. Episodic content or chapters are planned (at least 5 short chapters/stories are already written)
  6. Mix of gameplay elements (already in game: side scrolling shooter, jump and run, relaxing casual marble game)

 

Bla blah… Let me see the game!

Well. Surprise!

I put a lot of work into the game already and thanks to the Godot-Engine I made great progress in a few months!
Just give it a go and see what has been done so far.
