Spellirium is a word puzzle point-and-click graphic adventure game currently in development at Toronto studio Untold Entertainment. In this game, which I had an opportunity to play some very, very early versions of, players spell words to solve puzzles, defeat monsters, and solve a mystery. In this special pre-order fundraising program, supporters are offered several different purchase levels, ranging from $15.00 for a Base Pack to the $1000.00 Design Your Own Monster level as listed below:
- Base Pack – $15.00: Get the Spellirium alpha (PC or Mac) today, and a guaranteed release copy of the final game. If Spellirium lands on Steam, we’ll send you a Steam key. The Spellirium alpha is unlocked, with access to the UGAGS game logic and the “god panel”. All future game updates are included, along with private wiki access and a copy of the original GDD (game design document). You’ll also get access to the backers-only message boards to talk about the game with its creators.
- Patron Of The Arts – $25.00: In addition to the Base Pack, you’ll get a PDF Art Book containing the gorgeous art of Spellirium, including concept paintings, animation breakdowns, and far-out creature designs that didn’t make the cut. (Note: the Art Book is in progress!) You’ll also get a custom MP3 download of Blackbird Raum’s “Honey in the Hair”, the awesome folkpunk song that plays during the Spellirium trailer. As a Patron of the Arts, we’ll add your name to the “Special Thanks” section of the credits.
- Reserve A Word – $30.00: Lay claim to your own word in the Spellirium Dictionary, so that any time a player clicks on that word, your name pops up! Choose your word wisely: SEXY, AMAZING and KUMQUAT are likely to go quickly! (Words are from 3-7 letters in length. Reservations subject to approval by Untold Entertainment – stay classy!) This tier includes all previous rewards.
- Classroom License – $100.00: Sponsor your students and receive a Spellirium classroom license for up to 30 students. Does NOT include previous tier rewards and does not stack with higher level tiers. Spellirium is recommended for ages 12 and up.
- School License – $300.00: Sponsor your students and receive a Spellirium license for your entire school. Does NOT include previous tier rewards and does not stack with higher level tiers. Spellirium is recommended for ages 12 and up.
- Voice A Character – $500.00: Limited (11 of 12 left) Lend your voice to one of the characters in Spellirium! Includes all previous tiers except the Classroom and School licenses. Find out more about voicing a character in Spellirium.
- Design Your Own Monster – $1000.00: Limited (3 of 3 left) We will turn your monster drawing into an actual creature in Spellirium that players can fight! We will workshop puzzle rules with you to make your monster fun and challenging. Your name will be included in the Bestiary description for your monster. Monster designs are subject to approval by Untold Entertainment for obvious reasons. This tier includes all rewards from the Reserve-A-Word tier.
Also available is the Reserve Another Word For $5.00 tier for those who can’t get enough of reserving their own words in the Spellirium Dictionary. This a la carte reward enables you to put your name (or someone else’s) on a word. That’s is the ONLY thing that this reward tier gets you – no game, no special access – just a sweet, sweet word of your own. You can order this tier as many times as you like (while supplies last!)
Spellirium is also on Steam Greenlight, where you can vote to get the game on Steam.
