The concept was created in February 2017 when I wanted to create a unique Role-Playing portal for my characters and have a very unique way to advertise my books and hopefully generate extra income. Especially since I would be going the self-publishing route. People need a place to break free from the reality of this world.
Writers spend so much time, love, patience, effort, and passion into creating interesting and wonderful characters. Not to mention the environments and the story plots. Now they can use it all to not only have fun and create interesting storylines for their characters but to advertise their books and expose themselves as writers.
All they have to do is activate the character
they've already created for their writing project
and the character will automatically be in the game.
So while they are building and creating their characters and stories, they can already play without reposting any information.
- Authors will get exposure and have a fun way to promote their books and characters (people fall in love with characters).
- The Characters belongs to a "Universe" (author's book).
- Earn real money from their Character's game time.
We hope to have raised enough funds to start end of July 2020.
- Have an illustrator design the unique Game interface of all the pages and objects.
- Hire a freelance game developer to team up with our developer and start developing.
A game is visual with graphics and art and interaction. It will take a lot of funds to get this into play time.
- For Writers to earn money from their characters as well.
- To get more exposure to their books and generate more sales.
- Be INSPIRED to write!
How will writers earn money?
Through all the in-app purchases that’s allocated to your character. The higher the character’s score, XP points and health the higher the % you can earn.
It will start at 5% and can go up to 50% - the rest will be used for art work and keeping the lights on and marking.
How will writers gain more exposure?
- Characters! The players will need to get to know the character to best use them in the game. Through this they will get to know the “universe” (your book) the character is from.
- If people fall in love with the character they will want to read the story!
- Also, through advertisement on the website where the books will randomly be featured – at no extra cost!
Questions and Answers
Is this RPG portal only for writers?
No! Only writers can enter their characters, everyone/anyone can play!
If the concept was created in February 2017 already, why the long wait?
I was hoping to get this off the ground on my own and with savings. But being a single mother and the crazy economy, that's nearly impossible. Now I'm trying other routes. I truly believe in this project and that it can help all writers earn more money above book sales.
Is only characters from books allowed to be entered?
No! Films and TV series all start with a script written by a writer!
Will well known and loved books and author character's be available to play?
We would LOVE to get them on board! It all starts with a dream! Of course players would love to play with their favourite book or film character. It depends on how well the marketing and word of mouth will be.
