Annie Award-winning animator and The Nightmare Before Christmas art director, Deane Taylor, is crowdfunding Jinko, a “mixed media fantasy adventure game for young adults”.

“The project is vast. Thirty plus lead characters and over a hundred incidentals. Locations are complex, and numerous,” said Taylor.

The game will have seven acts, “each with its own genre of gameplay and unique design. As the story unfolds new characters rise and join your team, each offering a set of skills that Jinko can use and further develop. The opportunity for exploration is huge.”

The Indiegogo project is asking for $54,000 to help build the first stage of the game: an animatic, which will be used to develop a teaser. The support tiers offer art rewards, not the final game.
