“Game On” is a series in which we examine the companies, creators, and games in crowdfunding. We look at the journey, ideas, and concepts the creators wanted to bring to market with their product.”

Tim Fowers of Fowers Games is a husband and father of 3 kids. He has been making games and video games for about 10 years. He runs his own website to independently sell each of his own games. The first games that he fell in love with were Puerto Rico and Power grid. Some of the games that he has published are Paperback, Burgle Bros, Fugitive, Now Boarding and many others.

Fowers Games released their game Sabotage on Kickstarter on July 25th and they were fully funded within the first 24 hours. Tim took a new strategy with his campaign and instead of doing stretch goals he decided that every few days he would unlock  significant upgrades, sneak peeks and new characters. By August 15, their campaign had successfully raised over $183,000.

Sabotage is an asymmetric stealth game for two teams of two players each. One team, the villains, are trying to take over the world with their their doomsday devices. The other team, the spies, are infiltrating the villains' secret lair to stop them. The spies must use their stealth and cunning to shut the villains down without getting caught. The villains must use their deductive reasoning and massive stockpile of weapons to prevent the spies' subversion.” Each team plays completely differently and can use different tactics to be able to sabotage each other.

Each character has multiple abilities that they can use to make every game a completely unique experience. This makes it possible to use the characters in the game to either expand their abilities or to sprint out and hope for a victory. Players will need to coordinate with their teammates in order to win the game. To find out more about Sabotage or to view their Kickstarter campaign please visit the links below.
