Keeper and the Soldier Has Been Greenlit!

Click for Greenlight Page



Keeper and the Soldier has been Greenlit on Steam! Thank you to everyone for the support and votes. We could not have done this without you and the feedback.
Thank you.
Really, thank you. I still can't believe it~ 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Keeper and the Soldier! (KATS for short)

It started with a few sketches, which then lead to a collection of illustrations, and now a game which is being brought to life with Jumpbutton Studio. 



The Game

Keeper and the Soldier is a 2.5D stealth puzzle platformer from Jumpbutton Studio about a lonely young girl, destined to live a soldier's life, who finds something beautiful in a world ravaged by never-ending war. Thereupon finding a connection deeper than she ever thought possible. 

A forgotten guardian of the past, desperate and dying, puts its fate into the hands of the wandering child. 

Their bond sends them on a journey to preserve history. 

Note: This game stemmed from a personal project that I started in 2009, which was a collection of characters, story, and artwork relating to my efforts in making sense of and coming to terms with experiences with child abuse. Keeper and the Soldier uses symbolism and fantasy to the tales of a young girl's struggles; inspired by real ordeals. 

Our team is a strong supporter against child abuse and neglect, and we hope to contribute to and plan future charitable/awareness events towards this cause. 

If you are interested in contacting us (we love hearing feedback and questions!), please feel free to send us a message here: kats@jumpbuttonstudio.com or to my email: ssejanit@gmail.com (I will see them! :])

SUPPORT ME IN CREATING 
ILLUSTRATIONS, CONCEPT ART, AND A PERSONAL INDIE GAME


Hi watchers! Thank you for supporting my work all these years! Now there's a more personal place for me to interact with you and continue making art <3

"Art and game development are not only passions, but have been a large part of my life and battle against depression; now more than ever as I pursue more personal work and an indie game that's close to my heart. I dabble in a little of everything: traditional, digital, creatures, props, environments, characters, etc. Your donation will help me to find the time to work on all of this, but also to give back and interact with you. Art is a lifestyle, art reflects you, art opens us to new communities and experiences, and the context in which people create their work is very important to me. I'd love to interact, hear your stories, and participate in discussion on our endeavors.

By pledging I can continue to create and share with you first original content and updates on projects I'm passionate about. As this Patreon grows, I will make new stretch goals and provide more material/rewards!"

Post Sacanime! Thanks everyone!

Post Sacanime! Long Overdue Update!

Thank you everyone for the support and unbelievable response!


20160101_151114

I went to Sacanime with my friend and level designer for Keeper and the Soldier, Andrew, in January. There was a lot of talent and indie projects in the artist alley, a hub of creativity and passion~

The whole dev team is overjoyed with the response people had towards KATS! Around 100 con-goers signed up for the newsletter and played the demo! Below is Andrew at the ready with the KATS demo and screenshots. Special shout out to our lead programmer Ace who stayed up every night during the con debugging and editing the demo build based on your feedback, and Andrew for probably giving the KATS game pitch several hundred plus times over the course of the weekend! (Props to his passion and excitement every time he gave it, too!)

Personal Note: I am back from a hiatus. There has been some recent events in my life that brought out the worst of my depression. It is not over by any stretch of the imagination, but thank you to everyone who helped me/lent an ear during this time and made me feel less ashamed to open about what I've kept to myself/ has given me nightmares over the years. I am now more than ever passionate about pursuing personal work and opening discussion with others about child abuse. These past months have made me disappointed and upset over what happens to children, the future and foundations of our future. And for anyone going through similar situations, I care. I believe you.
