Thank you for supporting Keeper and the Soldier at Fanime and Anime Expo! It was a success!


We had many sign up/subscribe to future KATS newsletters, and the team is ecstatic that others are following our journey in development~ We sold out of KATS custom sketchbooks at Fanime and Riri was giving out beautiful info pamphlets at Anime Expo~ Hope to see you at future cons! :D Again, thank you so much! Really gets us motivated when we see others interested in the project; couldn't do it without your support! Hug

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. 


Some of you may have seen some of my early illustrations when this was still a personal project. I won’t go into much detail, but the characters and work were explorations in representing, a sort of visual dialogue with myself, personal hardships that I was scared or in denial of. I kept more of the private info and creative process regarding the artwork to myself and a small group of others; I thought it was something I would just explore in my own time. But since having been reached out to and supported by peers (personally and professionally), I’m looking forward to turning this personal project into something new with others and curious to see what players will take away from it~

We have a lot planned and I’m excited to see where it goes!


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 our project lead started in 2009, which was a collection of characters, story, and artwork relating to her efforts in making sense of and coming to terms with her 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! :])

Hey everyone! I’d like to announce an indie game in development inspired by a personal project from a couple years ago. 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. Announcing Keeper and the Soldier! (KATS for short)



Some of you may have seen some of my early illustrations when this was still a personal project. I won’t go into much detail, but the characters and work were explorations in representing, a sort of visual dialogue with myself, personal hardships that I was scared or in denial of. I kept more of the private info and creative process regarding the artwork to myself and a small group of others; I thought it was something I would just explore in my own time. But since having been reached out to and supported by peers (personally and professionally), I’m looking forward to turning this personal project into something new with others and curious to see what players will take away from it~

We have a lot planned and I’m excited to see where it goes!



The Game

Keeper and the Soldier is a 2-D, stealth 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 and 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.

You’ll explore a rich and beautiful immersive world with a forgotten past and collect clues to its origins.
Stealth through guarded areas using abilities and the environment to your advantage. Go from pushing blocks and throwing stones to holographic powers of manipulation and deception as you explore and outwit your foes. Experience a touching tale of companionship told through two characters with no one left to turn to but each other.

We are honored that Digital Riot wrote an Eye On piece which can be found here.
Indie Game Mag will also be releasing an article on KATS in the near future!

If you are interested in being a part of this project (we also 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! :])
