Updates on KickStarterEdit

December 2015Edit

IZD KickStarter Launched

Update #1

Zero_Day has come to Kickstarter!Edit

Welcome, Zero_Day backers! First off, thank you for your great support in making what is shown below a reality. We are happy to announce that Zero_Day was selected as a KS Staff Pick within just 24 hours of the campaign launch.

IZD NOW ON KICKSTARTER
How is Zero_Day doing these days anyway?

Well, we are at 18% of our $400,000 funding goal after only 48 hours. Tomorrow we will make our US-focused media releases which should increase the overall buzz level surrounding Zero_Day. As you know, this first week is critical in turning Zero_Day into the rolling thunder that is required to succeed in funding the campaign and achieving cool stretch goals. So remember to tweet, post on Facebook, and generally evangelize why you believe in this project with your friends, family, and anyone who will listen. Also, hit up your favorite media outlets and get them to cover the Zero_Day story!

Zero_Day Dashboard

As you can see we have a nice trajectory plotted these first two days so lets keep it up!

What is up with Time Limited reward tier?

The Zero_Hour reward tier is our way of saying thanks for your early stage backing of Zero_Day. We think this reward tier is a great value, and it seems that more that 400 of you agree with us!! Due to its popularity, we have decided that every tier above Zero_Hour will also receive the additional rewards (i.e., Implosion Sequel Beta Test & full game Download (on completion of game) + Comic Book (digital). I will clarify this point in our FAQ as well.

Download link for gifs, mobile, and PC wallpapers, and profile badges.

Cool things to help you share the good word about the Zero_Day campaign.

The characters of Zero_Day, Part 1: Man's Best Friend.Edit

Meet K-10, Jonathan Carloway's personal bodyguard and lifelong companion. He truly is man's best friend. Check him out in all his Chrome glory in the 6min Animatic featurette! Link Below!

Back Implosion: Zero_Day at the "Binary_Wolf" tier or above, and receive an exquisite 1:16 K-10 figurine!

Guard_Dog variant: The K-10 AI Binary_Wolf programme was heavily upgraded following the first XADA contact. The weaponised version of K-10 can be deployed at any time by on board nanomachines. It is stronger and more resilient but lacks the speed of the Binary_Wolf variant.

And FINALLY, some crunch for your weekend!

An entertainment companion just for you! The first issue of the Comic! Implosion: Obelisk.

IZD KickStarter Obelisk

Update #8

Kickstarter Featured Film Project of the Day!Edit

ZERO_DAY selected as Kickstarter Featured Film Project of the Day
IZD 35%&more

We've surpassed the 35% mark of our $400,000 funding goal; been chosen as “Kickstarter Featured project in Film & Video”; and our game Implosion - Never Lose Hope received the "iOS Game of the year 2015" award!

Spread the WORD! Your support made this possible and now more people will notice our work!

Artsy sweet bite

The S.L.U.G Subterranean Multi-Purpose Vehicle is both a long-term sustainable habitat and a mobile weapons platform. In the post-apocalyptic world of ZERO_DAY, safety is not something often afforded to the few survivors who remain. The S.L.U.G. is one of the only places that the characters can expect to survive more than a few minutes while on the surface. The mobile habitat can recycle water, generate food sources, and mount a reasonable defence against some lower-tier XADA mutaforms. The S.L.U.G. is best suited to "run and gun" tactics, high-speed maneuvers, and using its contingent of drone craft to distract the enemy.

The ZERO_HOUR tier is coming to an end!

The time has come to bring down this amazing reward tier now capped at 850 backers. But fear not! Every backer who pledges for a reward tier higher than ZERO_HOUR will receive the rewards of that tier in addition to those of the ZERO_HOUR reward tier, so don't hesitate to upgrade!!

Social Movement

As many of you are aware, we've been recruiting evangelists that share your passion and ours to spread the word to a wider audience on various platforms. We are now fielding a 10-strong posse and look forward to all of your social participation!

We're also giving THUNDERCLAP a go and we need to have ALL our backers there for support! Achieving the 250 people by Friday gives the Implosion: ZERO_DAY automatic social media exposure! http://thndr.me/GF8pCP

Creator FeatureEdit

IZD Donna Burke

“I’m thrilled to have the chance to keep working with such a prestigious indie studio as Rayark. They’re all so talented but more importantly fun to work with, NICE and with huge integrity. Going to Taiwan to meet the Rayark team was a highlight for me in December 2014- I’ve been so inspired by them and what their creative vision is." Donna had a huge year in 2015 singing "Glassy Sky” for the anime Tokyo Ghoul, singing and voice acting for the award winning MGSV Phantom Pain and singing and writing lyrics for "Way in the Dark” for Implosion.

IZD Kevin Penkin

"I’ve been working on the IMPLOSION franchise in some capacity for nearly 2 years. The experience when first creating music for such a wonderful world was incredibly inspiring. This next exciting step in the IMPLOSION universe with “Zero Day”, is not only bold, but exciting, and it’s an honour to contribute music to this wonderful project."

"As a child I spent a lot of time in Taiwan (half of my relatives still live there) so I am thrilled to see the recent growth of the animation industry in Taiwan, a country that I love. The themes in the Implosion universe are those that I am naturally drawn to, as I've always been a big nerd for sci-fi, and have spent countless hours contemplating our significance in the greater universe. It's creative projects like ZERO_DAY that allow us to reflect upon our own humanity that are the most exciting and why I am eager to see Implosion: ZERO_DAY, with your help, come to life."

Stefanie Joosten // Voice Actor
IZD Stefanie Joosten

"Having been a sci-fi and mecha anime fan since my childhood, I was very thrilled to be approached by the Rayark team to do voice work for Implosion: ZERO_DAY.

Update #31

Heroes Are Remembered But Legends Never DieEdit

What does it feel like to be the "Last Man Standing" on Earth? Implosion game update 1.2 recently rolled out a new playable character who is also featured in ZERO_DAY.

Last Man Standing1

"Last Man Standing" features the revered Jonathan Carloway, uncle of "Implosion - Never Lose Hope" main protagonist Jake. For a certain reason, this Warmech II did not flee with the rest of the human population back during the great migration in the movie; instead he stayed behind to fight alone on Earth.

IZD The First Wave

His whereabouts were unknown, until the game chapter begins with him 20 years later in hot pursuit of Goldie to stumble upon a Nightwing fighter aircraft by surprise. To unravel the mystery behind this accidental encounter, Jonathan and his trusty sidekick K-10 wander into “Silent Chamber”, where they come face to face with the shocking truth.

IZD tun into a cat

While we're still occupied with bringing more talent onto the team and managing backer surveys as mentioned in Update #30, if you're not quite overwhelmed yet with the adrenaline rush from being the "Last Man Standing", why not prove your abilities in the pilot program and see if you can make it out alive?

Please stay tuned for more news straight out of the Implosion universe!

  • Clarification regarding "Implosion: Obelisk Comic Book": We have previously released previews of the first 3 "chapters" and will continue to do so until the movie's premiere. They will all be included in the one final comic and not as separate "books", apologies for any confusion.

Update #32

The Upcoming "Implosion: SUBZERO_DAY TOUR"Edit

This update contains subject matter that may be disturbing to some backers, viewer discretion is strongly advised. What you are about to witness may result in uncontrollable excitement, if experiencing photosensitive epilepsy do not proceed any further and consult your physician immediately.

We are proud to present the "Implosion: SUBZERO_DAY TOUR"; an out of this world music festival that will justify our existence, featuring all your favorite characters complete with interstellar instrumentals! The date was scheduled for Feb 30th, but due to unforeseen circumstances the tour will be postponed to Apr 31st! Never lose hope in case you're not able to join our after party aboard the Nightstar, we don't give up on the ones we love and may be planning to visit a city near you when we're back in the future!

On the road we came across a few unpleasant scenarios that forced us to cancel our original plans, which are all documented here for your entertainment.

Log Entry: 01 (Jonathan) -- GPS malfunctioned and lead us astray, stranded in middle of nowhere infested by unknown species of vegetable.

[[File:IZD_Apr_Fool1.png|center]

Log Entry: 02 (Faye) -- Every man for himself fighting to survive, food supplies and crucial resources run dangerously below threshold.

IZD Apr Fool2

Log Entry: 03 (Isabella) -- Haven't reached agreement yet on Plan B, barely able to keep civilized behavior and shots are fired for personal attacks.

IZD Apr Fool3

Log Entry: 04 (K-10) -- Sudden onslaught of die hard fans close in from all directions, hastily manage to get costume dressed for showtime.

IZD Apr Fool4

Perhaps next time we get lost on an impromptu safari you're tempted to grab some brain buckets and ride with us? Hope y'all enjoyed our April Fools' comical relief, meanwhile let us know in the comments how you would caption this picture ;)

Update #33

"Faye" High, We're Reaching For The SkyEdit

It's been a while since visiting this part of the universe, hope none of you have jumped ship from the NIGHTSTAR yet! As you may have noticed since our last communication, we've been busy keeping XADA off our trail before they snatch the backer rewards; since the SLUG tour bus was unexpectedly damaged our movement speed greatly decreased ever since.

Backers please note we no longer intend to use BackerKit and will send backer surveys via the default Kickstarter system. Due to certain restrictions we will only be able to send the backer surveys once, and as we wouldn't want your rewards to fall in the wrong hands, backer surveys won't be sent until late 2017/early 2018 in case you need to request an address change by then. Rest assured you will be able to specify clothing sizes, select add-ons and include other pledge details by then, meanwhile let's get to know a bit more about the solider who guarded the goodies:

IZD Faye Concept1

Faye is Isabella’s adopted sister. She, like Isabella, lost her home and her family, and this creates a strong bond between them. She wants Isabella and Jon to work out their problems, and does whatever she can to help, as the end is coming fast.

IZD Faye Concept2

This strong female character with a mysterious relationship between our male protagonist Jonathan will be voiced by the lovely Stefanie Joosten! Uh oh, after announcing that breaking news there seems to be a rumble in the jungle, looks like the bad boys are back so see you next time!

IZD Aerial Attack

Update #34

Ladies And Gentlemen, Here Comes LT. "Jonathan"Edit

If you've ever played "Implosion: Never Lose Hope" since the game's last update, perhaps you'll notice something interesting about the new playable character. Unlike the previous Warmech III's Avalon and Crimson, which are controlled by Jake and Diana respectively, Jonathan's battle suit doesn't have it's own distinctive codename. That's because he sports an older generation WM II, with the main difference being worn as is and not controlled from an external location with his consciousness. Let's take a closer look at the beating heart inside the metal armor:

IZD Jonthan Concept1

Jonathan is a revered officer in the most advanced army on earth. He has no regard for himself against the safety of others and duty to him is paramount. His ability on the battlefield far outweighs his emotional capability, and his heart is clumsy albeit with good intentions.

IZD Jonthan Concept2

He struggles to deal with having a surrogate daughter, the humble tribes girl Isabella who’s life he saved. He doesn’t know what she needs or what she wants, and simply can’t handle being a leader and a father at the same time.

IZD Jonthan Concept3

The damaged SLUG is repaired and fully functioning, but K-10 has gone missing while escaping the XADA, and Jonathan won't hesitate to go back and follow his footsteps into oblivion. No one gets left behind but anything could happen, perhaps there will be an ultimate sacrifice that leads to Jonathan's wrongly assumed death for many years to come?

Update #35

Goodfellas Are Rough But "Isabella" Is ToughEdit

Our two previous characters seem physically capable of taking on the XADA themselves, but it takes more than desperately packing a punch to win a fight you're on the verge of losing. Sometimes battles go under the surface undetected like the war we wage on the planet, a impersonal thing living in the distant future that hits the hardest when it's far too late to realize the truth. But not everyone turns a blind eye to the changes despite struggling to make sense of everything, so let's read the signs of mental strength hidden behind this innocent face:

IZD Isabella Concept1

Isabella is a young girl and the last living of her tribe, found wandering in the forest by Jonathan who rescued her. After her entire village was devastated from a brutal wipeout she's lost everything dear to heart; but she does not lose her humanity as she finds solace in Faye and guides mankind on a journey of self discovery.

IZD Isabella Concept2

She may have been taken under the protective wing of Jonathan, but she longs for his approval and fatherly affection as the two have trouble understanding each other. They eventually move closer to the center of themselves while moving further away from home, and in the end she finally gets the connection she's always wanted, even if only for a split second. So make sure you pay attention, these cherished moments in life tend to pass in the blink of an eye.

Update #36

The Good And Not Too Bad, Where's The Ugly?Edit

Now that you've seen our good and not too bad guys, it's time to direct our undivided attention to the perceived ugly. Some of you may have had a fleeting glimpse of the XADA back in Update #14, but what would happen if humans were to fall at the hands of malicious mercy? Once infected a pretty appearance is not to be gained unlike botox, yet our story's face of morality appears among these aliens hailing from the darkest corners of the universe. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, if only you could see what I've seen through their eyes...

IZD XADA Conpect1

XADA (Xeno-Atrial Diatridic Automaton), the name scientists gave to the entity basically means "a group of foreign cells which can think, much like tiny individual brains". When the cells come into contact with other organic life, they mutate and fortify it. The terrifying thing that sets the XADA apart from other bacterium and viral strains, is that a XADA organism can physically alter itself to make use of synthetic materials. In this way, XADA can give rise to half beast-half machine monstrosities.

IZD XADA Conpect2

So where are we stashing part of the backer rewards for now? Feel free to come by Rayark Concept if you're in Taiwan, where we sell some of Implosion's official merch and also have a 230 cm tall Avalon figurine established as our guardian. And even if not, we still have plenty of room upon the Nightstar so invite more friends to come join the ride!

Update #37

Bang Bang Into The Room, We're Coming For Ya!Edit

Trick or treat, give us something good to see! Even though Halloween just passed not long ago, there are rumors that the monsters have not returned to hiding in your closets and are still roaming the streets. Never fear if the XADA are here in your neighbourhood, and don't be alarmed either if you've seen the butcher, as the Warmechs will protect each and every one of you from harm!

IZD Happy RayarKween

We know it's been quiet during the past few months, as our close encounter with the 3rd kind was coming to a deadlock. Since someone accidentally shot down the sheriff who was still dressed up in costume, along the way we've recruited some new blood and we'd like to proudly introduce our latest addition to the Implosion: ZERO_DAY team:

IZD Miyao Yoshikazu

Aren't you impressed with the talent joining the IVONIX force? But since most of us mere mortals can't throw a five finger death punch, and our squad goals tell us don't bring a knife to a gun fight. In this case we've brought out part of our arsenal to help make your combat game strong, but as full metal jackets don't just start hailing from the skies whenever needed, y'all better not follow Isabella and ungratefully start sneaking jelly doughnuts into your footlockers instead, because the XADA won't catch a grenade for ya...

IZD Hand Grenade

The IVONIX standard issue SGG (self-guided grenade) is a versatile hi-explosive thanks to its adjustable charge selector and on-board propulsion system. Blast radius can be set on the fly, ensuring the user's safety when deployed in close quarters. Utilising maximum power settings, however, the SGG can cripple heavily armoured combatants, bridges and building supports.

IZD Hand Gun

Although out of commission for over seventy years, the Rapier-X11 is Jonathan Carloway's sidearm of choice. A vintage handgun which uses solid rounds instead of energy modules, this entirely mechanical weapon is immune to electrical countermeasures and system hacking of any kind.

IZD Beam Gun

The IVONIX PPR (plasma-pulse rifle) is the workhorse of the infantry. A zero-point energy module ensures the weapon can sustain fire indefinitely without risk of overheating or running dry on ammunition. Each unit is ID-linked to its operator.

IZD Railgun

The Sabretooth is a devastating weapon used only by highly trained IVONIX heavy weapons teams. Although portable, the railgun must deploy into a fixed position before firing, to compensate for the extreme recoil.

Now that we're all set for the next escapade, time to kick down some doors and get a move on! Which of the above mentioned is your weapon of choice? Let us know in the comments!

2017Edit

Update #38

Come What May, Transmission Received From NIGHTSTAR...Edit

We’ve received some mysterious signals from outer space recently, which was brought immediately to the IVONIX’s attention. Please hold, deciphering message now...

In the quest to bring you a truly cinematic experience, we have experimented with various styles of compositing. Our "Five-minute pre-production comparison" shows a sample of each of these styles, those being a typical 3D-approach and a 2D cel-shaded one. It should be obvious to the discerning viewer, which scenes used which technique.

In contrast to the pre-production test, the final 90-minute feature film uses a consistent compositing technique that wholly grasps the 2D aesthetic and requires large amounts of hand-painting. As technology progresses, 3D anime is able to look more and more like hand-drawn 2D, and we are keeping it under wraps, for now.

As you are all part of this journey, and hungry for updates, we have decided to release a 1-minute pre-production short, giving you a taste of the different styles that were experimented with during our first trial phase. While production continues, backers will be getting sneak peeks before the rest of the public does.

Once again, a shoutout thanks for your undying support and undiminished interest, the IZD team will continue to work hard and deliver more exciting content very soon! So without further ado, please enjoy the Official Opening Scene Teaser for Implosion: ZERO_DAY!
