Zelda-Inspired Action RPG Cryamore Could Be Coming To Wii U

Posted by Damien McFerran

Kickstarter stretch goal added

Kickstarter-funded action RPG Cryamore could be coming to the Wii U according to its development team.

The title has already smashed through its initial goal of $60,000 and currently sits at $142,673 with twelve days to go. If it reaches $250,000 by that point, ports to the Wii U, Xbox 360 and PS3 will be secure.

Developer NostalgiCO lists The Legend of Zelda, Metroid and Secret of Mana as inspirations, which certainly bodes well for the game.

The screens and artwork shown so far look incredibly promising:

Thanks to uel for the tip.

That is the best 10 minute video you will watch all week. Wow, I'm seriously impressed that came from indepedent developers. You bring that to the Wii U eshop, and I'll buy it in a heartbeat knowing they can create that funny of dialogue.

You might want to mention the bit from the FAQ, about choosing which console you want the reward on. Specifically this part.

"Will we be able to select the digital platform we'd like?

Yeah, our plan is to provide backers with an option of picking the digital platform of choice, depending on if specific platforms are unlocked. We will clarify this when we send out surveys after everything is said and done!"

I wasn't going to back the project while I thought the kickstarter only got you a PC version, as if often the case with kickstarters (for example, Pier Solar). Now, I'll be keeping an eye on it, if it looks like it'll reach the stretch goal, I'm all in!

A lot of Zelda inspiration recently, huh? I'll certainly keep an eye on it. After watching the whole video (now that's advertising done right!); I'll totally support it and get it if released on the Wii U.

Can't complain. The Wii never got support like this.

I know they haven't reached the target yet, but Pier Solar was in the same boat - and maybe we'll be thanking the PS3/360 crowd when they help bring the total up to a level that will ensure a Wii U port.

No, this won't be on your list of eShop games this year. Know how I know? They've listed a January 2014 release date for Cryamore. Still, if it gets a Wii U version, I'll be buying it.

I've decided to plonk down the minimal pledge for a PC version, but if it gets closer to a wii u version being a reality, I'll upgrade to the digital soundtrack, because the music is gorgeous. I encourage everyone to go to the kickstarter page and give it a listen.

And there goes, the Wii U is showing a really promising future as the new house of indies among consoles.

Despite it's on my "to get" list doesn't necessarily mean that I would get it this year, it's just a list of interesting titles I heard this year that I planned to get or check out when the game actually does exist.

Love it, like I said on the forums, 2013 - rise of the Indies - if big publishers fail to support Wii U, all the Indies will find a comfy home on Nintendo's "U" .

It has to reach $225,000, actually. :P

OK. A few things! Bliss is totally hott! I have a thing for redheads and ahem busty ones too...
Secondly how much did it cost to make that 'video'? Surely we don't want the money going to more and more videos of 10minutes in length do we?

Those sprites look...weird to me. They don't seem to mesh well with the backround. Hopefully it's just a work in progress. I really want to know the credits for this game...I have a feeling it's a South American artist. Just a hunch. Wrong, main artists are from The US (one of which worked for UDON!). Though the Sprite Artist is Japanese.

Just backed this as my first kickstarter backing. I really hope it makes it to 225,000 for the WiiU version.
