Life of Pixel Could Make It To Wii U Should It Meet Kickstarter Stretch Goal

Posted by Andy Green

The Vita platformer is hoping to jump onto other systems

UK-based developer Super Icon is behind the fun-looking Life of Pixel, which is available to download now on PlayStation Vita.

It plays like a platform game and allows you to progress through several eras of gaming by giving you a broad selection of levels based on various classic old-school consoles including the Atari 2600, Sinclair ZX81, ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64, Amstrad CPC464, BBC Model B, GameBoy, NES and Sega Master System.

Super Icon would like to bring the game to other platforms including PC, Mac, iOS and Android and has therefore started a Kickstarter campaign to obtain the funding. Should it acquire £10,000 the game will make it to the aforementioned platforms, but should it meet its stretch goal then a Wii U version will be made as well as a PlayStation 3 and OUYA adaptation.

The money will also be used to add levels and achievements as well as some online leaderboards to keep the game fresh. There'll also be more classic 8-bit music on the way.

At the time of writing there are 27 days left for the goal to be reached so there's plenty of time for it to amass enough funding for a Wii U version.

Ooooh, British developer!

The game looks mediocre though. I can't really say I would buy it given the opportunity. What is its main distinguishing feature? The different styles to match the different eras and systems of videogames?

I'm sure they want to bring it to other consoles besides the Vita, which Sony said it predicts only 5 million sales for this entire year - compared to 7 million last year (also includes PSP sales). Being a Vita exclusive is not a good business plan.

Just thought I'ld throw that out there for WiiU comparison purposes.

Lol, when I saw the title, I thought of Pixel as in the cave story developer. I was hoping for a sequel

Looks awesome, but probably not much chance of it making the stretch goals. Too many retro systems which won't be familiar to an American audience... I'm guessing they wouldn't be very familiar with Spectrums, Amstrads or BBCs...
