Orion's Odyssey: A Pattern Blocks Adventure Hits Crowdfunding Target

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Coming to DSiWare and the 3DS eShop later this year

While much of the attention on Kickstarter game projects is often reserved for titles being released on PC and consoles, earlier this month we told you about Orion's Odyssey: A Pattern Blocks Adventure. This is a DSiWare release that's described as a "comedy puzzle" experience, and utilises the touch screen to create objects that are then used in the game world.

Developer Island Officials has pedigree on DS software, having produced Hands On! Tangrams for the handheld in the past. The fundraising goal for this new game was modest, at $4,092, as the studio was keen to acquire the funds to push the release through. That goal has been hit, with a final total of $4,607 meaning that there'll even be a little extra cash for the developer; the title will be coming to DSiWare and, by extension, the 3DS eShop.

You can learn what it's all about in the pitch video below, or check out our interview with Island Officials; the target release is this November.

Even though I really want the game, I had to pull my pledge out because of the uncertainties with multiple languages and EU. The developers said that the game is only going to be in English, and I heard stupid EU laws require games to be in multiple languages. It was the type of thing that made it so London Life couldn't be in the EU versions of Professor Layton And The Spectre's Call/Last Specter a few years back. And with the game already been finished and them being a small developer, I don't know if they would be able to translate the game into multiple languages for a European release if this is the case.

Still, if the game does come out in the UK, I'll get it the day it comes out. I just don't want to throw down $10 for something that has so much uncertainty.

I really don't know very much about this game. Perhaps I should do some research.

I'm glad I pledged, and am very much looking forward to this game. I also had the pleasure to interview Ryan @ Island Officials for Pure Nintendo, and he was great to chat with.

Well I'm glad SOMETHING decent is comming out for Dsi. its been pretty thin Pickin's for us poor Dsi folks... DANG! I know I have a rep for 'Itchin' and Moanin' since we DSI folks don't seem to being treated as if we don't deserve any more but crumbs since the 3DS has gotten popular and we seem to be being DUMPED for the newer handheld (such is gaming life)..... BUT well, we are still " OUT THERE. "... ( via X files) now renamed the" DSI files" (hearing the Xfile theme music in the
