This game looks gorgeous
While some may not be fans of crowdfunded games, it'd be churlish to disregard them entirely, especially as promising titles such as Cloudberry Kingdom and Shovel Knight are coming to Nintendo platforms courtesy of receiving vital funds through their own campaigns. Sometimes projects of undeniable quality emerge, and one that seems to fit the bill at this early stage is Monochroma by Nowhere Studios.
Based in Turkey, Nowhere Studios comes to Kickstarter with a large part of the project ready, with the goal of the fundraising being to help the company through the final months of finishing content and refining the game. Set in a 1950s dystopia, Monochromia is a puzzle platformer with a visual style that can be equated to popular download title Limbo, with four distinct areas to be explored by two brothers. The target is for each area to be a chapter that's roughly 90 minutes long.
The main target platforms are PC, Mac and Linux for December, but it's been confirmed that if the target's hit the title should come to Wii U by May 2014, as the studio looks to reach as many platforms as possible. At the time of writing the campaign has reached over $25,000 of an $80,000 target with 24 days to go.
