Monochroma Hits Funding Target to Confirm Multi-Platform Release, Including Wii U
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
Put May 2014 in the diary
Love it or loath it, Kickstarter has brought us some promising projects to date, with Shovel Knight the next in line that originated on the platform and is due in the coming months on the Wii U and 3DS eShop stores. Another game full of potential is Monochroma, which came to the crowdfunding platform with a lot of its content ready — including a PC demo — and sought funds to complete remaining chapters, polish the game and bring it to additional platforms.
We previously told you about this game in late July, and since then it's had a tough grind to its $80,000 target. The good news is that, with around a day remaining, that target has finally been hit to secure the necessary funding. The title will hit PC, Mac and Linux first in December this year, while there are estimated releases dates (though the platforms are confirmed) of March 2014 for PS4 and, pleasingly, May 2014 for Wii U.
Developer Nowhere studios has noted a great deal of support from within the gaming industry and other developers to reach its goal, and it's easy to see why they want the project to progress. With striking visuals and four distinct, 90 minute chapters, we certainly hope to see more in the coming weeks.
The pitch video is below, one again, so is this one that you're interested in?
