Lilt Line Developer Seeks Crowdfunding for Sequel and Includes a Wii U Stretch Goal
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
Gaijin Games published the original, from different cloth, on WiiWare
WiiWare enthusiasts among you may remember Lilt Line, the WiiWare title developed by different cloth and published by Gaijin Games, the latter being particularly well-known for its BIT.TRIP series. The concept was simple, as you guided a line down increasingly tricky tracks while following a beat to some funky tunes; we were certainly fans in our Lilt Line review.
Different cloth is now back on its own to publish a sequel, lilt line too!. As is often the case with small developer projects now, it's taken to Kickstarter to raise funds; its original £15,000 goal is for an iOS version. Since the campaign launched, however, different cloth has been offered a loan Wii U dev kit and has added a stretch goal of $45,000 to bring the game to the Wii U eShop.
This new entry, if funded, is targeting a release in July 2014, will have 3D levels — as opposed to just top-down — 20 full-song length stages, collaborative local multiplayer and competitive online multiplayer. The music will be provided by American musician ill.gates.
You should certainly check out the fairly light-hearted, humorous pitch-video below, and the game does look like a promising expansion on the original. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
