Fans of download games inspired by retro titles should perhaps pay attention to Midora, which has hit its funding target on Kickstarter and will, as a result, eventually arrive on the Wii U and 3DS.
With under a day of funding to go the project has raised over $67,000 of its $60,000 target; despite the Wii U and 3DS versions being listed as a stretch goal for $80,000, all that target will do is accelerate the porting process. The PC version is targeting January 2015, so if that extra target is hit it's conceivable the eShop stores could see the title in a similar timeframe — if not there'll be an additional wait. In any case, pledges of $10 and above will have the choice of a console version.
With an overworld, dungeons and items certainly reminiscent of major '90s titles, this has clearly captured the imagination of its 3000+ backers. Check out the pitch video below and let us know what you think.
Thanks to Matthew for the heads up.
