  • News Children of Morta Hits Stretch Goal to Confirm Wii U Release

    Pixel-based hack 'n slash oh my!

    While the standard of many Indie games is truly on another level when compared with the formative days of download gaming, there's often a level of deja-vu and familiarity in their appearance. With engines like Unity prominent small developers have a challenge to make their titles look unique; as a result we think...

  • News Sneaky Ninja Infiltrates Kickstarter

    Touted as "Mario meets Mark of the Ninja"

    Ninja come in several different varieties, but few seem to be as round or whimsical as those in Stafall Studios' Sneaky Ninja. The egg-like masters of shadow are the focus of a Kickstarter campaign with a Wii U release as one of the main goals. According to the Sneaky Ninja Kickstarter page, the game plans...

  • News Nintendo Quest Scores More than $40,000 at Kickstarter's End

    NES game stretch goal achieved

    In a digital era of eShoppery and Virtual Consolitude, do people still want to see a documentary about hunting for old, gray NES carts on a road trip? Well, yes. Yes, they do. The Nintendo Quest Kickstarter ended this past weekend with a grand total of $40,286. The goal set by the campaign was $1,000, with the project...

  • News Mobile Pokémon Clone Eco Spirits Hatches A Kickstarter Campaign

    No stretch goals set for an “Eco Spirits Rap”, though

    Nintendo stated earlier this week that it currently had no plans to make or release any games — be they full size or mini — on mobile devices. This may have pleased some fans of the company, but it may also have disappointed others. If you fit in to the latter category, fear not — just...

  • News Monochroma Release Delayed on All Platforms

    Nowhere Studios provides an unofficial new release window for Wii U

    Last year we directed your attention to Monochroma, a successfully crowdfunded project that promises much with a 1950s dystopian setting and attractive visuals. A puzzle platformer with four chapters weighing in at around 90 minutes each, it scraped past its target to secure...

  • Weirdness An Album You Can Remix On Your Game Boy Advance

    Making music with an old friend

    The charming blips and scratching synth of chiptune soundtracks has never really lost its appeal among gamers and musicians alike, with many examples of retro sounds being used in new projects even today. From Anamanaguchi to I Fight Dragons, there's plenty out there to discover, and now electronic pop maestro Doctor...

  • News Kickstarter Research Highlights Low Delivery Rates of Game Projects

    Delays are also common

    A number of Wii U — and to a lesser extent 3DS — projects have emerged through crowdfunding platform Kickstarter. Some have arrived with publisher support, such as Cloudberry Kingdom, other examples like Shovel Knight are legitimately well on the way, and a series of others are well into development or a little way off...

  • News Kickstarter Campaign Launches For ReVeN

    Metroid-inspired game includes Wii U in main target

    A new Kickstarter campaign has been launched by Texas-based indie developer Varia Games for a 2D shooter/platformer called ReVeN. The title, which draws inspiration from classic games such as Metroid and Mega Man, could be coming to Wii U — as well as PC, Mac and Linux — if its $18,000 target...

  • News Unsung Story: Tale of the Guardians Campaign Drastically Reduces 3DS Target

    It's now feasible

    Just over a week ago we told you about the Unsung Story: Tale of the Guardians Kickstarter campaign, which has Yasumi Matsuno on board. If you're unaware, Matsuno-san has worked on and been responsible for a diverse range of games, such as Final Fantasy Tactics Advance on GBA, Tactics Ogre on Super NES, MadWorld on Wii and the...

  • News La-Mulana 2 Emerges Through a Kickstarter Campaign

    Meaty Wii U and 3DS stretch goals included

    La-Mulana was one of the last high-quality titles to grace the WiiWare service, undergoing delays and various issues before eventually hitting the service worldwide — it was a success-story on PC, notably, becoming the first Japanese game to be 'greenlit' on Steam. There are a number of vocal fans of the...

  • News Mega Man Board Game Kickstarter Destroys Boss, Gets Money Beam

    PayPal backing still possible

    In further proof that the words "Mega Man" cause a violent reaction in money that makes it leap out of wallets and hurl itself kamikaze-like into screens, the Kickstarter for the Mega Man Board Game ended yesterday with almost six times the funding it initially requested. Jasco Games's Kickstarter finished at around...

  • News Quest Begins To Find The Best Game Boy Tetris Player In The United Kingdom

    Block buster

    Since the release of the excellent King of Kong, it's fair to say that the world of video game high-score chasing has become a little more respectable. The documentary showed that the people who post these amazing scores are necessarily locking themselves away in rooms for weeks at a time; they're normal people with families and jobs...

  • News Yasumi Matsuno On Board For "Unsung Story" Kickstarter Campaign

    A high price to see it on 3DS anytime soon

    Kickstarter projects are quick to mention any star members of the production team, and when you've got one as big as the acclaimed Yasumi Matsuno on-board, it's pretty understandable. Unsung Story: Tale of the Guardians will be the most ambitious title to date from developer Playdek, which is previously...

  • Video Learn How To Play Mega Man: The Board Game

    Figure out the rules and power-up with this sample playthrough

    Let's forget all about consoles for a moment. Mega Man is an icon that defies the medium, up there among the greats and immortalised in song, literature, and even Lego. He's had a shot at just about everything by now, and in December we reported that an officially l
