The Girl and the Robot

Last week we reported that indie developer, Flying Carpets, had added a Wii U eShop stretch goal to its Kickstarter campaign for The Girl and the Robot, after achieving the project's initial goal of $15,000 CAD. The title, which draws inspiration from classic games such as The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Ico, has managed to reach its $25,000 CAD stretch goal in the space of a week, with just hours left to go on the campaign.

As soon as the target had been met, Flying Carpets updated its Kickstarter page to say:

Congratulation[sic] everyone!

We just broke the 25 000$ stretch goal arrow which is the much anticipated Wii U port of The Girl and the Robot!

All pledges of 25$ or higher can now receive the downloadable Wii U version when we finish creating the game!

We still have 14 hours left! Keep on supporting us through the end!


For those who’ve been waiting for the Wii U port to become official before making a pledge towards the project, you still have until 9.56am EST (2.56pm GMT) today to grab yourself a copy for $25 CAD. The Girl and the Robot has an estimated release window of December 2014.
