Prismatic Games' Wii U-centric, asymmetrical, party real time strategy game Hex Heroes reached its $80,000 Kickstarter goal with less than a day to spare, bringing the world one step closer to knowing what a Wii U-centric, asymmetrical, party real time strategy game is.

Prismatic thanked backers in a quick update on their Kickstarter page, promising an "official celebration" later. The crew still has work to do in the final hours of funding, with stretch goals such as added modes and online multiplayer still possible at the $90,000 and $100,000 marks, respectively.

Hex Heroes accommodates 1-5 players. One player mans the Wii U GamePad as the leader, managing resources and giving orders, while up to 4 others share the TV as different classes of characters who fight, build, or gather on the playing field. A PC port has also been announced, but the developers have stated the Wii U will provide the optimal experience.

Hex Heroes is a fresh concept that takes advantage of the Wii U's unique multiplayer potential. It's exciting to see this game garner the support of players who want to see it come to fruition. If you've backed Hex Heroes, let us know why you did below.
