Kickstarter is still a notable source of funding for developers of various sizes, helping projects get over the finishing line. Now BRAMBLETYNE, a company with a track record in comic books and smart device apps, is seeking a small amount of funding to bring its next project to New 3DS.

This potential game is Space Probe, which could come to iOS and Android as well as Nintendo's latest portable. With lead game designer Adam-James Foulkes at the helm, this project also has Duncan Guttridge involved - he's working on box and general art, with a track record that includes artwork for the likes of Sonic the Hedgehog 2.

The game itself is described as a "retro-inspired casual game about collecting monsters & exploring the universe". Planned as a game for short, relaxing bursts of gameplay, you control your customised ship on an outward journey avoiding monsters, before collecting them on the way back; after that you research the monsters and upgrades for your probe.

It looks like a pleasant title and it certainly has a charming aesthetic. It's only seeking £1000 for its core goal, with the New Nintendo 3DS version requiring £5000.
