There are a few key methods to help ensure success on Kickstarter, and one of them is producing a pitch video that shows genuine progress for the project. Blasphemous, a 2D action title, put gameplay at the focus of its pitch and smashed its modest $50,000 goal in about 24 hours, and has now raised over $170,000.

The latest campaign update has now confirmed that - with a new partner on board to manage ports - the game will launch simultaneously across all platforms, including Switch. Developer The Game Kitchen has set a target release window of November 2018.

This certainly looks rather promising and could be one to watch for next year.

With thanks to Agent721 for the heads up.
