Remember Goodboy Galaxy, the new Game Boy Advance game that hit Kickstarter towards the end of last month? Well, we're happy to report that the project has smashed its funding goals – and that's an understatement.
With the campaign now wrapped up, Goodboy Galaxy surpassed 1000% funding, with almost 4,000 backers generating a whopping £203,929 in total. The original goal was a relatively modest £18,000, so you could certainly say the whole thing's been something of a success.
That tremendous level of funding means that every stretch goal has been met, with physical editions headed to both Game Boy Advance and Switch. If you missed the campaign but still want to get your hands on a copy, you can pre-order here up until 3rd October (as long as you order by that date, you'll still receive all of the benefits offered to Kickstarter backers including a mention in the credits, the soundtrack, and more).
First Press Games, who will be handling the physical versions of the game, has shared the following:
"The Kickstarter campaign of Goodboy Galaxy surpassed 1000% funding and reached all its stretchgoals, containing packaged versions of the GBA and Switch version and enhancements to the game!
Thus, the development and preparations for the physical versions will move forward full steam going forth!"
"A large slice from the early physical sales will go straight into the development budget of Goodboy Galaxy, so if you decide to book your copy early, you will contribute to make the game as good as it possibly can be!"
