Kindred Fates hits Kickstarter stretch goal, officially coming to Switch

Stretching for Switch

Kindred Fates' initial Kickstarter goal was $50k, but that didn't include a Switch release. To make that happen, the Kickstarter would have to reach the $150k stretch goal. While that might have seem a bit too far off just a couple weeks ago, we're very happy to say that the goal has now been hit! The game will be officially making its way to Switch at some point in 2023.

If you want to check out more details on what Kindred Fates is all about, you can check out the official Kickstarter here.

The Wonderful 101: Remastered Kickstarter hits the 2D side-scrolling adventure "Luka's First Mission" stretch goal, new stretch goals added

What a wonderful announcement!

Another day, another stretch goal shattered for The Wonderful 101: Remastered. The last stretch goal reached was the Time Attack mode, but today gives us something a lot more juicy.

With the Kickstarter sitting at $1.5 million, fans will now be able to enjoy a new 2D side-scrolling adventure called Luka's First Mission. We don't have any other details on this content just yet, and we don't even know how it will be distributed. Whether it's included in The Wonderful 101: Remastered or to be released separately remains to be seen. As soon as more details are shared, we'll bring them to you.

The Kickstarter has also been updated with two more stretch goals. At $1.75 million, a remixed soundtrack will be included, and it features a special guest. At the $2 million mark, we'll get Luka's Second Mission.

Thanks to RobRmanX for the heads up!

Pixel-art arcade adventure 'Battle Axe' trying to secure funding for Switch release on Kickstarter, physical option planned

The old Battle Axe

Battle Axe can be played solo or in local co-op by two people, with players choosing their preferred hero before embarking on their quest. Each hero has a projectile attack to tackle the enemy from afar, as well as a short-range attack, special abilities to give them a momentary advantage, and they can also can pickup items which have a variety of effects.

Does Battle Axe look like something you'd like to help bring to Switch? The dev team is looking for $53k to make that happen, and it seems they've lined up a partner for a retail release as well. If you want to kick in some cash, you can do so right here.

Chicken Wiggle Workshop Kickstarter provides a status update on the game

A note to backers, and a new look at the game

Chicken Wiggle Workshop, an enhanced version of Chicken Wiggle for Switch, was successfully funded via Kickstarter. The project was originally set to launch in Dec. of 2018, but developer Atooi later stated that that date wouldn't happen. A new date wasn't set, and fans are still waiting for the game to arrive.

Atooi has shared two updates on the game's Kickstarter in recent days, and you can find a snippet of each below. Click over to read the full updates.

Great Expectations!

A backer on Atooi's discord posted a thought about their belief that KS backers are more like publishers than customers. My jagged little pill is below. Warning: unpopular opinion to follow. :)

The belief that backers are akin to a publisher is not accurate and will only lead to frustration for anyone who believes it is true. This will not be a popular thing to say, but it has to be said. One promise was made with the CWW kickstarter: to deliver an enhanced version of Chicken Wiggle for the Nintendo Switch. I am sorry that the delivery date is significantly later than estimated, but our promise has not changed.

Work-in-Progress Update: Slumber Tower

I am currently working on taking Michael’s awesome HD art and slicing it up into 96x96 tiles so they can be used in the game engine. There are some elements that still need to be setup properly, such as the correct low res gem pick-up displaying properly in retro mode. Here are two work-in-progress comparison screenshots from the game engine, showing the two modes you can toggle between (retro/HD). The tiny texture detail on the blue thread really shows the difference in resolution!
