German developer Bumblebee launched a Kickstarter for a new turn-based RPG, Days of Dawn, late last month. PC, Mac, and Linux were the game’s only confirmed platforms, but the indie team announced last Friday that it has become a Wii U developer. Bumblebee said that a Wii U version “is now within reach” and it would be “a dream platform for the game.”

Days of Dawn only has until mid-Sunday to reach its $50,000 goal. Currently, the total stands at $27,392. It’ll be tough to raise another $23,000 (give or take) in less than a week, but it’d certainly be nice to see another indie effort on Wii U.

You can find more information about Days of Dawn here.

Toki Tori 2 used to be a 1080p game. It’s now presented in 720p, but the slight downgrade in resolution will be worth it. Developer Two Tribes confirmed on Twitter today that Toki Tori 2 will now run at 60 frames-per-second as opposed to 30.
