Paradise Lost: First Contact has a chance of coming to Wii U. If the Kickstarter manages to reach $250,000 in funding, it’ll be guaranteed a release on Nintendo’s platform. There would be plans to offer specific controls for the GamePad.

Paradise Lost: First Contact features side-scrolling stealth, puzzles, and even a tinge of horror. The Kickstarter campaign itself needs to reach $70,000 in order to be funded. It’ll have until December 1 to do so.

You can donate to the campaign here.

Yesterday, a small indie team launched its “The Girl and the Robot” Kickstarter. The new game is a third-person, action-adventure title set in a fantasy world.

“The game brings the thrills of classic games such as The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Ico, and pairs them with the sense of wonder and adventure found in animated movies such as those from Studio Ghibli,” the project’s Kickstarter states.

Nintendo fans will be pleased to hear that the team plans to talk with the Big N about releasing The Girl and the Robot on Wii U. Nothing is set in stone, though I can’t see anything preventing a release on the system.

You can check out the official The Girl and the Robot Kickstarter here. $15,000 CAD needs to be raised by November 28. Over $3,000 CAD has been collected thus far.

Update: Sharr has since retracted his original Kickstarter update – you can find the latest post here.

Earlier this year, a small indie team launched a Kickstarter for “Roam”. The survival simulator draws quite a few similarities to the recently-released How to Survive. Creator Ryan Sharr now claims in a Kickstarter update that 505 Games and Eko Software carried out ‘blatant theft’ for use in their own project.

It’s true that Roam and How to Survive share many of the same ideas, but Sharr isn’t making accusations out of the blue. Games do tend to share similar concepts from time to time, but 505 Games actually contacted Sharr during the Kickstarter campaign in hopes of arranging a publishing deal. It was refused, and 505 Games ended up announcing – and launching – How to Survive just a few months later.

Sharr has not yet determined how he will proceed. You can find his full notice after the break, which should give you better insight into the situation.

Knite & The Ghost Lights has reached its funding goal on Kickstarter. Last night, the game surpassed its $35,000 target.

That’s good news for Nintendo fans. Now that Knite & The Ghost Lights has been funded, a Wii U version has been secured.


A rather interesting reward tier has been added to the Boogerman 20th Anniversary Kickstarter. Those who pledge $40 or more will receive access to a new two-player co-op mode featuring Earthworm Jim. Exclusive levels and a t-shirt are also included as part of the pledge.

You Are Not The Hero, a new action platform RPG, recently reached its funding goal on Kickstarter. The game will be coming to PC followed by support for other OS platforms such as Mac and Linux.

You Are Not The Hero’s Kickstarter success begs the question: could we see console versions as well? At the very least, creator Donn Manalili sounds open to the possibility.

Manalili said the following when 4 color rebellion asked if Wii U, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One ports would be considered:

“We want to focus on the PC and other OS ports first before we think about porting to consoles. Of course, consoles ports would be absolutely amazing and if we’re able to do that then we will. it’s a matter of funding, time, and engine capability. At this point, all three of those are questionable.”


CrashGem could bring its new 3D RPG “Churbles” to Wii U. As of now, the studio is seeking funding through Kickstarter, and if funded, it’ll head to the console.

A total of $15,000 is needed in order to reach Churbles’ funding goal. With over $4,000 already raised, there’s a good chance that goal will be met within the next four weeks.

Elemental-Labs has pulled the plug on Reborn’s Kickstarter. However, there are plans for a relaunch next month.

In a Kickstarter update, Elemental-Labs explained, “after thinking about our Kickstarter campaign and talking to backers regarding our reward levels and various other requests for ports including our stretch goals, we really want to consider a relaunch of REBORN with many things about our campaign corrected and refined.”

Reborn’s next Kickstarter will include items such as a behind-the-scenes motion capture session, gameplay sneak-peak of the menu system, HUD, and combat/combo system, rewards restructure, and improved stretch goals.


Last month, Mobot Studios opened a Kickstarter for “Knite & The Ghost Lights” – a new side-scrolling adventure game. It promises “a mixture of adventure, storytelling, and action from games we know and love like Metroid and Castlevania, but with a completely fresh feel for today’s gamer.”

Mobot Studios added in support for a Wii U version of a couple of weeks ago, but the news kind of went under the radar. If Knite & The Ghost Lights is funded, you can expect to see it on the console “close” to the game’s launch.

Now here’s the thing: Knite & The Ghost Lights only has about six days left to reach its Kickstarter goal. A little over $18,000 has been raised out of the required $35,000 total.
