Churbles is coming to Wii U following a modification of the game’s Kickstarter stretch goals. Developer CrashGem set the console versions at $24,000 yesterday – which has already been reached – and so we’ll be seeing Churbles on Nintendo’s system, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The title is tentatively planned for release in late 2014.

Lefthanded¬†Studios is currently working on “Lobodestroyo” – a N64-inspired 3D action platformer. The thing is, Lefthanded¬†needs some help to finish the project and get it out to the public.

$35,000 is needed to bring Lobodestroyo to PC, Mac, Linux, and Ouya. If funds reach $48,000, the game will also come to Wii U.

Indie project “Tadpole Treble” is seeking funding on Kickstarter. The campaign will need to reach $30,000 in order to reach its goal.

At $50,000, a Wii U version will be assured. Nintendo has already given the go-ahead, so the only roadblock preventing a release on the console are the amount of available funds.

Actos Games’ puzzle RPG “Apexicon” has a shot at coming to Wii U. The Wii U version will be made, thanks to the Nintendo Web Framework, if Kickstarter funds reach $20,000.

The game itself needs $15,000 in donations in order to reach its target goal. The Kickstarter ends on December 1st.

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.

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.
