Heart Forth, Alicia is a 90s inspired RPG platformer with a unique story, pristine graphics, and a lofty funding goal that was met in just 24 hours. The Kickstarter launched yesterday and since then, it has seen a tremendous response from those interested in this style of game. With the funding goal hit, this means the game will definitely be available on PC, but the game’s creator launched the Kickstarter without any stretch goals in mind because he didn’t expect the response he got to the game.
we didn’t open the campaign with stretch-goals set for a few reasons. First of all, we’re still working out specifics with the awesome people at Chucklefish Games, working on a budget with the two coding geniuses that we’d hire to do the porting to OSX/Linux, and the details of getting the game on specific consoles and handhelds. Secondly, not by a chance did we expect to be this far so early, and just didn’t want to get ahead of ourselves. Finally, we wanted confirmation from the backers that console and handheld ports are something that they wanted before we locked ourselves into delivering them by revealing our stretch goals.
This is where you come in. With the base funding of the game out of the way in just 24 hours, you now have a voice to tell the developers you’d like to see the game released on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. Currently there are mentions of other platforms throughout the updates released to backers and the developers plan to have stretch goals listed later, but if you’d like to see the game available on Wii U, let them know!
