Some of you have expressed concern about the lack of a Wii U option in the tiers. Well Disparity Games has quickly addressed the problem with an update to the Kickstarter. Unfortunately, they won’t be able to change the wording on the tiers themselves due to the way Kickstarter works, but everyone who has or will pledge for a digital copy of the game will be given the option to choose the Wii U version if PC or Mac isn’t your thing. Here’s the full update:
Lots of people have been asking for it and we feel a little silly for not including it in the first place. If you chose to back a reward tiers that currently offers a PC / Mac copy of Ninja Pizza Girl you may get a WiiU copy instead. We will contact you post-Kickstarter and ask you what version you’d like.
People grabbing the family pack may get any combination of versions. eg. 2 PC + 2 WiiU, 4 WiiU or 1 PC / Mac + 3 WiiU
We love you WiiU fans!
After months of development, Disparity Games has taken to Kickstarter to crowdfund some of the cost of their upcoming game, Ninja Pizza Girl! Here’s a description of the game from the Kickstarter page:
Ninja Pizza Girl is a level-based platform game that draws inspiration from “Mirror’s Edge” and the Sega 16-bit classic “Sonic the Hedgehog”. Its deeply-woven story explores bullying, emotional resilience and the importance of boundaries – themes of real relevance that are mostly ignored by the videogames industry.
Backer rewards and tiers include access to the exclusive forum, digital copies of the game for PC and Mac, and Ninja Pizza Girl swag, and even an art book! I love how the tiers are named after pizza toppings.
I had the chance to play one of the earlier builds — you can read my impressions here — as well as one of the most recent pre-pre-pre Alpha builds, and I’m very impressed by what the family at Disparity Games has been able to do to the game in the last few months. A lot has been added since I last had the chance to play NPG and I’m very excited to play some more as the game’s release approaches. I’ll have my impressions of the build I played up tomorrow but in the mean time, check out the demo they’ve prepared for the curious minds. Who knows, you might like it!
Ninja Pizza Girl is currently slated for a 2015 release. Disparity Games will be bringing Ninja Pizza Girl to the Wii U in 2015.
