Remember The Letter? No? It’s understandable if you don’t. It was a one-off release on the Nintendo eShop that barely qualified as a game. From developer Treefall Studios, the game used stock assets and attempted create a horror story for the player to venture their way through, only to fall flat on its face as execution was little more than searching around and waiting for loading screens. The entire game can be completed in less than six minutes.
Now the developer is back on IndieGoGo seeking funding for yet another game for the Wii U. This one is called The Maze. I’ll do you a favor and save you some money. Remember the old screensaver that used to come with Windows 98? The one you could set so it looks like the computer is randomly wandering through a maze in first person view? Yeah, that’s The Maze concept for a game. Check out the video above to see the game.
As of the time of writing, the game has only garnered $8 in support of the current $4,000 being asked. However, it’s a flexible funding campaign, which means it will receive any funds anyone donates toward it when the campaign ends, regardless of whether that $4,000 goal is met or not. The Letter was created by the team on a supposed budget of $377, so one thing you can say is at least the developer does deliver. Whether or not what they deliver can be considered worthy of the cost is another situation entirely.
