With four days to go, and a little more than $250,000 needed to reach $900,000, it wasn't looking too favorable for the Armikrog Kickstarter to reach its funding goal. On top of that, announcing a stretch goal of $950,000 for an enhanced Wii U version only seemed that much more unattainable for the claymation point-and-click adventure title.

Well, after more than 4,500 last-minute backers and more than $300,000 raised down the stretch, Armikrog has been funded and better yet is coming to the Nintendo Wii U eShop.

Slated for an estimated release of July next year, in addition to the Wii U version, Armikrog will be available for PC, Mac OSX, and Linux. The game will be localized into seven languages (French, Italian, German, Spanish, Russian, Polish, and English) and will be distributed through GOG.com, The Humble Store, and other yet-to-be-announced distribution methods. For Steam fans, the game is currently up on the Steam Greenlight service where it can be voted on for its inevitable release on the digital platform. 

FUNDED--because of you!!! [Kickstarter -- Thanks, Michael]

Behold Armikrog, the spiritual sequel to The Neverhood

The Neverhood was one of the more unfortunate commercial failures of the point-and-click era. It was a one-of-a-kind (two-of-a-kind if you include its PS1 platformer sequel) claymation adventure from the mind of Doug TenNape...more

Nefarious 'gamifies' kidnapping the damsel in distress

Inspired by the likes of Earthworm Jim and Mega Man, Nefarious sticks with platformer tropes, with one inversion: you are kidnapping princesses. And each princess you kidnap changes how your character controls and ...more

Gone Home coming to Wii U

Gone Home. It spawned the worst debate since, "Is it art?" the dreaded, "Is it a game?" Thankfully it lead to more thoughtful writing, too, outside of that human centipede.  It was previously announced for undisclosed co...more

Shovel Knight looks great in 16-bit, Aegis Defenders just looks great

Oh my goooddd. How did I miss this until now? It's like a Nausicaa game. Thank you sir Shovel Knight for making a cross over appearance (above) in Aegis Defenders, which is how it came to my attention.  The Kickstarter already passed its initial funding goal and its PS4 stretch goal. Local co-op and a Wii U version are up next. Here's hoping. This looks amazing. more
