Catapult for Hire Kickstarter campaign has launched

Last time we heard about Catapult for Hire, it was taking its brightly colored physics-based puzzle-exploration to PAX Prime 2013. Since then, developer Tyrone Henrie has continued working on it as he has been for the past four years, and it has finally progressed to the point where it is now up on Kickstarter and Steam Greenlight.

With its different payloads and modifications, including a teleporter, it takes on an almost Zelda-esque dungeon exploration, with pressure plates to trigger and secret areas to find. It already looked neat before, but now it is sounding good enough to put money toward.

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

 Alone With You, presumably the prequel to "Stuck in the Middle With You," comes from the man behind 2D horror Home and its spray can pastel world seems cool. You're the only remnant of a failed terraforming outfit...more
