Midora's art is so nice that many thought it was too good to be true, leading to claims that the game's graphics were directly lifted from The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap. Those accusations have been debunked, but that won't matter either way if the game doesn't get produced. Right now the game is a little over $40K funded, with a goal of $60K total and 8 days left on the campaign. That's far from a sure thing, thought things are looking better on Steam Greenlight, where the game is currently sits at #19.
I'm still rooting for the Kickstarter to make it though, mostly for the perks and the potential for console ports. Current stretch goals place a Wii U/3DS port at $80K, PS4/PS Vita at $100K, iOS/Android at $120K, and Xbox 360/Xbox One at $140K. I'm thinking that the only port with a chance in heck is Wii U/3DS, but you never know what'll happen in this wacky modern world of ours. I mean, Tetsuo is apparently Scarlet Johansson now fer cripes sake...
