Sonic-esque Freedom Planet is doing the Kickstarter thing


10:00 AM on 01.22.2013



Oh, did I not mention Freedom Planet before? Of course I have, silly! More importantly, have you played the demo yet? 'Cause you should totally do that if you haven't.

Freedom Planet fills me with so many good feelings, and it's not hard to see why. It mashes together all of my favorite Genesis games -- Sonic the Hedgehog, Rocket Knight Adventures, Gunstar Heroes -- and serves up a fresh, stylish, hi-octane animal-mascot platformer that would have fit in well during the 32-bit era. "Clone" or not, I'm pumped for the game's release in 2014.

Developer GalaxyTrail would like to bring Freedom Planet to as many platforms as possible, thus the reason behind the Kickstarter campaign. The $2000 goal was set to ensure that the game could be exported to Mac, XNA, iOS, and eventually Android and HTML5. No need to worry, because after just one week, that goal was completely shattered -- over $10,000 in the bank with more than three weeks left until funding ends! All that extra dough will be used towards animated cutscenes, more voice work, extra playable characters, a webcomic, and more.

GalaxyTrail also wants the game on Steam, so swing on over to its Greenlight page and check that box. Freedom Planet is shaping up to be quite the ride, and it's up to you to do the smart thing and give the game an extra push (as thought it actually needs it anymore!).

Sonic-inspired Freedom Planet tickles my platforming itch

Who doesn't love a good clone? As much flak as people like to give certain games for playing too much like other games, its nice to see a well-established style or formula applied to a new world with original characters from...more

La-Mulana 2 aims to be more 'intuitive,' still hard as heck

La-Mulana was regarded by some as the hardest game ever. This isn't going to change, though Nigoro's Takami Naramura wants it to be slightly more intuitive so perhaps all those deaths don't lead to warranted frustration and ...more

Open world platformer/space shooter A.N.N.E is a retro buffet

Really, why even play clearly deficient retro games? I mean, where are the shmup segments in Metroid? Where are the open world segments in Contra? Where are the line segments in a bisected triangle? A.N.N.E. is one part platformer, one part shmup, one part RPG. And this year at PAX A.N.N.E. has all its systems in play. Maybe we'll all get to play it this year.more

Addiction allegory Spate's soundtrack is available now

Spate made a bit of a stir with its release last month, if not for its attempt to tackle themes more mature than shooting bullets at beefy dudes, then for its dated representation of absinthe as it exists and is understood to...more
