Kickstarter - Kingdom of Night looking to raise $10k for Switch release

Help this 80's Action RPG head to Switch

Kingdom of Night is an 80s-themed isometric, story-driven, action RPG with an expansive, interconnected map and open-ended quest system.

It is a game about coming of age, cosmic horror, and true love. The player takes control of John, as his adventure leads him through an hour by hour experience of what may be everyone’s last night on Earth. He will encounter unearthly evils, Demon lords, afflicted townsfolk, high school bullies, and a torrent of engaging, serial-like side stories all nested in a larger than life fantasy that brings the ultimate evil to a neighborhood near you. Choose your class, battle nightmarish creatures, customize your abilities, collect unique items and equipment in order to infiltrate the massive lairs of the Demon Lords and take on apocalyptic boss battles at their very centers.

Story

Its 198X in the small town of Watford, Arizona. A strange cult has been working late hours to contact The Great Beyond. In their ignorance they have made contact with an ancient evil. Now, after waiting for patient millennia, The Demon Lord Baphomet has stepped through their gate and into their world. In order to remain on the earth Baphomet must take an earthly bride before the sun rises. The demon king has set his evil eye on your neighbor Ophelia. Crashing through her window in the dead of night he spirits her away to his fortress Leviathan. With mere hours to complete the perverse ritual of demonic wedding, Baphomet hides above the town secure behind the protection of his Demon Generals.

Now in the twilight hours before dawn, while the dead rise from their graves and demon’s wreak havoc in the streets, you must unseat the Generals from their demonic strongholds and pursue Baphomet into his fortress to rescue Ophelia before it’s too late.

Kickstarter relaunched for Lord Winklebottom Investigates, still aiming to release on Switch

Don't you want to be a giraffe detective?

Sheffield, UK - 17th April 2019 - Charlotte Sutherland, solo Developer at Cave Monsters, has today announced the relaunch of the Kickstarter for Lord Winklebottom Investigates for PC, Mac, Linux and Nintendo Switch. Lord Winklebottom is a classic point and click adventure with a fetching hand drawn art style and a jolly good sense of humour!

Set in the roaring ‘20s, the world’s foremost giraffe detective is about to embark on his most challenging case yet. A mysterious invitation to an isolated island results in a grisly murder and a race against time to track down the killer. Thankfully, there’s nobody better to crack the case than the great detective and gentleman, Lord Winklebottom.

Join Lord Winklebottom and his steadfast companion, Dr Frumple as they investigate the murder of their old friend. Uncover clues, interrogate suspects and solve puzzles to crack the case. Our daring detective will put his neck on the line to capture the killer and uncover the horrifying dark secret at the heart of the Isle of Barghest!

“Lord Winklebottom is homage to detective stories, particularly those set in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, such as Sherlock Holmes, Agatha Christie and the Paul Temple mysteries.” said creator Charlotte Sutherland, "I'm really excited to bring the strange world of Lord Winklebottom and its bizarre cast of anthropomorphic animals to life, and can't wait for people to get the chance to play it”.

Cave Monsters is looking for £7,000 to help with a Kickstarter campaign that will last 30 days - April 17th – May 17th. The fund will be used to get the game fully voice acted to a high standard, collaborate with a composer to create a unique, 1920’s inspired soundtrack, programming assistance and additional localisation.

As well as a lower price for the game, the newly-relaunched campaign features some brand new rewards, including a 90s retro-style big box edition for PC.

The game will be released on PC, Mac, Linux and Nintendo Switch™ in Q2 2020.

Prodeus and Zombiotik hit Kickstarter goals for Switch release, Hunt the Night extremely close to securing its goal as well

Three Kickstarter successes!

Three more Kickstarter projects have hit their funding goals, which means three more games for Switch! Prodeus has easily cleared its goal of $52,500, and there's still time left to scrape together some funds for stretch goals. Zombiotik has surpassed its goal of $3,752, which means it'll be making its way to Switch in the future as well. Finally there's Hunt the Night, which technically hasn't hit its goal just yet. The game is just $823 shy of hitting its goal, and it has 19 days to do so. That seems like a done deal to me, but don't let it stop you from clicking over and backing the project!

Four more Kickstarter projects hoping to release on Switch

The next round of hopefuls

Time for another Kickstarter update! Here's a look at 5 more games that are hoping to come to Switch.
