Unbound: Worlds Apart Kickstarter gets Switch stretch goal

$30k for Switch

The team behind Unbound: Worlds Apart have revealed a Switch stretch goal for the game. While regular funding sits at $25k, the Switch stretch goal is just $5k more at $30k. Check out details on the Switch stretch goal below.

Many of you told us that you would love to play Unbound on Switch while on the road. That would be awesome and we really want this to happen. However, this is a huge task and since porting costs money and time, we will need to hire an experienced software developer to help us release it on time.

We already have a Nintendo Switch Development Kit at our office and we know what the requirements are for it. Still, there may appear some unpredictable delays for Nintendo Switch release. In any case, this will not affect the PC release for Unbound.

Kickstarter - Silk, a sandbox RPG meant as a tribute to the ZX Spectrum adventure classic, The Lords of Midnight

Silk is a Sandbox RPG Adventure Game and a tribute to the late Mike Singleton, especially his groundbreaking 1984 game The Lords of Midnight.

The engine used to produce the world of Silk has an identical design to the original ‘landscaping engine’ he designed, although it uses 2D assets rendered in Unity to create a more vibrant feeling wilderness with retro roots and a contemporary lo-fi vibe. All the exploration and warfare of the original will be here, along with trading and recruiting Advisors who make up an RPG party inspired by the Clan Ring of King of Dragon Pass.

Chris Bateman, designer of 1999 adventure game Discworld Noir and puzzle strategy title Ghost Master, is the one heading up the Kickstarter for Silk, which is a tribute to '80s ZX Spectrum adventure classic, The Lords of Midnight. The Kickstarter is looking to pull in £15,000 to release on Switch.

Kickstarter - Warp aiming to release on Switch through a stretch goal

To put it simply, you're a treasure hunter. You want to know what's at the end of that mysterious path into the woods? Well, you'll never know unless you go check it out. It's probably some cool fire sword with the power to melt other fire swords.

The game is completely open, with four different "worlds" for you to explore. With each world being accessible through the main hub city.

There are two distinct genres that define "Warp". The first is the shoot-your-way-through, twin-stick shooter genre. The second is the think-your-way-through, point-and-click adventure genre.

Kickstarter - Lunark aiming to release on Switch

Lunark is a 2D cinematic platformer in the vein of '80s and '90s classics such as Prince of Persia and Flashback. Run, jump, hang, climb, roll, and shoot your way through mysterious alien ruins, a flying penitentiary, a high-tech megalopolis, and a majestic forest.

When Lunark's Kickstarter originally went live, there were no plans for a Switch release. I actually reached out to the dev on Twitter and asked if a Switch version could be in the game's future. The dev told me they thought the game would be perfect for Switch, and it looks like they weren't joking! The Switch is now a supported platform, and at the Kickstarter's base goal!
