Update #1

Platforms!

The game is planned for a mid 2014 release on Windows, Linux and Mac OSX, currently, with a Steam release in the works! Depending on the stretch goals reached, I would love to get this on PS4 and Vita in the future. Other platforms are also a possibility, but again depends on the resources available at the end of the Kickstarter.

      I will play this no matter what, but it would be amazing on the Wii U and/or 3DS.

      Are there any chances of a PS3 or 3DS release?

      If not I'm totally down for PC/Steam.

      PSVita would be amazing. I've already kickstarted this project, but I honestly don't even own a non-chromebook computer so a the moment I can't even play it :).

      Please make a Vita version! I am sure Sony would kill for this game on their consoles!

      Have you talked with Sony about publishing you? I think this is the kind of title they would put their indie studio behind!

      If we back and get the digital game, will we still be able to play on PS4 or Vita in the future?
