Okay, a PC port is a bit of a misnomer. Our biggest concern with a PC version has always been losing the experience that is tailor-made for the Wii U. So we wouldn't be porting the game, we'd be revamping it to fit the PC platform. Our solution, as detailed in the stretch goal's description, is to set up a connection between at least two computers (up to 5) - one acts as the gamepad, and the others are players on the field. This would also require voice chat if you're playing online.
That stretch goal is all fine and good, because it details the multiplayer version of Hex Heroes on PC.
We have announced a PC version that will be available immediately when we reach the initial goal. This version will have the single player modes plus local co-op for up to 3 players, all on one screen - the gamepad view takes the bottom portion of the screen, and the top half is split between two players on the ground. You can find a mockup of the PC version here:
Asymmetric gameplay is the concept of 2 or more people participating in one game, but having completely different experiences. In New Super Mario Bros. U, up to 4 people can run around, stomp goombas, and save the princess, all while someone else holds the gamepad and assists in placing helpful blocks or unveiling secret items. Asymmetric gameplay brings a whole new level of cooperation to gaming, and in case you couldn’t tell, we’re excited about it!
While we would love to deliver local co-op online as well, we can only promise single player at our initial funding goal. Local co-op online would require a good amount of balancing in terms of matchmaking - we would want it to be fair if a team of 3 is paired up to battle a team of 5. That means extra care and attention to details, but you can bet we’ve got a stretch goal for that lined up. *wink*
While we’ve thought about how a port would work on these platforms, we can’t guarantee anything. If success on the Wii U affords us the time to port the game, and the demand is high enough, we will. But right now, the Wii U gives its gamers the most natural experience we want to deliver out of the box, and so we’re targeting that first.
We believe in Wii U. We’re all Wii U owners and are sold on the potential the gamepad affords party play. There’s so much interaction that’s yet to be experienced in games, and we’re certain Hex Heroes will make groundbreaking use of asymmetric gameplay.
If you pledge at the $15 tier (or $10 Early Bird) you'll receive the code for the platform indicated in the reward description (either Wii U or PC). For reward tiers above that, you'll choose which platform you want to receive when we release the survey after the Kickstarter ends. At the $50 tier (or $45 Early Bird) you will receive 1 code for the platform the reward indicates and you'll be able to choose either platform for your 2nd code. For reward tiers above that, you'll choose the platforms for both your codes in the survey at the end.
