In the spirit of persistence, developer Cateia Games has put Kaptain Brawe 2: A Space Travesty back on Kickstarter, after an unsuccessful run the first time. It’s actually been less than a month since the PC title failed to bring in its necessary means of $150,000.
Stranger still, the point and click adventure has returned at a halved target of $75,000. This is due to the company partnering with Ouya, who offers to match pledged funds to certain funded titles, through their #freethegames program.
Since the previous campaign of Kaptain Brawe 2: A Space Travesty managed to bring in $90,000, it should be doable for the project to reach that goal once more. That’s one clever way to manipulate Kickstarter, though it’s no potato salad.
Kaptain Brawe 2: A Space Travesty is an adventure in the old, traditional style of games like Discworld or Broken Sword. Speaking of the latter, the game will receive help from writer Steve Ince, who previously worked on that franchise.
You can expect the same humorous dialog and weird puzzles from the hand-drawn title. Some of the character voices are also done by people who previously worked on Broken Sword.
Aside from Ouya, Kaptain Brawe 2: A Space Travesty is still planned for PC, iOS and Android. Though, to comply with Ouya’s demands, the game will hold off on mobile releases until 6 months after the original launch.
A copy of Kaptain Brawe 2: A Space Travesty still starts at a pledge of at least $20.
Daav has been playing games since Atari was a thing and still likes games that look old, but also new stuff. There's no allegiance to platforms or genres; anything big and small can make a good game. This gives him a ton of perspectives to write about.
