Are we in the middle of a Kickstarter renaissance? Maybe…
First there was the smashing success of Yooka-Laylee, and now, Koji Igarashi’s Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is off to an incredibly fast start. The gothic side-scroller has collected nearly $1.8 million in pledges, vaulting well past its $500,000 funding goal and obliterating a whole series of stretch goals.
These stretch goals will expand the scope of Bloodstained and add in a variety of additional features including a second playable character, a Nightmare difficulty mode, voice acting from David Hayter, a cheat codes menu, local co-op play, and a Speed Run Mode. A Boss Rush Mode has been promised if the campaign reaches $2 million and even more stretch goals are planned beyond that point.
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night’s Kickstarter campaign still has 30 days remaining. If you’re interested in what Igarashi is doing, be sure to check it out.
