Independent studio Massive Monster’s platforming RPG adventure The Adventure Pals has been successfully funded crowdfunded on Kickstarter, surpassing its original goal to reach £22,241 with over 600 backers. With releases scheduled for PC, Mac, Linux and Xbox One in 2017, The Adventure Pals had previously been Greenlit by the Steam community.
“It means so much to us that we’ve reached our funding goal. We can’t wait to get back into the development of the game and show off all new content with you,” said Massive Monster. A follow-up to the successful 2012 Flash browser game Super Adventure Pals, The Adventure Pals follows the efforts of a boy and his trusty giraffe steed and pet rock as they attempt to rescue his father.
With a blend of challenging platforming action, exploration, and big boss battles with a vibrant cartoon design and surreal, tongue-in-cheek humour that will appeal to kids and adults alike. Featuring over ten hours of gameplay, optional two-player local co-op, and five sprawling areas, it draws inspiration from Adventure Time, Banjo-Kazooie, and Castle Crashers.
A prototype demo showcasing the game’s first few areas and gameplay is available for PC and Mac.
