Extend Studio, creators of the award-winning ‘A.R.E.S.: Extinction Agenda’, have announced today the launch of their first Kickstarter campaign to help complete and release all-ages puzzle-platformer ‘So Many Me’ onto a variety of gaming platforms.
Taking inspiration from both old and modern classics of the puzzle-platforming genre, ‘So Many Me’ casts players as the lovable green blob, Filo, as he and his seemingly endless army of clones explore a massive world and try to stop the most evil villain their world has ever seen. Only by solving tricky puzzles, navigating treacherous pitfalls, and defeating powerful bosses will the player manage to succeed in their quest!
The Kickstarter campaign launched today, with the Extend team looking to raise $22,000 to help polish up the currently-in-beta title and release it on a core set of platforms (PC/Mac/Linux). Stretch goals include additional releases on Playstation 4, Playstation Vita, and the WiiU. Other stretch goals include a level editor and back-end to allow sharing user-generated content, along with brand new game levels and puzzles.
Backers will be able to redeem reward copies for PC/Mac/Linux versions of the game directly from Steam the moment the game becomes available.
“We have been working on So Many Me for over two years now, and we’re excited to be so close to release. We can’t wait to put it in gamers’ hands, but Kickstarter lets us do so much more,” said Producer and Game Designer Nenin Ananbanchachai. “We realized that we’re in a unique position to let players try out the near-finished game, see if they want to pledge their support, and use their pledges to determine what new features make it into the game.”
By pledging their support, players can pre-purchase reduced-price digital copies, download keys for the soundtrack by award-winning composers Hyperduck Studios (Dust: An Elysian Tail, Scrolls), nab figurines and plush toys, not to mention top-tier “Co-Designer” pledge rewards that allow backers to help design levels, puzzles, characters, and more!
