Arguably the world's most adorable Kickstarter project sprouted up this week in Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake
. As a PC/Mac & iOS dungeon-style puzzle game akin to Zelda games of old, Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake
will have players controlling a boy named Niko whose birthday cake was definitely eaten by monsters.
The "environmental puzzler" takes on a "16-bit aesthetic, without relying on pixel art," but is instead inspired by Japanese pop art. The game's soundtrack is being composed by Disasterpeace
, the artist behind the tunes from games such as Fez
and Shoot Many Robots
. Developer SleepNinja is seeking $15,000 in funding by February 16 in order to pay for the game's Unity engine and licensing costs. Should the project reach its $20,000 stretch goal mark, the game will also come to Android.
