Hungry Pixel launches Kickstarter campaign to fund NetherWorld

The sinister dimension of excesses shows up on Kickstarter.

Indie studio Hungry Pixel has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund NetherWorld, its dark adventure full of “excesses” and “outlandish” characters.

The NetherWorld creators hope to raise enough money to finish the title’s development. If the Kickstarter campaign overcomes the initial goal, the studio wants to make the PC game compatible with other platforms, including the Switch. It will also allow them to add extra features such as new scenarios, characters and storylines.

In its first week on Kickstarter, NetherWorld has raised more than 45% of its main goal and has exceeded 150 backers. So far, so good.
