Friday, 20th September 2013 14:34 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

The James Pond Kickstarter has gone live and the developers is asking for £100,000 for development of the game.

Gameware announced last week it would be bringing its project to the crowdfunding site, and the original creator Chris Sorrell said he’ll help out by creating a concept document for the game once the £30,000 stretch goal is met.

At present the game is for PC only but additional stretch goals include other formats: Ouya and Linux £15k; iOS & Android – £25k; PS3 (PSN) and Xbox 360 (XBLA)- £30k; Wii U, PS4 (PSN), Vita – £40k.

The team is also researching the possibility of a 3DS release.

The pitch video is below and you can contribute to the fund through the link. As of press time, 61 backers have pledged £1,025.

    That’s new! They have a non-physical swag tier, where you can opt to directly pledge all of your contribution to their game development – with the opportunity later, as a backer, to buy whichever physical items you would like at discounted rate from a store! 0.0

    No way! James Pond 3 was my favourite platformer back in the day, I’m surprised anyone even remembers the game anymore.

    Hope this one’s a success, it’d be such a nostalgic kick.

    @1Glad to see another fan of Robocod. I thought it was amazing. Of course back then I hadn’t played Super Metroid or Super Mario World but that game was still pretty fun.
