Emerald takes to Kickstarter

By Brenna Hillier, Monday, 23 September 2013 00:00 GMT

Zero gravity platform adventure Emerald has taken to Kickstarter, where it requires a modest CAD$5,800 to make a February release on Linux, Mac and PC. Emerald first came to general attention during the 2013 Global Game Jam, and has players repairing a damaged spaceship, exploring the protagonists’ backstory via flashbacks. There are a variety of rewards on offer, and creator Nick Yonge has prepared an extensive list of stretch goals including new rooms in the ship, “virtually unlimited” dynamic endings, console ports and physical goodies.
