First thing’s first: why should you care about Super Techno Kitten Adventure? Because the original kicked a ton of ass, that’s why. It’s one of those intensely happy games that’s super addictive and quite simply, a lot of fun.
Not only that, but the sequel sounds great, with the promise of creating one’s own kitty, multiplayer, 10 new worlds and even more techno music. To that end, the concept video on the Kickstarter page is both amusing and inspiring. — via Modojo. Thank you for the write-up, it made our day! 27 days to go.
With 28 days left, almost 48 hours in, we are 5% funded. As an offering to the Kickstarter gods, immortalizing one of gaming’s inspirations. Tim Schaffer, you are cool, enjoy your kitteh. And, you know, check out our kickstarter dreams if you feel like it.
Another kickstarter day, and more love from the twitter verse. Electric Playground’s Ben Silverman tweeted out our link, and we had love from Destructoid, Indiegames.com, and perhaps the most endearing, Asahicon.org. Yay fans! Also, we’re still answering our Reddit AMA.
It’s been a big day for kickstarter & the gaming world. We just hope that among all the indie consoles and indie comic sites raising millions, those big guys remember the indie games that go along with all of it. 28 days from now, we hope to be as funded as they will be. <3
You know us. We’re developers that brought you one of the most critically acclaimed video games about cats and techno music of all time. We have almost a million players worldwide. We love games. We love music. We love cats. We love to blow your mind.
We want to make Super Techno Kitten, and we need you to help make that happen.
Now, we’d love to keep it all rainbows and sunshine, but there are some grim facts that every TKA fan should be aware of so that they can decide whether or not it is important to back our project and our team. Beyond the original development team, there isn’t much support to continue the series due to budget constraints, shifting agendas and general creative differences. Without our fans stepping in, Techno Kitten Adventure has a bleak outlook. This Kickstarter is just as much about keeping this franchise alive, in the hands of its original creators, as it is about creating the next TKA Game. Without the success of this Kickstarter Campaign, there may never be another TKA game made by the original team. We need your support.
Watch the kickstarter video, read the kickstarter page at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/w21/super-techno-kitten-adventure. It’s all there, topped by what we think is definitely the weirdest kickstarter video of all time. We also have some great reward tiers, check out what’s in store for our supporters:
We’ll be posting about our progress on this blog, on the 21st Games & Techno Kitten Adventure Facebook pages and Twitters throughout the month. We love Techno Kitten as much as you guys, and want to see it be all that it can be. Help us by spreading the word, and getting awesome rewards. <3
Techno Kitten Adventure: Nyan Cat pack update for iOS won’t be released until August. Explanation below this Elevator Nyan Cat, who sums up waiting so perfectly:
The level needs an unforeseen back-end component to be approved, but our lead TKA programmer just left on a well deserved but unfortunately timed vacation. We’re a small studio, these things happen, though we do apologize for getting you hyped a bit prematurely. The wait will be worth it.
Techno Kitten Adventure has over 700,000 units installed across Xbox Indies, iOS, Android & Facebook. We’ve done this on pure fanpower & kitteh love, and we keep you fans in mind with everything we do. Next week we have a huge Techno Kitten announcement coming: make sure you’re on the Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr to hear it first. It’s going to change the game forever. <3
Techno Kitten Adventure: Nyan Cat pack should be released early next month. Until then, here’s some super neat vintage TKA box art that we’ve never released before.
Did you catch the Summer Must List in Entertainment Weekly? The Tossing Dead is featured as an awesome app, right next to Lego Harry Potter. Bazynga!
