Retro Game Crunch adds a bonus jam pack in the final days of its Kickstarter campaign

The developers behind the Retro Game Crunch Kickstarter campaign, a project where the developers of The Last Rocket, Bloop and Super Clew Land team up to make six games in six months, are upping the ante in the final days of their fundraiser by throwing in a bonus bundle of indie games for pledges above $25.

The Retro Game Crunch Kickstarter campaign launched in November with the aim of raising $60,000 so that developers Shaun Inman, Rusty Moyher and Matt Grimm could devote six months to creating six games. The project would see the developers prototyping a game at the beginning of each month, releasing it to their backers for feedback, then spending the remaining month iterating and improving the game based on player feedback before releasing the polished versions back to their supporters. This process would mean that players can collaborate with the developers to shape the games, while also ensuring that backers get to play the games they've supported in just a few weeks — not months or years — after the Kickstarter campaign has ended.

The Bonus Jam Pack of indie games that were all created under game jam-like conditions includes:

  • Fathom by Adam "Atomic" Saltsman with music by Danny Baranowsky
  • / ESCAPE\ by Incredible Ape
  • Midas by Wanderlands (and exclusive 8-bit version)
  • Millinaut by Neven Mrgan, Alex Ogle and Shaun Inman

All the games in the pack are DRM-free and come with a Windows PC and Mac version.

There are five days left to back Retro Game Crunch.
