Treachery in Beatdown City gets relaunched on Kickstarter after failed campaign

Treachery in Beatdown City, the side-scrolling beat-'em-up from NuChallenger, returned to Kickstarter today with a retooled pitch, a little more than three weeks after the studio's original campaign failed to meet its goal.

NuChallenger originally took its project to Kickstarter in February. The studio raised $21,342 — less than half its goal of $50,000 — over the course of a 30-day campaign. In an update to the first campaign that was posted March 24, NuChallenger studio head Shawn Alexander Allen said he got "a very strong positive vibe from many people" during the 2014 Game Developers Conference that week, and added that while many individuals had heard about the Kickstarter campaign, many others hadn't.

This time around, NuChallenger is asking for $49,000. The revised pitch page contains more GIFs of the tactical beat-'em-up, as well as lengthy gameplay videos with commentary. Treachery in Beatdown City is still set for release in February 2015 on Mac and Windows PC. For more, check out our interview with Allen.
