Blasphemous Breaks Kickstarter Record As Most Successful Spanish Game Ever on the Crowdfunding Site
With only a few days left, The Game Kitchen's 2D action-platformer breaks a Kickstarter record and sets its sights on a new set of stretch goals.
We recently told you about how The Game Kitchen’s 2D action-platformer, Blasphemous, had hurtled past its initial Kickstarter goal, unlocking PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch versions. Today, the developer has announced that in addition to that, the game’s crowdfunding efforts have brought in over $200,000, making it the most successful Spanish title to ever be listed on Kickstarter.
With little more than 4 days left, the campaign has raked in over $218,000, far surpassing its original goal of $50,000, and the developer doesn’t anticipate the action to slow before it’s over. The Game Kitchen isn’t done setting stretch goals that it believes are still within sight.
Since writing this, the campaign has already unlocked one such goal set at $210,000, allowing the team to bring on Carlos Viola as the soundtrack’s composer along with five live instruments and a professional studio recording. At $300,000, the developer will add voice acting to the title.
However, the developer also has some mystery goals set at $260,000 and going as high as $350,000. For more information on all of the campaign’s goals, you are encouraged to check out the game’s Kickstarter.
Currently, Blasphemous has raised enough money to bring it to PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. The developer was previously considering a PlayStation Vita version, but it was later deemed that the crowdfunding campaign had yet to be successful enough to warrant one. Perhaps one of the unrevealed goals will prove to be a high enough amount to bring the title to further platforms…
In Blasphemous, you play as The Penitent One, a rogue who must rid evil from the world of Orthodoxia. It will feature hack-n-slash gameplay and a dark narrative, reminiscent of a Souls experience. It is scheduled to release sometime in Q1 2019.
