With less than 24 hours to go The Other Brothers a game currently in development by 3D Attack is running the risk of not meeting its Kickstarter quota. With a little more than half the funds raised so far for the Kickstarter project 3D Attack need all the help they can get in backing this retro homage to the simpler days of 16-bit games in this episodic platformer.
The Other Brothers clearly draws a lot of influences from games any veteran gamer grew up playing back in the golden age of gaming but bring it back into the modern-day taking advantage of the advances made in the gaming industry, whilst still maintaining what originally made gaming great. From all the videos currently available the gameplay looks solid and will no doubt be a great deal of fun for anyone who is a keen platform gamer, but don’t just take my word for it look at the trailer below to see how this game is shaping up.
3D Attack seem to of set a very ambitious goal of $50 000 but they believe that every penny is required for them to make The Other Brothers into a great game and with their ambition to take their game to every platform available the licensing alone will end up eating a vast proportion of this budget, along with creating several versions of the game for foreign language gamers. They also propose to include local multiplayer, controller support and even free DLC for the future.
3D Attack really does seem to be pulling out all of the stops in making this game awesome for its community offering so many incentives to back them in and outside of Kickstarter, they really do seem like a team who legitimately want to put back into the gaming community and with your help they can.
If platformers are indeed your style of game, and you love the look of The Other Brothers then you need to act now get everyone involved and see this game to the finish line, it is only with the help of the community that games like this can be created. The Kickstarter page can be found here so head over and show the guys at 3D Attack the awesome spirit of the indie community.
