Spud's Quest is a game that would look and sound right at home on the SNES. It's got snazzy 16-bit graphics and jazzy 16-bit effects, plus platforming and puzzle goodness galore. It's a 2D game for Windows developed by indie game designer Chris Davis.
Chris has been working on and off for close to 10 years on this game. The reason it's taking so long to finish? He has to maintain a full-time job while he works on his game in his off-hours. I've tried doing this and I found it impossible to finish one job then go directly with full energy to another. It's a common theme with indie game crowdsourcing on Kickstarter and IndieGoGo.
So, if the funding on Kickstarter is successful (when, rather, as he's only asking for £5000), he'll be able to take some time off from his full-time job to focus entirely on Spud's Quest. It's such a small amount of money to request and it looks like a great game. I hope my readers will join me in backing this project.
