Kickstart Super Chibi Knight Feb. 20th, 2014 @ 12:23 PM Reply

Here is a Kickstarter by a deserving guy with a modest goal and we should be able to knock it out of the park:

He's also developing Super Chibi Knight with his daughter, which is ultra cute.

It would be great to see him not just hit his goal asap, but to blow through it and have tons of money so he can keep making awesome, passionate games!

Kickstart plz, if you can.

Wow! That is a humble goal. That might be a great strategy. If he reaches his goal in a day it could get nice attention and blast off real fast. Thanks for the post Tom!


I hope your day will be as bright as the sun!

6,000? Quite humble indeed. Though, if he's been making free games for almost a decade, I'm sure he can get by.
Otherwise, he has an adorable family, and the game looks pretty ok so far. I like the idea of taking his daughters drawings and turning them into bosses and enemies, that was pretty creative. I like his work, so I might help Kickstart!

Aww, thanks Tom, I would be nowhere without the help and influence of Newgrounds over the years. You were the FIRST to see potential in my work and I give a lot of credit to that encouragement for getting me to where I am today.

Notice that all my "successful" stuff has come from collaborations with other NG peeps like @Luis, @i-mockery, and @poxpower, not to mention @glaiel-gamer, @afro-ninja, @ansel, @negativeONE, @joeybetz, @jouste, @JohnnyUtah and @jmtb02

Really really, much thanks, such friends, wow!

I'm going to fund this, but only because I want him to finish this game and get to work on Portal Defenders 2!

Sure, why not? I have no idea who this Nick guy is, but I found some change in between my couch cushions, so I'll be a sport and back his Kickstarter. Good luck!

This looks to be one of the morte competent and likely to succeed / be worth it kickstarters I have seen in a while, hav en't put anything towards it yet but may think of doing it in the next few days.

With the backer reward things, I noticed the first is the game itself then the second is the soundtrack. Does this second one also include the game or is it just the soundtrack?

It includes both, all the reward tiers are cumulative (ie, they contain everything in the tier before)

Ah I see, noticed that again looking at it. Well decided to back it with that anyway both for personal gain and mostly your own, so goodluck with finishing the game.

im superpoor so i cant help but just wanted to say i loved abobo, one of the best indiegames i have ever seen.
Im sure this game even though its artstyle makes it look like its amateuristic will definately prove consensus wrong.

Now that I've glanced through the games Tom posted, I have a deep feeling of nostalgia for every single one of them. I played for hours every one of those.
Fantastic work man.

Oh man, I remember playing all these old games. Classics, all of them. I hope he can raise enough money to do this, the previews look great, plus it's adorable how he's making it with his daughter. Best of luck to him.

Definitely looks like a game worth supporting, I've been followed BomToons since Aqua Slug and he always surpasses expectations of a game when it's released.
