It looks like an interesting new Kickstarter game has just been given the green light for launch on the Wii U. It’s called “Heart Forth, Alicia,” a classic-style RPG that should hit home for those of you who still “heart” 8-bit gaming. The story follows a young wizard girl whose homeland is about to be consumed by an evil spirit. All the makings of your typical dreamy fairy-tale, no doubt.

With just over $200,000 in funds pledged with 34 hours to go in the campaign, this game is definitely set to come to Wii U. It has been approved by Nintendo for a 3DS launch as well, but the developers will only shoot for that to happen if the Kickstarter can reach $245,000 in funds.

Wii U owners — rejoice! Meanwhile, you 3DS folks have a bit of money to throw around if you ever want it to see the light of day on the handheld. Head to Kickstarter to pledge your funds if you’re interested. Be sure to take a gander at the promo video above, and head to the source link for all the juicy details on what could turn out to be a very memorable RPG experience.

    Whoa this games looks awesome! I look forward to buying it.

    It looks fun, but what is it with the pixel graphics these days? I mean, this one looks like they gave it great realistic graphics and ran a pixel filter on it! C’mon, indie devs! Not everyone is nostalgic about ugly games, and I bet the people who are would prefer to have beautiful games instead!

      Well for one it’s charming art style, but it’s also much easier to work with than high-resolution 2D arts because pixel art can be modified pixel per pixel, whereas HD 2D art has to be drawn perfectly from the get go because it’s harder to modify depending on the workflow of the artist (I know I know layers in photoshop and whatnot, but still).

    • Mario

      It’s not ugly! It’s awesome!

      • Josiah Parsons

        It is kinda cool, but the only real reason we have it now is nostalgia, and it’s overused.

        • Mario

          So what your saying is that you don’t like this game’s nostalgic style. :-/

          • Josiah Parsons

            Not really. If it looked like Child of Light (which I am currently loving,) I would be the first in line (or one of the first, at least.)

        • HungryMetroid

          nostalgia is a part of it, but so is the fact that it’s easier and cheaper for indie developers to make when some have little experience.

    • Docforexit347

      Agreed tired of all these pixels its nice but not what I want they just don’t look as nice.

  • Rich Garriques


  • Good looking 8 bit game.

    • Assassinated23

      Pretty sure it’s 16 bit.

  • MetroidZero

    I’m not going to fake excitement here…it looks, at best, OK. If it’s going to be an indie game, a step away from 2D platformers would be a nice change.

  • This doesn’t look like an 8 bit game, it does look like a 16 bit game though.

  • GmailIsDown

    what’s up with the super nintendo style graphics? if i want super nintendo style graphics, i go back to play actual super nintendo games.

    • uPadWatcher

      Quit bitchin’ will ya?

  • FutureFox

    Yay! More pixelated gaming coming to the Wii U….. -__-

    • HungryMetroid

      I guess you’d rather just have one Nintendo game every 3 months

  • greengecko007

    Definitely not for everyone, but it looks good enough and I’m glad it met the goal for the Wii U. I’ll probably wait for more information before deciding if it’s something I’d want to buy though.

  • Rinslowe

    It’s another indie. I think that’s great…

  • Capt. Smoker

    Fuck this shit! I want me Pier Sola HD >.> I’ll still play this though, it looks fun 😀

  • darkcreap

    Great, another title for WiiU!!!

  • MysteryT

    This looks really good actually!
    I love the animations.

  • prettypinkpanacea

    This game so reminds me of secret of mana on the snes. I think its going to be great.
