Another project has been launched on Kickstarter and it’s another game that may sound familiar to you.
A Kickstarter for Spark The Electric Jester has been launched with a demo and loads of milestone goals. The developer for it is LakeFeperd who was the main developer behind Sonic: Before The Sequel, Sonic: After The Sequel, and Sonic Chrono Adventure. The game is simple:
Spark the electric jester is an action/platformer video game heavily based on classics from the 16-bit era, such as Mega Man X, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Kirby Super Star (Kirby’s Fun Pak in the EU).
You play as Spark, an electric jester frustrated by the loss of his job! On one beautiful day, robots decided to take over the world. Seeing as Spark’s job was taken by a robot, he decided this was the perfect opportunity for his revenge! Spark will have to travel through the world and be engulfed in high-speed thrills and tons of action against the robots and the one who has taken his job.
They also explain the motive for the Kickstarter:
The majority of the game’s initial development has already been finished, and we’re ready for polish iteration. But there is still a lot of work to do. Our major and primary goal with this Kickstarter is to raise funds towards the game’s soundtrack and sound design. Additional funds will be put toward new software and hardware development tools. We also plan to get Spark into Steam Greenlight sometime in the future.
It was confirmed that the old sound team for Sonic: After The Sequel is returning for this game.
The goal is $7,000. We’ll let you know if and when that goal is reached.
