Starbound developer Chucklefish announced that it will publish the Metroidvania-style role-playing game Heart Forth, Alicia. Chucklefish will enable developer Alonso Martin to bring the game to platforms beyond Windows PC. The game has been in development for seven years and is currently seeking $60,000 in a Kickstarter campaign. As of this writing the game has already collected $59,368 of its $60,000 goal. By the time you read this, the game will likely hit its initial funding goal.
Heart Forth, Alicia is described as a retro-RPG inspired by such games as Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, the Legend of Zelda and Xenogears.
"Chucklefish Games are a group of talented people helping us with our business responsibilities, marketing, distribution, and although they will not be providing Heart Forth, Alicia with funding at any point, they are opening up the doors for console porting," reads a statement from the company in the latest Kickstarter campaign update. "They're very nice people, too, and working together has been really smooth because they completely understand the development process of a game."
