The Game Boy action-adventure RPG Glory Hunters exceeded its goal on Kickstarter with more than three weeks to go.
César Arminio with Mexican indie studio 2think says that the project reached its funding goal of $39,127. So far, the game has raised $45,419 with 23 days left before the campaign ends.
As we have previously noted, Glory Hunters is an original Game Boy with a unique and original twist: you progress through the game through achievements. Glory points are the main currency to obtain achievements. Earn these glory points by performing glorious deeds that award them. Gather materials, aid the townsfolk in various quests, or dive into dungeons to defeat different kinds of mobs.
The developers estimate that the game provides over 20 hours of gameplay with excellent replay value. If you want to try it before you pledge, there is a free Glory Hunters demo accessible on Itch.io. Meanwhile, you can support the Kickstarter campaign here.
The plan is to release a Game Boy ROM and Steam version. $9.80 will get you a digital version of the game while a physical cartridge requires a minimum $70 pledge. The developers say that they hope to eventually make a Nintendo Switch version as a stretch goal.
