The second game from Monsoon Studios has managed to attract the attention of retro game lovers.
Monsoon Studios, a retro game and 8-bit and 16-bit graphics-loving indie studio, reported today that its latest game, Copper Jacket, has raised over $16,000 on Kickstarter since the campaign concluded. This is the company’s debut game for a retro console, the classic NES in this case.
A new retro action-shooter is on the block
Copper Jacket is an NES action-shooter game for one to two players in which our aim is to destroy the evil Commander Zaslavsky, who has kidnapped your future wife in order to force you to do his dirty work. You must get through his defenses to reach his command center, which is perched atop a snowy mountain and where your loved one is being held captive.
We may play Copper Jacket alone or with a friend locally on the same screen, which has piqued the interest of many backers because it keeps the essence of the console games of the time. More than 244 backers contributed to the Kickstarter campaign, allowing Monsoon Studios to raise more than $16,000. That is $7000 more than their estimated target. The goal is for five planets with 13 levels, a slew of foes, and upgradeable weapons.
Retro console games are becoming increasingly popular. The good news is that 90% of the titles that make it into our area of vision are either really fascinating games or have great art, so it’s encouraging to see developers continue to gamble on this niche that continues to grow in popularity.
