Musical Roguelike Band Saga Gets Wii U, PS4, And 3DS Stretch Goals



    The folks behind musical action roguelike Band Saga have updated the game’s Kickstarter campaign with stretch goals that, if reached, would see the game coming to Wii U, PlayStation 4, and the Nintendo 3DS.


    Previously, when we covered Band Saga, the game was slated only for PC, iOS, and had a stretch goal for PlayStation Vita. These extra platforms were added as stretch goals due to fan demand. However, not all is looking so good for Band Saga in the final hours of its Kickstarter.


    Despite the game having a playable demo at TGS, it receiving support from the Mighty No. 9 team, and the customizable music-based level generation being detailed in all its glory, Band Saga hasn’t yet reached its primary funding goal of $29,000, and there are only a couple of days left for it to do so.


    The chances of it ever reaching the $45,000 for PlayStation Vita, $55,000 for Wii U, $60,000 for PlayStation 4, and the grand $100,000 for 3DS, are pretty slim, then. Unless, of course, you’re as enthusiastic about the game as Siliconera reader British_Otaku, who was keen to let us know of these stretch goal updates, and continue to help spread the word of its Kickstarter, or contribute to its crowdfunding amount yourself.


    A quick reminder: Band Saga is about two friends that go on a road trip that takes them across Earth and space to become rock stars. It plays a little like Mega Man if it were played from an isometric view, and each of the levels are generated by the game’s soundtrack, which you can mix yourself to tweak the algorithms.


    Artists in the soundtrack include creator Rekcahdam (Celestial Mechanica), the two people the game’s main characters are based on, which are Disasterpeace (Fez) and Laura Shigihara (Plants vs. Zombies), as well as Stemage, Mega Ran, Danimal Cannon, and others. In fact, you can listen to the soundtrack here for free.

    Thanks to Siliconera reader British Otaku for the heads up!
