After months of development, Disparity Games has taken to Kickstarter to crowdfund some of the cost of their upcoming game, Ninja Pizza Girl! Here’s a description of the game from the Kickstarter page:
Ninja Pizza Girl is a level-based platform game that draws inspiration from “Mirror’s Edge” and the Sega 16-bit classic “Sonic the Hedgehog”. Its deeply-woven story explores bullying, emotional resilience and the importance of boundaries – themes of real relevance that are mostly ignored by the videogames industry.
Backer rewards and tiers include access to the exclusive forum, digital copies of the game for PC and Mac, and Ninja Pizza Girl swag, and even an art book! I love how the tiers are named after pizza toppings.
I had the chance to play one of the earlier builds — you can read my impressions here — as well as one of the most recent pre-pre-pre Alpha builds, and I’m very impressed by what the family at Disparity Games has been able to do to the game in the last few months. A lot has been added since I last had the chance to play NPG and I’m very excited to play some more as the game’s release approaches. I’ll have my impressions of the build I played up tomorrow but in the mean time, check out the demo they’ve prepared for the curious minds. Who knows, you might like it!
Ninja Pizza Girl is currently slated for a 2015 release. Disparity Games is in talks with Sony to release the game on PlayStation platforms.
