Of course, Davis needs your help in donations to make this all possible, but describes his crowdfunding as more of an “open, relaxed Kickstarter with no time limit”, where your purchase provides you with instant access to the current version as a devbuild, as well as free updates throughout its development – similar to how Notch-born Minecraft was created. Sharing his excitement on becoming an officially licensed Wii U developer, Davis had the following to say below. Check out the official Project Cider page for more information.
“The kid in me is so thrilled to be making a game for a major Nintendo console that I dug up all my Nintendo Powers from 1988 onward and have been pouring over them for inspiration. It’s a good feeling, and I think that’s already making its way into the game design. I’m fulltime developing Project CIDER now, and the next few months are especially going to be very intense with a lot of rapid development. It’s a very exciting time.”
