Indie developers Sunbreak Games are hoping to bring their 2D platformer Buddy & Me to the Wii U after a new stretch goal was added to its kickstarter campaign. Created for iOS and Android devices the lighthearted adventure, plugged as a ‘game for everyone’ but with enough depth and challenge for serial gamers, is aiming for enough backers to reach their $40,000 goal. But they only have one week to go, so they need the help of backers to get Buddy & Me converted for the Wii U.
Buddy & Me is a tale focused on friendship where the protagonist is followed by a giant orange mythical flying creature, striking a similar cord to the 80s film The NeverEnding Story. Every night, after the boy has fallen asleep, he is transported to an enchanted forest where he jumps, runs, plays, glides and swings through the treetops with his flying best friend. You can check out the trailer for Buddy & Me here, and if you’d like to pledge your support for the magical game just visit their kickstarter page.
