People power is a wonderful thing and in the world of video games, it’s made even more apparent with successful Kickstarters. Thanks to some incredibly positive crowdfunding, collect-a-thon game 40 Winks is coming to the Nintendo 64 nearly a couple of decades after it was cancelled all those years ago. PlayStation fans, however, got to enjoy it in 1999 but the Ninty port never saw the light of day due to Publisher issues.
Piko Interactive has taken it upon themselves to resurrect unfinished and cancelled games and their campaign to bring back 40 Winks to N64 is a resounding success already after it smashed through its goal of $20,000 and the total pledged so far sits proudly around the $60,000 mark with three weeks left to go.
Check out all the details on the Kickstarter page right here.
Here’s some info about 40 Winks:
