With only 38 hours to go, the developers of Ninja Pizza Girl managed to raise the cash it was seeking from its Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign. Australia-based Disparity Games managed to raise $35,816 AUD – a little over the $35,000 AUD it was initially seeking.
The developers of Ninja Pizza Girl describe the game as "a level-based platform game that draws inspiration from 'Mirror’s Edge' and the Sega 16-bit classic 'Sonic the Hedgehog.'" But the more interesting aspect of the game is a narrative about dealing with bullying, emotional resilience, and the importance of boundaries.
The developers are looking to hit one stretch goal at $40,000 AUD – "Includification." If that goal is met it will enable them to include features that support those with various disabilities. The stretch goals were switch around at the last minute after meeting its funding goal because the developers felt that this was a very important stretch goal to meet.
You can still contribute to the Kickstarter and help Disparity Games hit it by visiting the Kickstarter campaign page.
