Crowdfunded revivals of classic video game franchises are nothing new — over the past couple years we’ve seen new takes on Shadowrun, Mega Man and River City Ransom hit Kickstarter (to name just a few). But hey, what about the games that aren’t cult favorites? The ones we’ve all forgotten about (often intentionally)? Don’t they deserve a shot at a comeback too?
Well, no, not really, but that isn’t going to stop James Pond from trying!
Yup, James Pond, the “classic” 16-bit series that started with a lame fish pun and went from there is going to be hitting Kickstarter starting tomorrow. Hit the jump for a hype video…
Well, this is it — the ultimate 90s nostalgia litmus test. If a new James Pond can get funded, then literally any game series from the 90s can. Get your credit cards ready for the inevitable Aero the Acrobat and Bubsy campaigns!
