chibi2I love it when young kids team up with grown-up talent to bring the ideas from their under-developed brains into the real world, because it’s almost always amazing and hilarious. Look at Axe Cop for crying out loud, a brilliant masterpiece, but partially because the person at the wheel hadn’t finished grade school, and that makes for interesting storytelling. It turns out that the same idea has been adapted by Nick Pasto and his 8-year-old daughter who hope to bring us Super Chibi Knight, a sequel to a browser game with a similar, albeit less super, title.

Now not only will Super Chibi Knight be written by an 8 year old, but it’s being programmed by Newgrounds.com’s 2012 GOTY winner, and from what is shown on the Kickstarter page, this is going to be one hell of a game if it can get some funding. Upgradable weaponry and armor, giant boss battles, and multiple class paths make this game look like a fun, simple, and not-to-hard RPG romp, and while the graphics leave a little to be desired, I would love to see this come to fruition.

At the rate Super Chibi Knight it going it’s going to smash it’s goal and go deep into stretch goal territory, where things like new quests, areas, and a beast mount await.  The story that will come out of this 8-year-old’s brain will almost certainly not disappoint. Still seeking funding, it’s Super Chibi Knight.
