adventuresofpip1Back in May, we covered the first Adventures of Pip Kickstarter campaign a little bit. Personally, I was excited about the idea: an itty, bitty pixel evolving into a complete character level by level. It’s different, I loved it, and I certainly wasn’t the only one who did. TicToc Games sought for $90K to fund the remaining development for Adventures of Pip and though $35K was raised, it certainly wasn’t enough.

So, TicToc Games sat down and divided aspects of Adventures of Pip that were completely necessary and what could be altered to cut down the development cost significantly. A lot, lot, lot, lot of changes were made, and it seems like the phrase “less is more” rings true in this case. This revival of Adventures of Pip may be what the developers needed. Now, Pip has less evolutions and his core abilities have been changed completely. However, TicToc has maintained the same story and environmental design. Adventures of Pip is planned to still be released on Windows, Mac, and Wii U.

For those who need a little refreshment: Adventures of Pip takes place in the Pixel Kingdom, where the conniving skeleton queen acquired all pixels in the Kingdom after capturing the Pixel Princess. But there is one pixel that is different, one who has always been a pixel. Pip takes it upon himself to save the Pixel Kingdom and put an end to the Skeleton Queen’s tirade.

Now, TicToc Games has relaunched their Kickstarter campaign for the Adventures of Pip, this time only asking for $40K to carry along the remaining development. The funds will mainly go towards adding extra levels, enemies, and difficult boss battles. If certain stretch goals are met, Adventures of Pip may be exported to next generation consoles as well.
