Chicken Wiggle

Yesterday, Jools Watsham announced that he was gauging interest for a possible port of Chicken Wiggle for the Nintendo Switch called Chicken Wiggle: Re-Hatched. It would have a level editor and online sharing (just like the Nintendo 3DS version, with levels created on 3DS playable on Nintendo Switch), but also new HD artwork (+ a retro option for players who prefer the original sprites).

If there’s enough interest, a Kickstarter campaign will be launched to fund such a port. The campaign would have a reasonable funding goal: ~5 digits.
