Today’s Indie news: latest Kickstarter update for Heart Forth, Alicia, but also…

  • Celeste
  • Shovel Knight

Heart Forth, Alicia

Yesterday, the developers of Heart Forth, Alicia shared the latest Kickstarter update for the game. In this one, they talk about the following:

  • General Development Report
  • Game Analytics
  • Other Development Updates
  • and more…

In this update, they reveal that the game now runs at a 16:9 aspect ratio instead of 15:9. They initially chose 15:9 to accommodate the 3DS’ resolution, but since the Kickstarter campaign didn’t reach the stretch goal, they decided to go with 16:9 instead. Besides, with the Nintendo Switch releasing next month, they’re more inclined to set their sights on a possible Nintendo Switch port instead.

About the Wii U version, it will be released as planned, and will not be cancelled.

Yesterday, Matt Thorson announced that Celeste was coming to the Nintendo Switch later this year. It’s a tough-as-nails retro platformers from the creators of TowerFall, where you have to climb a mountain.

Here’s a trailer and some screenshots for the game:

Shovel Knight

Alongside the Specter of Torment expansion, Shovel Knight will receive a brand new Software update. That update will add something that will please many a player… more save data slots! To be more precise, players will have twice the usual number of slots, which means they will not have to delete a previous save to play one of the upcoming expansions!

Unfortunately, we do not have a release date for the Shovel Knight update and the Specter of Torment expansion.
