Kickstarter Check-In: Infinity
Incube8 Games has begun a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign for Game Boy Color title Infinity. The game was originally developed from 1999 to 2001 by Affinix Software, but due to it being the end of the handheld’s retail lifespan with the release of the Game Boy Advance, the game was cancelled. However, an unfinished version was released as a ROM in 2016. Incube8 Games has assembled a team including previous members of Affinix Software to produce a finished version of the game.
Infinity is a turn-based tactical RPG. It is set in a fantasy world where an ancient evil’s corruption force has brought two rival nations to the brink of war, with each being supplied by powerful weapons from a shadowy figure. The game follows a disgraced knight who aims to unite the two feuding countries and defeat the evil at the conflict’s heart.
The game features a combat system where positioning plays a key role. Players are able to switch between a “Wait” mode where enemies do not move during the player’s turn, and an “Active” combat mode with four speeds where enemies will move whenever they are able to. It includes six playable characters, over fifty explorable areas, and around twenty hours of gameplay.
Incube8 Games plans to release the game as a digital ROM file as well as in a physical cartridge. It also plans to make the source code available at a later date. The Kickstarter campaign has already far surpassed its CA$16,000 funding goal, with the campaign set to run until September 17, 2021. Those who pledge at least CA$12 will receive a digital copy of the game as part of their backer rewards. It is currently expected to release in late 2022.
