Remember my article on Percy's Predicament? That Wii U indie game that got trashed for looking like a Nintendo 64 game? And I made a spirited defense of it? Maestro Interactive Games is still in business, now conducting a Kickstarter campaign! Their newest game? Luna's Tale: Curse of the Forgotten Doll! (Click here for the campaign.)
Go support it. Oh, I'm sure you want more reasons than my endorsement. Well, sure. It's coming out on all the now-current gen consoles plus your PC. And Mac! Of course, and most importantly, that includes the Wii U!
From the introduction:
"Maestro Interactive Games is an independent game studio working on our next project, a 2.5D Platformer; Luna's Tale: Curse of the Forgotten Doll.
Imagine taking a hand-painted world and turning it into an amazing side-scrolling platforming adventure. Luna's Tale delivers a mixture of adventure, storytelling, and platforming from games we know and love, like Donkey Kong Country and Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, but with a completely fresh feel for today’s gamer."

After this failed, KoopaTV didn't do indie Kickstarter advocacy for several years until this guest post.
