Super Mario Bros. Crossover developer Exploding Rabbit has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the creation of Super Retro Squad, a Windows and Mac platformer that features original characters, art, and music.

(And it's already reached its funding goal! Man, that was fast.)

Super Retro Squad's gameplay will be similar to Crossover's, and will include multiple playable characters that each have their own powers and themed levels. Super Retro Squad features online cooperative play for up to four players, and will include more than 40 levels inspired by a variety of classic 8-bit and 16-bit titles.

Though development has been funded, Exploding Rabbit now targets stretch goals for translations into multiple languages and the addition of leaderboards, achievements, and a time attack mode.

Backers who pledge $15 or more will get a copy of the game upon its release, while higher pledge tiers offer downloadable soundtracks, in-game cameos, personalized dialogue, and (my favorite reward) a custom-made Let's Play video series for any game of your choice.
