Originally launched in 2004, Motherload has been played millions of times online, and has inspired a number of similar browser games. The updated Super Motherload will be a fully fledged release for Windows and Mac platforms, and boasts multiple playable characters, a story mode, and cooperative (and/or competitive) multiplayer for up to four players.
Super Motherload's funding goal is $50,000, and a prerelease copy of the game is available for a $15 pledge. Other backer bonuses include t-shirts, poster prints, physical copies of the game, and -- perhaps best of all -- an official tabletop board game adaptation of Super Motherload.
