Pixel artist and programmer Joshua Cross seeks funding for his fishing-themed adventure game Sealark in a recently launched Kickstarter campaign.
According to Cross, Sealark is a colorful side-scroller about "fishing a bunch of fish, meeting a bunch of folks, solving some tough puzzles, beating up some bosses, and a little dating if that's the kind of fisherman you are." The game is planned to launch for Windows, Mac, and Linux, and will feature a large explorable world and multiple seasons that affect gameplay.
A few days after the campaign's debut, Cross has already surpassed his initial funding goal of $5,000, and is on track to reach his highest stretch goals. Backer rewards include digital copies of the game ($10), commissioned art ($100), and an appearance in-game as a fish ($250).
