Stardew Valley is one of the best and most addictive games around, and now a new indie team is mixing that gameplay with another all-time great – The Legend of Zelda. That game is Cloudscape, and it’s just concluded its Kickstarter campaign with four times the team’s original goal – along with smashing every one of its stretch goals, too.
The Kickstarter for Cloudscape launched a month ago with the modest goal of $50,000, before concluding on Friday with an excellent total of $208,806 from 4,027 backers – with five of those backers pledging at least $1600 to the project. The campaign’s stretch goals included new expansions, seasonal events, new romantic partners, extra game modes, and even multiplayer. It broke all of these.
Developer Konitama specifically references The Legend of Zelda, Stardew Valley, and Animal Crossing as references, with Cloudscape combining “all of the great aspects of these games” into one adventure. Players will be able to customise their own private island, meet and romance villagers, raise animals, and more – so far, so Stardew.
