Back in the beginning of June, Diesoft Games was looking to bring Little Nemo and the Guardians of Slumberland, a game inspired by the Capcom NES classic, to the Switch. The team was looking for $65k on Kickstarter to make a Switch release happen, and that target was met with ease. The Kickstarter campaign surpassed $80k in total, so we can officially look forward to Little Nemo and the Guardians of Slumberland on Switch sometime down the road.
Little Nemo and the Guardians of Slumberland takes the retro NES-era platformer gameplay of Capcom and Nintendo favorites and brings it to a vast, non-linear world that has been lovingly hand-animated frame-by-frame. You’ll explore as you collect new ability-granting toys and PJs, discover enchanting lands inspired by Winsor McCay’s Little Nemo comics, and encounter a colorful cast of characters — all through the nostalgic lens of an ‘80s/’90s kid.
A few stretch goals were hit for Little Nemo and the Guardians of Slumberland, so the final game will now have an in-game artbook and bestiary, along with an animated intro. About $5k more is needed for an animated outro, and you can help the game hit that stretch goal with late pledges. If you’re interested in kicking some cash towards the project, you can do so here.
