Incube8 ran an interesting Kickstarter campaign for a title called Infinity. The initial CA$16,000 was quickly raised, and the campaign only continued to blow up from there. A Nintendo Switch stretch goal was added towards the very end, and supporters helped to blow past that stretch goal as well, guaranteeing the game will release on both the Game Boy Color and Switch. This is not the only new Game Boy game in recent months (Which you can currently back on Kickstarter), but Infinity is a very unique story.
Before we get to the story, check out the Kickstarter trailer:
For those unfamiliar, Infinity was originally being developed by Affinix Software between 1999 and 2001 for the Game Boy Color platform. Unfortunately, the project was shutdown in 2002 due to the release of the Game Boy Advance and the rise of publisher issues.
An unfinished version of Infinity was released as a free ROM back in 2016, but a team of both new and old staffers came together in order to finish the game and put it out on a Game Boy Color cartridge.
It must feel incredibly good to see your game that was shutdown nearly 20 years ago get a second chance at life, but not only that, the Kickstarter campaign proved that there wasn’t only interest in the game, but loads of interest, as they ended up raising a total of CA$370,823.
Thanks to the successful campaign, Infinity will also be releasing on the Nintendo Switch, which is wonderful news as well. The Switch version will have improved audio as well as modern aspect ratios.
Incube8 plans to release Infinity some time in mid-2022. You can learn a whole lot more about the game and its campaign on the official Kickstarter page, but since the campaign is over, you will not be able to back the project any more. However, you can follow them on their website, where you can currently pre-order their other title The Year After and wait to do the same for Infinity.
