Ribbiting Saga from Happy Ogre sadly didn't pass the crowdfunding test but it's not the end. This SNES-inspired action adventure game is instead now taking pre-orders, with Early Access coming instead.

Writing on Kickstarter, the developer noted how they've "learned a ton from the process" and so they're going onto Steam with Early Access in around 2-3 months. They've put a pre-order page up, which is clearly stating Linux support.

You can see the original Kickstarter trailer below:

They've decided to change a few parts of the game as well. Instead of it having standard sword-based combat, the main weapon is instead going to be an "arm-cannon" to make it a little different. This, they said, should open up the game to "cool abilities and puzzles that wouldn't otherwise be possible". However, it's not going to be like a twin-stick shooter so it's still giving a Zelda-like feel apparently.

Feature Highlight:

  • Ribbiting Saga is Zelda with an arm-cannon! 
  • Explore a non-linear open world. 
  • Face shape-shifting dungeons and bosses! 
  • Blast foes with a unique set of weapons! 
  • Solve puzzles by experimenting with your abilities! 
  • Catch legendary fish!
  • Replay tons of times thanks to Randomizer, Speedrun, and Corrupted modes!
  • Toadally Awesome Tunes

For those interested in their retro-inspired action and puzzle adventures like this, I will be following it along to let you know when it becomes available. They said they're working on a demo, so I will give that a run once it's out to get a feel for it.

Some of this looks so much like Zelda that I wonder if they might get in trouble for it.
