Making games is hard, marketing games and cutting through the noise is just as hard but for Claudia Gorsky they've managed both amazingly well with Ova Magica.
A blending of many genres including farming, life-sim and monster taming with a battle system - Ova Magica sounds like it's going to be a weirdly interesting game to play through. Perhaps that's why it's doing so well on Kickstarter with a campaign set to end on February 26, the €20,000 goal was smashed completely with well over €200,000 from thousands of backers helping to make the game a reality.
With the current funding level it's ticked off a bunch of stretch-goals to add in extra features which include: a marriage system, character customization, the ability to play with blob creatures, an additional blob world, a photo mode, the ability to expand your house and much more.
It very much sounds like Stardew Valley in 3D with monster raising and combat. Ticks quite a few boxes for me I must admit. Linux support is confirmed too and clearly stated.
Interested? You can follow it on Kickstarter and Steam. Plus it's listed on our dedicated crowdfunding page.
