St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) May 20, 2013
The recently-launched Kickstarter campaign for Pixel Press, an upcoming mobile app that allows users to draw, design and publish their own video games with no coding required, today announced modified stretch goals for the Android version – from $350,000 to $125,000.
The Pixel Press Kickstarter campaign, launched on May 7, 2013, asks for $100,000 of funding to support the development of its iOS app, which would require only a shorthand writing system, grid paper and an iOS device for users to design, play and share their own video games. Pixel Press will now make both the Android and iOS versions available by December 2013 if the Kickstarter campaign reaches $125,000 in funding.
“We want Pixel Press as a platform to be about games, not devices. Soon after our launch, we realized that it was important to support a wider audience of mobile gamers from the start,” said Robin Rath, creator of Pixel Press. “Initially, the cost of developing Pixel Press for a much broader platform was our rationale for the higher price point, but after an outpouring of Pixel Press enthusiasm from Android users, it became clear that this was an investment worth making. We want to make Android a big part of the Pixel Press story and we need your help to make it happen.”
Rath also cites that an earlier build of the Android version will make for an easier expansion into other platforms, including Windows Phone, PC desktop and Mac, and will be more accessible for the younger generation of tablet users.
In conjunction with the Android announcement, Pixel Press also announced that users will be able to play their Pixel Press games with the Android robot character as a token of gratitude to Android users worldwide.
Committed to making Pixel Press for Android a reality regardless of stretch goals, Rath also states that the Android version will be made available by June 2014 if the Kickstarter campaign only reaches its $100,000 goal. Pixel Press for iOS will continue to maintain its December 2013 release deadline if $100,000 is raised.
After less than two weeks on Kickstarter, Pixel Press has raised over 26% of its $100,000 goal. The Kickstarter campaign ends on June 13, 2013.
