Bittersweet Birthday, the upcoming half bullet-hell half adventure-exploration game by developer World Eater Games is coming to the Nintendo Switch and PC late next year.
After launching an Indiegogo campaign back in August, the action-horror game Bittersweet Birthday has gone on to reach its initial goal. Originally wanting to reach the goal of $23,000/£16,720, it has now raised $23,770/£17,280 across 308 backers. Amazingly, two backers have claimed the $2,000 tier titled Party Pooper, while an additional backer has claimed the $2,000 tier Party Crasher. There are still 43 hours left of the campaign to go. So, if you are interested in supporting the game there’s still time. Perhaps you fancy chucking in a dollarydoo or two or even picking up that last Party Crasher tier?
