Harmonix has reached their kickstarter campaign goal for Amplitude
As of today, independent game developer Harmonix’s dream of bringing their classic music rhythm game Amplitude from the Playstation 2 to current generation consoles is turning into a reality.
For the past few weeks Harmonix has pleaded with fans via their Kickstarter campaign to help them redevelop an old classic, one they claim will be a “…return to [their] roots…”. Harmonix were not disappointed at the response with their goal of $775,000 being blown out of the water half a day early with funds reaching $811,159.
In an official update on their Kickstarter campaign page, John Drake expressed his gratitude to backers stating “We’re reeling from the news and we’re incredibly humbled by the support from all of you.” then later adding “We can’t begin to thank you enough for your support…”
As a result of the enormous support received, the team at Harmonix have now increased the funding callout to their fans, now offering the promise of an “Online Synchronous head-to-head multiplayer” mode if they can stretch the funds raised up to $1,125,000 within the last few hours of campaigning.
We are now in the last few hours of Harmonix’s Amplitude Kickstarter campaign, so remember to check back here soon to see if they reach their stretch goal of $1,125,000.
Amplitude will be released digitally on Playstation 3 and Playstation 4. A release date has not yet been announced.
