Man, it's great when a Kickstarter leads to an actual product instead of just crushed hopes and dreams. Buddy & Me is a Kickstarter-funded platformer starring a beautifully animated boy and his mysteriously magical flying pal, Buddy. Sure, it is another endless runner, but the mechanics of how the boy interacts with Buddy seems really cool. Check it out:
Our community has been awfully excited for the game, and I'm stoked to see how this "companionship mechanic" actually plays out. We'll have more coverage on the game soon, but it just hit international App Stores, which seemed worth posting about. It's not really clear yet if this is a NZ-only soft launch or if it's going worldwide, but, best case scenario Buddy & Me will be everywhere at 11:00 PM Eastern.
