Ghost Song: A Journey of Hope is a fully 2D Metroidvania that is being funded via Kickstarter. Though it started as a much smaller Flash game, the designer and artist, Matt White, is using the Kickstarter as a means to have the game ported to Unity on PC, Mac, and Linux by a more experienced programmer. Currently, Ghost Song is planned to have a large open world similar to games such as Super Metroid, complete with a main story as well as optional side content, and a lonely atmosphere. The Kickstarter cites both Super Metroid and Dark Souls as inspirations for this atmosphere. Despite the Dark Souls inspiration Matt has stated that the game would not be as punishing as that game but rather "Tough but fair".
As of Wednesday, August 7th, the Kickstarter met its $15,000 goal.
The game is set on a moon, Lorian V. The moon is mysterious as no one who has explored it has ever survived. The dead are then kept as "ghosts" who haunt the moon; the only way for a ghost to escape is if their remains are completely destroyed.
