Krome Studios is running a new Kickstarter campaign to bring TY the Tasmanian Tiger 2: Bush Rescue HD to consoles.
This time, the company is seeking $75,000 in funding to update and release the platforming title for Switch, PS4, And Xbox One.
About TY the Tasmanian Tiger 2: Bush Rescue
TY the Tasmanian Tiger™ 2: Bush Rescue™ is the sequel to Krome Studios’ charming Australiana-themed videogame. First released for the PlayStation 2, Nintendo GameCube, and the Xbox in 2004, it features more rangs, more vehicles, more mechs, and more EVERYTHING… in an open world Aussie Adventure.
We’re seeking $75,000 to bring TY the Tasmanian Tiger 2: Bush Rescue HD to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with the goal of shipping all by July 1, 2021, and released in that order.
What Krome Will Spend The Kickstarter Funds On To Remaster TY2HD:
- Support for Nintendo’s Joy-Con™ controller for motion controls for throwing the rangs, gliding, precision boomeranging and driving!
- Add dynamic shadows, water reflection, adaptive brightness, enhanced draw distances and enhanced textures and particle effects in handheld mode for all versions; with improved loading.
- For the PS4, XB1 and Switch in docked mode, we’ll also be looking at adding color correction and bloom and anti-aliasing.
- 27 Achievements/Trophies for the XB1 and PS4, plus a Platinum Trophy for the PS4.
- PS4 and Xbox Leaderboards for the individual cart races, and speed runs
- New Gamemode called “Hardcore Mode”
- Heaps of QA testing and problem fixing
- Outside help to do specialized submission testing for meeting specific Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft platform requirements (aka lot check, TRCs, and TCRs)
- New TY character and Fourbie skins/looks (a stretch goal feature)
- A new Burramudgee resident joins Bush Rescue, YOU! (a backer reward)
- Updating the credits to include this campaign’s Backers (requires backing us in this Kickstarter campaign, and answering the post-Kickstarter survey)
- Compatible with both the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite* (*requires extra controllers to be able to use the TY motion controls. i.e. throwing and gliding.)
- For reference, TY the Tasmanian Tiger HD was similarly kickstarted for Nintendo Switch back in 2019 – with many fans contributing to its success.
