Yacht Club Games Announces “Mina the Hollower” Kickstarter Project

Yacht Club Games recently held a livestream, which focused on updates for several of their currently released games as well as featuring some surprises. One of the major announcements was the unveil of a brand new 2d action adventure game that is design to be a throwback to the games that were released for the Gameboy Color. The game is titled, “Mina the Hollower,” and is the latest of the team’s Kickstarter game projects. The game will requires a goal of at least $311,503 to fund the game. For those who are not familiar with Yacht Club Games, they are the team behind Shovel Knight along with its’ various spinoff titles as well as Cybershadow.

Yacht Club Games released a trailer for the project.


Additionally, the official Kickstarter page featured a synopsis for the game.

Mina the Hollower is a bone-chilling action adventure featuring classic gameplay and an 8-bit aesthetic in the style of Game Boy Color, refined for the modern era. Smooth 60fps action combat, a world full of mystery and horror, and top-down adventuring combine in a mix that may remind you of classic titles like Castlevania, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, or even Bloodborne. Whip foes, burrow through the ground, and explore a pixel-perfect world in Mina the Hollower, a brand new game from the developers who brought you Shovel Knight!

Similar to their previous projects the game will feature several tiers. Those who fund at least $20 will get a digital copy of the game as well as some digital wallpaper. The game is currently set to be available for Playstation 4, Playstation 5, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One. If the game gets funded the game will be released in December 2023.

Those who are interested in finding out more about the game or if you are interested in funding the game can check out the official Kickstarter page listed below.

I must admit I am quite hyped for this game since I loved this style of gameplay. While it was great to see Yacht Club Games bring a new renaissance of 2d platformers, this style of game has been far rarer especially in the modern day. After seeing the trailer I definitely like what I am seeing and I might end up backing it one day.
