A month ago, we reported that the thematic sequel to Patapon had reached its Kickstarter goal within an hour, and now the campaign for Ratatan is over. In the end, they raised over ten times more than the initial goal, amassing close to $1.5 million to develop the game.
The project has also reached several stretch goals, including console versions of the game, collaboration with composer David Wise, and orchestral music. They’ve already made significant progress in development, but there’s still a lot of work ahead. Currently, they plan to release the finished game in April 2025, with beta testing for backers along the way.
To celebrate the end of the campaign, they held a lengthy stream yesterday, showcasing the game and discussing what’s next on the horizon.
