Incube8 Games contains a mix of developers from the original team, as well as some new members. If the Kickstarter is successful when it launches this summer, the Game Boy Color cartridges will be produced by Retro Modding. Incube8 Games has a newsletter that will provide subscribers with information on the Kickstarter campaign, and subscribers will also get "an exclusive medley of Infinity’s soundtrack."
Infinity is an 8-bit RPG with over 50 areas for players to explore, six heroes to control, and more than 100 items that can be obtained. The game's graphics seem reminiscent of titles like The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons. Fans of the Game Boy Color handheld will definitely want to keep an eye on this one; from the trailer, it certainly looks like it would have been a strong swan song for the hardware!
The end of the Game Boy Color proved troublesome for a lot of developers and their games. Games like Shantae that released late in the system's lifespan received smaller print runs, making them extremely hard to come by. It's unsurprising to hear Infinity was a casualty from that era, but that might finally get rectified when the Kickstarter goes live later this year.
