For this week’s Switch Kickstarter Project of the Week, we will be looking at 2for2’s KAPIA. The game is slated to release July 2021 on PC, Mac and Linux, with Switch and other console ports in consideration dependant on the success of the Kickstarter.
Here’s a brief overview:
The World Union has collapsed, the nations are divided into coalitions “East” and “West,” a mysterious intelligent infection is forcing people to live under city lockdown. This is the world that needs saving–the world of KAPIA.
Amidst the chaos, Stefan, a retired pilot and a strong-willed grandfather, takes on the responsibility of ending the conflict. Little does he know his most powerful ally will be his little granddaughter, Reny.
A traditional point-and-click flow with an easily accessible drop-down inventory. To make things more exciting, we added a first-person close-up menu where you can interact with various items.
People have different sides to them; the same goes for characters in KAPIA. Discover the story from different perspectives as you play for both Stefan and Reny. Follow their own unique paths to achieve a common goal.
Five years ago, in Latvia, the idea for our point-and-click adventure KAPIA took its final form. Self-funded and produced by our family, our game encompasses a wide range of people and their ideas from different parts of the world.
I have really been feeling point and click adventures recently and their power to tell a powerful story coupled with logic based puzzles are always memorable. KAPIA‘s eastern-European setting adds a lot of depth to its wackiness of the characters and NPCs which doesn’t get explored nearly as much as it should. In addition, 2for2’s acknowledgment of character’s, just like people, having their own sides and perspectives on matters tells me that at its core, KAPIA‘s characters are going to be impactful and strong.
KAPIA requires $12,000USD and it is currently sitting at $5,339USD after 147 backers with 25 days remaining. If you’d like to support the development of this game to help it come to Nintendo Switch, click the link below to visit the Kickstarter page.
