For this week’s Switch Kickstarter Project of the Week, we will be looking at Pocket Llama’s Toasty. The game is slated to release in late 2022 on PC. In regards to a Switch port and stretch goals, here is what they had to say:
We have a few stretch goals planned but we don’t wanna announce any until we hit our initial goal. Don’t worry, we have some cool stuff planned so check this page and our social media often. Some new characters, some new modes, maybe a port to a console or two, we’ll see.
Here’s the overview:
Toasty is a new game coming soon to PC! It’s the story of a cute (but tough) knight, an outlandish fantasy world, and a dark power waiting to strike! This brand new action-adventure game is full of memorable characters, fast-paced gameplay, and, at its gooey center, a touching story about finding out who you are. Join Marshall the marshmallow knight and countless others as you explore this world and protect it with your all!
Toasty is a fun, new, and unique game with a core of action-adventure gameplay reminiscent of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Chrono Trigger, MOTHER, and Golden Sun. This game sets itself apart from others with fun genre-busting moments as you duel in a courtroom, race bikers, try not to get too burnt, and find lots of secrets. Not to mention, you play as a marshmallow with a sword, what more could you want?!
Storytelling takes a front line role in Toasty. The Land of Geldia has lost its champion to an ancient evil… Now a new hero will rise to the occasion and take his first squishy steps to greatness!
Marshall, the young knight with no memory of his past, has a newfound sense of purpose — Protect the strange citizens of this land from the horrors of the mysterious force known as THE AFTERLIFE. Marshall will make a perilous journey across Geldia, seeking out his memories, gaining new allies, and exploring the very fabric of reality itself!
The description of the gameplay being reminiscent of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Chrono Trigger, MOTHER, and Golden Sun seems spot on. Visually, I instantly saw MOTHER 3 and that is very exciting. Toasty seems like a perfect fit on Nintendo Switch considering considering all four inspirations are games that either exclusive or originated on a Nintendo console. The game itself is absolutely bursting with colour and personality to call its own.
Toasty requires US $30,000 and it is currently sitting at US $11,148 after 152 backers with 34 days remaining, however we would want to surpass that to secure a Nintendo Switch port.
