Kodama Asks For Some Kindness

Kicking Up Leaves

British indie Dan "Tsukasa" Elvins has launched a Kickstarter for "a 2D hand painted, physics based Platformer set in Japans Genroku Period". What that means is he's creating a deeply pretty side-scroller called Kodama. The game features a vegetable protagonist, who has to balance water and sunlight uptake in the way in which he deals with puzzles, as well as respecting Shinto customs. Elvins asks: "Have you ever wanted to relax with a Kappa or play drums with a Tanuki?" Well, I actually haven't, but I know a few Japanophiles who would. See more of the pitch below.

Pretty, no? He's not asking for all that much, either.
