For Immediate Release

April 26, 2014

“It's already so much fun to mess around in - and so pretty, too, with its colourful, playschool art - that it's hard to see how the final game can improve on the demo.“


“Cosmochoria is a sugar shock of sweet arcade fun in a beautifully psychedelic wrapper! Nate Schmold's debut game is a labor of love that deserves a wide and appreciative audience. “

- Jason Kapalka (Co-Founder of PopCap)

Cosmochoria—the arcade game for Mac/PC/Linux (and almost Wii U) about a tiny naked cosmonaut who plants seeds in a dying universe—is in the final stages of its month-long Kickstarter campaign, having already met with a resounding success & being Greenlit for sale on Steam in the process.

Nate Schmold, the developer of Cosmochoria, officially launched the Kickstarter campaign on March 27th and since then has gone on to more than double the initially requested development goal of $10,000, meeting stretch goals like unlockable in-game costumes, additional gameplay modes and an endless version which promises an infinite procedural experience.

With days to spare on the Kickstarter campaign and less than $5,000 away from meeting the stretch goal that promises to bring Wii U support to this quirky little indie game, the future truly looks bright for Cosmochoria.

With Kickstarter exclusive T-Shirts, Signed & Numbered Art Prints, personalized cartoon drawings, and a Kickstarter exclusive collectible physical release of the game (complete with a usb key fashioned from actual plant matter), there are a lot of take home treasures to be had. All in addition to a DRM-Free digital copy of the game itself—available at a ‘early bird’ reward tier of $9.

Aside from the game itself, one of the most interesting aspects of the campaign is the fact that every pledge—regardless of the amount—automatically comes with the bonus of a tree planted in Africa in honour of the Kickstarter backer. With the current backer total sitting at around 940 backers—it translates to, a literal forest of amazing support for Nate Schmold & his game about a little naked cosmonaut.
