    As reported earlier, PaRappa the Rapper developer Masaya Matsuura and Gitaroo Man creator, Keiichi Yano will be collaborating to create a brand new rhythm game IP titled Project Rap Rabbit.

    While little information was available then, now the cat's out of the bag and a KickStarter campaign has been revealed.

    £35 + P&P. Just not worth it for a kickstarter.

    Looks like might be fun but clearly they are targetting the cutsey market.

    Not unheard of as example PoE 2: Deadfire made $4.4 million out of projected $1.1 million. But I'm a bit skeptical about rhythm games on regards of broader appeal. Hopefully they make it work out as this could be a nice game to waste time on a console.

    Disappointed Sony isn't officially supporting them and instead they have to use Kickstarter. :(

    I'm guessing the dev team of MotorStorm will crank up something similar in the future.

    For the sake of the industry, I hope no one backs this. We can't just keep throwing money at unfinished nostalgia cash-ins before they've even made them.

    I mean I like the people behind it a lot, and I'm hopeful for anything they produce. I just really don't want to waste money on a crowd funded project. More power to them though.

    Those stretch goals, holy fuck.
    Over a million to fund the game but one extra level that's backer exclusive is another $700,000?
    Almost 3 million to get something as basic as multiplayer and $500,000 past that to get something as basic as a difficulty selection?

    No gameplay either, only concept art. We all know how Mighty Number 9 looked compared to the concept art.

    Something tells me this is gonna go the wayside of that apocalypse now game Kickstarter. Except the Apocalypse now game actually sounded interesting.

    I think you're misreading it. There will be three difficulty levels in the base game, that stretch goal will add a fourth to it.

    Honestly, it looks interesting to me and I'd consider backing it if kickstarter supported a payment method I could actually use. I hope they make it, but I don't really expect them to actually reach the goal.
