The dev is looking towards a release next month and the game is already being beta tested. The project's Kickstarter was a huge success, earning nearly triple its pledge goal, which should speak volumes about the game's potential.

Release platforms are "PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android" and possibly Xbox Live Indie Arcade and web-browser.
