We're taking a short break from Zelda: Breath of the Wild to let you know Joe Granato is making waves, both with the game Mystic Searches and the documentary The New 8-Bit Heroes. Not only did he make several variants of Mystic Searchesavailable for order, you can also sign up for a cart copy of the beta game, Mystic Origins. Mystic Origins isn't just a prototype slice of Mystic Searches, it is its own unique game that serves as a short, standalone prequel quest. It allows you to try out the gameplay of Mystic Searches without giving away any of the actual narrative! Here's what what ol' Joe had to say, with links below!

The New 8-bit Heroes (documentary about the NES postaftermarket development community) is out and doing well, and the game whose creation the documentary follows (Mystic Searches) is finally, after 2 years, in beta. We are showing off what is essentially a prequel-quest for the game via a Steam link... We are trying for a big push this week on Steam and could really use the help of NA to get the word out about the film, the game, and the beta.
The Kickstarter just went live on the 15th, and it's already up to over $1,000! If you are interested in checking it out, click the picture above and watch the video to see if you'd like to help them reach the very attainable goal of $5,000.
The good news is that the game is done, so there won't be years of waiting for a project to be completed, like some of the other Kickstarter campaigns. The only thing lacking is more levels, which they are letting the backers create themselves! When you're viewing the campaign you can also download demos for either NES or PC to see if it's up your alley.
There are various tiers for all price points, so it definitely won't break the bank to contribute.
