The best success stories are always the ones that skirt dangerously close to failure. So it was with Sword of Fargoal 2's Kickstarter adventure, which saw the retro Rogue-like scrape past its funding amount with seconds to spare.
The game is a true sequel to a C64 dungeon crawler that came out more than a quarter of a century ago and challenged you to raid randomly generated dungeons in order to discover and reclaim the titular sword.
This new polished version will feature new monsters, new dungeons, new heroes - pretty much new everything really, while drawing on the legacy of the original.
If you fancy trying out some old school dungeon crawling action and you can't wait for Fargoal 2, you can grab an iOS port of the original by clicking here.
There's no word yet on the release date of the new game, but if you want to keep updated with all the comings and goings in the world of Fargoal, head over to fargoal.com and have yourself a nosey around.
