A number of high profile game creators have turned to Kickstarter to try and fund new projects over the last few years, but as a huge fan of – what I’d guess you’d call – personality-driven rhythm-action games, the launch of the Project Rap Rabbit Kickstarter campaign a couple of weeks ago really jumped out at me.
This is a project, after all, from a veritable who’s who in that sub-genre – Masaya Matsuura, the creator of PaRappa the Rapper, Um Jammer Lammy and Vib Ribbon, Keiichi Yano, the driving force behind Gitaroo man, Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan and Elite Beat Agents, and Atsushi Saito, the man responsible for the incredible visual style – and initial premise – of Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan.
