John Mambo is a retro-style 2D video game coming to a CPU near you & maybe a few consoles

Having just started on Indiegogo, Iction Games' John Mambo is trying another round of crowd funding.
I love the look and feel of Iction Games' John Mambo as well as the concept. John Mambo looks like a ton of fun! I heard about this last Fall. Strangely, this game fell very short of it's $25K Kickstarter goal last October. Now, on Indiegogo I hope it will fare better. Check out the John Mambo Indiegogo campaign

It's worth mentioning that Iction is using the "flexible" funding option that guarantees them all the funds even if the goal is not met. Personally, that's a deal-breaker for me, having been burned on other crowd funded games (no relation to Iction Games). But I will emphatically re-state, this game looks awesomely fun!

John Mambo will initially be a computer game for Windows, Mac and Linux, with PS4 and Xbox One versions as stretch goals. Last year's Kickstarter campaign mentioned Nintendo Switch as a potential stretch goal, but I see no mention of it this round. This looks like a great game for Switch with it's co-op play option. One can hope... :)

John Mambo video game A Retro Arcade Game with an Isometric top down view! You play a one-man army, a gung-ho fighter crazy enough to embark on a dangerous mission in the heart of a jungle all by himself... (or with his co-op partner). Explore various landscapes, infiltrate enemy bases and cities occupied by the enemy. Nothing will stand in his way!
