Kickstarter Success: Chicken Wiggle Workshop coming to Switch with high definition artwork and a new score by Grant Kirkhope

Jason Clement

We found last year's Chicken Wiggle to be a fun and charming platformer, but unfortunately, the game was released on 3DS at a time when its audience had moved onto the Nintendo Switch, and it didn't perform as expected sales-wise.


Not one to give up so easily, Atooi's Jools Watsham launched a Kickstarter on March 6 to bring an HD version of the game -- renamed Chicken Wiggle Workshop -- to the Nintendo Switch.


The good news is that the Kickstarter crossed the threshold with success, closing after meeting its funding goal and the first stretch goal. Not only does this mean that the Switch version of the game will go into production and get a visual upgrade with redone HD art, it also means that Grant Kirkhope -- legendary video game composer who scored Banjo Kazooie, Donkey Kong 64, and more -- will be contributing an all-new orchestral soundtrack to the game.


Of course, the level creation and sharing aspect will also be present in this new version, as will be the function to switch back and forth between retro visuals (of the 3DS version) and the newer, HD art.


According to its Kickstarter, Atooi is aiming to have Chicken Wiggle Workshop available on Nintendo Switch by December 2018.

I'm glad this was funded even though I wasn't super thrilled with the idea of running crowdfunding to port a game (even if it is an enhanced port). Not that I don't understand why they did it, but it still rubbed me the wrong way. Now I don't really have to care about that and I can just wait for the game to come out and see what I missed by not buying it on 3DS. ^_^
