Yacht Club Games announced a new project, Mina the Hollower, during Yacht Club Games Presents today on G4’s Xplay Live.

It’s a top-down action-adventure game inspired by Game Boy Color titles like The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening DX. It also takes aesthetic cues from classic monster stories like Dracula and Frankenstein.

The title has a Kickstarter, although Yacht Club notes that it is funding the majority of the game itself. The indie studio used Kickstarter for its first game, Shovel Knight, which became a big hit. The Kickstarter has a goal of $311,503.

“Compared to our original Kickstarter, we are not in a hopeless situation! We fund the majority of Mina the Hollower development internally,” the Kickstarter page explains. “Our main reason for launching a Kickstarter this time is to build a whole new universe in the same way we did with our first game, Shovel Knight, with our community involved in creating something special with us! Every contributor who joins development will help create a more robust game. Together, we will innovate!
