Whilst we may be a little sick of hearing the term Kickstarter, we can't really complain given the wealth of retro themed projects that are suddenly surfacing. The latest addition to the fundraising craze is a much needed sequel to the 1993 shareware DOS title known as Jetpack.
Jetpack was one of the many shareware titles which did the rounds in the early nineties - along with the likes of Commander Keen and Monster Bash - which most of us will have enjoyed at some point in our early gaming lives. The frantic take on Lode Runner and Boulderdash with a rocket propelled addition was strangely addicting and easily one of the best games available on DOS at the time.
Adam Pedersen, the founder of Adept Software and creator of Jetpack, is pleased to finally have a voice via Kickstarter and hopes to prove a point. Despite Jetpack being a big hit two decades ago, many publishers have said that there is no market for a sequel to the game. Adam hopes to not only raise enough money to cover further development costs, but prove publishers wrong with yet another worthy neo-retro release.

Should you be interested in helping out with the project, be sure to head on over to the Kickstarter page and make a contribution. Should you need convincing though, you'll be pleased to know that the original Jetpack is considered freeware now and can be downloaded for free from the Adept Software website.
