Indie developer ManaVoid Entertainment is back again with a new project titled Steamboat Billy: The Curse of Leviathan, where its main visual draw stems from classic Disney cartoons with the gameplay consisting of Pokemon-esque battles with capturing and the sailing adventure of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker in 2D style. The game is planned over the next year with a PC release, as well as consoles including the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
With 27 days left to go in the Kickstarter campaign, they’ve managed to already hit over $17,000 in 3 days of their $50,685 pledge.

Most succinctly described as The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker meets Pokémon, Steamboat Billy is a singleplayer adventure-RPG set in a classic Disney-like universe in which you must defeat and capture strange monsters while sailing the dark seas, in order to rebuild and bring back color to the world you once knew!
Once every millennia, the Great Leviathan emerges from the ocean’s depths to curse the world into monochromatic chaos! By exploring land and sea, collecting treasures and creatures along the way, you will need to combat the Leviathan’s cronies and rebuild the city of Star Harbor in order to restore the color to the world!
As fans of classic American cartoons of the 1930s, Steamboat Billy’s art style is very much an homage to that era, albeit with a few differences. We’ve added some anime flair to our characters and we aren’t afraid of mixing in modern animation techniques and visual effects.
