It ain't easy being a single-pixel hero in a 32-bit world, but that hasn't stopped red block Pip or his creators at TicToc Games from pushing forward to secure the funding needed to bring his adventures to life. Thankfully, their efforts have not been in vain: the Adventures of Pip Kickstarter campaign concluded this weekend, bringing in almost $66,000 from more than 2,500 backers.

The amount of money raised for Adventures of Pip means that the game, which is about a single-pixel hero who can transform into more complex versions of himself by collecting enemies' pixels, will be released on Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PS4 in addition to the originally-planned PC, Mac and Wii U. There's no firm release window for the game, but the Kickstarter page estimates backer rewards, including copies of the game, for January 2015.

This is actually the second time Pip has appeared on Kickstarter; we first saw him and his shapeshifting abilities back in May, when TicToc was asking for $90,000. That campaign failed, with just more than $35,000 raised.
