We sincerely hope that Rock Band developer Harmonix is considering remixing B*Witched’s classic Rollercoaster for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 exclusive Amplitude HD, because the title’s gone through a few emotional corkscrews over the past couple of weeks. Alas, after looking dead and buried around two days ago, the title has managed to raise an impressive $400,000 in approximately 48 hours – enough to put it past its $775,000 target.
In fact, at the time of typing – with still 11 hours to go – the title has attained $809,000. The developer’s added a token stretch goal for online multiplayer, but it seems unlikely that it will hit the $1,125,000 required to make that a reality. Still, as big fans of the original game, we’re just happy to see the pseudo reboot get made. A lot of the success can be attributed to Insomniac Games’ pledge of $7,500, which put the release back in the spotlight.
