How much did I put in?
$111.Yup.I love Shantae that much,I pulled out the emergency money and did some work to pay for her,and damnit,its the most special $111 I've spent.
There are a load of award's I'm extremely hyped to get for the game,the beta access,the ability to vote on things to shape the game,and most of all the Music CD,Collectors Coin and Groovy Shantae T-Shirt,I love T-shirts with niche gaming series like Shantae on them(which is mostly why I put in $110),and of course getting physical things of anything WayForward is great.
But the best thing is the honor of getting my name in the credits..WayForward putting my name in the game of my Half-Genie Hero?That..is a true honor,a dream come true,and reminds me of why I love WayForward:They listen to their fans.I mean,just tweet to them on twitter,they listen to you :U
For the info,I think I was the 12,506th backer....and I am sure I was the 200th Groovy Shantae T-Shirt tier backer.
Now,Maybe I jumped too far here.Some people actually don't know who Shantae is...I'll just copy/paste WayForwards text here:
Shantae began her journey in 1994 and saw her first game released in 2002. For over a decade Shantae games have won awards and acclaim the world over:
Shantae (Game Boy Color): Risky Boots transforms a simple steam-engine into a magical monstrosity! Can Shantae save Sequin Land from disaster? The game that started it all. Reviewers named Shantae the Game Boys swan song. It earned a perfect score from Nintendo Power and was deemed a Best Nintendo Game of All Time in their final issue. Distributed by Capcom in 2002, Shantae has become one of the rarest and most sought after collectables out there. It was recently re-released on the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console.
Shantae: Riskys Revenge (DSiWare): Risky returns with a magic lamp capable of stealing Shantae's "genie half". Is this beginning of the end for Shantae and her friends? The sequel was a long time coming -- but was worth the wait, earning the highest Metacritic rating across all handhelds in 2010. The game was ported to iOS the following year. It was named Game of the Week by Apple and has since been featured numerous times as an "essential" platformer in the App Store.
Shantae and the Pirates Curse (coming soon to Nintendo 3DS eShop): When a curse falls upon Sequin Land, Risky Boots and Shantae must join forces to battle unimaginable evil. The third act in the pixel series, this highly anticipated game is nearing the end of development, and will be available for download this Winter.
Want some info on it?To start,its the first home console Shantae game,set to be available on 360,PS3,Wii U,PSVita,Steam,PS4 and Xbox One.It will have an entire campaign staring Risky Boots,and also have a huge amount of transformations,new and old.
Oh,and Megaman/Mighty No 9 dev team Inti Creates is helping work on it.WHAAAAAAAAAT?!
Now,there are less then 2 days left in the Kickstarter.If you have any interest in Shantae,and a credit card(although I got by without having one),you should totally pull and put in some cash on it.If you can't make it in time,fear not,for Paypal will be open for months,and you can get the backer exclusive (at $15 or more) Blue outfit for the game.
The best part of Paypal is that the cash earned there counts toward strech goals...and I dream of the day when I can hear a fully voiced Shantae.
Oh yes,and if you have one of those I-things,you should download Shantae Risky's Revenge on it,like,right now.Because its free.
