Wow, looking at the stretch goals they didn't meet makes me a bit sad. Some of that would've been amazing.

Agreed... Pretty much the best of the stuff wasn't reached... Full Voiceacting was the biggest one for me, though the Animated Cutscenes would have been delightful. Risky's extra chapter would have been ok too, though I got what I wanted in relation to her.

It hasn't been completely updated. They did unlock Hero Modes.

We basically missed two bonus chapters and some shinies, but got four more characters, three outfits with unique moves, and two other bonus chapters.

I'd say we already have all of the interesting stuff.
I never got my avatars.
Still holding my breath for the other Marl Kingdom games.

Voice acting would've been nice.

Oh yes, it's not to say that we missed out on the majority of things. It was a pretty spectacular run, actually.

There's... multiple sites showing the Kickstarter results... I'm not sure which one is the most up-to-date.

It's pretty funny/sad that the Wiki for the series is more up-to-date than the actual Kickstarter and official pages...

I'm wondering if it's because there's a limit to how far out past the completion of a campaign you can keep updating the Kickstarter page for it.

The actual Kickstarter stops once its run is complete, but there was a Paypal page they were using while they kept accepting Paypal donations. Once they shut that down near the end of last year, the updating stopped at a pretty accurate amount.

And it's been just sort of... floating there... ever since. The latest news was that the design of Shantae's Crab form for underwater exploration has been established. I guess they're dragging this out in order to make sure it's at absolute top-quality before release. I should hope so, anyway.

I'm not sure how what they're doing would be considered "dragging it out." They're trying to develop a quality game on multiple consoles and didn't even know if they'd have the money to be able to do it when they started the KS in the first place. Rome wasn't built in a day and all that, you know? :P

Sure, sure. I've just been sort of waiting for this since the BEGINNING of last year.

I'm in no hurry, and I appreciate the necessity of the wait. ;)

Latest update reveals one of the Backer-created new monsters for the game: SlimeGal. Looks like they're gonna stick with largely classic monster girl designs here.

I'd like to see Shantae try to hair-whip this enemy. Have you SEEN what bubblegum does to long hair? :lol:

I'm guessing that this doesn't automatically mean that a release within this year should be expected, hopefully i'm wrong. I actually forgot about this game until now.

They've begun to release the Backer Beta thing on Steam. That tells me this game is still a long ways off. I'm starting to think Wayforward has taken Blizzard's Playbook and run with it. The game was originally supposed to be released TWO OCTOBERS ago. They should have just said "It'll be released when it's ready"...

The Kickstarter only ended two Octobers ago. In no world would it have been ready to release at that time and I can't imagine they or anyone else thought it would.

Do you mean Pirate's Curse? That's been out for a while if so.
