Update 3: Stretch Goals Are Here! New Game+, Challenge Dungeons, and... *drumroll*... the PS4 Port!

33 likes
It's finally here!

Apologies for the delay while we worked out the final kinks, but it’s finally begun! Let’s go through our first set of stretch goals one by one:

$75,000 - New Game+ 

Our first stretch goal is for that good old fashioned RPG staple, New Game+. Heart Forth, Alicia's New Game+ mode will put players in a drastically more difficult world where many of the games variables will be altered to make the playthrough more challenging, including stronger enemies, more lethal environments, unique New Game+ foes, and plenty of other hidden surprises. You won’t be helpless, though. Players will start with all of the money from their previous run, three New Game+ exclusive accessories, increased stats compared to a normal playthrough, and more. We might even toss in some super special secrets only available to players on their New Game+ run :)

$90,000 - Challenge Dungeons 

We’ll carefully hide three secret challenge dungeons in different spots of the game world, each one creating a unique sequence of challenging rooms filled with swarms of enemies for Alicia to conquer on her way downward (or upward!) to retrieve a shiny new reward. Think “Deep Dungeon” from Final Fantasy Tactics or “Savage Labyrinth” from Wind Waker and you’re on the right track. Of course, we’re always open to backer input, so if you have an idea you think would work great in a challenge dungeon, let us know!

$110,000 - The PS4 Port 

The big one. We know that tons of you have been dying for any news on ports, so we’re incredibly excited to confirm that Heart Forth, Alicia is coming to the PS4! We’re working on implementing the PS4 port into our tiers, so keep an eye out for more news soon. 

If we manage to break through this set of stretch goals, we’ll definitely do our best to be much more punctual with our next set. What will they be? You’ll have to wait and see :)

      I too would like to see linux/mac ports. I didn't actually check that first, which is my bad.

    2. Creator Michael David Anderson on April 18, 2014

      If we reach the PS4 port stretch goal, will that version be optional for backers who are guaranteed a copy of the game?

    3. Creator Je.Saist on April 18, 2014

      Neo: First update mentions Linux specifically.

    4. Creator Neo on April 18, 2014

      But where is Linux? I want to see this glorious diamond on Linux. :)

    5. Creator Alessandro Maniscalco on April 18, 2014

      It's nice to see PS4 as a stretch goal, but frankly this game is perfect for portable gaming. I really want to see this on the Vita or 3DS!

    6. Creator Matthew Badham on April 18, 2014

      Awesome, glad to see this is coming to the PS4. Any chance of other consoles in the future or is that all? I don't really mind because I was going to get it on PC anyway, but I would like to convince my friends to buy it. Some of my friends have a PS4 at least, so they'll be able to pick this up now!

    7. Creator Je.Saist on April 18, 2014

      Todor: Check Update One. The Linux version is mentioned there.

    8. Creator Tam on April 18, 2014

      This looks like an excellent title and I'm excited to back it. Buttttttttttt I really want this on my Wii U! Please consider adding a port as a stretch goal.

    9. Creator Nicholas J. Ambrose on April 18, 2014

      Super excited for this! Just curious what the future is if funding is secured beyond the $110k mark. Any hope for an Xbox One release?

    10. Creator Todor Imreorov on April 18, 2014

      no linux port. I am disappointed :(

      Look you are using multimedia fusion. Just export the game as html5. It will run on both mac and linux.
      its 60$ that exporter.

    11. Creator The Wizard of the Glen on April 18, 2014

      i was really hoping for a vita port before anything else. this looks like it would work best as a handheld game.

    12. Creator Richard Stuckey on April 18, 2014

      Ps4 port = remote play!! Yes please.

    13. Creator Nubenai on April 18, 2014

      This is good news indeed! However I agree with the others, this game would fit gloriously on the 3DS. Please consider it if there's even the slightest chance you could pull it off! I'd buy it a second time in a heartbeat.

    14. Creator Darryl Reyes on April 18, 2014

      What Timo Honold and M. Bouwman said. Plus, the DS consoles have had the Castlevania series for a VERY long time since Dawn of Sorrow way back in '05 and has worked very well with the second screen as a map or menu screen, a feature that would work wonderfully well on the Wii U as well.

    15. Creator Chris Skuller on April 18, 2014

      I love the idea of challenge dungeons, but it would be cool if you could put some narrative reason for them being there.

    16. Creator Timo Honold on April 18, 2014

      Don't have a PS4.
      Got a 3DS, Wii U and a Vita...

    17. Creator M. Bouwman on April 18, 2014

      This is a nice start, too bad I don't own a PS4. Maybe by the time this is released, but I'd prefer a 3ds or Wii U version. Is porting difficult? (Engine?)

    18. Creator Domenico Avella on April 18, 2014

      Hi Team , any release for Windows phone and Windows 8 store ?

    19. Creator Protoman Red Bomber on April 18, 2014

      I hope that we can get a "play as Höstra mode" (or another extra character) stretch goal on the next set. : )

    20. Creator JohnC on April 18, 2014

      Thanks for the PS4 Version. I was hoping for that one.
      Will it be available to European backers through the European PSN?

    21. Creator Sir Jordi on April 18, 2014

      I'm in for the Wii U port!

      go go Wii U!

    22. Creator kyle peplow on April 18, 2014

      Happy you went with PS4 first. It's been much less of a headache than PS3 or XB1 so far. Don't suppose us earlier bird pledgers can get a PS4 version instead?

    23. Creator Andrew-Kent Snyder on April 17, 2014

      I think I have seen a couple of games that can be on PS4 & PS3 on the PSN. Can you also include a PS3 when you launch, or does it require more resources than it is worth?

    24. Creator Fernando Ezquerro on April 17, 2014

      3DS version in the Stretch Goals!!!

    25. Creator Matt Green on April 17, 2014

      PS4 option for Early Bird backers please!!

    26. Creator Je.Saist on April 17, 2014

      Well, as somebody who already has backed without even checking to see if there was a Linux version on the way... I just assumed that there was one because Chucklefish was involved...

      The next platform I'd really like is support for WiiU.

    27. Creator Christopher Ryan Wilcox on April 17, 2014

      3DS PORT WOULD MAKE MY LIFE! PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE!

    28. Creator DeafTard on April 17, 2014

      Wii U Port! PS3 PORT! 3DS PORT! JUST ONE OF THESE PLEASE! Wii U! 3DS! PS3!

    29. Creator JusticeBolt on April 17, 2014

      I'm so happy about the stretch goals. I can't wait to play this on PS4.

    30. Creator Mark Goetz on April 17, 2014

      Put me down for wishing for a Mac port as well!

    31. Creator Michael Barnett on April 17, 2014

      Awe PS4 :( I had my fingers crossed for 3ds and or WiiU. Oh well, at least I can get PC.

    32. Creator dennis fuchs on April 17, 2014

      I hope you got a Wii U port in the cards. Can't cite Metroidvania influences and skip the NInty :P

    33. Creator Jeremiah Harris on April 17, 2014

      I would also like to request a port for Mac!

    34. Creator Michael Bradt on April 17, 2014

      Would love Vita with crossbuy option. Thanks!

    35. Creator Les on April 17, 2014

      I'm not a vita owner myself(yet) but crossbuy+crossplay between PS4+PSV would be a great idea.

    36. Creator Pitchingace88 - YouTube on April 17, 2014

      See if you can create an image to put at the top of the main page with the stretch goals and what they entail. This ensures on PC and Mobile people can view it. Backing so many projects I know which ones always help me to get interested and others as well... Especially post goal being reached

    37. Creator Jorge Fco. Suárez Basáñez on April 17, 2014

      Mac! Please bring it to Mac! ;)

    38. Creator More_Badass on April 17, 2014

      New Game + is right around the corner!

    39. Creator Manoko on April 17, 2014

      Please, PS Vita as well as PS4, make it cross-buy it would be awesome !

    40. Creator Thousandone (1001) on April 17, 2014

      How about alternate sprite that only exclusive to kickstarter backers?

      I guess stretch goals will be updated to main page later on right?

    41. Creator Drew Ressler on April 17, 2014

      Definitely needs to be crossbuy with Vita. This game is MADE for Vita!

    42. Creator Cody Marbach on April 17, 2014

      Yes! PS4 Port! Lets keep those pledges coming!

    43. Creator Pitchingace88 - YouTube on April 17, 2014

      Such great ideas! Congrats and I look forward to the achievement to help you create the best game possible :D
