One way or another, this ends TONIGHT!

I am very touched by all of your kind support, including some of the very encouraging personal messages I've received. I take it all in, I absorb your good will into my body and become stronger by the minute. Soon, I'll be invincible.

Seriously, though, I've noticed a certain amount of chatter and lamenting statements about the Wii U stretch goal. Keep in mind that this is just a stretch goal, there is life beyond it, and indeed there's so much to be positive about. I fully believe in this game. Like, utterly and completely. I similarly believe, and have reason to believe, that there will be many opportunities and opening doors down the road for this game as it comes closer to release and after it comes out. 

More to the point: If this stretch goal is not met, I still think a Wii U version is something that'll happen, if not at release, then a bit later. Is this a promise? No. Should you base your backing decisions on this? No, you probably shouldn't. But if this is something that's important to you, then hope remains alive no matter what happens tonight.

      Sadly I found out about it this week, and it ended one day before I got payed...I still threw in a dollar, because it looks awesome.

      I like Peter Jacob's idea... I would gladly give more if it means it could get on WiiU (Can't play on my computer, but I really like the idea of that game, so I backed it anyway)

      Might be possible to keep a Paypal option open post-Kickstarter; seen several KS's do that for X time afterwards and push the goal further on the next stretch goal.

      Seriously, guys.. you're mostly GAFfers here. WiiU would have been awesome, but we'll all get to play it anyway. :P

      I just want to say, regardless of what happens, I'm going to be extremely happy to play a game (on any platform) that has the amount of passion and heart you've shown us. You rock!

    6. Berto_Terga on

      I backed this regardless of platform, it just looks so damn good. With that being said....a WiiU version would be stellar, I'd easily pay a second time for it.

      Would rather have this on 3DS, but WiiU is great too! Although, it would be hard to get this game on there, regardless of funding, considering they have lots of regulations and rules.

      Been following this Kickstarter since day one; can't wait for this to come out!

    8. Norm Huizenga on

      Ok. I just upped my pledge to the soundtrack tier rather than the early bird (so I guess that opens that one up for one more.. Reading how a Wii U key would work, I guess you could just have anyone that wants one Paypal/amazon the money to you after it's done. Only $10K more to go!

      I just want to say: congratulations, man. :)

      And I won't give you any advice; just make the game of your dreams and let me play it eventually!

      Been a backer for a bit and just wanna say I am supporting you all the way.

      I backed this game for PC, and I think it's amazing you tripled your original goal. This update made me do a double take (did I miss a zero somewhere?), but no it's funded, and this sounds like an apology.
      Let's be HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY :)

      Backed for Wii U! Willing to wait! If it doesn't happen that'll be ok too! Will just play it on something else!

      Great looking game, love the megaman style pea shooter and the damage numbers, please keep the damage numbers! The dark feel of it is great. I would love to see some neat hidden upgrades and hyper beam style specials at the end of the game!

    14. Maxime Lemieux on

      I backed this game because it looks gorgeous and fantastic ! But, like you said in your update, this is a game I would rather play on my wii u than on my computer (because my computer sucks and I like the game pad...) ! Congrats man ! I'm looking forward for a second buy on the wiiu (I doubt a bit we'll get to the stretch goal in time...) ;)

      @derrick the plan would be to allow people to choose a steam version or a wii u version, and if there's time left, offer a new bundle tier where they can get both for a discounted price. This bundle would help us offset the cost of providing wii u keys (we can get steam keys at no cost to us, but wii u keys will cost us about $4.50 apiece). So if we're going to hit the goal it'd certainly be nice to hit it with some time to spare.

      You had me at Super Metroid and Dark Souls. :) Looking forward to playing the game no matter what platform it ends up on.

      If you hit the WiiU goal last miniute there won't be a lot of time to implement new tiers. Any idea on how this will work? Will there be a donation threshold to automatically qualify for one?

    18. Norm Huizenga on

      It may end tonight.... But tonight is just the beginning! I've kick started a lot of games, the first being Validis Story (not sure on the spelling) and since then non have got me as excited except for Ghost Song. It's no coincidence they are both of the metroidvania variety. I love that type. What you've proposed and shown is phenomenal... And it's not even the final form!!!! Wii U or not you had my money day 1. Can't wait. Congratulations on a successful Kickstarter! SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!!!

    19. Chris Bustamante on

      Congrats on the success!

      Now, if we can someday get a 3DS version, I'll be as happy as can be. Heck, if we can get any kkind of console versions, I'd be happy! From what I've seen, it deserves to be on as many consoles as possible.

    20. Robert Stack on

      Thanks for the update. I hope Nintendo will see the support you are getting for this game and will contact you to get it on the Wii U. Good luck and I look forward to the release regardless of what platform it is on. Cheers!
