Backer Enemy #3 Revealed!
Happy Monday, Backers!
We’ve got an exciting update for you today, which includes our vote results, and backer build info! But before we go there, let’s take a look at a brand new foe, guaranteed to make you reconsider your life choices!
Check out this new enemy from Backer Ronald! Its official name is Cyclops Omicron Aquatis, but you can call it Omicron for short. These pesky enemies can be found on land or under the sea. The mischievous little starfish monsters will stick to any hero that wanders too close, limiting their movement until shaken loose! Speed Runners, beware and be aware! Thanks to Backer Ronald for this sticky new addition to the Shantae universe! We look forward to slaughtering Omicrons by the dozens.
Backer Build This Week!
We’re almost done updating the Backer Build! If you’re a part of that reward tier, you’ll be able to enjoy another sample of the game, with new tunes, enemies, and a brand new environment! If you got the E3 Backer Build a few months back, the same demo will automatically update via Steam (unless you’ve disabled auto-updates, in which case you’ll need to check your Steam preferences). If you never received the E3 Backer Build and are going to get the game for the first time, please see the instructions in Update #71. Enjoy the game!
The votes have been tallied, and we have a winner! You collectively chose the headset and sporty looking outfit shown here! Nice job! When Rottytops and friends go undercover to unmask the magic carpet thief, you’ll see Rottytops in this outfit during the cinematic! It was a close call -- so if for some reason outfit 4D is unable to perform its duties due to illness or injury, outfit 4C will take its place.
Have you heard of Indivisible? The new game from our friends over at Lab Zero and 505 Games.
Indivisible is inspired by classics like Valkyrie Profile and Super Metroid, but with the unique character, world, and gameplay depth Lab Zero is known for, and will feature a stunning soundtrack by legendary Japanese game music composer, Hiroki Kikuta.

See you next update!!
