Shantae’s First HD Adventure!
Today is the day! Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, the game to which you have GRANTED LIFE ITSELF is now LIVE all over the world!! It’s SO AWESOME to see so many people enjoying the game that we made together! Reviews are rolling in, fans are going nuts... people are having a great time with Shantae’s newest outing!
Remember, if you get a chance - please take a moment today and throughout the week to post or retweet videos, fan art, reviews... or make use of the Fan Kit. Anything you can do to help promote the game is greatly appreciated!
Holiday Break is here!
What’s next? Well, to put it bluntly, we’re exhausted. We need to take a break for the holidays. Starting Friday Dec 23rd, we’re going to go dark for a couple of weeks. We will still be working through Backer Support emails, with our only real focus being to get any missing Backer codes sorted out.
If bugs are reported (and with this many platforms and territories, it’s highly probable), they’ll be sent to the development team so that we can get them into our first Game Update.
Speaking of which, we’ve been hard at work on our first Game Update, which will focus on general bug fixes. We’ve been watching Twitch streams and sifting through bug reports, and have fixed many of the problems which were found by Backers and Early Access Backers. Once we’re back from break, we’ll go through bug reports again, make the necessary repairs, and will give you an update... on the Update.
Status of Stretch Goals, DLC, and Rewards!
We’re already working on the DLC, and will have more information for you after break! In case you’re curious, BLUE SHANTAE, TINKERBAT FORM, and various Backer Exclusive features are not included in the launch version. We’ll deliver those separately later!
The chapter-based stretch goals (Sequence of Unfortunate Events” and “Fire and Forget”) are included in the release version of the game!
We’re already working on our digital and physical rewards as well! We’ll have an update for you once we’re into the new year. And remember that as Backers, you won’t have to pay for any DLC (even future paid DLC)! So when you see us announce new content in 2017, remember... it’s coming to you at no cost!
Happy Holidays to all of you!
See you next update!
