PayPal is Ret-2-Go!


Hey Gang! Now that we're fully funded, as promised we are opening our shiny new PayPal store for everyone that hasn't been able to join in the fun yet!

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Paypal Store

It has all of the unlimited reward tiers ($5-$200, no $12 rewards are left) with both US and International shipping options.  Once the Kickstarter campaign ends we will add the remaining limited reward tiers ($350-$10,000) as well.

We are currently planning on keeping the PayPal store open for several months after the Kickstarter campaign ends and all PayPal pledges will count toward the STRETCH GOALS!  We'll update the main Kickstarter page with our PayPal total regularly so that everyone can see our continued progress ^_^

      @ WayForward: when the funding time period is still over, will the transaction automatically occur or will we have to manually donate our pledge?

      ...that post title made me do a spit take. XD

      @Robert: WayForward will be sending an update on the Kickstarter once the Paypal Store will be about to be "closed". Keeping your $1 pledge will allow you to get updates, and hopefully you'll have enough funds to use on Paypal for Platinum or higher ;). You can also follow me on Twitter (@EdEN_Zr) since I'll be sending out a tweet once the store is about to close.

      I can understand that sometimes life gets in the way of our hobbies, as the same thing happened to me around March or so.

      "This is awesome! Even if we don't meet the required money in time before the Kickstarter campaign ends, we will still be able to fund this project and get all those Stretch Goals!!! I was thinking on them as goners! I hope we can get them all!! Good luck WayForward! =)"

      My thoughts exactly. ^_^ I'm really hoping we make it to some of the bonus chapters.

    5. Robert Wicker on September 25, 2013

      @Antonio - awesome!!! Money should be better in another month or so. I"m going to drop down to $1 so I can keep getting updates and all. Before the Paypal closes, will you put up a "final pledge" thing?

    6. Antonio Garcia

      @Robert: Paypal will be up for AT LEAST 2 months.

    7. Robert Wicker on September 25, 2013

      So I had real life stuff happen this week (just dropped like $500 to get the well pump fixed at my place), so money will be tighter than expected some the end of this. I want to support it still. Can we get an estimate of when the Paypal will close? I want to still give you my money but it helps me out that I can put it off another few months.

      This is awesome! Even if we don't meet the required money in time before the Kickstarter campaign ends, we will still be able to fund this project and get all those Stretch Goals!!! I was thinking on them as goners! I hope we can get them all!! Good luck WayForward! =)

      Well, if any Paypal issues arise, just say the word and we'll go crashing their virtual gates until you get what's yours.

      Also, I'm glad you're continuing this campaign. I want the Nega-Shantae scenario so bad!

    10. Ernest James Barron on September 25, 2013

      That's awesome, I was hoping the dancer outfit was going to make it in this game too!

    11. Hylian Pirate on September 25, 2013

      I'm echoing the question about combining PayPal donations with Kickstarter pledges. Additionally, I can probably donate about $20 per week, but not a whole lot at once. Can I build upon my pledge? Or combine my little donations into one big one? I want that art book and all, but I can't scrape together $200 at one time.

    12. Mat on September 25, 2013

      tbh I really want to know if combining pledges with Paypal is possible, cause I really want to reach the $350 tier

    13. David on September 25, 2013

      Paypal is a terrible company that does terrible things to their customers. There should be some other alternative for this, not just paypal.

    14. Nick Cee (NY Gamer) on September 25, 2013

      This! I wonder if we can combine our Kickstarter Pledges with any Future Paypal Pledges. Christmas is an awfully jolly time of the year!

      @Salvador: The problem with Paypal will slowly go away, and the projects that have had the most trouble with Paypal are those at Indiegogo since over there Paypal is used for all pledges. WayForward is aware of it, and is taking the necessary measures to make sure that doesn't happen for Half-Genie Hero.

      @Wolfen: Good question. As it is set right now, the Paypal Store is only for pledging for the full amount for each tier. I'll talk to WayForward about what you ask and see if they can address it on an update.

      I'm glad to see that funding will continue after the kickstarter has ended and that we'll be able to see those donations affect the stretch goals, I really like ninja Shantae.

      You should be careful with PayPal, though. They've withheld funds from projects like these in the past and they might do it again. Here's an article GiantBomb did with interviews from those affected by the withheld funds.

    17. Queen Wolfen on September 25, 2013

      Will the amount I donated to the Kickstarter carry over into the PayPal pledges? After the Kickstarter concludes, do I need to donate an additional $55 via PayPal to get the Tinkerbat dance, or could I deduct the amount I already donated here?

    18. Paul Walker on September 25, 2013

      Cool, btw thanks for doing the 1337lounge cast it was fun seeing you all.

      YAY!!! Also, make sure the PayPal link is large and visible so that people can see it and follow it properly.

    20. Leonardo Jones on September 24, 2013

      @Wayforward Where does the expression "Ret-2-Go" come from? I imagine it means "ready to go", but I've never seen it used outside of the Shantae games

    21. Ryan List on September 24, 2013

      Rick: They mentioned that the main KS page will be updated to include any PayPal donation totals that come in.

      It's awesome to see the PayPal stuff will count towards the project. I don't know if we'll get all the stretch goals, but it can't hurt to try. :D

    22. Paradoxigent on September 24, 2013

      Will there be any to see the progress of the PayPal pledges?

    23. David Robertson on September 24, 2013

      Awesome!! I'm already anticipating what the $1.1 million and $1.3 million stretch goals are going to be, although I do have a sneaky suspicion of what they might be.

      Yay! Money's been getting tight, so I was hoping for this! That I wasn't aware it was promised shows how out of the loop I am, though...

      I've added the Paypal link to my feature on Shantae: Half-Genie Hero. Share the link to educate people on what the game is all about, as well as to present them with the option of using Paypal or the Kickstarter page :)

      I was sweating bullets thinking that Risky mode might no make the dead line.
      Thank You Paypal.
      You Too Wayfoward.

    27. Thomas Sausner Jr. on September 24, 2013

      will more stretches come?

    28. Michael 'Lêmure' Wilson on September 24, 2013

      AWESOME! I really want those stretch goals! D:<

      David Thompson on September 24, 2013

      Hopeful this will help get past more stretch goals.

    30. Jake Pangares on September 24, 2013

      Awesome! Hopin' to see more Paypal users back this! (Oh and where'd the 'Re-2-Go!' thing come from? I've seen it in so many Wayforward games but never found who, what, when, where and why)

    31. Thomas "SkyeWelse" Liebert on September 24, 2013

      Alright! This was something I was wondering about. Thanks for answering this. : )

      Good on you WayForward for the full disclosure now. Let's make those stretch goals happen everyone!

    33. FinalCataclsym on September 24, 2013

      And WayForward delivers another touchdown! The crowd goes wild!

    34. Mark John Vignone Jr. on September 24, 2013

      Right then, we'd best make our rounds to the gaming media to update that Paypal is go!

    35. Garrett Austin Boyle on September 24, 2013

      This makes me very happy.

    36. Mirby on September 24, 2013

      Whew. And here I was afraid that after this Kickstarter ended the stretch goals would be out of reach... permanently. Thanks for that reassurance. :3

    37. Theodore Trevor on September 24, 2013

      This makes me feel better. I was worried there wouldn't be enough time to reach all of the Stretch Goals.
