Vote for your favorite Dance Transformation!
In each Chapter of the game, Shantae will defeat a boss and gain a Dance Transformation. When she dances, she can change into a new creature form with new abilities! Past games have seen Shantae changing into a wall-climbing Monkey, a boulder bashing Elephant, a web-climbing Spider, a deep-diving Mermaid, and even a Tinkerbat or Harpy. We have a few transformations planned that are vital to Shantae’s mobility. But the others will be decided by YOU, the VOTERS!
If you’ve pledged at the Contributor Reward Tier (and above), you’ll be voting for your favorites, and the winners will be put into the game. The number of total transformations is not set at this time, since our number of Chapters isn’t locked down yet (the more Chapter-based Stretch Goals we meet, the more transformations there will be).
The new Custom Dance design allows us to be more flexible with the number of dances and transformations than before, so a “minor transformation” could simply be used to rocket into the sky, torch a thorn patch, or emit a screeching sound. Not all transformations need to have full mobility either (like say, a Tree-like Dryad that drops life-restoring fruit). We have tons of ideas and we bet you do too! Let’s earn that CONTRIBUTOR CREDIT and make this game burst with fresh ideas! Voting will occur during the game’s development, but ANYONE can throw ideas at us on the “Comments” message board.
