New Backer-Only Content: Hyper Light Drifter!
We have only 68 hours (or so) left in our Shantae: Half-Genie Hero campaign… but we've still got a few surprises in store. Today we’re pleased to announce that we've teamed-up with Heart Machine, developer of Hyper Light Drifter!
Check out their Kickstarter page to see a brand new quest added to Hyper Light Drifter featuring a cameo by Shantae’s arch nemesis Risky Boots! What?! Not only that...for our Backers, we’ve got an an Exclusive Risky Boots Quest featuring "Drifter". Any pledge of $12 or higher (any amount that gets the game) will automatically earn you a download code for this Backer Exclusive side quest in Half-Genie Hero!
Details: Risky Boots is searching high and low for the magical artifacts she needs to enter the Genie Realm and destroy the do-gooding Shantae once and for all. She soon crosses paths with a wandering stranger named “Drifter”. By fulfilling Drifter’s Quest, Risky Boots will gain the Drifter Blade, a brand new weapon with special properties designed in collaboration with Alexander Preston, creator of Hyper Light Drifter!
Just like the Blue Shantae Costume, this is backer exclusive. And if you’ve already pledged at $12 or above, this content is FREE! You’ll be given one download code for every game you pre-order.
The Kickstarter community just keeps getting better! Check out Hyper Light Drifter right here and consider contributing to this exciting new project: (link)
