All the news that's fit to post!
Hello all of our wonderful Shantaerians and Tinkerbackers! We thought we would give you guys and girls an update on all of the goings on here at WayForward since the Kickstarter campaign ended last week:
The Crunchyroll Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Fan Art contest has come to a close! The winners were selected and we'll be sending their prizes out as soon as we can. Here's the Grand Prize winning entry from user 1127066:
There were tons of amazing entries so if you haven't already, stop in and check them out!
Our PayPal Store now updates the PayPal Total automatically! It currently does this every 15 minutes so you can keep your stretch goal nail-biting to 15 minute intervals ;)
By popular request we have added an option to our PayPal Store that allows backers to manually enter a pledge amount. This option is not attached to any particular reward, so we recommend using it only for upping your existing pledge. Or simply for donating out of the kindness of your heart ^_^
We should receive the Kickstarter funds in the next few weeks. At that time we will begin contacting all KS and PayPal backers to discern who has made multiple pledges and if/how they would like them consolidated. That will let us know how many of the limited quantity reward tiers ($350 and above) are left and we will then add the remaining stock to the PayPal store. So if you are still interested in getting your art (or face) in the game, don't worry we haven't forgotten you ^_^
We are in the process of redesigning our entire website O.O When it is finished it will include a Kickstarter Forum that will be a dedicated location for all future updates and also where we conduct our voting and any other fun Half-Genie hijinks :P And best of all, this allows our amazing community an area to continue chatting away about all things Shantae!
And don't think for a second we've stopped the hype train now that the campaign is over. We have been hard at work on interviews and promotional materials to make sure everyone hears about Shantae: Half-Genie Hero. We want to hit those Stretch Goals!
