Hello Shantaebackers and Tinkertarians...Backertarians and Shantinkers...Shantaerians and Tinkerbackers!

Today we’ve got something new for you…a first of its kind, one-and-only exclusive never-before-seen look at the inside of Shantae’s lighthouse!

For 15 years Shantae has kept her home shut tight and locked up but today we’re actually going to open the door and see what’s in there! We’ve had sketches since back in the Game Boy Color days, but Half-Genie Hero will be the first time you can explore Shantae’s home in person!

Now that you've had a peak inside Shantae's home, how about a peak inside our new(ish) home (on the internet)?  For those keeping track, we are still hard at work on our website redesign.  We're beta testing it right now and hope to have it public very soon!  For anyone who hasn't heard, the new site will include forums, backer only areas, and will allow our backers to update their rewards and track their selections (platform, t-shirt size, etc.).  

Once the site is live and everyone has had a chance to familiarize themselves with the layout and functionality we will also begin working directly with our backers on some of the rewards.  This includes the Your Art in Game, Enemy Designer, and Your Face in Game rewards as well as Original Sketches by Matt Bozon!  So get excited!!

      Very nice artwork.
      But it is too small, even for a genie.
      Maybe you could extend the towers width.

      And I guess Shantae would like to cellar, too. ;)
      But besides that, the whole setting is really nice.

      Wait, that's a lighthouse? Where's the giant torchlight?

    3. Creator Jasae Bushae on March 8, 2014

      Huh, fewer throwpillows than I expected

    4. Creator Sean Burton on March 8, 2014

      oh good, a site other than kickstarter.

    5. Creator Nicolas Martinez on March 8, 2014

      The bell-shape design's very appealing. The rope between the top and bottom floors is really cool too.

    6. Creator Fimvisible on March 8, 2014

      *gets excited*

    7. Creator Sir Jordi on March 8, 2014

      lovely artwork
      go go go!

    8. Creator Joni William Ahonen on March 8, 2014

      Sweet.
      Any word on when the forum will be online?

    9. Creator Tekaramity on March 7, 2014

      Holy cow, news about the WayForum! =D Thanks muchly! Looks rightly done well, so far. That excites me even more than the peek inside Shantae's humble abode. ^.^ Gotta get psyched for the Shantae goodness on the horizon~

    10. Creator Jeremie Lariviere on March 7, 2014

      Thanks for the update!

    11. Creator Garrett Austin Boyle on March 7, 2014

      Forums?! This excites me. I have not been active in any communities lately.

    12. Creator Collin Gaddie on March 7, 2014

      @Joe Haley: So...right in way of the front door...? XD

    13. Creator Joe Haley on March 7, 2014

      Collin, of course there's a bathroom. See that conspicuous gap in the bricks of the ground floor?

    14. Creator Gary Stewart on March 7, 2014

      Radical crib! So Shantae's a hammock sleeper, eh? Didn't expect that.

      And I'm guessing that big bell above the door is the doorbell?

      And I can't wait to see what the backers have in store for their ideas/art in the game.

    15. Creator Dan Murphy on March 7, 2014

      I know this is a bit of a stretch since its about a different game but I was hoping for a comment on Shante 3DS which has been delayed again. (Initialy Q4, then Q1, now Q2)

    16. Creator Jake Pangares on March 7, 2014

      Haha! Awesome! I was literally tingling with excitement when the full picture of the house showed up!! That my friends, is childhood and it's completion! Finally! The mystery is solved! Can't wait to see the new site guys! Keep it up! ;)

    17. Creator DeafTard on March 7, 2014

      Congrats on Update#50!!! I have never seen a Kickstarter project with 50 update posts! This is a great thing since Wayforward has been the most vocal and most up to date project I have ever backed on Kickstarter! I hope more KS projects take note of Wayforward!

    18. Creator Jamie 'Mitch McKidd' Mitchell on March 7, 2014

      I think that's great to see what Shantae does when she's not in action or when she's chilling out at home. =)

    19. Creator Stuckov the Admirable on March 7, 2014

      @Final
      I think we should all be asking, "what is the purpose of the towel?" Why is she taking special care of that towel in particular?

    20. Creator FinalCataclsym on March 7, 2014

      If you notice, you can see her pajama bottoms and bikini top hanging from the rope across the ceiling.

    21. Creator Stuckov the Admirable on March 7, 2014

      Shantae's house looks very cozy with a very nice view of the ocean but I would find it hard to sleep in a hammock for several years and a lack of bathroom is highly inconvenient for visitors or the occupier.

    22. Creator Guilherme Reis Bonfim on March 7, 2014

      Good stuff, guys! Thanks for the update!

    23. Creator Olli Johannes Suvinen on March 7, 2014

      She's gotta be in quite fit condition to climb that robe every day. :D
      Have to admit, I wouldn't mind if I had that kind of a house for vacation. It looks rather atmospheric and relaxing.

    24. Creator Collin Gaddie on March 7, 2014

      I always pictured Shantae owning a hammock. As neat as the place is, the lack of a bathroom seems rather inconvenient.

    25. Creator Francisco Jose Cano Perez on March 7, 2014

      when's Pirate's Curse?

    26. Creator Skylore Miller on March 7, 2014

      Aw! Shantae's house is as cute as I always pictured it to be!

    27. Creator Josh Wise on March 7, 2014

      That is almost as how I imagined Shantae's house would look like.
