Howdy folks!

We realize we’ve been hitting you up with a hefty number of updates recently… but here’s one more you’ll need to hear about! Over the weekend we reached ANOTHER STRETCH GOAL

We had a pretty good feeling this might happen, but we honestly had no idea it would reach the top so quickly. That’s $900,000.00 you’ve collectively pledged to not only make the game, but to keep making it even more amazing! When we hit the initial goal of $400K, we were out of our minds with excitement. Today we’ve more than doubled that goal! And other than just feeling totally swank about it, the even better news is that we’ve got 3 more characters to add to the adventure:

This means that Sky, Bolo, and Rottytops, friends of Shantae who have appeared in every title, will be fully playable heroes. Each character will embark on the adventure for reasons all their own, and will play differently from one another. Including Risky Boots there are now 5 storylines to play, and a total of 10 modes. The replay value of Half-Genie Hero just went through the roof!!

With this being the FIFTH successful Stretch Goal, it’s practically tradition to inform you of the next one on the horizon.

Should we reach the lofty goal of ONE MILLION dollars (phew!) we’ll be able to add another chapter to the game. Let’s talk briefly about that…A DISH SERVED COLD: Spoiler Alert! 

The storyline for Shantae: Risky’s Revenge takes a bit of a twist at the end… Some wayward wishing occurs…we don’t want to spoil it for you. But if there’s someone Shantae would rather not have to face again, it’s NEGA-SHANTAE. As her name implies, NEGA is the polar opposite of Shantae, although she dances equally well. Our next Stretch Goal would add a new Chapter to the game which features this villain as both main attraction and BOSS, as well as a new TRANSFORMATION for Shantae…hopefully something that can counteract the evil doppelganger. Beyond this new Stretch Goal lies FULL VOICE ACTING! We’ll dig into that one later, should the opportunity present itself. For now, give yourselves a HUGE pat on the back! And THANK YOU from everyone here at WayForward!

      Holy crap! I almost want people to stop contributing. If we keep hitting more stretch goals, you'll have to keep adding content, and then it'd never get done!

      Key word: Almost.

    3. Matt & Joey on

      Great news! I haven't been around for a while but it's nice to come back to see that we've reached 900k. I can't wait to play as these 3 as well, this was one of the stretch goals I was hoping we would reach.

    4. Greg Lane on

      I'm ecstatic that this new goal has been reached! But I'm not sure how I feel about the continued funding campaign in general. It makes more sense to me to fund chapters in advance of development, so that the game has a proper climactic ending based on what the team can afford to do.

      I would personally rather have the new chapter funded now (so the story can be locked down), and have the three playable characters funded with money earned from the release of the game, similar to how Shovel Knight plans to release free DLC of the playable boss knights. Could this maybe be another opportunity for a vote, where the backers decide which stretch goal to fund? Or were funds connected in a way that artists, level designers, coders, etc would need the full million to make that last chapter?

      Anyway, I wish you the best with continued development, but I just wanted to voice that concern. Congrats on reaching 900K! =)

      This is awesome! Can't believe still hitting goals! Take your time with it. I'll wait.

      Congrats on making the 60th update! Oh, and also for hitting the 900k goal, I guess. ;P

    7. Jasae Bushae on

      marvelous! I love them all~ X3 oh gosh this will be exciting

    8. Jack Lok on

      I was beginning to doubt the fact this stretch goal would be funded... and then this happened. So happy! Can't wait to play as them all. Especially Rottytops.
      I'd like to know what other games can have you play as a Zombie.

      Will the game be playable on a Mac as well? Or is that another stretch goal? Cause the less time I need to spend on my PC the better. :P

    10. Sin Volvagia on

      I think releasing Risky's Revenge on Steam brought more attention to this project. That was a smart move.

      Here's hoping we somehow get the other goals. At least the game has way more replay value now than it did before. Looking forward to pirate's curse.

    12. netwarrior on

      Finally! This was my most favourite stretch goal.
      I've thought there would be no progress.
      Now I'm looking forward how it will be to play with Bolo.
      But Sky also looks nice to play.

    13. Perplex on

      Maybe we'll get a spike when Pirate's Curse gets released.

      Whenever that will be...

    14. Smittynator on

      I still hope we can hit the 1.1M ... VOs would be sooooo nice ^-^ <3 ... Go Shantae! Go Wayforward! Go Go Go!

      That is awesome. And insane ... but mostly, it's insanely awesome. :D

      Congratulations on knocking down yet ANOTHER stretch goal, even most of a year after the official Kickstarter campaign wrapped!

    16. Zynk on

      I like it when even though the KS event has ended, the funding still continues until the release date and the stretch goals are added. GJ

    17. Antonio Ortiz on

      So excited this game would be even bigger and bigger : D (and I have still time to pledge moar cash!)

      holy flippin' tuna on a grill
      what a surprise I didn't even think this would ever happen XD

      I hope more people will show up for this, all of these stretch goals are rad as hell and would make the game ever better ^^

    19. Julie Riley on

      Yay. At least we now get more playable a though I wish the next goal would have been a little cheaper than another 100,000 bucks. At least it's something though

    20. Gerald Bocook on

      I hope those next stretch goals are hit, cuz I really want the Clockwork Night campaign. :T

      Congrats, Wayforward. :)

      Come on, everybody. Let's keep this going. Continue spreading the word about this game as much as possible. We still have time to go all the way.

      Gonna love playing as Rottytops!

    24. Malcolm DeMaggio on

      This makes me even more excited for the game! I can't wait to play as Bolo; that ball and chain seems like it'll be really interesting. Thank you guys for making this possible!

      Awesome! Can't wait for this game! Hope they can get a million dollars so I can have another crack at Nega-Shantae.

    26. Greg Stetson on

      Rottytops reminds me of Decapattack lol. I liked that game as a kid. Personally, I'll prefer to play as Shantae, but I'm glad to see this getting the support it deserves.

    27. Trevor McDoctor - Day 0 Shantae Fan on

      ROTTYTOPS! HOORAY! Sky & Bolo look great too!

    28. Gary Sanders on

      Man I'd love to get that Nega Shantae chapter! Anyone think we could get there?

    29. Marco Zelaya on

      Quick questions, but if the paypal stays open will it not take longer for the game to come out since there is a chance for this extra content?

    30. Marco Zelaya on

      I am very excited for Rottytops.

    31. Rex Warden on

      Awww yeah, more gameplay springs forth as from a geyser of enjoyment. Thanks for being one of the precious few saviors of fun.

    32. Justin Morante on

      Bolo sounds perfect for some Castlevania style action! Can`t wait!

    33. Derek Chiasson on

      You guys should really consider some more add-ons through Paypal. It's been a long time since your backers forked over their money, so many of them are probably happy to throw in a little more money with the right incentive (I know I am!). Give us the option to add on extra shirts, soundtracks, coins, posters, art books, sketches... Maybe add in a mock-up box (like Shovel Knight had) or autographs on some of the merch... I'm already in at the $500 tier, but with the right incentives I would be happy to increase that by 50% or more.

      Congrats everyone! :D

      Glad we hit another goal, REALLY hoping we hit the next. Nega-Shantae is my most wanted stretch goal. If we don't hit it, then hopefully it'll be dlc if the game sells well enough to warrant it.

    37. Fenril Huayra on

      Awesome, more characters to play, this game will be reaaally great! :D

    38. Niki ES on

      Woohoo!!! I can't wait to play the game over and over and over...and over again!

      Best stretch goals ever. That's why I backed it
