      Any idea if the game is closer to release?

      Dang! I'm sad that we won't get to see this game yet. When you guys come back I'll be throwing my money down again. Keep on going! :D

    3. Markus Utomo on April 1, 2016

      ; ( I so want to see this happen! Watching the trailer again and again just to hear the music. Hope to see this around somewhere else. If not, I have a healthy supply of ramen noodles. Would happily pledge that also.

      Try again next time! I really am rooting for you guys! This is one of my fav projects ever and I will be a backer till it succeeds! I want to really kiss death!!!!!!

      oh dang! not funded! breaks me heart to see projects like this not get funded! I say keep working it and make it happen anyway! hell, lower you amount next time and do it for 30k!

    6. Lowren on March 31, 2016

      I'm glad to know we will still be hearing from you in the future. It looks amazing, the color palette is stunning and this theme of visual identity in music artists, it speaks to me so much. I already can't wait :)

    7. Johnny Galvatron Creator on March 31, 2016

      You're certainly not spamming Trystan! We've got plan B all the way through plan Z. You'll be hearing more from us. An angel would be great but we've got plenty of paths forward. Thanks for your support!

      Ok don't mean to spam but what about Indigogo? Try there next, people have been highly successful.

    9. Trystan Vel
      on March 31, 2016

      Yes. That's what I meant. This breaks my heart. I sincerely hope that you get an "Angel" someone with means who believes in your game as much as all of us and that at the last minute they pull you up, dust you off and you take flight. You deserve it, this game is beautiful, artful, creative and amazing. Here's to Angels.

      Hey Samantha! We'll have more details soon but no matter what happens, we won't be disappearing. Thanks so much for your support. Stay metal.

    11. Samantha on March 30, 2016

      I've got a couple people at work backing this but... Well, let's be honest...

      What's going to happen if the goal isn't hit? Would you consider more flexible, long-term funding?

      I... I don't want to see this disappear. :(

    12. Johnny Galvatron Creator on March 29, 2016

      Sure does. @theartfulescape

      Does this project have a Twitter account. I feel like if more people saw the sampler they would be drawn to the project.

    14. Liviu Boar (Mr Underhill) on March 28, 2016

      Let's make this happen!!!

      @creator have you contacted any avid you tubers? The Super Friends (i think that's their channel) just talked about another game from a creator on Kickstarter and they were a lot worse off than you and now they are hitting stretch goals with a day and a half to go.

    16. Phil Jones on March 24, 2016

      This kind of makes me angry.

      Here we have a very original vision that's not asking for a lot, yet it seems to be endless derivative retro pixel art games that get all the backing.

      I don't get it!

      Hi all = really nice campaign presentation and layout - interesting project = backed!

      Good luck = music - content - art - style = all there!

      Now Project of the day today :)

    18. Johnny Galvatron Creator on March 12, 2016

      rgnrk, We will be giving out Steam keys and no additional DRM. We hope to also get on GOG which has no DRM.

    19. Johnny Galvatron Creator on March 12, 2016

      Thanks again Phil! Appreciate all of the help!

    20. rgnrk
      on March 11, 2016

      Any info on a drm-free release? No one has addressed that, and it's kind of paramount to me.

    21. Phil Jones on March 11, 2016

      I don't get it.

      You have these quotes from high powered media outlets (Forbes, Killscreen etc) and the artwork and game concept is hugely original, but you're not getting the level of pledges I would expect?

      Is it because your game is a platformer?

      My impression is that the market is saturated with platformers but I don't think that's the focus of AVoFE?

      There's twenty days to go of course and in the meantime,have posted about the game to a couple of programming forums I know.

    22. Johnny Galvatron Creator on March 10, 2016

      Phil! Thanks dude! The monkey-like creatures of the multiverse hum for you in profound stillness. Thanks for spreading the word!

    23. Johnny Galvatron Creator on March 10, 2016

      Hey Kyle! Thanks for the tip! We're looking into it.

    24. Phil Jones on March 10, 2016

      Pledged. Will do what I can to spread the word!

    25. Kyle McKenney on March 9, 2016

      You should organize a Thunderclap, it's a thing that allows supporters to tweet out something about the campaign all at the same time. Other kickstarters have done it before and I'm a fan.

    26. Johnny Galvatron Creator on March 6, 2016

      @Sir Jordi Thanks brother! The Space Gods of the Multiverse give you profound and solemn gratitude. Spread the word about the game!

      not only the music sound great, but the overall artwork is amazing
      this must get funded!

      go go go!

    28. Johnny Galvatron Creator on March 5, 2016

      @BunnyinBoots It does help! The winged creatures of the Multiverse sing for you!

    29. Johnny Galvatron Creator on March 5, 2016

      @Thomas Brush. Thanks Thomas! We're big fans of your work! Pinstripe is going to be electric.

      This looks like the exact kind of game I have been craving ! I truly hope your project is funded...and I hope my 20 AUD helps :)

    31. Thomas Brush on March 5, 2016

      Dig deep folks and let's get this fantastic project across the line.

    33. Johnny Galvatron Creator on March 3, 2016

      Thanks for all your awesome comments guys! We're cruising towards that goal...

      Here's a little something that I threw together to help garner some hype. Enjoy.

      Not only does this look fantastic, it sounds fantastic, too. My heart was stolen by your sampler. Very happy to be a backer.

      I'm not a huge platformer fan but I love the look and sound of this one. I'm in for an early bird copy. :)
