We've reached 60k, so Petula will be starring in her very own horror game Chapter! Thank you to everyone who has helped us this far! We've also found a mayor for one of the towns in YANTH! Please thank ARJANEN Loïc Jean David (first name Loïc) for his generous pledge!
New Stretch Goals
With that, we've introduced two new stretch goals:
Extended Modern World
At $85,007 we have an extended modern world! The extra chapter will not just be a storyline chapter but a whole new area for you to explore whenever you feel like. It'll feature open-world like gameplay, it's like a whole new game!
A lot of you have asked about voice acting, and we're pleased to announce that we will be able to bring it to YANTH! At 100k we'll have strong, professional voice actors playing the parts of Petula, the heroes and anyone else in major events and cutscenes!
Of course, we know there are people who tend not to like voice acting in their RPGs. So we'll try to implement a way to turn off the voices in case it irks you the wrong way!
Easter Eggs Revealed
With the pre-alpha demo having been released, a good amount of people have already found the Easter Eggs! A few of them however have been quite difficult to find. We've decided to share them all with you here. If you know or follow any of these people, please share it, tweet, reply, comment, reach them! Maybe they'll help spread the word about YANTH!
The first one is Mike Fahey from Kotaku!
Next up is Alec Meer from Rock Paper Shotgun! Yes, apparently he is a transformer.
Next we have Ryan Letourneau aka @Northernlion, of youtube and twitch.tv fame! Awesome guy, he taught me a lot with his videos on promoting an indie game!
Now for someone I think everyone adores, and some who don't know him adore nonetheless because of his awesome work: Joss Whedon! Seriously, if you don't know him, you've been living under a rock.
Finally, probably the most difficult to find because he's the only one in the first chapter, the Drifter from Hyper Light Drifter!
Other Kickstarter projects
There are other projects out there that deserve some recognition, and I find these particularly deserving!
Come on, escaping a prison? I'd love to! Have you seen prison break? One of my favorite shows of all time. In fact, Petula will be doing so too!
It's boogerman! SERIOUSLY! You don't know who he is!? You young'ns !!
