      Me encantaría verlo en Vita, es mi plataforma favorita para este tipo de títulos, de nuevo muchas felicidades.

      Congrats! Fingers crossed for a Linux port stretch goal.

      Wii U would be incredible... Shovel Knight for example got great support from the community and as it is told from Nintendo itself...

      Not to brag, but I have every console. I would have to say I love the PS Vita, and it's a game console starving for more good games. (slim pickings) Therefore, I would like to cast my vote for the PS Vita, if any. I love the concept of your game and I was hoping for a metroidvania in this setting to be made my someone, anyone. I hope you and your team can! Good luck and make us backers proud! :)

      I am going to add myself to the ones wishing for a Vita version. Thanks and congratulations for your success.

      Stretch Goals I'd like:

      -Release on PSN or Vita with Trophies
      -As many sidequests as you can fit in it
      -As much customization in the leveling structure as possible

      There really isn't much I see that I would want added beyond that. Pretty much just give us as much of what you've already been doing as possible. The main thing I'd love is a version for the Vita as well(I'm a bit of a trophy whore). It's just the perfect platform for a game like this. Look at how well Guacamelee did on it =D I

    9. Todor Imreorov on

      linux version on steamOS :)

    10. Jake Cline on

      Stretch goals I would like:
      -Costumes (perhaps some could provide powers like a double jump or such. But just cosmetic is fine too)
      -Alternate/Multiple endings based off of choices made throughout the game
      -Hard sidequests for slightly OP gear
      -Talent/skill tree

    11. MαcKrø on

      Congratulations !!

    12. Sauraen on

      Linux stretch goal would be great--this would be a nice showcase title for the Steambox. Live orchestra would also be nice!
      A very brief statistical analysis shows that there's a good chance you will beat your goal by ten times, and you might even make $1 million! Good luck!

    13. Jimmy Tran on

      I would love a stretch goal for multiple endings like chrono trigger (one if my favourite games) :)

      Corin McGregor on

      How about some end-game optional dungeons that are super high difficulty? Something like the trials from the Paper Mario series.

    15. Richard Stuckey on

      Oh yes, vita would be THE best platform!!!

      I vote for Linux version as a first stretch goal! :)

    17. Robert "HealyHQ" Healy III on

      Throwing my support towards a Vita port as well! :D

      Chris Loring on

      Congrats! I kinda hopped on the bandwagon a little late, but it looks like a great game in the making! As for a stretch goal, I'd love to see a 3DS port. This game would be amazing on-the-go

    19. Tracey Craig

      Wouldn't say no to PS4 version either !

    20. Tracey Craig

      PSVita Pretty please with sugar and cherries on top :)

      I agree with a lot of people : a new game+ would be nice.
      If it allow to see the story from a different viewpoint or add additionnal elements or paths and story forks that cannot be reached in the first playthrough it would be even better (a simple replay with end-game character and stuff would be falling short I think).

      Lukas Daniel Klausner

      Please do Linux as a very early stretch goal. ;)

    23. Mihail Miki Cristescu on

      A 3DS port could also be nice :p?
      Maybe as a stretch goal you could add different characters to play through?

    24. Jose Maria Molinero Escartin on

      Congrats :)

      I'd like also procedural content as previous poster said. Also, character housing would be nice. And maybe, extend the crafting idea a bit more... :)

      Again, congrats!

    25. Alessandro Maniscalco on

      I would love to play this on my Vita!!! Also, I don't if it could or would be worked in considering the story, but I'm particularly keen on alternate weapon options besides a whip.

    26. Mark Gottlieb on

      You know... a lot of games of this sort have experimented successfully with procedural content (IE Rogue Legacy). I'd LOVE some kind of endless dungeon/zone for gear grinding, level'ing up, etc... Maybe add a bunch of "exclusive" items to that zone's loot table to encourage time spent in there. Plus, it would dove-tail nicely into the NewGame+ concept.

    27. Joshua Michael French

      I, too, want Vita support above all else. Strange that the Vita has become such an indie machine, but I couldn't be happier with that.

      Visual customization of some sort for Alicia would also be great, even if it was just the ability to change her color palette for a 2 or 3 different sprite sets.

      Character housing, weather effects, day-night cycle, familiars/pets, multiple story paths and endings, and flexible skill progression are all important to me, and it sounds like much of this is being included in some way. For anything that's not, I'd be interested in stretch goals that would check all these features off of my wishlist.

    28. Javier Vera on

      Definitely a Wii U port Stretch Goal. Hopefully not too high.

    29. Thousandone (1001) on

      I like to see more challenging dungeon, live orchestra music and additional game mode too.

      maybe do a special boss dungeon

      and also Boss only stage
      -for this, either player stat is fixed, even skill, so it is always challenging to kill these bosses,
      -or on the other hand, is base on what we obtain, the stronger we are, the easier to kill the bosses
      (but I prefer the fixed one thou)

      Love to see more different,new,interesting gameplay

    30. Chris Anglin on

      Congrats on the greenlight and being fully funded so quickly.

      I'd love to see a secret character added for people that have beaten the game. Hopefully with a completely different playstyle.

      Also, steam achievements would be awesome.

    31. Geoff Bell on

      Clearly my preferred stretch goal is a popular one already (PS Vita) but I'm gonna chime in support for it too.

    32. Joe Sharp on

      I would love to see the game on Xbox One. Metroidvanias are made for the living room

    33. Peter Walker on

      OS X and gamepad support would be awesome.

    34. Brendon FitzGerald on

      Seeing the game on PS4 and Xbox One would be a really great goal. Also, New game + would be a great way to extend play. As for additional ideas, I am curious what you always wanted to include, but didn't think you would have the time/money to get into the game.

      mfagerstrom on

      I'd love a crossplay PS4/PS3/PSVita port.

    36. Seth Brady on

      So glad this was funded quickly. I would love to see a PS4/PS Vita version as a stretch goal.

    37. Protoman Red Bomber on

      Make a special mode that we can play as Alicia's friend, Höstra, and/or that blondie cute wizard running on your "team" topic gift (… ).


    38. Julian Elwood on

      Stretch goal of faster development time? :P

    39. Patrick Kennedy on

      I think you were the only one concerned about reaching the goal XD We all knew it was going to happen almost instantly ;) Congrats!

      As for stretch-goals: Kiiiinda really want stickers for this (re-stickable if possible?). I'm more used to projects for physical products where add-ons can just be tossed into the package, so I don't know how much extra overhead that would add, but I'd put them on everything.

      I don't know enough about the game/story to really make suggestions for things like... bonus levels. Maybe some sort of challenge DLC pack to be released sometime later?

      "D:"? You don't seem so unhappy to me! But I'm glad!

      PS4 version please!

      Congratulations! Rooting for a Vita version here. Sony is usually very helpful in giving a hand to indies, talk to Shahid! (@shahidkamal)

    43. Cy Passley on

      Would love to see a PS Vita and PS4 version!

    44. Manoko on

      Amazing, well deserved funding !
      Hope we can have a PS Vita version, would be phenomenal to play this game on it. :-)

    45. Bouserthedog on

      Glad to have helped out in some way. I sure with the best o' luck to you and the team.
