Update 3: Stretch Goals Are Here! New Game+, Challenge Dungeons, and... *drumroll*... the PS4 Port!
Apologies for the delay while we worked out the final kinks, but it’s finally begun! Let’s go through our first set of stretch goals one by one:
Our first stretch goal is for that good old fashioned RPG staple, New Game+. Heart Forth, Alicia's New Game+ mode will put players in a drastically more difficult world where many of the games variables will be altered to make the playthrough more challenging, including stronger enemies, more lethal environments, unique New Game+ foes, and plenty of other hidden surprises. You won’t be helpless, though. Players will start with all of the money from their previous run, three New Game+ exclusive accessories, increased stats compared to a normal playthrough, and more. We might even toss in some super special secrets only available to players on their New Game+ run :)
We’ll carefully hide three secret challenge dungeons in different spots of the game world, each one creating a unique sequence of challenging rooms filled with swarms of enemies for Alicia to conquer on her way downward (or upward!) to retrieve a shiny new reward. Think “Deep Dungeon” from Final Fantasy Tactics or “Savage Labyrinth” from Wind Waker and you’re on the right track. Of course, we’re always open to backer input, so if you have an idea you think would work great in a challenge dungeon, let us know!
The big one. We know that tons of you have been dying for any news on ports, so we’re incredibly excited to confirm that Heart Forth, Alicia is coming to the PS4! We’re working on implementing the PS4 port into our tiers, so keep an eye out for more news soon.
If we manage to break through this set of stretch goals, we’ll definitely do our best to be much more punctual with our next set. What will they be? You’ll have to wait and see :)
