Achievement Unlocked: Yoshihisa Kishimoto
From Day One we've understood the challenges of creating a sequel to a game with a loyal following, especially when we were not alumni members of the original's creative staff. We knew we'd need help if we were to recapture the spirit of River City Ransom on this project.
We are happy to report that Yoshihisa Kishimoto has agreed to join this effort as a creative consultant, advising us on art direction, the storyline, and the intangible elements that make a Kunio-kun game what it is.
If you don't know who Yoshihisa Kishimoto is, start here. Yoshihisa is the original creator of Kunio-kun, and his classic Renegade and Double Dragon games have helped define the beat'em up genre. Most recently, he was story supervisor on Hot Blooded Tough Guy Kunio: Fighting Concerto in Japan.
To celebrate, we're opening up a new reward tier, DRAGON TWINS, which unlocks player skins for Kunio and Riki you can use in place of Alex and Ryan. We had a tremendous last week, and hope you'll help spread the word about our project!

We listened to your feedback about in-game credits. The team huddled and came up with a solution. The founder's wall, as we've called it, will no longer just be a list of names on our web site; it will also live in the game itself! The original in-game credit reward will remain as an entry in the game's credit screen, but everyone whose reward includes the founder's wall will be able to find their name in a special attraction in River City itself.
Due to popular demand, we've opened a few more slots of SOUL PROPRIETOR.
