Achievement Unlocked: Justin Cyr (+ Funded!)
We will publish a formal thank you update tomorrow, but we had to take a second to thank all of you for the amazing support and encouragement. We're funded! Thank you for deciding to join us on this adventure. Before we started, we had no idea how many fans of this beautiful old game would come together to help make our version a reality. You are all the support a small team like ours could ever hope for!
Note: We're working to get our PayPal alternative funding source up tonight, so look for that on the Kickstarter front page, as well as an upcoming update.
Justin Cyr (animator)
We have two prolific programmers, two amazing sound artists... and one heroic animator holding the fort. We already highlighted our large vision as a potential risk for the game, so we knew early on we had to even out those numbers. Today we're happy to announce that Justin Cyr, animator on choice genre titles Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The Game, TMNT GBA, and Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith GBA, is on board to join forces with Bannon for maximum beat'em up pixel prowess! Justin was an early supporter of our endeavour, offering his advice and encouragement. Please welcome Justin. We're lucky to have him!
With initial funding a reality, many of you want to see those stretch goals reached. We'll keep punching 'til the bell rings, and continue to look for ways to get River City Ransom: Underground onto your platform of choice. Gambatte!
