Update 17: Last Week! Ask IGA, Add-ons, Vampire Murderer
The final week is here! To celebrate the end of one long journey—and the beginning of the next one—Inti Creates sent along this image of Johannes, Gebel, and Miriam in happier times. It could be a while before we see them this content again…
It's Ask IGA time! Thanks to everyone who sent in their questions on Special Attacks.
Here are the questions IGA answered in this week's edition.
@MtlShdwOverlord: "Will we see weapons like the Shield Rod from SOTN that have special attacks depending on what you have equipped?"
@metafaniel: "will it feature an spell system that's activated with a combination of buttons similar to fighting games?"
@GunbladeKnight "Is there any plan for a transformation special attack? Like taking a demon form for more speed or power?"
@RipDeep "It's always fun to see all the specials you get in every game, how do you come up with everything? Don't you ever run out of ideas?"
@grep_is_rly_gud "i would like to know if you ever made a special move that wasn't good enough and had to trash it?"
@chatyeah "Did any real life people, places or items inspire attacks or spells in past games?"
Next week's Ask IGA is, conveniently enough, about Endings!! Tweet your questions with the #AskIGA hashtag, and he'll answer some for the next episode. It's going to go live on Wednesday, so be sure to get your questions in before Sunday.
On this week's episode of the Playism Podcast J-PLAY, the crew welcomes me—wait, I mean, Dan Moore of Fangamer—to talk about the campaign's final week, merchandise, Iga Rings, and Bitsummit 2015.
We’ve gotten a lot of questions about whether it’s possible to add extra tiers to your pledge. We’ve done some work on our end, and now tier add-ons are confirmed! Here’s how it works:
- Pledge at the highest tier you want. (If you’re picking up a $250 Collector’s Box and a $60 physical copy, back at the $250 tier.)
- Add the price of additional tiers to your pledge. (If you backed at the $125 level, and you want an additional $60 physical copy tier, pledge $185 total. Want to add on a $28 digital copy, too? That makes your total pledge $213.)
- During the survey, you’ll be able to specify which additional tiers you were pledging for.
- We're not offering add-ons for individual pieces of merchandise, only entire tiers. You can add additional copies of the game or additional collectors boxes, but you can't add art books or shirts individually.
You guys came storming back this week to capture the third Vine challenge achievement! There were a lot of great ones, but here are some to get you inspired for the next challenge.
While you're here, definitely check out these excerpts from Leo Vader's 10-part Vine epic. That's 60 seconds of footage!
Our fourth Vine achievement is due very soon—June 8—so we're looking for 15 Vines. The subject this week? Your special attacks.
Remember to tag them #IGAVANIA!
Mega64, who helped us out at the launch stream in San Francisco, was working on a little something special for you guys at the same time.
It involves IGA. And a vampire. I'm going to just embed it and let you discover this one for yourself.
If you don’t know about comedic video game filmmakers Mega64 yet, you should open their website, subscribe to their YouTube channel, and watch everything they’ve ever made. Right now. Starting with this, of course.
It’s Friday, so we’ll end this first update with IGA’s latest Kickstarter recommendation. This week’s pick is We Happy Few, an unsettling first-person roguelike set in an England where ‘60s mod has curdled over. Everyone in town is perfectly happy on Joy, a drug that “obviously has no side effects whatsoever” — everyone except for you.
Your mission? To escape. The complication? The Wellies can tell you aren’t on Joy. Be careful.
