Devolver Digital, New Coloring Book Add-On, and Dropsy's Final Hours Party!
Devolver Digital is now publishing Dropsy!
Hello again backers! First of all, thank you all SO MUCH. We're almost 150% funded, and have over 1000 backers! This is incredible!
As some of you may have heard, Devolver Digital is now publishing Dropsy. While they'll be topping off development funds to help us reach our goals, they'll primarily be providing support in the Marketing, QA, and (incredibly easy) localization of the game. Here's what they had to say:
"We’re going to provide additional funds beyond Kickstarter to make sure that all stretch goals are met and that any additional features or content the team envisions for the game are possible because we love Dropsy and want it made without compromise. Oh, and marketing, QA, localization, etc. The boring stuff."
That said, because of the way our arrangement works, it is still important that we try to reach the stretch goals! You can read the official press release on their website HERE.
Needless to say, it excites me to see Dropsy's adorable little face on the same page as Duke Nukem and Hotline Miami.
New Add-On: Coloring Book + Exclusive Music EP!
Joe Badon is illustrating a beautiful 16 page "Choose Your Own Adventure" coloring book! These will be sent out in January, along with a digital download of accompanying original music by me! To order, click "Manage Pledge" and add 11.11 if you live in the US, or 13.11 if you live anywhere else!
Dropsy Final Hours Concert Party Thing!
We're having a fun little event at a local venue in Lakeland, FL at 8pm on November 24 to celebrate Dropsy's success! I'll be performing some of my solo music, as well as a few cuts from the Dropsy soundtrack. I haven't had time to practice much yet, so I might bomb, but that could make it even MORE fun. How is that even possible?! A few friends' bands will be joining me as well.
We're going to try to livestream it via Twitch. I'll post the link before the show if we're able to get that worked out. Click HERE to check out the event on Facebook!
Friends of Dropsy
These projects look cool, and have supported Dropsy in one way or another! Check them out:
Lisa the Painful RPG - Watch the gameplay video! It's definitely got a bit of an Earthbound vibe to it. It also has perverts. Lots of them. (I don't quiiiite get it, but I'm sure it's really profound.) Whatever the case, it looks like tons of fun!
Ascendant, a 2.5D roguelike-brawler for the PC - That description says it all. Nice style, nice looking gameplay.
Interstellaria by Coldrice, who we mentioned before, is now funded! He deserves it.
Jumping Spider - It doesn't look like this has the momentum required to make it, but Eric Newland has a few really clever, solid mechanics at play here.

Sorry if I missed anyone. Message me and I'll slap it in another update!
I've had many requests to make the $25 tier available through PayPal. I'll be adding this tomorrow (or... later today as it's 3:17am!) Look for it on the main page.
