Co-op and developer commentary stretch goals reached!

Heck yeah! We never thought we'd make it to co-op this fast (or even if we would at all)! We definitely think this will be a new experience for a collect-a-thon; to be able to bring a friend!!

There's also some good news on the Wii U front! We're currently talking to a publisher who might be interested in providing us with a full UDK license, allowing us to compile the game for the Wii U! We can't guarantee anything yet, and there is a chance it might still be expensive, but we'll keep you posted!

Next up: A whole new chapter and full voice acting!! If you keep at it at this rate, we might have to look at more content we can add to the game! Wow!!

Also consider checking out It's Dangerous to Go Alone... The Movie! These guys share our love for the cartridge-based games, but they definitely need a helping hand!

      Would the full license allow you guys to compile a Linux build, or can you do that already? Is Linux even on the table?

      Depending on how things go with the publisher, any idea if it would be possible to port to the 3DS as well? I feel like you guys could be very successful on the eShop there as well. Congratulations on reaching over 200% already, I know it couldn't have been easy to get the game this far on your own.

      On the full voice acting front (looking at Jacbo Hering's comment), maybe a good approach would to make it an option you can toggle in Settings.

      What might even be a great tribute is to offer the option to hear voices with the lines in a Banjo-Kazooie style. No actual words but rather nonsensical vocalizations like "uh-UH-uh" or "uga bugadoo."

      man this is soo exciting. This is the most awesome kind of game and I would totally get it for the Wii U in addition to the PC version. The Wii U is dying for some good games.

      Will co-op mode on PC include the splt-screen option? Please tell me that it will.

      @Jacob Hering: He's already said that there will be a classic option, with beeps or gibberish.

      i'd deffinitley buy the WiiU version. Hope it has Pro Controller support. But i dont like voice acting. You should do a survey for backers to see if they wants voice acting or not

      Excellent news, do your outmost to have it on Wii U, also try to think of innovative ways of using the gamepad.

      Nice news :D A full UDK license would allow for a PSVita version too, right? Consider that :P

      That is some great news that a Publisher is looking to help you out with the Wii U, If my publisher could have helped I would have given you guys a call (shame, I'd really have loved to work on this!). I backed nearly $100 because I think this is a Genre that has been lost in time for so long and needs to be brought back. Good luck guys!

      That's great news about the WiiU! I'd be happy to play this on anything but would really love to play it on the WiiU! Good luck!
