Communi-Tuesday IV: The Beck-oning!
Mighty Becker backers:
One week. That’s all that remains until our Kickstarter ends -- just seven days! This time next week, we’ll be starting up our livestream (stay tuned for details) to wrap up the final hours of our campaign, and revealing the winners of the community vote for Call’s design (reminder: that vote begins this Friday!)!
We’ve come so far in the last three weeks: getting funded and blasting through seven stretch goals (and counting!), reading thousands upon thousands of your comments, tweets, and messages on Facebook, and of course enjoying all your songs, videos, and incredible pieces of fan art!
Speaking of which, let’s get this party warmed up, shall we, Mighty No. 1?

We begin with a special section devoted to a trend we’ve noticed in fan art lately -- or maybe we should say a subject we’ve been noticing: Mighty No. 3! It seems the community has been electrified by our one and only female Mighty No. boss ever since her debut last week. Check it out!
(above) We’re still accepting #MightySalutes to our official Twitter account at @MightyNo9 -- just send a pic of yourself with that hashtag and you might see your mug, along with your fellow Beckers, someplace soon!
FAN ART SHOW
Of course, it’s not just Mighty No. 3 who’s been getting all the love lately. Check these out:
- We’re very proud to announce the addition of a new partner to the Mighty No. 9 rewards team: Udon Entertainment!
These guys and gals are recognized as the gold standard when it comes to video game art books (Dark Souls: Design Works, The History of Sonic the Hedgehog -- we even saw a ton of fans at PAX toting their amazing MM25: Mega Man & Mega Man X Official Complete Works tome!), so we’re thrilled to have them on board, handling the layout of all versions of our English strategy guide/art book. If you don’t know how good this news is, check out some of the stuff on their site -- with their help, our book is gonna be something really special!
- We’ve heard all your requests for an automatic counter to show the total amount of money raised via PayPal, since it’s not reflected in the Kickstarter total at the top of the front page. We’re working with the guys at Humble Bundle on this and hope to have something this week. In the meantime, we’re manually counting the PayPal funds (which is not easy, BTW!) and updating the total at least once a day on the front page, near the top where the PayPal notification is.
And that’s it for this week!
Remember: just seven days left until the Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter is over! We’ve got a lot of goodies planned for this final week on our end, but ultimately how far we can go will be up to all of you, just as it has been so far!
Thank you so much for your tweets, your Facebook posts and likes and shares, your blogs, your messages, your videos -- everything you are doing to let the world know that there’s just one week left for us to hit as many stretch goals as we can, and make Mighty No. 9 the best game we possibly can!
We leave you, as always, with another fantastic inspirational piece from the Mighty No. 9 community:

MIGHTY NO. 9 COMMUNITY SPOTLIGHT!
Does the name Simon S. Andersen ring a bell? If you’ve been following our previous Communi-Tuesday updates, you definitely know his work -- maybe you’d recognize his pen name/twitter handle, @snakepixel?
From the very start of our Kickstarter campaign, snakepixel has been producing OUTSTANDING Mighty No. 9 artwork, week after week. The whole community -- including the team here -- have been just in awe of his talent and productivity. In case you missed any of his works:
We wanted to take this chance to say thanks, and hopefully give a little bit of the love he’s shown us and our community back his way! You see, snakepixel is more than just an artist -- he also runs D-Pad Studio, where he’s working on a game of his own: the upcoming Owlboy, a vertical scrolling platform adventure that looks amazing! Just check out the wonderful character artwork and gorgeous pixel work here:
So please, join us in taking a moment to learn more about Owlboy and D-Pad Studio by visiting the following links, and let both snakepixel and all your friends know what you think! (｀_´)ゞ
