Just when you thought it was safe to open your email...Communi-Tuesday strikes again!

...On a Sunday?

That’s right, we’re resurrecting one of our favorite update topics from the Kickstarter campaign: a regular sampling of all the amazing videos, artwork, music, and anything else creative, all from our amazingly talented (and prolific) Mighty community! Take a look:

(Above) Beck is ready for more amazing fan art -- are you?! Another incredible animation from janimator0

MIGHTY NUMBERS: ASSEMBLE!

Some of our Beckers had a brilliant idea on the official forums: We all have Mighty Nos., right? So why shouldn’t we all have our own unique Mighty No. boss robot design?! Check out just a few of the amazing creations so far -- and if you’re feeling frisky, why not submit your own? (Some members are even polishing up designs for their fellow Beckers -- you guys and gals are awesome!)

OTHER NEWS!

Speaking of blasts from the past -- the MightyCast lives! ...Well, it will soon, anyway! That’s right, everyone’s favorite Mighty-themed podcast is coming back -- but we need your help in the form of questions you want answered, topics you want discussed, or members of the dev team you want interviewed! Hit us up at any of the usual spots: on Twitter, Facebook, our official forums, or, best of all, call us up on Skype at MightyNo9 and wait for the beep to leave your name, location, and a brief question. If it makes the cut you might just hear yourself on our next ‘cast!

Aaand that’s about it for today’s update. Like what you saw? Like we say, this is only a small sampling -- keep an eye out in all the usual spots, including our unofficial tumblr and newly-opened fan-art section of the forums for more, or to submit some yourself, and as always please let us know what you think, what you like, and what you don’t for future updates!

Until then -- ( ̄^ ̄)ゞ

-Dina (Mighty No. 1046), Roy (Mighty No. 42090), Mark (Mighty No. 84), and the Mighty No. 9 Team

      That Dragon Beck looks amazing!!!!!! I'm really liking the art to this so far. My hope is that it won't be always compared to the Megaman / X series games. I'm really looking forward to this game!

      I'm loving everything so far, SOOOO EXCITED! That dragon especially just screams Mega Man 2 to me. :)

      Creator Hmmm on January 20

      Art is great. Music was fantastic. However, I REALLY wish these updates weren't worded like they were written by a 12 year old. Makes me not want to read these at all. Considering unsubscribing to the email updates entirely.

      MightyCast was great! But hopefully we can listen without using iTunes. So share those mp3 files too.

      Also, awesome to see this panel back. There are so many good artists in the forums, and it's good that they are getting the attention they deserve!

    21. Peruvianhopper.small

      Creator Nenets on January 19

      I come in to check some old updates, and what do I find: a surprise update, with my art in it no less! Glad you guys liked it, and I guess I need to practice harder to make better quality fanart!

    22. Srw_gipsy.small

      Creator Weeg on January 19

      Oh, well this is interesting. Nice to see that things making a comeback. I kinda missed them.

      By the way, Mighty No. 39719 Vince and Shadpenpen are one and the same. Speaking of which, I'll make sure to pass on the request to expand that comic of his. I'd like to see it myself.

    23. Missing_small

      Creator Zack McConnell on January 19

      Not trying to come off like a jerk or anything, but maybe the fan art should be kept to a separate newsletter? All the fan work I've seen is nice and it's nothing against the people who made it, it's just that I didn't really back the project to support other people's fan work, I backed to support the game, and every time I see "Project Update" it makes me think that there will be an announcement of some sort pertaining to the game's development. If someone's fan art were to be featured in the game, sure I'd love to hear about that and see the piece in question, but otherwise I could go to the community forum or deviantArt if I wanted to see fan work.

      Again, nothing against the creative fans (seriously, you guys rule), I would just like to see the newsletter stay relevant to important development updates. I hope I haven't come off as rude or disrespectful, and I thank you for your time.

      Creator Melissa Lee on January 19

      Oh! Thank you for featuring my Dragon Beck, and everyone else's stuff too! There's lots of nice talent in the forums, indeed~ ;u;

      Creator Orson Cream on January 19

      ... Of course, they would play differently, too... So maybe that would be harder than I think.

      But then, the alternative is to have such a huge cast of female bots that it starts to look suspiciously like "HEREHAVESUMCUTEGIRLBOTSTOOSTAREAT!!=DD"

      ... Then again, is that really a problem? xD So long as there's a bunch of guys too it's not unbalanced or inappropriate(see: Suspicious in the eyes of concerned parents deciding to buy it or not) :P

    26. Orson_bunny_b.small

      Creator Orson Cream on January 19

      Why not just have all the other Calls as unlockable, alternate 'skins' for Call? :3c

      Glad to see I'm not the only person who's going to need to get a commission for their Mighty No. bot to look good! I'm just no good :/

      The pic of the two Calls made me realise that it would be a waste to not use both designs. Why not make the runner up into a new character??

      That animation looks wicked on my tablet.

      Creator Richard Chan on January 19

      It would be really cool if both of the top two Call designs were used in some way. Can't there be another female character in this game?

      I wish the gif wasn't so low res though....

      It actually looks fine on my Nexus 5 but when on my computer at the same res it doesn't look the same (24in monitor)
