Communi-Day: Freshly baked fan art bits! Get’em while they’re hot!
Hello again, Mighties!
It’s that special time of the month again, where we display the works of our backers and fans front and center for all to see. I have to say, this month’s update was… difficult to curate! There was simply so much art to choose from that I had the hardest time going through all of it. Not that I’m complaining about this parade of eye candy, mind you! It’s always a pleasure.
Let’s flip the script on you for a second though, and start by giving back…
JULY GAMEPLAY VIDEO
Let’s start with a new gameplay video to get you ready for all that tasty fan art! Dig in!
Can’t wait to see all these new bits and pieces analyzed! The game plays great by the way, and is gradually getting harder! (Meaning I’m having more and more trouble with it… dishonor…) Looking forward to your minute feedback on this latest offering of ours!
But enough about us! How’re YOU?
Well, apparently quite a few of you have been playing the amazing Shovel Knight. The game is great, and in celebration of its recent release we had a crossover event over in the Mighty Forums. This spurred some great writing and art which I recommend for you to see here. I won’t spoil the winners for you, but here are some of the great contenders that we had on display, and even some non-Becker creations!

Another activity we have going on right now in the forums is the Mighty Horoscope writing and drawing event! Hurry up and submit your entries because 2 winners will be chosen, as in one for each category! Or just enjoy the show, with beautiful pieces like this Libra:

What’s YOUR sign? ;) (and also why don't you draw/write about it with us?)
FAN ART SHOW
I would ask what you’ve all been up to this summer, but, well, I can already tell: you’ve been busy! What, you think I’m making that up? see for yourselves…

The reaction to No. 2 being revealed as a girl has been fantastic by the way, thank you all! It's generated some wonderful fan art too, as you can see below.

And, to end on a hilarious but slightly disturbing note:

Well, we hope you enjoyed this month’s excursion through talent and fandom as much we did, Beckers! I should mention that we count ourselves extremely lucky to be receiving so much love for Mighty No. 9 even now, after the initial Kickstarter is behind us and the game’s release still a ways away. Thank you. Your hard work circulates through the office and never fails to amaze us! We can only hope this beautiful well of art never dries up!
How do you feel about the new gameplay, the activities, the art? We want to know, so join the discussions here in the comments, on Twitter, Facebook or the Mighty No. 9 forums! Sound off and we will listen.
Thank you for this sublime on-going journey! (￣^￣)ゞ

Community Spotlight: TIMESPINNER
I’m not even going to ask if you love Metroidvania, because honestly who doesn’t? Fortunately for you, even if you’re not a fan, Timespinner has even more layers to it than that! Intrigued? You should be.
From the Kickstarter: “At its heart, the game is a child of the great pixelated classics of the SNES and PS1 age. From the rich story worlds of Star Ocean, the expansive gothic castle exploration in Castlevania, and the tight gameplay of Megaman X, Timespinner seeks to weave all of these elements into one amazing game. “
This game has it all, combining an intriguing time-stopping mechanic with a beautiful moody pixel package. The game even broke its Playstation 4 and PSVita stretchgoals, and recently busted its local CO-OP goal, so you can snuggle up on a couch with a friend and kick some butt together. The Nintendo 3DS goal is up next, so if you’d like to see it on that system, or have it on existing system at all… Do consider donating to the Kickstarter campaign! Only 5 days to go! :)
