      Thanks for the good vibes! We're feeling pretty great these days - we're making progress daily, which is awesome! Make sure to keep up to date with updates and on twitter as that's where we're dropping all the new news. Also, please understand that a lot goes into each update/and some stuff needs to be held back for bigger announcements!

    2. Aaron McCallen on March 12

      I threw $12 bucks at you back in the day, and now just want to throw good vibes at you now. Keep on keeping on.

      Sending the creators good vibes to finishing this project...

      Hey Chris, I'm working on the game. Your contribution helped with that. I just sent out builds to all of the beta backers, which you're not one of.

      There are people with a lot of skin in the game, $100-$1000. We've put a few of those backer's rewards in the game, too.

      We're still chugging along, and when I have a new update ready, when our next alpha build comes out, there will be a new update. Again, you can check us on or

      Thank you for your support, and patience.

      I'm guessing nobody has had any luck getting a refund? I asked twice and I never got an answer back. I know it's just Shawn and Manny, but it's hard to have faith after this long.

    6. JetStrange on July 7, 2016

      That's why I said "don't answer that" because I just caught the new video....

    7. Shawn Alexander Allen 2-time creator on July 7, 2016

      I have OBS, but I'm not going to stream every second I work on this game, nor is Manny. We're still figuring how to do that for DEV tier people... and it will come after we have the build out.

      Also, I post updates on twitter, all the time. Even if it's a picture of us working.

      I don't flood updates here, because then people unfollow the project. We're still working.

    8. JetStrange on July 7, 2016

      about that last question... Don't answer it lol

    9. JetStrange on July 7, 2016

      @Austin, I understand your really wanting some news about this game but doing that is going to just make him mad

      But! I do have a non related question to you @Shawn Alexander Allen, Do you have OBS on your computer? this will help you showing the game progress ( yes I've asked you on twitter sorry)

    10. Austin Smith on January 11, 2016

      Can we expect an update in January, or will it be silence until February?

    11. Austin Smith on January 3, 2016

      Any closer to a playable build?

      Happy holidays dood! Still lookin' forward to this and wishing you tons of luck in 2016!

    13. Austin Smith on December 16, 2015

      So, in other words, you have nothing to update us on?

    14. Shawn Alexander Allen 2-time creator on December 15, 2015

      In the last update I said there wouldn't be an update until I had a playable buildbuild, which means backers at the alpha level will have it. I also said "If you aren't hearing anything, it's because of mundane bullshit happening."

      And yes Austin Smith, you ignored my last update and posted multiple times in a week asking for an update, so yes I did ask that you stop.

    15. Austin Smith on December 15, 2015

      @Jetstrange So far I've gotten a few requests from Shawn to stop asking for updates, though I guess that doesn't really count, huh?

    16. JetStrange on December 12, 2015

      Soooo..... Anything?

    17. Austin Smith on December 2, 2015

      No update in November, can we expect one in December?

    18. Austin Smith on October 28, 2015

      Maybe for Halloween you could resurrect this game like a Zombie?

    19. Austin Smith on October 25, 2015

      Has this game been abandoned?

    20. Releasethedogs on July 22, 2015

      Thank you for the update. It will get done when it gets done.

    21. Shawn Alexander Allen 2-time creator on May 18, 2015

      I will be posting a new update soon, I don't want to do too many full on updates as people might stop following. Sticking to 1 per month. You can always follow us here -

    22. JetStrange on May 16, 2015

      Sooooo... any updates?

    23. Elijah Bryant on March 10, 2015

      What's up people? There has been like no comments here from backers since this ended last May, 10 months ago.

    24. Kristen Maxwell on December 15, 2014

      As a much less prolific and ambitious creator struggling with depression, I say take your time, be well, and do good things. In that order. I'm excited to see this project develop, and I'm happy to support you by funding, being patient, and, if needed, listening. Email me if you wan our need to talk.

      On the upside, these experiences will go into this and future projects, and we'll benefit from the way you process them into art for us to appreciate.

    25. Elijah Bryant on August 28, 2014

      There hasn't been really any comments from any backers here since this ended....

      Helloooooo, anyone out there?

    26. Shawn Alexander Allen 2-time creator on June 16, 2014

      Thanks everyone for your comments.

      An update will be coming through soon, and we will be opening up some forums soon as well.

    27. Elijah Bryant on June 16, 2014

      Any new updates or anything?

    28. Elijah Bryant on May 23, 2014

      Still extremely happy that this got funded!

    29. Limn Interactive on May 8, 2014

      Excited that I'll be writing another several rounds of original, authentic NES music for all you backers! Please let me know if you have any music questions!

      Kareem, you left out the obvious title choice: Escape From Fulton City

    33. David Griffin on May 7, 2014

      Super Excited!!!!!!!!

    34. Elijah Bryant on May 7, 2014

      So happy to wake up (I work night shift) and see this funded! Congratulations! And so happy you made a 2nd attempt at a Kickstarter, it turned out to be worth it!

      Now I hope it's able to come to consoles of some kind! 3DS would be amazing!

    35. Xavier Matos on May 7, 2014


      i'm super hyped for this.
      ¿when might us Dev Tier backers get a build to begin breaking, i mean QA'ing? :P

    36. Seizui on May 7, 2014


      Sounds good. Was drumming ideas for an enemy and was considering the category as to where the enemy would fall under. Was considering a street boxer. Thanks, this will help me with my musing.

    37. Shawn Alexander Allen 2-time creator on May 7, 2014

      Thanks again everyone!

      @seizui - there is at least 1 boxing enemy, she's a "grunt". But there could be more! A lot of enemies mix up their attacks.

    38. Seizui on May 7, 2014

      Congratulations Shawn! I am happy to hear you getting funded. ...Huh, quick question. Would a boxer-type enemy be in the game, or do they fall under Grunts?

    39. Cindy Au on May 7, 2014

      Yayyyy! Congratulations Shawn :)

    40. Davy Wagnarok on May 7, 2014


      Crazy how many pledgers came to the rescue during the last stretch!
