Here comes some new Challengers!

How sweet is this!? Two awesome new Challengers, in one Update!

It's been an absolute pleasure to work on these two characters. Aegis Defenders by GUTS Department, is described as "a combination of Metroidvania-style action-platforming and tower-defense style combat, may sound like an odd mix but one thing is exceedingly clear - its hand painted pixel art is gorgeous.". 

It's a stunning looking game that I'm sure you're all looking forward to already. If you somehow haven't backed it yet, you've still got time to head on over there and throw your support behind the awesome team they have assembled there.

Backer Only Keyring Contest

Thanks to everyone who took part in the guessing game we played today, and now you know who the new challengers are, it's time to say congratulations to Joshua Osborne and Angel (sWiTcH-e-RoO) for each getting a character right first! A glorious Super World Karts keyring will be heading to each of you! Attach it to your keys and you are gold!

It was a lot of fun stringing it all together, I'll have to organise another contest soon as I really enjoyed it. I had to refer to 'clues' as 'hints' as I figured saying 'clue' would have given it away too soon. 

I also gave a cryptic clue in the final hint where I said "I wasn't going to give another hint, but the responses to the last clue inverted the way I was looking at it."

      That character selection screen is going to be packed :)

      The expression on Clu's hint gave it away immediately, and noticing that both had hoodies on helped too. Didn't even need to invert colors to catch on (honestly didn't think that's what you did hah).

      Awesome. I just backed Aegis a few days ago, so it's cool seeing them here! I'm going to have a hard time choosing a character at this rate...
