Update #12

Meet the Team!

Today was a big day at Black Forest Games – we had some of our backers coming over for a visit! Apart from getting a complete tour of the studio and talking to the entire team, they got to experience the level featured in our gameplay video first-hand, and as a bonus, the work-in-progress version of a public demo level as well.

We don’t want you to miss out, so we’ll release some footage of the event soon. For today, we’ve made a video for you where we hunt down each and every team member for some screen time!

Our next update will cover new rewards and an updated depiction of all physical rewards. What you’ll see will be very close to the final look, barring some minor changes. Among the new rewards will be a mousepad with the Pikomi canvas illustration on it, simpler T-shirts on a more affordable tier, Giana figurines and more!

      Afaik the OUYA version will be released either way. But it could be done earlier/faster if the stretchgoal was reached.

      wish there will be enough money to release the OUYA Version, because I backed it too :-)

      I hope it will be founded. Reminds me of the late 90s playing the original over and over again on my C64 (had a broken SID so one voice was missing of the great sound from C. Huelsbeck)

      Our apologies for the abysmal sound. We've found the culprit now and will remedy the situation in our next video.

      I can't wait. This HAS TO happen. Thanks for the little insight. :)

      Giana figurines, huh? I think next to Batman would be a great place for it. Hopefully it is affordable. Otherwise there's still the gamepad.. or the USB drive.

      Btw, today is a good day for the project so far. Two to three times more pledges today like on (nearly) any of the last ten days. HOORAY!

      I wonder the project will hit the target goal. It would be a sad to see such a great project not getting funded and I wonder what would happen if not.
