The title's $40,000 short of its $50000 goal with 15 days to go. Don't get your hopes up.
Now, when you use the word "popular" here...
"Kickstarter Popular" is not the same thing as just "Popular".
Somehow.. the gameplay trailers don't seem much "Metroidvania"-esque to me.
you know what are good Metroidvania games?....
Metroid & Castlevania games....
GODAMNIT NINTENDO AND KONAMI GIVE US MORE METROIDVANIA GAMES!
If you missed Shaman King Master of Spirits (both of them) by Konami for the GBA I'd recommend you check on them.
There are other decent Konami licensed games using the same engine but I wouldn't recommend them because they're either actiony and linear aka not that much Metroidvania (Gegege no Kitaro PS1/GBA, different versions) or inspired by the "older" Castlevanias (Hunter x Hunter Kindan no Hihou aka Forbidden Treasure GBC).
The best alternatives so far would be Valdis Story, Guacamelee, Aquaria, maybe Monster Tale DS (but it's more like Monster World IV) and Cave Story, but all of these sadly no matter how great they are lack a certain something, and in some cases, the polish.
I tried one of those supposedly CV engine Shaman King games for GBA but it really didn't feel very Metvan to me. Add to that it being based from some cartoon or something I never saw, my interest in it waned pretty quickly.
Just out of curiosity, how can you get to the rank of Reporter? I'd really like to get to it in the future
If that was supposed to be a metroidvania, someone MAY want to give the dev a poke and explain what Metroidvania actually means.
Protip: it's not just a random word, it actually means something.
If you're going to market a game as a metroidvania, show why it's a freakin' metroidvania. Maybe you'll get some money.
I'd say it has a slim chance to be funded, and I can almost guarantee that a WiiU port for 25k more is not going to be particularly appealing enough to ever push them that far.
Too ambitious a price. Should've shot for half that, maybe even 20k.
it looks like a great game, despite the description not being too keen in terms of calling it a metroidvania style but still, total support just wish the wii u wasnt a stretch goal
I hope it happens, in the mean time, check out Epic, it ain't too shabby.
Nintendo should just donate money to some of these kickstarters. Who knows maybe one of these will turn out to be a big hit and they'll make back the donation and then some in Wii-U version sales.
I think it looks like it could be good. (I dont do the whole kickstarter thing tho)
You should definitely get into backing Kicstarter projects There are A LOT of cool rewards you can get Just look at the Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter...
Because #9 is going to end so well...
Yeah, definitely! Why do I suspect sarcasm?... XD
That's... that's m-metroidvania?
Alright, looks like it's time for me to start coding my new project, a metroidvania dating sim.
Nothing really, I guess I would only be worried if Mighty No 9 was being run by an incompetent immature hardline feminist who has never played a megaman game in her life. But no one like that would ever get to be in charge of something so big, so no need to worry.
Make it a eroge and i'll buy it
