    So it is no longer episodic? Tempting, somewhat tempting ...

    That's how it seems. Curious where they got external funding from, but whatever. Much better that it's not episodic, but I'm still cautious with the reputation they've built since Eternal Darkness. Maybe if Miyamoto was involved like he was for Eternal Darkness I'd be on-board (but then it wouldn't require a kickstarter).

    edit: Oh, you've got an account over at MR, don't you? Love the Zelda-themed portables.

    The Kickstarter so nice, they tried it twice!

    Anyway has anyone else noticed that they had to quote their own voice actor for the endorsements section?

    That's definitely encouraging and doesn't scream desperation at all.

    Pared down goals or no, after spending almost a decade just shitting the bed, I can't say I have any faith in this dev team. I really can't see myself investing in this project at all.

    1.3 mill was the most hilariously unrealistic goal I'd ever seen. Maybe now they might make it, but they're still asking for a ton.
    Hopefully they don't lose any more staff to child porn.

    Well they had a retardedly unrealistic goal and everyone knew it'd never make it, so why bother trying.

    It has more of a chance now but...really it's still extremely unlikely.

    As far as I've seen, the first week is generally where a gigantic portion of the funding comes from, the days after are just stragglers adding on a bit. So its not looking good for them...again.

    Oh hell yeah.

    I'd totally support funding of a unofficial sequel to a game that I feel is vastly overrated and would've been hugely ignored had it not been published by Nintendo. Oh yeah totally now where most of the key people the first game have gone and no one from Nintendo are there to say "dude, take that out...terrible idea". I think it's clever to put my money towards this company who can't manage themselves despite having millions in government hand outs. Oh yeah, this game will totally get made and won't be a huge disappointment to those who liked the first.

    Wait, officially licensed? Does that mean exclusive to PS4 or that they can develop for PS4?

    I'm pretty sure it's that they can develop for PS4.

    They had a TON of funding.
    Too bad they couldn't manage their resources better. I highly doubt they needed 750k to realistically pump out a 10 hour game.
