    Quite a lot of platforms (haha get it? .... no?) they are planning to put this game on, I sure hope they make their way forward with this project.

    Thinking of backing this as my first Kickstarter project. Shantae is always that character who easily could've been forgotten but the developer just kept going on with licensed projects so that they can keep making more Shantae games which is something I admire.

    Nice, in HD too. I don't quite see why they need a kickstarter to fund this, but I hope it gets funded nonetheless. Looks good.
    Don't know if I'll back it though. Seems like a good deal for $15, but I'd really want the beta which is a bit overpriced.

    This needs to push for a more animesque look; but yeah, MORE SHANTAE!

    So she quite literally "whips her hair back and forth." Huh.

    It looks interesting, definitely, but until we see more gameplay footage, I shan't(ae) be backing it.

    I was expecting a 3DS/Vita release too, but home consoles and pc isn't a bad choose, since these platforms have a wider userbase right now.
    I sent a question asking for a Vita/3DS version, hope they respond :gba:

    I'll wait to see if it ends up near the goal to back it, if it's near $400,000 I'm giving it a go. I like the game so far.

    That's kind of self-defeating. Besides, unless the Kickstarter reaches its goal, you don't pay a cent, so sitting it out is kind of pointless (unless you're waiting for something specific, like more information, previews, endorsements, etc.).

    This game will be compatible with the cheap PSVita TV, it just got added to the platform list.

    Just decided to back this. Could only really afford $15 for the game.

    Sad that it probably wont reach the stretch goals. They all seem awesome.
