Yeah, I haven't posted a journal in ages, but if there was ever a worthy cause...
Okay. So. Shantae is a series not many people know, because it's always been held back for one reason or another. But this IP is FINALLY getting a revival, and y'all can help by funding this sure-to-be amazing game, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero.
The people behind it, Wayforward, are GENIUSES (really, look at their track record), the creator Matt Bozon is superplusgood at concept and design, their composer is visionary, their animator is the badass chick behind Skullgirls, and their team on this game is just fantastic. The games are some of the best platform adventure beauty you'll ever experience, and this new game NEEDS to be funded and completed, stretchgoals or not.
I've been gradually putting more and more money toward my pledge whenever I can salvage it. I'm more hyped for this than I am for the upcoming Smash Bros, and that's saying something. SO MUCH GENIE HYPE.
Seriously, even if you're completely new to the series (which only consists of two published games so far), this game is sure to dazzle you and thrill you and something-else you. I mean, it's about a belly-dancing genie girl who fights with magic and transformations and hair-whipping and protects her desert town and wacky adoptive family from tech-wielding dread pirates, and there are mermaids and scorpion monsters and my gods LISTEN TO THAT THEME SONG.
That song. That song is love. If there is love in your heart, send some of it to Wayforward and help them with this game.
Incidentally, if it DOES get funded, you'll see some of my own artwork within the game's art museum! Won't that be fun?!
JUST BUY THIS GAME, SPREAD THE WORD, DO ALL THE THINGS, GUYS IT WILL BE SO AWESOME I'M SUPER SERIAL
