Wow! Thank you! It's much appreciated! :)

New update... quick look at in-game cinematics mock-up! We REALLY want to be able to include these, so let's hit these stretch goals!

Less than $5K to go... seriously, what can we do to help spread the word? Wish a major outlet would pick this up.

Tweeted to Gematsu, Polygon, and Siliconera asking if they will cover Bushiden. Its a great game, and great eye candy for a story. Gematsu just covered Hazelnut Bastille so it seems like its in line with the stuff they've put up recently. Here's hoping someone picks up this story.

Basically I posted this to each.

Will you cover Bushiden ? Its got 2 days to go on kickstarter, is less than $5k away, and is a major Metroidvania, meets Strider, with Megaman level selecting option game with some of the most gorgeous pixel art ever.

Feel free to retweet this to any other news site, youtube channel, streamer, blogger, social media account that talks gaming, or whatever. Spread the word. At this point its visibility thats needed. Push this news folks. If any media outlet online picks up the story in the next day it'd probably push it right over the top and have it funded.

Gematsu actually did an article on the Kickstarter in the very beginning! Very cool of them and it resulted in good amount of traffic to the campaign! :)

I pledged, best of luck. Back to my ninja meditation on this game being funded.
Thanks for the support!

Will the Physical PS4 be available later through LRG or similar, or will it be exclusive to the kickstarter?

Disclaimer: I have nothing to do with the creation of this thread.

With that out of the way... it's awesome to have a thread here on ResetEra about our game! If anyone has any questions feel free to ask here or even PM me. Lastly, we are glad to hear people are so impressed with the game! :)
My question really is, why no Xbox One version? Is it planned for the future or not at all?

Edit

Nevermind, I just read it on page 2.

Congrats on getting funded. I bet the last few weeks have been pretty stressful. Hopefully the development goes as smoothly as possible.

Yess! I was afraid this was going to fail. Good to see it didn't.

I posted about the game on a couple of aggregate sites the other day , hopefully that helped a bit too.

Hope you have thought about letting backers pick add-ons on Backerkit or somewhere similar after the campaign is over. I can't raise my pledge right now but would do so by next month or so.

Thanks to all of you who have backed! It's super awesome to have hit our goal! The team is so ready to dig back into development and finish the game! Exciting stuff!!!

Yes! LOL

The Kickstarter has been far more stressful than the last 12 months of development! Things should go relatively smooth as we work to finish the game!

We are still deciding if/how that will be handled.

mikehaggar, your amazingly edited trailer paid off. Congrats to you and your team. Game looks really great.

As I said early on in this thread, devs heading to KS really should check out the trailer for this game. It's the perfect example of how to nail a pitch video for a video game on a crowdfunding site.

Just donated for the physical switch. I never buy physical but this game is destined to become special. Hope it surpasses the next goal so we can get a secondary character to play as.

I just finished The Messenger and so I'm totally in the mood to back some more ninja platforming action. Backed for Switch.

PS: Everyone should play The Messenger

So you will never introduce the second playable character at this point?

Huh, just saw this thread and that game looks pretty rad. Checked the kickstarter page and less than an hour to go. Pledged for the PS4 digital version.

Finally offered my sum to the physical switch version.

Thanks, everyone! As far the second playable character goes... we'll see. The team wants to do it badly... just a matter of time and money. It's a lot of work. Our existing playable character has a TON of animations (and more to come)... Seana would require the same.

SO excited for this game! Congratulations!

Thrilled about the stretch goal reached---I am personally much more interested in a New Game+, cool cinematics and a single lead character with tons of animations/actions than a second playable character to be honest.

Are you guys still thinking not until 2020 for release?

Ah I missed the deadline,but since mikehaggar told me there would be a standard release, I'll go for that instead.

Just please make sure to inform the non-backers about the upcoming (physical) release when you do have details.

Very excited you made the goal AND the first stretch... congrats.
