Elysian Shadows Funded *Update: $170K Goal Reached!*

Post by |darc| » Sat Aug 23, 2014 4:32 pm

The Kickstarter campaign for the heavily anticipated "Next-Gen 2D RPG" Elysian Shadows has now hit its funding goal of $150,000! After a week or so of slowing down, donations surged after the recent announcement that the Elysian Shadows Toolkit would be released alongside the game if the project were funded.

With a week left in the Kickstarter, they now have the potential to start meeting some of their stretch goals. The new revamped stretch goals are listed below.

*Update 1* The Kickstarter has now hit its first stretch goal at $170K!

This is going to get big. I've seen the counter increase with more 20 backers in some minutes, and it's at 157K already.

And Kotaku made an article about the game.

Epic.

I would say this will be the most significant homebrew title released on the Dreamcast to date.

Finally, we will see something that is not a 2D shoot-em-up!

Keep up the great work guys!

Nice! Sorry to see that cloud saves, local multiplayer, and online fell off the list of stretch goals... but given the funding levels and the amount of extra effort required (especially for online play) I guess they were always a bit of a stretch anyway :P

Not to mention the practical barriers to running an MMO for Dreamcast.

All right, finally got off my ass and backed this thing.

This is one of only two Kickstarters I've ever backed (the other is Pier Solar HD). I'm pretty skeptical of Kickstarter as a concept, but this I can definitely get behind.

You mean you never backed Redux?
Dude that is like the best Dreamcast game.
They took an extra year to get it done but in the end.... I'm joking. Smart man!
