The video looks awesome. I do notice a lack of NPCs, but seriously yeah, it's only three months into development.

Holy sheet....but to be honest with how much publicity it seems to have gotten(looking around and heck just alone getting a ign feature or two) probably helped that. I'd not be shocked if it hit some of the other goals too because why not? Some of those sound like interesting add-ins...I might just have to put some money into this one I think it's worth it ^_^

Yes! I hope the money keeps rising and they can do a lot with this. The visuals look amazing..

It's a shame Sony is dropping the ball with all their PS2/PS3 platformers and not keeping them going. How about another Jak, Ratchet, Crash, Spyro, or Sly? HD platformers are gorgeous and the genre never stopped being fun, as others already said.

Well it's already gained another 100 grand since I first popped onto the page so yeah I don't think we'll have any problems reaching the other stretch goals at this point so this is going to be amazing from the looks of it...I'm definitely going for the version that includes a demo and I really hope they consider doing a vita port/cross buy with ps3/ps4 8)

That seemed like a weirdly low funding number for it.

Crazy how fast it went through! :lol:

I'll be backing this of course. I want that PC physical edition.

I'm very excited about the game. Looks like its gonna be good.

I'll be backing for the ps4 or wiiU versions(I don't have many games for either system yet and i think I may just end up getting the wiiU one...). I just can't seem to make myself bite on 59.99 games(I'm in a major wait for that little bit of a price drop or random sale since mario and others tend to get at least one or two sales...)

That's on course to completely smash what Mighty No. 9 made.

In possibly only a few days...

Isn't it awesome how kickstarter is used to fund new creative ideas, and not projects relying on childhood nostalgia?

I jest, but I think I'll wait and see about funding this :/. I've never actually supported a kickstarter, I've bought the games once they came out
