    Aye, hangin' in there. That's all we can do.
    Are you okay? You seem to have left Discord altogether...

    Did something happen?

    Yeah, I’m ok.
    Shantae Ultimate drops 4/3/2018. It may seem as though WF isn't paying me for this glorious advertising, but they are. They're paying me in Shantae.

    Wut? I thought Juan meant April 3. Damn date format.
    JS Shantae
    JS Shantae
    In this case I mean April. Sorry, that format is just ingrained in me. April 3rd.

    I'm not particulary fond of the Anglosaxon date format either. Same can be said about the imperial system, but that's another story. Anyway, no matter how many days it will be, I just can't wait!
    ¨What am I supposed to do, sculpt my way in?¨ Oh boy, Shantae can be a real miss master sarcaster, especially in Risky's Revenge.

    Yeah she's a little smartypants when she wants to be. And yeah, it was cute. A boy and his blob is a delight in itself.

    Can't say if it was cute, but it was sure funny.

    There's another thing I didn't realise until recently: the Chef Girl's kitchen, the boathouse, and Sky's room in Risky's Revenge all use the same background.
    HGH Ultimate Edition is up for pre-orders everywhere.
    Do you know if there's any official Princess Remedy artwork outside the games? With official I mean artwork that has been created by the developing team and/or a third party. Beacuse I've seen many fanarts, but they have many different interpretations, especially colour schemes for Remedy, since the game itself only has limited colours. I would like to know if there's an ¨official¨ soure of how she's supposed to look.

    Yeah I saw Frallans artwork on Tumblr. I guess that one full-colour artwork of Remedy and that girl from Ittle Dew flying through space is the closest thing that comes to official colour artwork.

    While I also agree that yellow and black are her canon colours until proven otherwise, that doesn't mean that I don't appreciate fan artists who think outside the box and come up with radically different designs. Same can be said about any character of any game without offical artwork.
    JS Shantae
    JS Shantae
    Sure. There are some great artworks out there, no denying that
    Anyone here ever play Jumping Flash? Such a great series

    Not ringin' any bells. Is it a platformer or what?

    Wish the longbo wasn't so epensive! Games look neat.
    JS Shantae
    JS Shantae
    Yup. They are first-person platformers for the PS1. Starring a robotic rabbit appropriately named Robbit, who can make some pretty impressive leaps. Totally awesome games, so much fun. Glowsquid: I know right? Goddamn
    Friends to the End is SO AWESOME.

    Did you expect anything other than it being perfect? To be honest, I didn't.

    of course not. I'll just take any available moment to sing the praises of Shant
    Just learned something interesting: Did you know that the first Princess Remedy game was made by only four people in just four days? (And according to lead developer Daniel Remar they mean literally four days, as in 96 hours.) That's really quick for such a nice game, I have to say. (And also a bit funny once you know that one of the developer's last name is Hurtig, which means quick in Danish.)

    Indeed! It was part of the Games Against Ebola 96-Hour "Game Jam" in which participants had 96 hours to make a game. This is referenced by Robin in Mild Town who is ill because he just "jammed for four days straight". Our boys created Remedy and her wacky world, and the rest is history. Thankfully, the sequel allowed a bit more development time.

    Didn't realise that Robin's four day jam was a reference to this. I love this kind of self-referential humor that can also be seen in Shantae, like when the Ammo Baron claims that his airship cost ¨billions of crowd-funded dollars.¨

    Call in sick, close the blinds, and settle in cause the Half-Genie Hype Train keeps chuggin: FRIENDS TO THE END comes out today! We're nearing the end of this amazing journey called Half-Genie Hero, and what a ride it's been. Soon we'll have to wait for an all-new game....*shudder*

    I already watched the game on YT since I couldn't resist my patience anymore, spoilers or no spoilers. And I don't wanna spoil it too much for you, but it has a few interesting things: Bolo meets Bolo, someone from Pirate's Curse returns, and there are a few musical throwbacks.
    Friends to the End comes out TOMORROW!
    JS Shantae
    JS Shantae
    Indeed. And some pretty wild shit happens.
    JS Shantae
    JS Shantae
    Yeah, i'm not worried about it! Anyhow, I don't think there's a wrong idea to be had. It looks like a colorful platformer, which it is. Shantae isn't an 'adults only' title, it's about as accessible as a Mario or Sonic game, really. Everybody can enjoy it, from little kids to adults.

    You're absolutely right, and I often turn a critical eye towards aspects of production in the same way. I think anyone with any love and a bit of intelligence regarding the medium should! But in this case, I think we're good to go.
    Just the other day I picked up Princess Remedy in a World of Hurt, and boy did I have fun! I also played the sequel ¨In a Heap of Trouble.¨ I think it's safe to say that I'm a fan now, so thanks for that!

    Glad you liked them, I don't see how anyone couldn't. They are wonderful games!

    Yes, they are. Short, but really enjoyable. It was completely different from what I expected, so I was quite surprised at first. (Though in a good way.) Normally I don't like RPG's or shmups, but these games managed to combine them perfectly.
    Yo, I know I tend to come off as combative at times but I hope I don't seem that way right now. This place has been super dead for about a month and so it's refreshing being able to push actual conversations again.

    Oh no, you're fine. I know how frustrating that can get. Hopefully we can breathe a little life back into this place!
