    Daytime bump for this - it's already at 4x its original goal after 2 days. First time I've ever backed something on Kickstarter.

    This needs to be on PS4/Vita. I'm tempted to back it myself.

    Looks like super quick work by some people and Shahid Ahmad so it's on ps4 and ps vita! $15 for a pre-order! Ah, needs to make a bit more money for this, but I guess it will.

    Only $70k away from the PS4/Vita mark, should stroll past it this week - looks perfect for Vita :)

    Looks awesome - really hope it gets to Vita. I wish more games were aimed at Vita rather than having it as the highest stretch goal. I don't know if I would risk funding to just end up with a PC version that I don't have a PC capable of running.

    Will definitely buy on release day though. The art is stunning and it looks really excellent.

    I didn't see a projected release date?

    Now past the $200k mark, so only $20k from the Vita version - will hit it in a day or two at this rate.

    Mentions a mid-2014 release, though I wouldn’t be surprised if the additional funding means it's later, to add the additional features and platforms etc.

    Vita/PS4 goal passed \o/

    $220k in 6 days is some going. Wonder how far it can get by the end of the month!

    Physical Box and Manual

    We will be able to provide and ship out a slick designed SNES style physical box and manual to go with your digital download! Both printed in full color and shipped directly to you. This is NOW a Reward Tier! The Stretch Goal allows us to offer it outside of the Kickstarter for any who would like to nab it down the line.
    Nice option :)

    I seem to be almost on my own in the thread - anyone else watching this?!

    Three hours left to back - over $600k at the moment, and smashed through its Wii U target a couple of days back.

    I backed this ($30) as soon as the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita combo appeared!

    ... thoroughly looking forward to this one.

    : )

    Oh, and thank you for continuing to keep us all up to date Mr. Trowel, however few of us there is.

    Not only looks great, but also Disasterpeace (he of Fez) is knocking up the soundtrack.

    Been playing the preview build today, I like it a lot. I got to what appears to be the end and it seemed like there should be a boss, but I guess it just wasn't included in the preview.

    Anyway, brilliant. Roll on the full game.

    Yeah, enjoyed it a lot. The framerate needs work and the controls aren't sharp enough, but the gameplay is fundamentally in a very good state.

    Also I thought I finished the beta yesterday, then I started exploring some more today... it's huge!! Only got 5/16 of the hidden things, so loads more to discover! And I've only just found the rolling bomb things, brilliant! :D

    Agreed, a few niggles but the design is absolutely solid, it's incredibly addictive. Haven't found those bombs, I know I missed tonnes of secrets and collectables though so I'm far from done with it, it takes a while to get the hang of reading the environment.

    I'm still enjoying going back in to look for new routes and secrets (and falling to my death when I think I've found another hidden platform and it turns out I was wrong). Someone on the forums has stitched together the whole map, but I only glanced at it.

    I've got about half of the 16 collectables, but I don't want to play it too much and spoil my enthusiasm for the full game. It's hard not to though, I'm completely in love with it.

    Edit: Just watched the video you posted, not expecting to see anything new, but I hadn't realised you could deflect projectiles! Nice.
