I am pretty excited. However, March is such a loaded month man. I don't know where i am going to get all the funds. Just bought a New 3ds, MH4U, The Order, BloodBorne, Hell Divers, Toukiden Kiwami, and now finally Axiom Verge. All I need now is Cosmic Star Heroine, Hollow Knights, Chasm, Heart Fort Alicia, Ghost Song, and I am sure I am missing some others!

The price is a bit too high but i'm picking it up nevertheless. I played it on a demo booth in some store and it was AWESOME.

I don't want to be -that guy-, but $20 seems steep for this. I don't think it's going to sell very well at that price

Damn, another March game. I'll be picking it up for sure, but I might wait a bit since there's like 7-8 other games I want in March.

Sucks the Vita version isn't ready, but hey it's cross buy which is good news. PS TV support is also planned apparently, asked the dev on Twitter the other day. I can't see why it wouldn't work since the game is designed for controller after all.

Looking forward to this but seems pricey.
It's a full length Metroidvania game, how is that pricy? I've spent at least 3 hours in the 15% "preview 3" build now. Quality and length definitely seem to justify the price for me.

I've got bad news for you: you're that guy.

20 bucks seems really fair to me (edit: hoping it's as good as it looks, fingers crossed). Day one.

Don't get me wrong, I will get it for this price, but I can see a lot of people being put off by it, due to it being a bit more than your standard 'indie' game.

I was about to pull the trigger on Shadow of Mordor. But then this got a date/price. Decsion made. It's about $5 more than expected, but I can deal.

Why wait for Vita version? It's cross-buy.
But people who are mostly interested in the Vita version should not worry. It’s definitely coming, and it’s definitely going to be cross-buy, so if you buy it on PS4, it will be ready for download on your Vita as soon as it launches there.

Not sure that's a good price for this. Could be the greatest game ever made, but the casual person will just see a 2D sidescroller for $20 next to other 2D that cost $15 at the most.

Can't wait - was really hyped when screenshots started showing up, then played at Bestbuy and that hype went through the roof. Will gladly pay $20 for it.

It is a pub fund game so expect a 3-6 months till the PC version BUT There is only one guy working on the game and he is working on the vita version so the PC version will happen but later on.

I'll wait for the PC version which according to the dev is coming a few months later but thanks for the heads up, first time hearing about this fine looking game.

This game is going to be awesome. I have played it quite a bit on the PS4 Demo Unit at Best Buy. The music is amazing and the visuals give me so many feels of my childhood as a 38 year old gamer.


The price is fine!!

Expect several months after PS4 like all other pub fund games. I want to say 6 months? but I'm not sure there are known/set terms for that.

I'm on board! I guess that will be £15 over here. I'm assuming this will be cross-buy for when the Vita version finally launches.
It's cross buy, it's in the blog post.

Dev started on PC, the contract is probably the main issue (though passing it through steam and all isn't inconsequential for a single person)
