First is Mega Man, now it's 3D platformers. What's next, a rhythm game in the veins of Parappa?

That's pretty impressive. More so that they didn't even need the kickstarter money, but hopefully they can make something really special.

There is no market for these games. They belong in the past and died for a reason. There is no such thing as climate change and man walked with dinosaurs.

Holy shit! Last I heard it was going on 200 000$ and I thought it was going crazily fast. This is insane!

I'm so happy to be a part of this.

If I couldn't do it for Shovel Knight, at least I can do it with the successor to one of my fav game series of all time! :'D

They never left on Nintendo systems.

Still, I wish I had cash to spare for this.
They have left Nintendo systems.

We are still waiting on the big 3d mario game in the vein of 64, sunshine and Galaxy. 3d world is just 2d gameplay based (complete with timed levels and jumping on the flag pole at the end) on a small 3d plane. 3d world doesn't allow you to easily explore compared to previous 3d Mario.

It seems Nintendo is just wanting to do 2d Platformers as shown with donkey kong, Kirby and Yoshi.
