Kickstartered game: Shiness


#1

Hey guys, looks like this indie game is going to have a versus combat mode: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/438269196/shiness
It’s almost at 110k$ and at 120k$ you get the fighting mode

They have a preview on IGN: http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/06/03/shiness-is-zelda-action-meets-kung-fu-combat?watch

I think it looks gorgeous!

A Kickstarter, huh? Okay. Sell me on this game.

Now that’s what I call a pitch!!!


#3

I’ve checked on the Shiness Kickstarter before and I’m not entirely sure if I’d call it a ‘fighting game.’ It seemed to me they were going for an adventure RPG feel with real-time combat, so not sure if this is the right place for the thread. Nevertheless, I do think the game looks pretty nice in a lot of ways for an indie game in alpha and I’m glad they’ve at least met their initial funding goal.


#4

Well I posted it here because the next stretch goal is a 1 vs 1 local fighting mode, with potential for online later on.


#5

Agreed. After hearing about being able to summon multiple rocks, I still wasn’t quite convinced. But being able to summon different sizes is what got to me


#6

why does this look like the 2p minigame from Xenogears


#7

It’s only going to get shot down again because

Imagine this game in PvP “Hey hold up, I have to go look for some big rocks. BRB LOL”


#8

I strongly dislike that this game doesn’t actually have you know a fighting mode and thus a reason to be in FGD. We’ll see how this Kickstarter ends up: it’ll influence my opinions on future Kickstarter ads appearing in FGD before, you know, the thing in question is actually a FG. :bluu:

The IGN comments are pretty funny tho:


#10

They got to 120k, so there will be a fighting mode in the game in case anyone’s interested.


#11

lol @ 150k for a 'New Game+" stretch goal.

You kickstarter kids need to go fuck off somewhere.


#12

Sometimes the noted stretchgoal is a bonus for granting the game a bigger budget overall- That’s where most of the money will be going, for the overall game. This is a common kickstarter practice.
