    I heard 11am PST on steam. Not sure if that's the same for eshop.

    Anyone who played it last night or has been playing it today kickstarted it. They got the codes early and surprised all the backers with them.

    Derp.

    I just remembered that the eShop updates on Thursdays, and I'm so used to being able to buy things on Nintendos typical Friday release dates right at midnight that I totally forgot.

    Watching some Let's Plays of this (I'm terrible at platformers), and it looks really really good. The level design in particular is impressive.

    I thought the entire game was the fucking pants. So good. I gave it the full score in my review.

    This game is great. I mean it's just perfect. The art, the humor, the music, the level design, the shoveling.

    This game is amazing. I went in expecting a pretty good game but found an exceptional game.

    3 pages, and I'm shocked nobody has gone for the obvious Mystery Men reference.

    They hit the sweet spot on the pixel art. It is like an NES game, but not limited by the hardware.

    I love the relics. This game really feels like classic mega man meets classic Castlevania. With a smidgen of Zelda II and Ducktales.

    I like the silliness of the animal townspeople. Shades of FF12 there.

    The towns have a level of detail that you wished Zelda II had.

    Just saw the Troupple King on the quicklook. Yep. This is worth a purchase. Lots of effort went into this.

    I am curious what they used to make it.

    How can anyone forget an American cinema classic?

    Edit: Of course, I could fork-give them if they fork-get.

    It turns out that they made their own engine in C++ and used the Tiled editor.

    How well do the Wii U "Dark Souls" features work?

    Okay Plague Knight is where shit starts to get real.

    Yeah, King Knight and Spectre Knight are sort of warm-ups. But Plague Knight? So many explosions...

    Huh, coulda sworn this was coming to PS4 too? Wii U but-not-PS4 for an indie title like this? Weird. :P

    Guess it's a PC get for me then!

    Oh brilliant

    I never saw that movie, but I totally remember that quote from the trailer.

  • ViskodViskod Registered User regular
    Ha, man. Treasure Knight was a pushover compared to Plague Knight.

  • WyvernWyvern Registered User regular
    I don't remember being very interested in this game when I first heard about it a year or so ago, but the enthusiasm surrounding it is infectious. I'll probably pick it up in a few days once I decide whether I want to buy it on 3DS or Wii U.

    You're not kidding about Plague Knight. When the game gets serious it's not fucking around. I thought the full health potions and the ability to phase were about to make things excessively easy, but damn. Loving this.

  • EnlongEnlong Registered User regular
    Man, Propeller Knight does not screw around.

    Excited for this game, but I hear that the WiiU version will be getting multiplayer later in the year? If so, that makes it my go-to. Otherwise I prefer the portability of my 3DS.

    The levels are much longer than Mega Man levels. I was getting annoyed with the Specter Knight level. The game is like someone upgraded your NES system and cartridges.

    That level was designed by a sadist.

    Just beat the game, it was great. New Game+ ups the difficulty apparently just in case you didn't think it was hard enough.

  • EnlongEnlong Registered User regular
    :(

    It's already over. Totally gonna do NG+, though. And I wonder how one unlocks the King Knight, Plague Knight, and Spectre Knight modes.

    Dyamo Armor is pretty great.

  • TheUnsane1TheUnsane1 PhiladelphiaRegistered User regular
    Why can't Nintendo do cross buy so this would be a non choice game. I have good reasons to own it on all 3 platforms. I think I am leaning steam atm.

    Anyone know how to access the three extra character modes?
