The secret boss is IGA himself, calling it now.

I still want a stretch goal for New Game+ where the entire castle is turned upside down. I'd die.  ;D

Were they really expecting a limited response or something? Because a lot of those achievements should be shown as unlocked, but there's nothing yet. I'm surprised there hasn't been an update, either.

Yeah, I was wondering about that. I think they didn't expect to raise this much, this fast. I wonder if they threw in 'cheat codes' as sort of a throwaway thing while brainstorming other stretch goals.
IMO they already know a lot of stretch goals if they even planned a dungeon and a basement area, but their CM shouldn't be very used to KS. If they show more stretch goals they should reach 2k easily today.

My guess is the stretch goals they had planned for $1mil and $1.25mil were ones we haven't seen yet, but they're dangled-carrot stretch goals that IGA/Fangamer/Inti couldn't risk wasting last night, so they bumped them up to higher funding levels. I'm also going to guess they were frantically trying to find a stopgap whenever IGA and Ben were off-camera during the stream and "cheat codes" was a good throwaway option (and hey, another shot at Konami).

Fangamer has run a very solid campaign so far, but their lack of preparation for the best-case scenario, especially a week after Yooka-Laylee, is disappointing.

I was going to say this, we should at least a couple achievements by now (5k backers, 1k twitter followers, 1k Youtube subs, 1k Facebook likes).

Remember when people were calling IGA sexist? And now we have Shanoa and Miriam as protagonists in consecutive games. Where are those people now?

I also think (actually I thought that about the secret backer-only boss) that one boss will be IGA as Dracula!

The things that disappoint me in this game are:
-it is not Dracula`s castle..nor a game about Dracula, which is one of the main things that attracted me to Castlevanias. IGA could have used Dracula, he is free to use as a character
-I dont like the 2.5D aspect of the game. I wish it was a 2D game..
-Ayami Kojima is missing!

The next two stretch goals after the new boss (according to the Facebook page) are a Speed Run Mode and a Boss Rush Mode. I want to see this happen!

--A lot of people compare Bloodborne to Castlevania. Have you checked out Bloodborne and what are your thoughts on it?
--I’ve watched my kids play it. Man, that is a very well-made game. The game world and positioning are pretty different, so I was surprised to hear people compare the two games. I love the Cthulhu world, so I hope they keep on making sequels for it.

IGA has a PSQuadruple.

Were they really expecting a limited response or something? Because a lot of those achievements should be shown as unlocked, but there's nothing yet. I'm surprised there hasn't been an update, either.

They said on the Twitch stream yesterday they actually were surprised it got funded that quickly. With a lot of major gaming sites covering it, I don't really think they should have been that surprised given that Kickstarters from unknown figures can sometimes reach 500k or beyond on viral and Youtuber marketing alone and only late, lagging press from major gaming sites once the KS is almost over. Although that is generally not in a few hours...

I'm still here!  :D

And I'm glad that IGA came around in the end. His attitude towards female characters was really, really bad. And I still stand by that opinion. Though I bet he still feels that female characters are only ok if they have some kind of "magic abilities". UNLESS it was Konami who made him think like that, in which case he's forgiven.
