We’ve got an exciting update for you today, which includes our vote results, and backer build info! But before we go there, let’s take a look at a brand new foe, guaranteed to make you reconsider your life choices!
Check out this new enemy from Backer Ronald! Its official name is Cyclops Omicron Aquatis, but you can call it Omicron for short. These pesky enemies can be found on land or under the sea. The mischievous little starfish monsters will stick to any hero that wanders too close, limiting their movement until shaken loose! Speed Runners, beware and be aware! Thanks to Backer Ronald for this sticky new addition to the Shantae universe! We look forward to slaughtering Omicrons by the dozens.

These drills will push Patty’s skills to the max as she blasts foes and outwits puzzles – all on her way to apprehending dastardly simulations of public enemy numbers 1 through 5: the Hooligan Sisters! Help Patty survive her trials and prove that she was made for this job!

First, say hello to a new foe!
We’ve got a brand new enemy to show off today, Bonelegs, the 2nd backer-created enemy by Matt M.P. Matt’s idea was to have a large arachnid that could respond to direct attacks, and strike upwards at players who attempt to leap out of range. The design began with some very icky and more traditional giant spider shapes, and then evolved into something like a were-spider. We worked with Matt to make sure that this spider would complement Shantae’s Spider Form (which is still a work in progress). When players encounter this creature in-game, the powerful front legs will mash together to form a shield, which players will need to work around if they hope to strike at its weak spots. The arms will also be able to pierce upwards to catch overhead heroes unawares. Don’t take this enemy lightly! We’d like to extend a huge thank you to Matt P. for bringing his vision to Half-Genie Hero!
