Launch Day!

December 20th 2016 is Shantae: Half-Genie Hero’s launch day! It’s hard to believe that we’re finally there! Yes!! This is really happening!!! So… we’re just going to keep on saying it – THANK YOU for funding this project so we could bring it to life. We made this game together, and it’s time to present our hard work to the entire world!

You Can Help!

Let’s make LAUNCH DAY a huge success! You can help by making some noise! All of the money you’ve pledged went into game development, not into advertising. So we’re asking every Backer to contribute one more time – not with your wallets, but with your VOICE! Post, retweet, “like” a cool YouTube video, create or support a Twitch stream, or like/link your favorite Half-Genie Hero reviews! Let’s show the world what 22,000 Shantae fans can do!

…OR, if you’re feeling really creative, you can use our brand new Fan Kit ( which includes the newest promotional images, screenshots, and backgrounds.

Backer Code Support Update:

Wow, the last two weeks were intense! Backer Code distribution was successful overall, with most Backers receiving codes several days prior to launch. However, there were plenty of cases that needed to be worked out via support email.

At this time, there are still people in our support queue. If you’re one of them, we’re dealing with every Backer on a case-by-case basis. It will take some time, but we will get to you as quickly as humanly possible. If you’re a Backer, and have followed the steps listed in UPDATE #94, you’re on our list! If not, please follow those steps to ensure that our support team is aware of the problem!

A message for Wii U (EU) Backers

Due to circumstances that are beyond our control, we are still missing 800 Wii U (EU) Backer Codes. We are working hard to get the matter resolved. However, we are concerned that the codes will not arrive before the holidays. We will be on standby throughout the holiday. If the codes arrive we will distribute them the moment they come in. Please be aware that this may not be fixed until after the holiday.

Each of you has been sent a complimentary Steam Code for Windows PC so that you can play the game. These codes, which were sent out via Backerkit, are yours to keep. We know this doesn’t solve the problem for many of you. Please accept our sincere apology. The moment Wii U (EU) codes arrive, we’ll send them.

 A Final Thank You!

You’ve all been incredibly patient. It took longer than expected, but we’re very proud of what we’ve all accomplished together. With launch arriving tomorrow, we want to extend our gratitude one more time. You really made this project what it is. Thank you!
