And backed. Even though I haven't gotten around to playing D:OS yet. :)

Heh. Me either. In fact, I hadn't even bought it yet.
I was glad to see the reward tier that includes the first one.
Now, I can basically get them both for the price of one!
I backed Original Sin 2; even though I also haven't gotten to the first Original Sin yet... and am not sure my system will play it. A sucker born ever minute...

Yep, lucky I did not too as they announce they will upgrade D:OS to the enhance edition for free with much improvement.

Cool. Good ol' Larian.
Can you feel the thunder inside?

Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs: The Video Game - A side-scrolling action platformer based on a lesser known 80's cartoon.

While I saw a couple episodes of this show as a kid, it was never one that I went out of my way to watch. It wasn't until more recent years when I rediscovered the show thanks to it's incredibad opening intro song that I became a fan. For the moment, the game is only available via Steam or 3DS eShop. I have sent them a message to see if DRM-Free is a possibility, but I think this one might be tricky due to it being a licensed game. Still, I am hopeful.

In addition, they have stretch goals to also release the game on PS4, XBone, Wii U, Dreamcast, PC-Engine (Turbo Duo) and Super Nintendo. If that wasn't enough, they're also aiming to release an amiibo. I would have thought this impossible prior to yesterday's announcement of the Shovel Knight amiibo, so that has me very intrigued!

Oh yes, the sentai anime series. Never really got into it either. In fact, when you first mentioned it I pictured BraveStarr, which is a different sci-fi western cartoon from the 80s. I don't have enough nostalgia of this one to back it, but if they do a Silverhawks game, I'm there. :)

I am definitely a bigger fan of BraveStarr and a WAY bigger fan of Silverhawks, but I am still giving them my support on principle. Their license for the series is dependent on the success of this campaign. If they don't make their goal, the rights will expire and they will lose their opportunity to make this game a reality. I don't want to see that happen.

It reminds me of the Kickstarter for The Mysterious Cities of Gold: The Video Game; a lesser-known anime from the 80's with a decent global appeal being made into a game predominantly for Nintendo consoles. That campaign was a big success, so I have my hopes that the campaign for Saber Rider will do well also.

I just can't justify backing this one. I'm still waiting on the Linux version from the first campaign.

I think it's cool they are doing this, and it's a great idea to put it in the hands of the fans for a revival. I just back way too many projects already and need to impose some criterion for myself. I do hope they make goal though!

Regardless, I will come a'runnin' at the cry of "TALLYHAAAAAWK!!!" :D
