That'll be hit by the end of tomorrow, most likely. There's over $100,000 in PayPal donations, so it's currently at around $3,660,000.

So, we're at around $4,150,000 now, with just over 2 days to go. This is going to become the biggest video game Kickstarter in history.

$4,750,000 stretch goal is pretty much nailed on at this point. The secret $5,000,000 stretch goal will be revealed tonight, and I'm very optimistic.

Now: A word about the $5 million stretch goal. Well, two words. Well, OK, two bullet points.

It is absolutely incredible that we're even talking about a $5 million stretch goal. Your support has changed this game for the better in too many ways to count, though we'll try to during that ending stream...
Anyway, about that $5 million goal. It's a mode. It's going to make this game even bigger than it was before. And we'll be revealing it tonight. (When we heard Inti and IGA were willing to tackle it, our eyes went pretty wide.)

Also, some pretty amazing news:

Hi Bloodstained backers - Armature here with another update. It turns out that a people have shown a ton of interest in our plan to port UE4 to the WiiU and PS Vita. Since they're not officially supported platforms, it's going to be a lot of work to get Bloodstained and UE4 on these platforms, but we are up to the challenge.

Since the community got these platforms off the ground, we figure that it's best to let the community have them back when we're done. As a result, after the release of Bloodstained we will share, for free, the UE4 WiiU and Vita code with any developer authorized to develop on those platforms! Thank you all very much for this opportunity!

So this ended up raising around $5,750,000 (including PayPal donations). Blew everything away.

Pushed back to first half of 2018. Seems like a huge delay. (Unless it was meant to hit late 2017?)

I, for one, am utterly shocked to hear that a crowdfunded videogame project is taking longer than estimated.

In fairness to him he has said this 7 months ahead of time and not a week before release like Inafune did several times with Mighty No.9.

Unlikely to come out on Wii U then, I would suggest.

That reminds me so much of Castlevania 3. :shock: Particularly the assistant characters. I haven't actually backed this, but I always intended to pick it up.

That seems off to me, especially as they've been waiting years for the game.

$10 seems very reasonable, so will probably be picking it up when Castlevania S2 comes to Netflix in the summer

Maybe they hope selling it on the cheap will help them spread the word of the main release.

Really should read the whole thing before posting, now it seems like a much better idea.
