Glad to see this is stil going, went and bought Mystik Belle, and it was alot of fun, hoping the same for this one.

Ofcourse the project is alive. I have released a number of Kickstarter updates detailing the situation.
Also - everyone who backed the game on Kickstarter and Paypal got a copy of Mystik Belle, a game I have developed to support further LOI progress.

I'm not exactly sure what happened but he seems to still be around. He released a different game on steam and I think is going back to developing this game.

This is pure speculation, as I'm not a backer, but it seems he got scammed and has been building back up the time/funds to continue working on this.

I'm not sure though, there are posts on greenlight that I can't view that detail the status of the project.

Hello, dev. Can you confirm the status of this project? Your silence makes me believe this is vaporware.
Kacho May 27 @ 11:59am 
Phew. Glad I didn't help Kickstart this!
Yon Mar 11 @ 11:48am 
Is this project still alive? Has been almost two years since new info was revealed. Are the devs on difficulties on the development? Hope you announce a release date soon enough. Thanks.

Interesting. I like how he gives no details whatsoever then says "I really hope you understand my situation."

Aaaaand. Backers got fucked.

This is why I have never and will never back a project on Kickstarter.

This was posted by the developer on the Kickstarter page February 9th:

"I am preparing a LOI update that is not all great news - nothing horrible - the game is still being made, and the backers are still getting everything they have opted for.
Partially as a result of my own inexperience as a business-person, as well as malicious third party (can't name names - I can't afford to get sued), the project hit a rough patch, so In order to keep it going I had to do a quick side-project that all backers of $10+ will get for free.
My sincerest apologies. I really hope you understand my situation."

The promised update has not appeared yet.

Hi ! Can you give us some news please ?
The_Natural Feb 5 @ 2:55am 
Is LoI still in development? KS backer here, wondering whats happening after all this time? No updates since Jul '14. Did you give up on all of us and Iya?
Tyrarius Jan 31 @ 2:02pm

How much will the game cost? That might be an important factor.
Valzeras Jun 30, 2014 @ 10:33am 
Can't believe I missed this gem on greenlight.

Finally this game was Greenlit, I was looking forwrard to it. Although, was it really necessary to shit talk about pixel-art games in the description? You are making it sound like they are a refuge for people who lack skill. Your sprites have details and plenty of frames, and you can tell effort and talent were clearly there and it's a different thing from the many indie games with minimalist pixel art which is all great, but go easy on the judging. People genuinely like those other styles, and they can be animated just as smoothly.

I'm not the one guy who's very young, and getting exuced easily, but man, i am.
I'ts so great to see, when someone do something he love to do.
All i can say and ask - MORE!
If you will create best, lovely, chaming character, we want to have lot of sidestory to read it, after we will be killblow-dissapointed, when game will end.
I even advice - DO sidestory part open only on second walkthrough!
And full sidestory open on third!)

randell5 Jan 3, 2014 @ 3:19pm 
Well done you! Commodore Amiga/ PS1 retro cool action updated to PC platform. Took me back several decades. Trailer looks great so will try your demo now. Yippee!!
artis.teo Dec 30, 2013 @ 6:36pm 
Your game sounds wonderful, looking the trailer I felt like if I were a newcomer in the gaming world. and It's cool ^^
Radiance Dec 26, 2013 @ 2:12pm

FleshWound Dec 13, 2013 @ 5:13pm 
Watched for like three seconds... Mind = blown.

I'm glad you've been greenlit, man. The game looks better than I ever would have expected . . . and it sure makes me wish I could make something like that!
ash2ash182 Dec 2, 2013 @ 12:56am 
It will be mine.
Orochi_Kyo Nov 28, 2013 @ 10:12pm 
This game is just beatiful. I cant wait.

I've been rooting for you for years.The game would feel much better if the damage boxes on the attacks were the same as the motion arcs, but the animations and art are beautiful. Keep it up!
stillalive93 Nov 9, 2013 @ 2:13pm 
I hope the final game is made in something other than Game Maker, otherwise you will lose valuable sales from Windows 8 users, myself included.
Top5Mario Oct 26, 2013 @ 9:35am 
Just played the demo, and was really disappointed.
I know, the demo's rough and stuff, but the controls are just not acceptable for me.
It just doesn't feel smooth.
If that changes in the development phase, I'd be really happy, but right now it's not really something i'd be playing everyday.
