Their Kickstarter page is up. They're only asking for $65,000, which is next to nothing, really.
I don't know anything
about Daniel Stacey, but my first reaction to watching the video was that it seems an awkward choice, from a marketing standpoint, to choose a guy with a lisp to introduce the game.
Second, color me skeptical about the combat. How does tying your level to your score make the combat balanced? How does it affect it at all?
And third, I hope the animated cutscenes shown are as yet unfinished. They look like they could belong to a saturday morning cartoon from when I was a kid. What I mean is, there needs to be more shading and detail to them. They're just... not impressive, I guess.
EDIT: also, looking at this screenshot:
Something about the difference in detail between the background and the sprites just doesn't look quite right to me.
The game looks great. I'm just nitpicking.
EDIT AGAIN: I got in early with the $6 Early-Bird pledge, but I'm very likely going to upgrade to at least $16 simply because Brandon Blume (MusicallyInspired) made the music all himself, and you get a digital copy of the soundtrack at the $16 tier.
