So there’s something you don’t see every day- two Kickstarter campaigns have teamed up to feature crossover elements in each of their games. Shantae: Half-Genie Hero and Hyper Light Drifter have both done well for themselves, with funding complete and stretch goals in progress, and in a bout of mutual respect the two studios teamed up for a bit of fun. Kickstarter backers of either game will get extra content in the form of an exclusive crossover quest unique to each game. You don’t need to back both games to get the bonus content in the one you want, but odds are decent that if you like the look of one of them then the other is probably something you’d enjoy as well.
While details of Hyper Light Drifter’s bonus content and in-game reward for completing it are being kept under wraps, it’s got something to do with Shantae’s nemesis Risky Boots. Wayforward is a bit more informative about Shante: Half-Genie Hero, though, and its bonus is a level where Risky Boots is playable, with the reward being the powerful Drifter Blade. You know it’s awesome because it’s blue and glowy, making it nearly impossible to resist. While Hyper Light Drifter still has ten days left on its clock, Shantae has less than three days to go, so if you’ve been tempted then now is the time to become a backer. Backers get bonuses, and what could be more fun than an inter-company crossover?
