What is Shantae Half-Genie Hero
Shantae Half-Genie Hero, stylized as Shantae ½ Genie Hero, is a platform video game developed by WayForward Technologies for Microsoft Windows. As ever, Shantae’s main physical attack is flicking her ponytail at enemies, but unlike the last game she has regained her ability to perform magic.
A Rival Genie
It’s time for another vote! Remember that “Fire and Forget” Stretch Goal you all funded into existence? In that storyline, Shantae gets REPLACED as Scuttle Town’s Guardian Genie. To make matter’s worse, her replacement is snotty, stuck up, and none too easy to get along with.
Here are more details about the game! Half-Genie Hero will feature 5 main “Animal Transformations”, and 3 additional “Mythological Forms”, bringing the grand total up to 8 . The first of these mythological forms is the Spider Form! As a spider, Shantae can crawl on ceilings and shoot venom. And unlike the classic Game Boy version, she can also fire webs and climb them.
Scuttle Town’s going “full circle” in Half-Genie Hero. We’re building out new concepts that take the original Game Boy Color version of the town laid out in a circular pattern and bring it into a 3D world. The front and rear gate, the scarecrow fields, and even the old Lighthouse bay. We can’t wait to start building the new Scuttle Town.
The Last Backer Enemy is in Captivity
This is it! The final Backer Enemy to appear in Half-Genie Hero! Say hello to Tuki, the sneaky, snakey seller of magical secrets by Backer Matt B! Matt B worked with our Matt B on several designs, and eventually landed on this devious shop keeper rather than a traditional combat enemy.
The Road to Pre-Alpha
I backed this when I was a child, now I’m a full grown adult with chest hair! As with most game development, we carve the game into sections and work on them one by one. Our goal right now is to get the game to Pre-Alpha status. Pre-Alpha means that a person could experience the entire game from beginning to end.
The Hypno Baron made his debut in Shantae: Risky’s Revenge, and he was nowhere to be found in Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse. But he’s back now, and is holding a sizable grudge against our hero! With his powers of hypnotism in full effect, Shantae is going to have a tough time dealing with this powerful foe.
