OK, we all knew it would come someday, and there it is: PayPal funding for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is closing on December 16th, 2014. Here's the current state of funding:
It looks like the four remaining stretch goals would require some huge push to get funded. Someone wins at the lottery or at Euromillions, for instance. But, hey, never lose hope until it's closed.
On the positive side of things, WayForward announced that contributors who financed some artist tiers (Your Face in Game, Enemy Designers, Your Art in Game) would soon be called to submit their work. The "Your Art in Game" will be first. Besides, some more voting will start and updates on the game's development will come more often.
