Shantae: Half-Genie Hero launched on Kickstarter back in September 2013 and today Wayforward has announced that the game is done. In a message to backers, the studio said that development has finished and offered thanks to fans.
"We're excited beyond human comprehension to tell you the news... Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is done!" said Wayfoward. "What an incredible experience this has been! As you know, this was a very long development cycle, and we're grateful for your support and patience. This project was always about working together to create a product that was shaped by fans, for fans, and now that work is complete!"
