Feel free to mention that the Paypal option is still open for donations where your submission is originally posted. Shantae would love all the help she can get!

But wait, there's more! The Shantae fans are working together to make a new Mermaid Shooter in the style of Risky's Revenge Sunken Cavern stage. The game will be non profit and free to play. It will have an initial version to show what the gameplay is like with a couple stages and bosses. As time goes on however, there will be more stages, more bosses and more upgrades. There is also a chance for high quality stills in place of traditional cutscenes and voice acting!

So what is the game all about? Shantae will be in her mermaid transformation the whole game in an underwater adventure across Sequin Land. The five Golden Warp Squid Brothers have been kidnapped by a new adversary. Each stage will have a shooter section and a boss section. Each stage past the first will also have a unique element about it to test your skills. This makes for 10 levels total and we might just throw in a mega boss at the very end.

As for Shantae, she can upgrade her abilities with gems. In keeping with Risky's Revenge, there will also be magic jam to find and collect from bosses for better speed, attack, range and powerups. When she is fully upgraded, she will be a force to be reckoned with!

Furthermore, we will have updates as the game comes along including artwork, music, team reveal and screencaps!

Get excited, stay excited.
