Comcept has announced another round of crowdfunding for Mighty No. 9 that will go towards adding bonus content into the game. The first stretch goal listed is to raise $100,000 to add full English voices to the game. Other stretch goals will be revealed at a later date. Keiji Inafune has stressed that any additional money raised will not go towards development of the main but to add in only bonus content. The second round of crowdfunding is going through the official site for the game and is being processed through Paypal. If you contribute, you can pre-order the game or if you pay a bit more, you can pre-order the game and get extras like a digital soundtrack, manual, art book, and strategy guide. This latter tier contributes towards the stretch goal. Pre-orders only (with no extras) do not contribute to the stretch goal.
They’ve also announced a new animated series that will hopefully be coming to TVs in the near future. Digital Frontier is helping with this project and they released the teaser video seen below.

West Games has announced that they are working on a spiritual successor to S.T.A.L.K.E.R. It’s called Areal and the team will be launching a Kickstarter campaign for the game on June 26th. Areal is being developed by the teams behind S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and Metro: Last Night. It will be open world and is set in a post-apocalyptic world. In Areal, civilization has crumbled due to something called Metamorphite. It winds up corrupting the entire world. Metamorphite is brought to the world by a meteor that impacted many years ago.
The story will not be linear. You’ll be able to choose how your character behaves and talks. Every action including killing and speaking will affect the storyline of the game. Unlike other games, Areal will not have a law type of system where you’re either good or bad depending on your actions. You’ll be able to make whatever choice you think is best for any situation without having to worry about how it will affect your standing.
