The R-Type Final 2 Kickstarter campaign started today and will only go for ONE week.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/granzella/r-type-final-2-aiming-for-a-brand-new-the-best-shmup-ever/description

The interesting options for PC/Steam gamers are in my opinion:

For people who want the cheapest option: 30$ for digital game, 40$ for digital game and digital soundtrack

For people who want a nice hardcover artbook and their name in the credits: 80$ for that and a digital game and soundtrack and your name in the credits

For people who want to spend 70$ on a R-Type T-Shirt: A 150$ option with game download, sountrack download, your name in the credits, and a T-Shirt... well, this one is already a bit less on the "preorder price" and more on the "donation" side, and of course there are some crazy higher tiers where the relationship between what you pay and what you get gets lost.

I my opinion, these tiers offer a somewhat fair value compared to what you get. The 30$ digital option is definitely a bit cheaper then what i'd expect a regular digital copy of this to cost. On a sidenote, for people who also own a home console and like physical games, there are also physical game options for the Switch and PS4 versions.
The tiers above 150$ seem to be more for wealthy R-Type fans who want to make sure this game gets made.

Mighty No.9 says hi.
That project was even crazier, funding-wise.

Oh man, I'm so happy to see this. I played the hell out of R-Type Final on PS2. Collecting the dozens of ships was a fun time. My favorite, the Ragnarok II, had a gun that took like a minute to fully charge up but it basically one shot bosses. That was silly and awesome. Really looking forward to play the sequel.
I want to be the very best, like no one ever was.

Only 56 hours are left. At over 650k $, the first 4 stretch goals gave been reached - so now the campaign gets to the more interesting stretch goals, the retro stages.
The translations in languages other then English are completely unnecessary in my opinion, they either should not have bothered with them at all, or made them the final stretch goals, but whatever.
