Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. There are plenty of us, but I rarely see anyone else. It feels like it's just me and my fellow backers at this point, which is a shame as this is looking really good to me so far, the best a kickstarter game has looked to me. For so little hype to surround one of the most kickstarted video games in history, it just makes me sad.

Even though I was looking forward to it, I figured the full game would hopefully be more interesting than the rather bland look it sported until recently. I didn't expect them to polish the game's look much before release, but with the latest trailers I am now excited for it based on what I see.

Grandblue Fantasy Re: Link 

I was going to say Granblue Versus, because I've seen more excitement for Re: Link here. But both of those games I guess.

Yeah I'll take the blame there, I don't often talk about it, in fact I usually forget about it altogether. I am hyped for Bloodstained, though it's only really started to look interesting recently in my opinion. I'm not a backer.

Other than that, hm... I guess Ori and the Will of the Wisps. I mean, that's another one I often forget about myself. I guess there are just some games that, while you know will be awesome and are looking forward to, are kinda unremarkable before you actually get to play them.

I wanna say Astral Chain, too, because it hasn't really hit a more widespread audience. But the people it did get to, seem to be quite hyped.

As a backer, I can tell you that from the emails, they know it's only just started to really look good, and they've assured the backers that still more aesthetic improvements are planned. They were aware of the criticisms and made sure to let us know that it was just a matter of where it was in development. That was one of the reasons they brought on WayForward. The big jump in quality in the most recent trailer was partially credited to them. I'm pretty pleased with how it's all being handled. Iga and his team seem way more competent than the team behind recent Kickstarter disappointments like Mighty Number 9 or Yooka-Laylee.

That's good to hear that they just now started being satisfied with its look, and not that this was above and beyond what we should have expected. Hopefully the way it looked before wouldn't have impacted my enjoyment of the game too much, but it may have. I feel like I'm fine with the way the game looks now, but if they can improve it even more without straining their budget too much, then go for it.
I think this was supposed to be a 2017 release originally, but they really made the right call delaying it (assuming there are no budget problems), even if it meant several years. Perhaps Mighty No 9 and Yooka-Laylee would have fared better if they took some more time.

Ciconia no Naku Koro Ni. It's the fifth Visual Novel in the When They Cry universe.

I don't know any friend who is hyped for this game.

Never heard of it. I know of Higurash, and Umineko but not that.

Are they related?

Astral Chain for me. Seems like it isn't getting talked about a lot.



I'm looking forward to...

Astral Chain
Bloodstained
Daemon X Machina
Shin Megami Tensei V
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remaster

Same here. I'm hopeful that once it gets more exposure and details after E3, it'll get a bit more hype around it.

Well, Higurashi and Umineko have similar themes and events, like the murder mystery, the plot that loops, and some recurring characters. But overall, you don't need to play one to understand the other.

I actually watched the anime version of Higurashi, and played the Umineko VN. Both are amazing, so I have good expectations for Ciconia.
