"Shantae: 1/2 Genie Hero" is a 2016 2D Sidescroller/Metroidvania by Wayforward. It is the fourth game in the Shantae series which started on the Gameboy Color. This is the first HD one! It was successfully kickstarted back in 2013 and came out on pretty much all platforms!
As the name suggests, the games feature a Half Genie called Shantae. Who attacks with her purple hair! This one in particular has some super beautiful art and levels. HGH is a little more dialogue heavy than your typical Metroidvania but no worries, the writing is mostly great!
The game basically feels like it was made for me, as it somehow features most of the things I put in a Game-jam game I made myself years back.
I'll be playing the PC version. It's not a very long game, it has 5 linear levels you can revisit (and will revisit often) and a final 6th one. So the videos are delineated by level (like 1-1 and 1-2 to finish out the first level). Usually there's some set-up before the next level unlocks.
The game also features many different kinds of modes and DLC. They mostly re-use a lot of content/levels. I won't be playing through all of them, maybe show off a few modes or DLC after the main run.
Pods will normally be joining me for (most of) the playthrough.
Let's Play & Break?
Not this time! There's not really much to break. It's just a fun, very tight game we're gonna enjoy.

Yeah! And thanks! I love it too. Thanks to the artist, Sapphirre98!Carpator Diei wrote: ↑Fri Jan 22, 2021 10:40 amIt seems a bit weird that Shantae doesn't know about a ruined town in what appears to be the immediate vicinity of her hometown, but who knows how accurate that maps is.
By the way, that Spyro with the flag at the end of the videos always kind of makes me happy
