of all, I'd like to say that you're my idol when it comes to
fighting games! You may not be a youtube celebrity like
Maximilian or a competitive beast like Daigo, but I've been
visiting your site for over a decade and I can say without a
doubt that you are the one and true expert for me! Not only
you are a skilled gamer who played dozens of different
fighting games but being a martial artist yourself, you can
also appreciate aspects of a game that most mainstream
reviewers can't. Save for only a few exceptions, I find myself
agreeing with every word you say and days after a new game
comes out, I patiently wait for YOUR verdict, because you
remain objective and professional.
that sense, here is what I wanted to ask: Do you know about Them's
Fightin' Herds game?
Right now, it's being
funded through Indiegogo so the team hardly started the
full-time development, but they already have some interesting
stuff to show, like their new take on dynamic music.
Most importantly though, what
makes the game unique is that it could be the very first
all-animal-roster fighting game... well,
cartoon-style-quadruped-animal that is.
I know the theme is not
entirely your cup of tea but since the game is a legit fighter
built on Skullgirls' z-engine, I wondered if you might give
it a chance. For one, it is a purely hand-drawn sprite
fighter, which are becoming scarcer these days. I'm not
asking you to donate, but if you could just signal boost by
mentioning the campaign in your news (even if just as a
curiosity), I think it could help them a lot.
So, if you could do that, it
would be so great! And if not, can I ask if there are any
particular reasons? You are my number one source of news since
you are not focused only on mainstream games but sometimes, I
learn about something and it's not in your news even
retrospectively and I wonder if it is because you missed the
news or you didn't feel the need to post it or something
In any case, nothing changes
the fact that you have the best fighting game site/database on
the internet which I'll always keep visiting.
Thank you for your time,
reading this mail and maintaining TFG.
