Did you back Mighty No. 9’s Kickstarter? You could be in the credits.

Despite negative scores, the team gets an A+ in "creative ways to thank backers"

Despite negative scores, the team gets an A+ in "creative ways to thank backers"

Yesterday, after years of grueling development, Mighty No. 9 was finally released. And as a last way to send thanks to the community, the development team decided to reward backers with their first video game appearance.

That’s right. If you donated money to the game’s original Kickstarter campaign, call up your family, friends, and relatives — your name might be in the credits.

The insane four-hour long credits includes the names of all those who donated and helped make the game happen. The credited names are simply the names you used when you backed the game, so there’s a fair of share of silly usernames mixed among the legitimate pile. And if that doesn’t sound crazy enough, the development team went even further and gave credit to anonymous “generous backers.”

A short cut of some of the names credited. 

It’s always warming to see developers thanking their fans. By crediting backers, it helps put into perspective how much impact their contribution — whether small or large — made in the game’s development. 

Though some of the campaign’s backer rewards were undoubtedly awesome, I think this is the best one of all.

Mighty No. 9 is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Vita, Wii U, and Steam. You can purchase your copy in-store, or opt to buy a digital copy online.
