***UPDATE***
It seems like the Shovel Knight (Yachtclub Games) will join the fight in Aegis Defenders. Because i just saw this comment on GUTS Department´s tumblr page:

“Wait, who’s that guy? OMG It’s Shovel Knight! Our favorite knight joins the fight, courtesy of our amazing friends at yachtclubgames! They are awesome people and have given us tons of feedback and tips for our kickstarter for Aegis Defenders.”

It´s been a while since i saw this much ranting and angry comments about a Kickstarter game. I´m talking about GUTS Department´s upcoming 2D action/platformer “Aegis Defenders“. Don´t get me wrong. The game looks great. But once i saw the Kickstarter video for Aegis Defenders, i started to understand why a lot of people dropped angry comments on Youtube (and via social media).

Because let´s be honest. Aegis Defenders looks very simulor to Miyazaki´s “Nausicaa”. Some would even say that the art style (and characters) are directly stolen form Nausicaa. I mean, it´s one thing to be inspired, or to “borrow” ideas, concepts and such from other art forms.

It’s quite obvious that Aegis Defenders are highly inspired by Miyazaki´s “Nausiccä”.

But if there´s any truth at all to the whole thing with “ripping Nausicaa off“. Then GUTS Department might run into some legal troubles (copyright claims) in the near future. So for the sake of Aegis Defenders. I really hope that GUTS Department have either signed a contract, or talked to mr Miyazaki about Aegis Defenders.

Because it would be a damn shame if the game get´s shut down on Kickstarter. Especially due the fact that Aegis Defenders have collected $51,000 out of $65,000 (there´s 30 days left to go!). So there´s no doubt (whatsoever) that Aegis Defenders are a huge hit on Kickstarter.

So i wouldn’t be that much surprised to hear that Aegis Defenders get´s thumbs up on Steam Greenlight as well. That´s also why i hope that GUTS Department will sort everything out asap. Before the Nausicaa rantings starts to hurt the Aegis Defenders project for real.

About Aegis Defenders:
“HUMANITY HAS BEEN BROUGHT BACK INTO THE DARK AGES BUT REMNANTS OF A ONCE HIGHLY ADVANCED CIVILIZATION STILL EXIST. In this world where control over lost technologies equals power, you play as Bart and his granddaughter Clu as they explore ancient ruins in search of the one thing that can save their village from an encroaching empire – an ancient weapon known as Aegis. Aegis is an Action/RPG platformer for PC/Mac that combines the best of 16bit era adventure titles like Metroid with defense arena inspired combat.”
