Question: has anyone ever thought that if they're going to reveal the official name to Project Ukulele?

I really hope they say the official name.

This is pretty exciting. They've been teasing the main characters since the very beginning, so I imagine that they will be revealed. Additionally, Kirkhope's background music is more than likely a rendition of one of the themes of the game, so we'll get some musical information by default.

What's that island about? They are pretty into teasing that one island. Maybe it has an external importance.

I think it's just because it's pretty. I also think it pretty much guarantees a flying mechanic in the game as well, which is a relation I don't think I've seen mentioned. Gotta have a way to GET to floating islands. Unless there's some Super Mario 64 cannons around, flying seems likely.

I've never done a kickstarter, so I dont even know what to expect.

Excitement is rising!

God, I can't believe we're so close to finally seeing the new heroes. I feel like I've been wondering who they are for my whole life now.


SO MUCH HYPE!!!

Super excited for this! Sounds like they'll be revealing more than I'd thought - a good way to get backing from people who don't use this forum. All aboard the hype train, next stop, EVERYWHERE

I wouldn't be surprised if we already have the name of the game.

Uku & Lele

I mean, that could be it, but I don't think so. I sort of hope not as well. Banjo and Kazoo are instruments by themselves. A uku isn't a thing and neither is a lele, and they're not really "names" in any sense either. Lele sort of is but "Uku" is extremely clumsy to pronounce. I mean, names can be made up but... I hope they've got something better.

All I know is that when the KickStarter comes in May 1, I want them to really surprise me with a demo video. That is, if they will show a demo vid.

I mean, what's a video game KickStarter without a demo vid? That's nonsense, I tells ya!

I am so much more excited for May now than i was before. Them saying they're going to reveal "EVERYTHING" is much more than I expected.

I also don't think the game will be called Uku and Lele. I think it may not have ukulele in the title but of it does I hope it's Bongo-Kulele

ARGH I AM SO EXCITED I JUST WANT TO THROW MONEY AT THEM AND TELL THEM THEY ARE AWESOME FOR MAKING MY DREAMS COME TRUE.

...Ahem. Deep breaths.

I've never backed a Kickstarter, so this is super thrilling for me. The only thing I'm worried about is that I'll empty my bank account just from sheer excitement. I'm almost hoping I don't want some of the higher tier rewards, otherwise I won't be able to help myself. :shock:

I was caught by surprise by the "we're gonna reveal everything" thing too! This is very exciting :D This is probably the first kickstarter project I'm going to back in my life. I'd never been so excited about a kickstarter before! Also, I'm particularly looking forward to listening to Grant Kirkhope's new music! Can't wait to hear what he's got up his sleeve for this game.

I might mention that the email only says they're revealing "everything we've [...] been working on", and while I'm sure there's quite a lot of it, I doubt it will actually be *everything* that will ultimately comprise the game.

That said, I'm looking forward to learning quite a lot about this game, hopefully up to and including the name of the game and the names of the main characters and what they are.
