In an update on Mighty No. 9’s Kickstarter page, Inti Creates has confirmed the platformer will be using Epic’s Unreal Engine. The post also showed work-in-progress footage from the game; head through the break for more.
According to the post, this video was made in just seven days to see if Unreal Engine will be a viable option for the team.
It adds, “Let’s be 100% clear (caps lock on!): THE GAME WILL NOT NECESSARILY LOOK LIKE THIS VIDEO, MOVE LIKE THIS VIDEO, OR ACT LIKE THIS VIDEO — THIS IS A COMPLETELY ROUGH TEST ONLY, MADE IN LITERALLY ONE WEEK, USING ALL PLACEHOLDER ASSETS AND ANIMATION.”
Here’s the video:
The project has amassed $3,059,472 with 32hours to go at the time of writing, and should the project reach its $3,300,000 stretch goal, the developer will release Xbox One and PS4 versions of the game.
