"Dark Lord: The Duel" and SQ remake

Here I want to share about 2 games in development I'm currently waiting for.

The first one is Dark Lord: The Duel by Sad Jester Games. This is the surreal platformer with both linear and metroidvania parts. You can check it on kickstarter:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/sadjestergames/dark-lord-the-duel

The second one is a fan-made SQ remake by the same artist. The gameplay is supposed to be pretty much the same as original. Among differences: the monsters don't drop hearts, instead Simon has to do few quests to earn some money to buy upgrades.
You can check screenshots here: http://legshandshead.deviantart.com/gallery/36026877/Cas-Simon-s-Quest-RE
This haven't been updated for a while because DL:TD eat all the available time, but author mentioned that he'll have a plenty time to finish it if he'll start to work full time which will happen in case kickstarter company will be successfull. So, by supporting DL:TD you actually support this game as well.

UPD. DL:TD kickstarter cancelled, but author keep working on it.

I thought development for DL:TD was halted.

I've made that post when their kickstarter just started. Anyway, the author keep working on both games by himself though it will take longer time. Updated the first post.

Kind of a shame it died. The animations of the main character are a bit weird, but everything else has a wonderful and unique style. Reminds me of a creepier, improved version of mystic defender.
That said, I am not necroing the thread, am I?
