Final summon roster

So this time I'm going to talk about the summon roster.

For the kickstarter backers, the $9000 stretch goal was that the backers would get to vote what the kickstarter exclusive two bonus summons would be. There were quite a bit of objections when I introduced the bonus summons as a stretch goal, especially from backers that only backed at the digital game tier, that it was perhaps unfair to give exclusive content to backers that were backing at the physical game tier. I understood the sentiment, so I added another tier at $15 to get the bonus summons on a digital only level.
The idea with the kickstarter exclusive summons is that backers will get a couple of different looking characters from the beginning of the game, not that they're getting a dramatically different gameplay experience.

TLDR; the bonus summons are mostly eye candy.

Vote Result!
1.) Succubus: 93 - demon woman, focus on charm attacks and debuffs
2.) Dryad: 76 - corrupted tree spirit, focus on healing
3.) Lamia: 60 - snake woman, focus on life draining skills
4.) Rakshasa: 52 - fierce tiger man, focus on illusions and status attacks
5.) Black Cat: 51 - ghostly demon cat
6.) Hellhound: 46 - 3 headed demon dog, focus on physical and fire attacks
7.) Iron Golem: 44 - giant magical construct, focus on physical attacks
8.) Basilisk: 32 - gargantuan snake, focus on physical damage and stone status attacks
9.) Ice Queen: 26 - haughty ice spirit, focus on ice elemental attacks
10.) Gargoyle: 21 - demon made of stone, focus on physical damage

So the final result for the identity of the two bonus summons is the Succubus and the Dryad. Looks like everybody really likes the girls. Though, it makes me glad that all the summons were interesting enough to get a considerable margin of support.
