Mighty No. 9 Backers Will Get To Vote For The Game’s Second Protagonist


Mighty No. 9 will have two main characters—Beck, the main playable character in the game, and Call, his female counterpart. Unlike Beck, Call’s design will be decided upon by the game’s backers on Kickstarter. Developer Comcept write:


Our artists are already hard at work on their designs for our community-favorite heroine! The plan is to have several for all of you to choose from, right near the end of our Kickstarter campaign, as part of our update for Friday, September 27th. (This way we can also maximize the amount of backers we can include in the vote!)


Then we’ll announce the results as part of our livestream in the final hours of our Kickstarter, on the afternoon of Tuesday, October 1st! The top three designs will all go on to the next round, where they will be colored and tweaked for another vote to take place on our (then newly-opened) community forums at the end of October / early November.


Above are some of the initial designs for Call, although Comcept will be posting all of the poll designs without any colouring in them, so the community can focus solely on the character’s design while voting.
