Prismatic Games are certainly on a roll with the cameos they have lined up for their ambitious, Wii U-exclusive party real-time strategy game Hex Heroes. First came the announcement that Max from Mutant Mudds, then Rusty from Steamworld Dig and Juan from Guaclamelee, and most recently Shovel Knight from his own titular title.

In their eighth update since launching their Kickstarter campaign for the game, they have now revealed that Subject W from fellow Wii U eShop destined title Paradise Lost will also be turning up in the game. What\’s more they\’ve also now passed the $10,000 point of their campaign, but clearly a long ways of their $80,000 target.

Prismatic have also revealed two contests for backers of their game which are both rather quite exciting and with some awesome prizes.
