The Kickstarter Thread


Recommended Posts

 

Consortium

Sounds like they're trying for the interactive depth of Deus Ex while using the Ultima "Avatar" concept. Could be interesting...

 

RPS gives their impression of the game

 

Interesting, hope it makes it goal.

 

It seems to be doing much better in this run; they're at 56% ($28k/$50k) with 22 days to go. Good for them.

The Big Blue

Spiritual successor to Ecco the Dolphin, from the franchise's creator.

It looks like they've taken down anything that has to do with the accursed letters: MMO

 

All they have to do now is make it DRM-free and I'll donate more.

 

EDIT: Yes, he has confirmed that there will be no MMO.

Since the last 4-5 pages have largely been about a single KS project/controversy, perhaps it's time to split it off. Stay tuned.

 

Edit: done, hopefully got all the relevant ones. :) Further/continued discussion on the Susan Wilson KS controversy can be done here:

Just upped my Big Blue pledge a bit.

 

I got my Genesis out of the basement, and am going to play some Ecco with my kids this weekend.

 

Man, I hope this game gets made.

About that Kenzie campaign or however her name is spelled..

You might hear the society is equal, but don't believe everything you're told. Women and children are saved first in hostage situations for a reason. It's in our genes to protect the females and the offspring, care for them, etc.

And kickstarter administration are just people. My guess is - they're either simply more into this kind of thing (awwwwwww how cute, a girl campaign) or they have they own daughter "who is just like her", and so they just can't get it into their skull that it's in breach of their own rules.

But let's not forget that you will have to deal with this bull feces your whole life in a lot of places, so don't think it reflects badly on crowdsourcing or kickstarter. It reflects badly on humans, is all. We haven't evolved into mind flayers yet or anything. Race: human. Racial penalty: -2 to intellect.

I did. It will just charge you the converted valie in dollars.

It uses an in-house checkout system instead of Amazon payments for what it's worth. As there's no option to switch currency, your credit card provider will be the one doing the conversion and they might charge a small conversion fee.

I likely would only contribute enough for a digital copy anyways.

 

They did mention that it should work fine (I asked them).

 

MOM was one of my favourite games growing up, but I couldn't remember it for years until I saw it on GoG and went "HMmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm is that the game I think it is??!"

 

And it was!  I have played dozens of games already this year as I was feeling the itch.  Good chance I might contribute to this, but am still thinking about it.

I still hum the overworld map music sometimes.

Camelot Unchained, a Realm vs. Realm MMORPG...

 

What am I missing? Why is this attracting so many backers? Another monthly-subscription-based MMORPG, where you first pay for the development and then pay a monthly subscription?

 

People like MMO's, and Dark Ages of Camelot was a classic one.

Ah, that's what I was missing :-D I thought the subscription model was faltering, though.

 

They are pretty vague about the subscription model.  Plus there are still a lot of people paying subs, but companies are finding that microtransactions are more profitable, as it allows your really dedicated players to pay way over $15 a month if they choose.

Not sure if IndieGoGo belongs in this thread, but here goes:

 

Ghost of a Tale

 

It's being developes by Lionel "Seith" Gallat who did animated movies at Dreamworks and Universal.  It's inspired by games like Zelda, Ico, Gothic, and Dark Souls.  Here's a very rough video of the game in its current state:

 

 

Inspired by Zelda & Gothic, play as a mouse with a lute?  Color me very interested.

There's like 4-5 viable MMOs right now, most of them are mediocre at best, others are great, but not for my taste. And now out of the blue comes the possibility of a completely new one AND with original ideas. Great, count me in.
