Pixelart OARPG Dragon of Legends launches on Kickstarter

Smed's not the only one launching a pixelart OARPG on Kickstarter today: Thrive Games has just revealed Dragon of Legends.

Dragon of Legends is an online action RPG for PC, Mac, Linux, and Mobile devices, that is heavily influenced by Gaelic and Norse mythology. Enter the ever-evolving lands of Hávámal, where the lights of faeries border the realms of darkness.

Work on the 2-D game has been ongoing for the last year and a half, Thrive says in its Kickstarter pitch; it'll include a detailed character class and skill system, crafting mechanics, boats, an achievement journal, twitch combat, and user-generated content. It's also crossplatform: You'll play it on PC, Mac, Linux, and tablet. The studio's goal is $41,318, and thought stretch goals are planned, they aren't revealed just yet.

Thanks for reminding me about this. The art direction is right up my alley, and the storyline and races seem great. Backed.

PizzaDoh This would be the graphics snobbery I was talking about. People see pixelart or voxels and lose their shit and start talking about Zelda or gameboys or Atari. They don't even look at the featureset or pay attention to how these kinds of games make a TON of money on Steam.

Yeah, this is an odd one for me.  Minecraft, Terreria, and Starbound are wildly popular games that use simple graphics, but as soon as an MMO does that it becomes a deadly sin.

Oops. I backed this along with Hero's Song. Crossed my posts! No disrespect meant. Excited for both games!

Games like these used to be fun as hell but I am surprised they even need a KS. Games like these used to be made by kids in a basement in their spare time.

Oyjord Yes because god forbid people decide not to blow thousands/millions on high quality art assets in trade for focusing on actual systems and depth with new ideas compared to the dime-a-dozen AAA games that have to play safe because they need to make a significant amount of money to actually turn a profit.

Serrenity each year that more games come out, it gets harder and harder not to infringe on copyrights of another games or IPs name. Makes it hard to really come up with something that sounds cool while not breaking any rules. :P

Sorenthaz it's because they are in Canada and so it's actually $60,000 CAD

That's a strangely specific number.

More devs taking the easy road with cheap graphics? Pass. Hard pass.

Zariarn actually, they look nothing alike. I think people may just assume they are though because they both use the term "pixel graphics".

This game is more akin to the 16bit pixel graphics of older consoles. Smeds game is "pixel art" because its drawn by hand pixel by pixel, but more closely resembles art from a childs fairytale book, rather than "pixelated graphics"

shadowblender I don't think you know what a "Clone" is. This looks nothing like Diablo 1, 2 or 3.

It is so much like Zelda, on a tablet, with multiplayer.  What's the point?  Honestly as nostalgically fun as that sounds, there are far better mobile MMOs out there available on tablets and smartphones. Ones that look like they came out in the last 15 years and not some 30+ years ago.  Just trying to understand the selling point of it here.

I hate to be that guy, but we can get some different titles than BLANK of BLANK with two non-nonsensical nouns plugged in. I feel kinda bad, but any game with that kind of name i kind of auto-assume it to be a weak clone of something else, and just move on.  Because in the vast majority of my personal experience, they aren't great games. 
I'm probably a terrible person.

I think the game companies have figured out that smart phones are the NES boxes of today.
The sad part is that today's smart phones can produce way better graphics than this ;-)

looks cute and fun but the music, if that's the game's final theme, is very annoying. 

If it has to be 16 bit, then i'd prefer if it was closer to this
