Ashes of Creation clears $1M in crowdfunding, shows off mounts, and dangles kitties and puppies
Two days into its Kickstarter campaign, Ashes of Creation has already raised over $1 million and reached its first stretch goal. This means that tavern games of chance will be added to the game’s feature set.
Next up for the campaign’s stretch goals is “enhanced” mounts at $1.25M. There’s also a brand-new backer goal: If Ashes of Creation can accumulate 6,500 backers, the team will include free puppy and kitty pets for anyone who contributes to the Kickstarter.
For those curious about all of these special mounts mentioned in the various backer tiers, the team did post several pieces of concept art to talk about these exclusive beasts. Backer mounts will include particle effects and “unique emissives,” and in the case of one particular animal, even be able to change color depending on the rider’s mood.
The Ashes of Creation Kickstarter page does boast an extensive FAQ that answers a lot of questions people have had about the project, but for all the unanswered questions, we’ve requested a fresh interview round with the devs covering everything from the allegations of past business shenanigans to the affiliate system to just how its flag PvP will work, and we’ll be happy to share that interview just as soon as the studio has completed it.
