Ashes of Creation meets Underrealm stretch goal, eyes $2M in crowdfunding

With well over two weeks to go in its Kickstarter campaign, Ashes of Creation has already outpaced similar efforts from Chronicles of Elyria ($1.36M raised) and Crowfall ($1.76M). In fact, with over $1.84M raised so far and 19 days to go, it looks increasingly probable that the project is going to easily clear two million and surpass the Kickstarters of Shroud of the Avatar ($1.91M) and Camelot Unchained ($2.23M).

This also means that the $1.75M stretch goal to include an underground area is now sealed in stone. The team teased this subterranian zone by saying, “The Underrealm will be a rich environment where bioluminescence abounds in the fauna and flora that exist here.  These deep caverns and underground valleys will provide new destinations for civilization to develop.  Bringing the node system into the depths of the world, may awaken darker creatures than the surface. Be careful…”

The next funding stretch goal is to include social organizations such as thieves guilds at $2M. If you missed our Friday livestream interview with the Ashes of Creation team, make sure you rectify that!

Underrealm? So, tons and tons more space that has to be created and brought alive? IDK if I like these kinds of stretch goals. It should have been some kind of custom weapon crafting system or something, that adds a lot to the game without being tons and tons of content to set up.

Did anyone else notice how the gameplay video is almost identical to the gameplay video for everquest next?

To sell a product, you need to create and keep up publicity. Kickstarting campaigns are as much advertising as they are a way to collect funding.

So, they described Blackreach from Skyrim…

For the love of god, won’t someone please give me some information about Ashes of Creation. I can’t find any mention of the game anywhere!

I wonder what it is about these games that makes people open up their wallets. Timing? Some set of options? Good artwork?

Ashes will be one of nearly half a dozen near-AAA titles kickstarted for over a million bucks. By any definition, that’s cray cray, especially for an industry which has an extremely low rate of actual delivery and even lower rate of success.

I sort of wish it was Klei doing the legwork. I’d have more confidence in the delivery.

It’s the promise of The Game That Changes Everything. If it actually pans out it’ll be something pretty amazing, don’t get me wrong, but it’s not like we haven’t heard this kind of hype before going at least all the way back to Horizons and Shadowbane.

You’d have more confidence in Klei creating an MMO? They’ve never made an MMO..

But they do have experience delivering off kickstarter and early access. So yeah, I’d trust them doing an MMO. :)

I for one can’t wait for the 5 article posts a day over-hyping this kickstart money grab. Patiently awaiting the next stretch goal post.
