Mark Kern will share Em-8ER’s design vision – for a price

Em-8ER, Mark Kern’s attempt at subverting game naming conventions (and also something about giant mechs), is launching its next limited fundraiser on Monday to finance the development of a few more features for the pre-pre-alpha version. The goals include the funding of the creation of a weapon system, more interactive frames, the first little slice of actual gameplay (on an ice field) and both male and female character pilots.

To give fans incentive to part with their money, Kern has posted a batch of perks that will be familiar to anyone who has seen a crowdfunding tier reward system. Some of these perks include a PDF of the game’s newly created vision book, 3-D printer toys, forum tags, mech skins, and name reservations.

Update: The Indiegogo campaign is now live and is already a third of the way to its funding goal.

What’s sad he’ll get the funds because he’ll lure people with promises and kill the game off with stupid decisions

Just STOP.
STOP selling shit for a game that doesn’t exist, Jesus.

(And me telling them to stop, I mean YOU, the reader needs to stop BUYING this stuff or they’ll just keep doing this.)

I’m confused. You have to donate to get a vision book. And the vision book is meant to get you interested in the game, so you’ll donate. But you have to donate first to get the book that’s going to convince you to donate.

Um…yeah, no.

When did this game turn into mechs vs. kaiju? >.>

Or has it always been marketed that way and I just missed it the whole time (super possible, and probably likely).

If you want to know the design vision, just go watch old design videos for Firefall and save your money.

I think a video on “scam” might be more appropriate
