Camelot Unchained is in the middle of a big hiring push ahead of beta one

Camelot Unchained has been teasing a slew of big announcements coming over the next few weeks, and finally one of them is here. No, it’s not beta one (though it’s coming!), but it is the news that City State is once again hiring. It’s already picked up a brand-new community manager and senior animator, both of whom begin this month, plus it’s still hiring for more positions in both offices.

“As time goes on, the announcements’ importance in terms of our Backers current concerns/worries/”BETA WHEN?” will grow, and more questions will be answered, news will be shared, and the question of the Beta 1 start date will be addressed,” CSE says. Maybe hold off on those “beta when” tattoos for now.

This week’s update also includes bits and bobs about progress on the UI, ability buttons, floating combat text, disconnection bugs, animations, and art. The whole Q&A with CSE’s Mark Jacobs is tucked down below.

Excited, as ever. Looking forward to the big announcements. I’m starved for a good PvP MMO.

My guess is that the biggest announcement will be on the last Friday of the month. That one will probably be about the beta. I still have no idea what the other 2 announcements are though.

Just counting the days until the BIG announcement, however it’s great to see things being ramped up in the meantime👍

I make a mean cup of coffee Mr. Jacobs.

We drink a lot of coffee, especially me. Used to hate the stuff and now, I’m a caffeine addict.

Bleh, you’ll never get me to drink the stuff.

I used to say the same thing. I hated coffee when I was young, even though my mom/sister drank it like water. Then I had iced coffee for the first time and it was all downhill from there.

Iced coffee – The new gateway drug brought to you by Starbucks! :)

It is the only drink where you can go into almost any region on earth go to a nice cafe and have a completely different experience every time – taste, people, quality. It is drank by almost every culture and people and different everywhere. If you ever travel coffee is part of the experience.

I believe he’s trying to live a caffeine-free lifestyle. Which seems insane to me, but to each their own.

BC, moi? Not a chance. I can give up carbs, but caffeine, nah. I can cut it down on it, which I did/do/did/do/rinse/wash/repeat, but caffeine-free, not likely, especially the last few months. :)

And it only gets better from here, a lot better.

Have not found it in FAQ. Mark, are you going to translate your game into other languages, what those languages are if you will and what about publishers for different regions?

Reader
Mark Jacobs

Hey Rolan, here are our current plans:

1) No publishers, other than CSE, in US/Europe. This was a KS promise and we’re sticking to it.

2) We want to translate the game, at a minimum to French, German, and English (after all, us colonials, especially from the Bronx, NY don’t speak gud like our British friends!) :) We would also like to translate it into Italian and Spanish if we can get enough support from Backers.

3) I’m 100% open to working with a publisher(s) in MENA, Asia, Russia, and other areas.

Anything else I can answer for you while I’m lurking around here?

I’ve read CE is planned to launch with support for English, French and German languages. I have no heard recent updates on this though.

Will have to buy so many new sofas

Reader

Bored from your cocept art simulator ?

Reader
Mark Jacobs

OC,

Now, that’s the kind of snark I love! Well said!!!!

Mark

P.S. And we bought the last two from Ikea and one was on clearance which meant we had even more money for more sofas!

Reader
Bryan Correll

When can we expect information about in-game sofas? Will sofas for the Viking realm be inspired by Ikea designs?

Reader
Mark Jacobs

Well played BC, well played.

Actually, the new community manager and an additional senior animator (he’s not replacing anybody) are already onboard. Our next hire, should be joining us on the 15th.

We’ve got new hiring reqs going out to our recruiters and we’ll also be updating our website to reflect this.

As I told the folks on our livestream, this was certainly not one of the big announcements that I’ve been talking about for weeks and weeks. Those are scheduled for the coming weeks.

It’s going to be a great month for CSE, Camelot Unchained, and our Backers.

Thanks, as always, for the coverage!

Oh ho?
If your hiring that must mean you are doing well enough financially and schedule wise to grow your operation. This is good. Means your not going to fizzle out any time soon.

Oh, and happy new year Mark, to you and the team.
Hopefully we will all have a productive year.

Reader
Mark Jacobs

Thanks, and you are correct, we aren’t going to fizzle out anytime soon.
