Trials of Ascension attempts another Kickstarter campaign

    
53

Permadeath, corpse looting, and no mini-map: Will this be tempting enough to get the community on board with donations? Trials of Ascension hopes so, as the fantasy sandbox has launched a new Kickstarter campaign aimed at raising $600,000 for further development. The team says that it already has a product worth backing: “We have a playable prototype on very stable network code along with a solid server infrastructure.”

Forged Chaos undoubtedly hopes to overcome its failure from its 2013 Kickstarter campaign. After only pulling in $86,835 out of a $750,000 goal, the studio canceled the campaign and switched to an open donation system.

If all goes well with the campaign, Trials of Ascension is looking at alpha and beta tests in 2016 and a planned 2017 launch.

Yep, you summed up perfectly my issue with all the resent attempts to create a sandbox MMO.  I want a sandbox.  Oh boy how to I want a sandbox.  But every time I read more my reaction is exactly the same as yours.  I don’t understand why free PVP became such a synonym to “sandbox”.

I guess I will just continue playing my Star Wars Galaxies Emu for now…

TheBBP generally MMOs are a niche market.. ignore wow for a second and most MMOs even AAA ones hardly ever reach a million  subs and stay there.
This is a niche game in a niche market there are people who want to paly this type of game and there are enough of them to keep the game going if its good. So yeah this is not everyones cup of tea but there are enough different mmos out there now that everyone can find one that they will like..
Are Forged Chaos asking/expecting a bit too much ? Yeah maybe they are.

breetoplay Thank you for taking the time to explain it all, It sounds sensible. 
Technocat That might have happened back when they weren’t  so overpowered yet but I never seen proof of it. Now that the site is independent they would tell us if they place advertorials I’m sure.
