Crowfall eyes artifacts and relics as a new stretch goal

    
38

With eight days left in its Kickstarter campaign, Crowfall is pushing hard for last-minute stretch goal milestones. In addition to mounts and caravans if the project reaches $1.3M, the team will hand out a pig pack animal if the 14,500 backer mark is reached and add the God’s Reach ruleset and an artifact and relics system to the core module if $1.4M is donated.

A new dev blog attempts to explain why artifacts and relics are a worthy addition to the PvP title. These are items that are lootable in campaigns that can be brought back to a player’s permanent home and installed to bestow special benefits on that character and home world.

You can watch the devs, ahem, crow about having the 20th largest Kickstarter video game campaign of all time as well as cover the new stretch goals after the jump.

I’m still happy for this game, even if it’s clear that at least one poster in these forums is a volunteer or paid shill for CU who wants to see Crowfall fail for… whatever reason… that probably has something to do with a wish to fellate Mark Jacobs.

Michael18 Craywulf There weren’t going to be any female centaurs, initially, but the initial demand on the CF forums and the feedback that they’d consider adding them was taken into account.  They weren’t hidden behind a stretch goal, they were included at public demand alongside a stretch goal to upgrade the VFX to a higher quality licensed engine.  New models take a lot of new art assets and cost time and money to develop.

Honestly once i paid into the whole star citizen game i knew the game would be a project of something far far into the future.  I don’t think anyone really expected the game to come out when first projected with the additional features and content being added. 
The big difference from this with other none kickstarter funded games is, most game that are being made are kept under wraps for the public till around 2 years before the estimated launch to let marketing do their magic and get gamers in to test it. 

With kickstarter you get in from the ground floor so you feel that you will be waiting longer as you as gamer experience the whole development time where as otherwise you would only experience part of it.

It is a future investment, if it goes wrong it goes wrong. As it is an investment after all so could very well be you end up losing everything. That isn’t really likely as i find they are putting out too much work you can see for it to be going nowhere.  I read the newsbits but beyond that i’m distancing myself enough from it so that i don’t get too worked up over actual delays. 

If you asked me do i find it realistic that crowfall would launch by the end of next year? Maybe they have a core build but it’s still ways ahead, if beta is started before november-december this year i can see it releasing in 2016 otherwise i don’t, since from my experience beta generally takes up a year.

Fair enough, i’m not one to hold grudges. Since i stepped down from a public volunteer position in Age of Conan, i never bothered to get too passionate about any game :)

TehAcidBaron Crueltylizer “There are only a handful people that are negative on several articles”
I imagine most just don’t care, after the Star Citizen debacle. Still, the, uh, “overzealous fans” celebrate a 2 year delay as a good thing.
Nevertheless, it’s great that Crowfall is trying something different.

Ah so it’s us that can’t read, clearly that must be it, i invite you to actually take a minute and do read what is written. Cause if you did actually read i find it strange how you managed to get wrong that i was the only one that boasted about my income status. I wonder where i lied though.
Also what exactly did i white knight? I didn’t say anything about the game or those that comment on the actual game, i merely agreed with the obvious circle jerks that are happening on things people don’t like and thus commented on behavior of others, nowhere in any of my posts did i white knight. But do feel free to point out.

It’s not hard to feel of superior of intellect looking at the average quality of comments on these news articles. Blaming that on me would be as blaming water to be wet. 

But it seems you also crave attention, so feel free to continue this but as you said i’m an arrogant superior intellect and i see no point in spending my free time with plebs ;)

What are you on about? I was commenting on those that seem to spend most of their being cynical for the sake of craving attention across multiple articles what clearly shows a pattern, nowhere did i mention anything about their interest in the game or what it should be or that they should like it, Even the person i responded to didn’t even mention that. I welcome those that actually have some criticism or worthwhile to say, however most of their comments are nothing more then ad hominems or speaking of something completely besides the point, like these constant tears about crowd funding.

You do know the irony in your comment right with nerds, calling nerds as considering these are gameboards we all have a “nerdy hobby” 

So again what are you on about? But i get it you felt the need to white knight for whatever strange reason because you probably recognize yourself in said behavior. ;)

Estranged Crueltylizer TehAcidBaron Well it seems as much, since you felt the need to reply, and as such must have felt offended by the statement. No one is boasting. At all. If I was boasting I would have told you have much I had spent on the Kickstarter and nothing more. That is not the case. 

It seems that your inevitably caught in your own sarcasm for chronically cynical. Just looking through your posts on every article on Crowfall seems to just give in to the fact. Calling the devs indecent, and anyone disagreeing gets a “retarded comment” slander. It even seems you have your own small following.

I’m sorry – But I can’t help change the way your acting, writing on topics, towards people or otherwise. Only you can. 

This is it for me. I’ll stick to just reading the articles from here on out. The immaturity and amount of people having put them self on pedestals so high they can’t even look down is just way to much. Not only on this topic, but on many of the other articles written on Massivelyop. It seems that slandering developers and games is the easiest way to make a comment. 

But it seems I’m out of my league. I have no insight into the real development of games, financial issues or otherwise and as such I can’t really make comments on topics regarding the use of Kickstarter and how to come up with the perfect stretchgoals within reason, resources, time and money. 

But its good to see so many aspiring game developers having all the facts and commenting on these things as if they were making their own games financed only by themselves. /S

It is apparant that it is beyond reason to ask people to be more constructive, if it is not in their nature to do so. I can’t change that. Though my hope will remain for the comments – I will not.

My previous statement stands.

Estranged seventhbeacon And you think Artcraft is not, then?  Or is this more a lack of faith in partial monetization through crowdfunding?
