Crowfall finishes out Kickstarter worth $1,766,204

ArtCraft Entertainment’s “throne war simulator” Crowfall was officially funded this morning, with 16,936 backers pledging a grand total of $1,766,204 — over 2000 backers and $250,000 on the very last day alone. Its original goal was only $800,000.

The guild tournament introduced with a video yesterday was unlocked at $1.6 million; combat pets are in now, too. A new Kickstarter update reads,

So, what happens next? Now we get to work! We have a game to build. We refine the vision. We engage with you on the forums. We discuss our ideas (and mistakes) openly. We find the right solutions, together. And we continue to seek out our kind. Crowfall isn’t a game for everyone. But there are still players out there — brave, lost, and arguably crazy — who will share this vision. Who, like us, will HAVE to see it come to life. We need to find them, and bring them home. We won’t let you down. We’re going to show the world a new kind of online experience. Thank you for making CROWFALL a reality. We’ll see you in the game!

Teasing Crowfall at Christmas last year, ArtCraft introduced the game by telling MMORPG fans the genre was “stale” and that Crowfall would fix that by being “something completely different, completely unique.” Alpha testing for the PvP MMO is planned to begin this summer for a core module release “with partial functionality” by winter 2016.

The funding video is below.

I like some of the unique things that they’re doing with this game.  The mix of permanence and resets is interesting. Here’s hoping…

I was in SWTOR very early on (Alpha). We had so many fights with the Devs. And we loved the Devs. But even when they ‘listened’ to us we knew they weren’t going to implement anything that came from our feedback. It was a giant WTF experience and very disheartening. Still, I’ll always cherish that opportunity. It was an amazing experience.
Funny thing is, as many gripes I have with the final product, I love my SWTOR toons as much or more than any other MMO. The one thing SWTOR did well imo was make a connection to your character.
But yeah, the missed opportunities. /sigh

paragonlostinspace It goes to show that “business guys” and even Lucas himself never really understood what Star Wars is to the fans. We don’t want to be the hero, we want to LIVE in that universe! It ws even more perplexing for me because SWG tried to go the hero route and it basically killed it. Star Wars fans like having the OPTION to be Luke or Lars or Jabba etc. Then came SWTOR doing the same thing that killed SWG with less of the cool features sigh. /rant off. I aint even mad…ok a little…(starts to flip table, gets half way, sets it back down) see, just a little :D

Pretty much sums up how I felt at the time period as well. I ended up taking a semi break not long after that and not really logging into any mmo-rpg. I’ve only recently returned to SWTOR and I am having fun. I’m taking it for what it is and not for what it isn’t or could have been. Though they missed a big opportunity for sure and there will always be that mental sigh off an on in the back of my mind.

paragonlostinspace I saw SWTOR from pretty early on, it was so sad to watch the forum folks try to bring up all the issues (basically that the game lacked anough MMORPG) and get told “dont worry we can have all that stuff and more in the first expansion, we need to focus on story right now”. Such a missed op for fans, but I guess it made its money back and still does so from a business POV it was a “success”. From my fan POV it was almost the last straw for me to walk away from the entire genre!

Jacobin paragonlostinspace   Oh I recognize that point and actually I do see the humor. I’m just not surprised. Some are just very against type of funding of anything. Which in my opinion is wrong, but that’s me.
