Crowfall preps core combat test, commits to raising $1M from additional investors

With a large roster of potential classes, how will Crowfall balance it all? By starting small, of course. The devs wrote a new post today explaining how they will begin testing the game’s combat systems by picking a trio of classes on which to experiment: the Confessor, the Knight, and the Legionnaire.

“We’ll be concentrating on the basics of combat (hitting opponents, movement speeds, powers, physics interactions) and holding off for now on things like environment destruction, caravans, siege mechanics, etc.,” ArtCraft wrote.

The studio also posted a founder’s update with several business notices. The biggest item is that ArtCraft is selling $1 million in ownership shares in the company to raise additional funds for the game. There are also notices concerning upsales, website localizations, and new payment methods.

The guy who’s always talking the jive needs to once in awhile put some neosporin on his knees. Wow

Chaosseed Unless you have the money and development team of someone like Blizzard behind you, you are better off making a niche game. A game that does certain things fantastically, rather than a whole bunch of things pretty mediocre.

TierlessTime Agree, but I think the successful Kickstarter gives the developer more leverage to say, ‘Hey this is what the customers want and we already have this many interested people who are willing to pay to show this’.  Would have been a different story if they just went to the publisher straight away.
More money = more polish for the final game.

Armsbend Estranged Except that you aren’t just donating, you get a copy of the game for doing so, and you help them to maintain creative ownership rather than having to bend to the will of a publisher. It is more like a pre-purchase.  It also lets them gauge support for the proposed product.

This will be followed up by additional ways to get you to spend more money on things you can not yet enjoy in the game.

Armsbend Estranged and It’s still far better than relying on corrupt publishers.

Estranged The direct appeal is just so they can maintain as much ownership as possible.  People who donate to developers are so very ridiculous.

“We realize that this game won’t be for everyone. ”
, but yet they’re trying to get money from anyone.

Idk, it doesn’t sounds like they’re making a niche game.
:S

Snky Reihen  They said a while back that investors to finish off what was needed to finish making the game was something they would do.

This isn’t news to those of us following it.

Reihen So needing at least $1M to complete the game which had stretch goals doesn’t sound like feature creep set in?
