Project Gorgon might not wipe before launch, adds Dwarf stretch goal

    
26

Big things are afoot for the Project Gorgon Kickstarter. The campaign, which passed its $20,000 crowdfunding goal this past Friday, put up two new stretch goals over the weekend to encourage further donations.

At $25K, the team will add a unique mount skin for backers, with those who donate $75 or more getting to try it out during testing. If the campaign hits $30K, all backers will be able to play the Dwarf race during the alpha and beta period.

In other news, the devs stated that they might not be fully wiping the servers between now and launch: “We currently have no plans for a complete server wipe at launch. However, we may reset certain skill levels and items related to the economy during testing and/or at launch. We want to encourage players to invest significant playing time during the testing phase and we view this as an incentive for them doing so.”

Ah, dwarves! I hope they come up with some original ideas for them too. I love their elf lore.

I am only just now learning about this game. It does sound pretty good… Considering backing it.

I hope this game sticks, I fondly think of Small Soldiers every time I see a headline about it.

Celestial Honestly, you won’t be spoiling anything if you did want to start now.  Game is entirely playable and plenty of content.  However, no harm in waiting either.

I pledged to one of the higher tiers on the Kickstarter, but I’ll wait until the game is at least in beta before playing.  I just have no interest in playing alphas.  I won’t mind starting later than everyone else.  Just means I’ll have a more polished experience.

PvE game.  Who cares if testers keep characters.  probably for the best since this way the newbie zone won;t be overflowed at release.

wolfyseyes Agree.  I’m a total graphics whore.  I never would have given this game a shot.  Positive word of mouth led me to download PG, and two hours in I was hooked.

CistaCista There will be housing though it’s not implemented in game yet.

Totally fine with no wipe.  This is not an MMO where players with longevity will have a huge advantage.  It just doesn’t matter due to the game design.  I actually think more devs should do this when the positives outweigh the negatives.  So many games that, by launch, I did not want to repeat the content and level back up again.

This news and the brief time I spent in the demo version made me toss money at the campaign. Rough as it is in this state, I cannot ignore its charms. And it plays damned solidly to boot.
