Crowfall raises another million, previews collector’s edition

Miniatures? Color me interested.

While the central narrative of Crowfall focuses around an all-consuming Hunger that demolishes everything, Crowfall‘s development studio seems to be on the upswing rather than swiftly decaying. The studio has raised another $1 million in post-Kickstarter funding as well as attracted a small group of angel investors to put more money into the game. If you’re one of the people already in the pre-alpha testing (and more invites are going out regularly) or just watching from the sidelines, this qualifies as excellent news.

In the event you didn’t back the game but do want to play it once it’s out, you may want to pick up the game’s Collector’s Edition when it goes up for pre-order, which it will do soon. Said edition contains the game disc, a soundtrack, 21 miniature figures of the game’s archetypes for use in tabletop gameplay, an art book, a comic, two guest passes, three months of subscription, and an as-yet unannounced digital item. Lots of stuff, in other words.

blackcat7k Considering that the Collectors Edition was one of the rewards for backing, why is it a problem that they have come out and shown those backers what they are getting?

I backed it with enough for the physical Collectors Edition, pretty happy with the loot.  Love art books, and the miniatures are a bonus I was not expecting.

Good grief. 
Reading through these comments, I just don’t get why some of the longstanding readers on MOP have to line up in these camps and tear down games or companies they don’t plan on playing.
The MMO world, while by no means dead, is certainly not in its heyday. Can the people who purport to passionately support our choice of entertainment be a little less snarky?

KryptonianGL I agree – I’d readily use that option. Or perhaps even one with a payment plan – say, a few dollars a month. If MJ has an expected release date – or at least an open beta date of, say, a year from now, and someone like myself who has to pay for FOUR accounts.. (wife, two kids, eventually will have my six year old playing with us down the road!) – being able to break up the payments would be a welcome feature. :)
I’d probably end up putting $400 into accounts.. I just can’t do it all at once.

I have no idea what you’re talking about there: who’s doing that?
But as far as media manipulation goes: releasing press statements muliple times a week to tell us nothing more substantial than they’re working on the game. It’s not being done for “transparency”, it’s being done to generate digital ink from the specialty sites that are starved for news to report. In turn that ultimately generates more hits on their website, which drives funding.
As I said earlier: if EA or Activision did what Artcraft is doing, we’d all be screaming for their heads. Just because you like what they’re building doesn’t make the way they’re going about it okay.

sray155 Media manipulation, like, say, having a representative from your company do damage control in every article that pops up about your game?

Go figure, I was just discussing (in the comment section of a Camelot Unchained article) how I thought a layaway option like Crowfall’s would help CU bring in more backers. Not even 24 hours later, an article pops up stating that Crowfall has raised another million.
Granted the angel investors are most likely a large junk of that million, but still, I’m sure the layaway feature Crowfall is offering has helped. Curious as to how much so?
Mr. Jacobs, are you listening? Please, give us CU fans a layaway option for those of us on a tight budget. :)

Estranged I don’t know.  The Ashley Madison hack revealed like 99% of accounts were men, who were talking to men, who thought they were talking to women.
