Dogma: Eternal Night nears the end of its Kickstarter campaign

Thus does the sun soon set.

The sun is setting on the Kickstarter campaign for vampire-themepark Dogma: Eternal Night, and at the time of this writing, the future doesn’t look particularly bright. With a funding goal of $100,000, the game has three days left to make nearly two-thirds of that total, currently sitting well shy of its mark at around $34,500. That doesn’t bode well for the remainder of its campaign period, although there’s always the possibility that it will rally.

The developers have posted updates regarding the design of the game’s character creator as well as the various abilities available to characters, although it’s short on details about what those abilities will be. If you’re on the fence about donating, you’re just about out of time, so you’ll have to decide if that’s a deal-breaker.

Paradox is bound to try to kill it anyway so.. no bright future indeed. Probably no future at all.

Silverlock Sorenthaz DeviateFish Well then, lucky for you that you waited, because this seems unlikely to live up to even mild hype, had it met the goal or not.

Wild_Phil I mean, If they had some kind of investment undisclosed and tied to the success of the kickstarter, they could have more but it seems unlikely. It seems like a scam or at best, a really naive business plan. Lots of people have great ideas and bad business sense. Either way, it’s no surprise people didn’t get behind this. Consumers may throw money at nonsense, but they by and large do have some sense, especially in the wake of high profile crowd funded failures and scams.

“vampire-themepark”
I just got a mental image of Vlad the Impaler in full armor holding cotton candy and a Pepsi while he gazes up in wonder at a rollercoaster.

Can we please stop with the vampires, now?

Armsbend DahkohtLewin So tell us how Divinity: OS was a scam? Or Pillars of Eternity? Wasteland 2? All the various Onyx Path books for World of Darkness? Other tabletop rpgs like Shadow of the Demon Lord? What about the tabletop boardgames?
Tell me, exactly, how those are all scams.

if you post a tough question on their forums about the kickstarter, it will quickly be taken down, this game really has scam written all over it.

Silverlock Sorenthaz DeviateFish Well if they had waited to do it in January or something that would’ve probably been better as well.  Trying to do a Kickstarter during the biggest part of the year for gaming (due to several high profile games being released in November and then all the sales around Thanksgiving/Christmas) wasn’t the best of ideas either.

Wild_Phil  I agree.

Again though, I would be interested to see someone make use of the engine and work that pathfinder online has. Rather than re-inventing the wheel, a company would do better to swoop in and save that with some investment instead….most of the work has been done for them and a fanbase is there and even paying subs. There are too many people in the industry trying to take people’s money for pipe-dream ideas that are basically just at the demo-tech stage. They almost always fall flat and end up with investors being fleeced.
