Revival seeks more fans, plans investment into the game in 2016

    
11

On the verge of getting the Stage 1 client of Revival released, IllFonic posted a start-of-the-year newsletter to rally the faithful and encourage them to spread the word about the game. The team admitted that it had fallen behind on the planned development of the game due to the early cessation of the studio’s work on Star Citizen and the need to scrounge up more funds from investors and other studio projects.

Still, the letter is incredibly positive and gives Revival’s backers a reason to look forward to 2016. The team said that IllFonic will be getting out several other games this year which will give Revival “traction” and that fans can look forward to estate upgrade kits, gifting, and a larger player testing pool, as well as the aforementioned Stage 1.

“This game needs to be made because it is the thing that will radically change the landscape and mentality of gamers in the MMO space,” Creative Director Kedhrin Gonzalez wrote. “It means we’re still in the trenches, digging away, fighting and looking forward. It’s still a fight as we try to get more funds to get us to the our goals but we believe in this project and are going to keep going forward. We’re not in any state of worry, but I will admit that we’re not going as fast as I’d like… which is more of an annoyance, because I want to play this damn game already.”

Warking bayspoon In the 90’s and early 2000’s, everyone hated publishers for hamstringing developers and “ruining” games for profit. Now we’re at a point where developers support themselves with crowdfunding to avoid publisher influence, and everyone hates them for it. Just can’t win, it seems.

I would say… sex poop and pee at the same time? That will change mentality for sure.

People are supposed to believe in their product. I would rather here that, than to get a here’s another game conversation.
You really want to live in a world where people don’t feel like they are adding something new to society. What is he supposed to say?

I wouldn’t let paranoia of the past remove me from what I feel is the right mind set for a developer or publisher to have.

bayspoon Illfonic is a publisher, many of the heads of the team that is making Revival sit on the board for the company itself. Besides people would cry if they were running a Kickstarter and now they are crying for them making other games and not asking for a Kickstarter?

Humans…..

Can’t wait to see how this one turns out. I love the direction it’s currently headed!

Well. This game seems like it’s dead before it even began. Heh. I didnt know they were basically making 30 other things before being able to invest time/resources into this….I just figured they were taking forever.

Silverlock With the way the subscription option sounds (with the whole live-storytelling stuff ran by story masters or whatnot that will make each of the subscription servers have different storylines) I’d totally be game to subscribe, but yeah… having to choose your location so soon sucks, though I do very well understand why: you’re buying a house that pops up in the open game’s world.  You get direct ownership over a piece of land on that server that no one else will be able to get access to (unless there become ways to sell it or lose it).   Committing that early is a bit… eh…

I am definitely interested in backing the game, but I’d like to see some substance before I dive headfirst into it.

That’s the sort of statement which makes me wary investing in a project. At least concerning a game.

Really fed up with stuff like that.
