Ship of Heroes posts a Kickstarter countdown on its main page

Well, I mean, this is transparent.

Whenever we here bring news about a new indie title, there’s always at least one person asking in the comments about when the Kickstarter is starting. It’s not even cynical at this point, just a predictable eventuality. Of course, usually the answer to that question is unclear, since most teams announce the Kickstarter date around the same time the Kickstarter actually starts. Ship of Heroes has opted instead to launch a Kickstarter countdown on its main page, so you can see exactly how long it will be before the game launches its Kickstarter project.

As of this writing, there’s a bit over a month left on the countdown timer, although the lack of any official announcements about the timer may or may not indicate that it’s an intentionally long period. I suppose we’ll see in about 40 days after this writing, yes? It’s something to mark your calendars for, at least.

LOL, City of Zeroes was a web comic that was actually sort of funny. Didn’t last too long though.

I urge all of my fellow refugees of Paragon City to be careful with this. My ‘Spider Sense’ is tingling for some reason. I’m not saying don’t do it. I’m saying please do some research and only send what you can afford to lose.

I really don’t want future Peregrine Falcon to come back tell us all “I told you so.”

I really hope at least one of these ‘successors’ turns out good, and that they avoid the class-based system of CoH that made super stupid characters like the ultra buff tankers that hit like wet noodles.

Class based + superhero = no thanks.

I think Champions Online may be the closest thing you’ll get to that. Personally, I *want* a class based hero game.

I am starving for a decent superhero MMO! I sooo miss CoX and this looks like it might be similar.

I’ll have to keep an eye on this one and just might drop some cash down. We’ll see.

After the fiasco of so many other Kickstarters I will say pass.

40 days till the kickstarter begins. Then 3-5 years before the game is playable and/or launched?

Per the usual time to develop an MMO, 2-4 more years (considering it’s been under development for a year)

A year or two for alpha. After that….

I will admit their concept is interesting and the website is very professional. Have no clue how far along they are versus the other projects.

Hey, this is better than Smed half-assing his Kickstarter. They are creating a proper hype scenario. I may not be interested in playing, but have to give them some cred for having a marketing plan.
