After smashing expectations by completely funding its $750,000 Kickstarter campaign in the first 12 hours, Ashes of Creation wants to keep this crowdfunding momentum going for the next month. Enter stretch goals.
The first three stretch goals for the campaign have been posted, starting with tavern “games of chance” being included if a cool million is raised. At $1.25M, enhanced mounts with group functionality will be added, and even more naval content (additional ships and underwater environments) is possible if the $1.5M barrier is breached. Didn’t know the game had naval content? Neither did we — until now!
Intrepid Studios CEO Steven Sharif thanked fans for the support so far: “I cannot fully express our sincere gratitude for the overwhelming support that you have shown us. Today we funded over 750k for Ashes of Creation in less than 12 hours, making this project one of the fastest in history. I started Ashes of Creation out of a passion for the MMORPG genre, and a love for our community. That love has never been stronger than it is right now. I promise you that we will not stop, until Ashes becomes the new standard of gaming. With love from everyone at Intrepid Studios, thank you.”
Let’s start an office pool in the comments: How high do you think the Kickstarter campaign will go before all is said and done? I’m banking on $2 million.
