It has been a very long time since we have heard anything out of the indie team behind Forsaken Legends, an ambitious procedural sandbox that caught some attention last year. However, the project went semi-dark in 2017 and we started to wonder what had happened to it.
The good news, according to a late October video: “The game is not dead. I’m not giving up on my dream.”
This comes from lead Bobby Baker, who delivers a 13-minute update on the project. He said that he had been working on another game earlier this year to help self-fund Forsaken Legends’ development. However, there have been significant obstacles, such as missing the opportunity to hire its main developer full-time and not getting enough funds from fans to go full-bore on the pre-launch.
Instead, Baker decided that it was best to downsize the scope of the game from a full-fledged MMORPG to a smaller, more party-based multiplayer experience. He is offering refunds to any backers who are not pleased with the new direction of the game. Get the full scoop on Forsaken Legends’ development below.
