Shadow’s Kiss devs interview vampires as their Kickstarter nears finish line

Even though it’s looking more like Christmas than Halloween around these parts, Shadow’s Kiss is taking its Kickstarter all the way to the bank. The blood bank.

The indie vampire MMO is about to finish a successful fundraising campaign, having raised over $67,000 of its initial $25,000 goal. This means that the community has unlocked a number of stretch goals, such as crafting, a ritual magic system, a soundtrack from Midnight Syndicate, and demolitions.

“We’re honored and a bit overwhelmed by the support from the community,” said Clockwork Throne President Thomas Sitch. “This Kickstarter is going to allow us to finally bring the world a vampire-themed MMO, with gothic story elements, horror, and the ‘coolness factor’ of being a vampire set on ruling the night.”

Flush with all of that future cash, the team apparently funded a trip to the city to interview real vampires during which all of the devs were killed. Or so the following mockumentary videos would have you believe.

Wow…watching the gameplay video on their site….this looks truly terrible even for a unity game.

In their defense, I like their spirit. Reminds me of the LARPers I played with back in the day.

But, yea… needs work.

Didn’t back it but I’m hoping to play the game when it comes out. Looks like it could be a blast.

Is there a stretch goal to kill all of management, too? (Just kidding, I’m actually a backer and want this game to succeed.)

If I thought they had even a 10% chance of releasing something decent I’d back them to but I have zero faith in this team to get it done, but man I’d be happy to be wrong.

I understand your skepticism, but I can afford to lose my money if it doesn’t work out. I just really want to see something in this genre, and hope that if this game makes even a small splash it might inspire a larger effort from a company with deeper pockets.

$67,000? Cloud Imperium couldn’t have made the mockumentary for that.

But they could buy the gear to make it with for that amount and buying the best gear will save you money in the long run. Unless of course better gear comes out later then you need to dump the old stuff scrap all the work you did with it and start all over again.

Still hoping we get a high quality World of Darkness mmo someday. These guys are onto something but seem to lack resources to do it justice.

I think people have been waiting for an “Underworld/Van Helsing” kind of MMO with playable monster races. Vampires, werewolves, undead, etc. The videos are cute but that picture above that seems to be actual game graphics… doesn’t look so hot.

Sorry but no. All I want is VTM Bloodlines the mmo or even just another game doesn’t even need to be an mmo.
