EverFeud’s Kickstarter has been canceled, but the devs say they’ll ‘pursue other options’

At the tail end of July, we covered the Kickstarter of EverFeud, a PvP-focused MOBA/MMO hybrid that sought $105,000 to fund development. Unfortunately, the Kickstarter lasted only a week, as developers canceled the effort with just four backers and $81 pledged.

“We have decided to cancel the Kickstarter due to lack of interest,” the PSB Entertainment developers wrote on Twitter. “We are pursuing other option[s] including partnering with other developers.”

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that development will continue, as the Kickstarter originally noted that the game’s founder had already invested $100,000 in the project and that he wouldn’t “stop until EverFeud is a reality.” PSB had described the sub-hopeful title as a hyper-competitive “arena and battleground-styled multiplayer PVP game set in a fantasy world where might and magic hold sway,” a game “built by PvPers for PvPers,” with no levels and no grinds; instead, it is set in an MMO-like world with battleground factions rather than FPS-style lobbies with gobs of customization, classes, and races.

Clearly a case of the wrong idea at the wrong time.

PvP, because making AI for PvE is hard and expensive.

The day your Kickstarter launches, you really have to hit the ground running. Either there wasn’t enough reach-out to the gaming community or the pitch didn’t resonate.

Never even heard of it, and I consider myself well versed as the one the dozens of mmo friends/guildies of mine come to for information on games. That right there tells you there was a lack of coverage or marketing before the KS.

“It shouldn’t surprise anyone that development will continue, as the Kickstarter originally noted that the game’s founder had already invested $100,000 in the project and that he wouldn’t ‘stop until EverFeud is a reality.'”

sunk cost fallacy, here we go. there was no interest in the kickstarter because the gaming market doesn’t need another moba of any sort, mmo hybrid or not. just cut your losses at 100k and move on.
