Saga of Lucimia on its comms blackout: ‘We do not have a firm timeline on anything’

For well over a year now, we have been concerned about the state of Saga of Lucimia’s development — namely, if it’s even happening any more at all. Back in March, hope for the hardcore MMORPG’s future was dimmed by the announcement that founders and project leads Timothy and Joseph Anderson had parted ways with Stormhaven Studios after apparently ending their work on the game last September. The remaining developers said they were “full steam ahead” on the game.

So has there been any positive development since then? Or any mentions whatsoever of this missing in action MMO? Well, while Stormhaven promised “many exciting announcements on the horizon” back in March, that must be one mighty long horizon because no such announcements have emerged — at least out in the open.

As far as we know, the game is still testing under a closed alpha state. On Saga of Lucimia’s Discord, a studio rep said in May, “We do not have a firm timeline on anything. We had hoped to bring you an update at the first of this month but that had to be pushed back for a number of reasons.”

In a June 1st post, the same studio rep replied with a similar statement, saying, “There are no public updates as of this time. We are working as diligently as we can to get updates out to everyone but there’s a lot of things that need to happen behind the scenes before we can do that. Every day we get closer to being able to share more but these things unfortunately take time. Things are still under active development and we still test on a weekly basis with our current alpha backers.”

They probably had to re-think after the whole… well… last year had MOP being pretty brutal by accident (or not) to their grand design.

I suggest you add another tag for these games on Massively, “vaporware”, which would apply to any crowdfunded game which has been in development for too long with too little progress demonstrated through official YouTube channel until this game is released. Would be easier to search for such games. Especially when using Google to find information about such games.

What mmo development path is less reliable than a Kickstarter MMORPG? One that raised funds on Indiegogo.

Next layer down should be funding through Patreon.
