Vampire MMO Shadow’s Kiss shows off upcoming Steam page and confirms soft launch date revisions

Do you remember Shadow’s Kiss? If you don’t, just know that it’s a mature horror-themed vampire MMO that we first started covering in 2016, when it first arrived on Patreon for funding and then hit Kickstarter a year later, landing its funding goal from the very start and ending with 300% funding and a number of stretch goals achieved. After that, updates were coming fast and thick for a while, but then things slowed down to the point we wondered whatever happened to it in June of last year, until the devs at Clockwork Throne Studios unveiled plans for a Steam early access launch this summer.

That all leads us to the game’s latest Kickstarter update post, which offers a couple of looks at the as yet unreleased Steam page for the game as well as word that the devs are working on bug fixes, polishing, expanded social zones, and more quest content. The post also confirms that the MMO’s soft launch timing will need to be revised, though what that timing will be has yet to be pinned down. As before, backers will still be getting their entitlements when the early access begins.

This doesn’t look good and no idea why they’d post something that looks that laggy unless that’s how it actually plays? If so, ooof, that’s going to make combat extremely tedious, and if not, why on Earth would you post something that looks this bad?

This sure looks bad, and sadly, feels unlikely to release in any state acceptable for the backers, given the development’s history.

Yup, got a bad feeling about this one.

A huge draw for me to vampires is the World of Darkness. Without it, i wouldn’t have the same passion. VtM made Vampires *believable*. A shadow cospiracy immortalized by controlling paranoid social leeches? Yes, please.

Then, this shows up and i see angel wings. I think i’ll pass.

I’ll cry myself to sleep until a WoD/Shadowrun MMO.

My partner at the time was working on the WoD mmo. He was in the first big wave of CCP layoffs in Atlanta that heralded the end of the development. They truly had something that would have been pretty remarkable in the works. :(

I’ve always said that Shadowrun would make for an AMAZING mmorpg. The setting, races, rule mechanics – all perfect for mmo customizations and systems, and that it’s such a mission based playstyle would translate flawlessly into an mmo. I doubt it’ll ever happen, but I can dream.

Game about bloodsuckers financed by crowdfunding… a little on-the-nose, yeah?

I guess Moonguard will be a little more empty soon….

Makes me think about there still was a World of Darkness MMO in development :sadface:

Cannot really see the appeal in this game, will take a look on their steam page once it is out.

Yikes I feel like I could whip this up myself in Unity engine. Looks worse then the 9 yr old cell phone MMO Dark Legends by Space Time Studios.

Holy crap, I was hoping this would look better. All their videos look like it is running at 15fps. I’m confused. I want a gothic horror MMO so bad but nothing released has ever jived with me.

The game may not be the best looking thing around, but they’ve got jokes y’all.
