    This is how fresh people with no track record, no extensive resume (i.e., who can't drop names or titles) should do a Kickstarter. Show us a video of working, running beta.

    Antharion, because who doesn't want their player characters to look like big-headed mutants?

    I don't know why it got such bad rap in here but it looks quite decent, it only has 8h left in the clock and it may flop. Given that my rep here is at a historical minimum I'll just post this here and embrace the purifying flames.

    No 'may' about it -- it's been stalled about $4k short for days. It's not making it. There's a thread on the News forum. In short I think they should relaunch, get more publicity (seems like the Codex is the only site they engaged or that bothered to acknowledge them), and seriously considering lowering the game tier to $10. Not a commentary on the quality of their product but when Fargo offers his game for $15 then it sorts of sets the market price.

    Not my kind of game, but it looked pretty cool, sad to see it fail short only a small amount and with such a modest funding goal.

    EDIT: Yeah agreed, indies pretty much have to sell their games for $10 on kickstarter.

    EDIT: It failed :(

    I gave it a bad rap because it was lacking creativity in the writing department and looked like it was trying to replicate the Exile/Avernum experience, and well, those games already exist. If you want me to preorder on faith you have to promise me something special-but-feasible. :)

    They should have aimed lower. At least we have Jeff Vogel games.

    So, it's July 13. When is this coming out? Their recent update was for backers only. If anyone backed, could you share the update?

    Don't get me wrong, I'm excited for the game, I pledged the first time when it didn't make it, and I'd rather he takes his time.

    But this is the codex and I need brofists because gamification.

    There's a sweet piece of music too, but you should've pledged if you wanted to hear that!

    Thanks bros. I am really looking forward to this. I know delays are common in gaming for both indies and AAA+ games, and they typically predict early dates in Kickstarters because a date a year ahead of the predicted date could result in fewer backers, but still this is a pretty big delay. I wish they had just finished up the original game they planned and then released the mega additions (extra dungeons and towns) as downloadable expansion packs. Kickstarter backers would get them for free, the rest would pay a couple of bucks for it. They could even add in extra spells and stuff into them.

    The only reason I am kinda whining is that with so many great games seemingly coming out by the end of this year and all next year, I was hoping to have already played Antharion by then (basically, a sort of appetizer to the main course of :incline:)

    Anyhow, have they started the Beta test yet?

    I don't know, there hasn't been anything about it in the kickstarter updates.
    And if they contacting eligible backers personally, I didn't pledge high enough to make it into the beta.

    Update 27 was just put out~!

    Progress Update 8/27 (Backer Only)

    So I'll be playing it sometime next year.
    They also briefly go over what they've been up to and working on, unfortunately like their prior updates, it's very light on images and details.

    Interesting choice with Charisma there, I approve since the prior information we've received about the "barter" skill pretty much painted it as a total dump stat.
    It sounds great, almost can't wait. I'm a bit sceptical of the will-o-the-wisp feature though, would need to see how it plays out, it can be nice if it's either late-game or rather gimmicky, or it can ruin exploration to some degree.



    They also introduce what I surmise is a new feature they're relatively proud of.
    Of course, if you want to know what it is, you should've been a backer!
    :codexisfor:

    no spellcheck, will-o-the-wisp is not spelt as "run-of-the-mill"

    Love that "new" feature. Reminds me of traveling around Ultima 6. :thumbsup: Overall, this game is looking very good (has a charm all it's own) and is just one more KS game I'm looking forward to playing!
