    1000 to create a quest, but also says "all of the above" so does that also mean creating an NPC from scratch?
    edit: yes it does I missed the infographic before

    The game has to reach its base funding goal first before we'll consider that.

    I'll set a campaign up. If it doesn't reach its goal, it's all going to server funds.

    Nice to see so many backers. Hopefully, this turns out well so that when I get it at a discount on Steam I have fun playing it

    Discord is full time job because discord being discord you'll get your server full of groomers or memers or nsfw in no time. I think dev just does not want to "hire" volunteers or actually hire someone to monitor that crap. That way he control the flow with minimal upkeep time. I support his decision to get $ while at it too.

    I didn't realize DarkUnderlord was such a fan of this genre. Hopefully RatTower will have no problem giving copies of the game to people who donate to our fundraiser.

    That money could have gone towards upgrading the codex server.

    Weeeeell... I don't think we need to worry too much about the goals.

    Also you should probably somehow promote the fact that there is a campaign.

    Updated my pledge from 15 to 25. You deserve more money for this. I think you're selling yourself short. This deserves more than 15 Euros. This is really great.

    The demo is awesome, except my pc flying up 5 cm in the air cause of the fans spinning .There's also something odd happening at startup, i had a message error not finding VR headset..Launching steam vr get rid of the message, but sadly there's no vr mode. What an opportunity missed in the strecth goals , voice acting is unimportant , but having a vr mode on this is a lot more interisting.
    Now how a game done will a lone guy, looking better than underworld ascendant will release in a less than on year? We have quite a few nutjob developpers on the codex, like cleve and pierre, but is he the good kind of nutjob 100% focused on his work ?
    When its too good to be true , it usually is.

    I concur, I don't really care about voice acting. It's expensive and in the end doesn't add that much. Text is fine in a game like this. I would much prefer to see better animations.

    Voice acting is a dilemma for devs, if you don't have it certain segments of your possible audience just won't buy, but it really doesn't add anything to most games and the money could be spent elsewhere (hookers and booze)

    How does one make a decent, modern Ultima Underworld clone with a budget/initial goal of €16,500? I'm rooting for the guy (+ contractors) to make it happen, but Underworld Ascendant raised, according to its wikipedia page, $932,000 from crowdsourcing.
    Obviously its not as simple as 'more moneys = better game' but the financial asymmetry between the two projects make me skeptical about how 'vast' (and/or detailed in terms of content) the Five vast underworld zones will be.

    Most kickstarter projects of the smaller nature ask for a minuscule amount of money either by already being half-complete, the devs having no clue or the devs knowing they won't get the real amount they need and using it for major issues to solve, like an OST or some better visuals

  23. He explained that the money is required to pay contractors for music and other stuff which he cant do himself. He is doing programming and most of game art (modeling, ui, writing and stuff) by himself. The game is almost finished.

    You can actually join the discord right now:
    https://discord.gg/nMPfyXqBvj
    I just don't advertise it much because of the additional work its moderation would mean.

    Inner Sanctum is a locked channel for internal dev updates, previews, and perhaps a couple of other goodies on the way.
    Also, a convenient way to communicate with €65+ backers.

    I would have loved physical rewards but decided against them to keep things manageable.
    I still have some templates for a box though. Maybe we can work something out there.

    I'm hoping for drone-like ambient loops and atmospheres for the music. Arx did fine with those, Thief did too, despite being a different genre, Grimrock as well.

    Decidedly much cheaper too, compared to multi-instrument arrangements and orchestral-style compositions.
