02/23/15 - Today, And Tomorrow

Recommended Posts

Tommorow I guess I have to decide if Crowfall will be a fun competitve PvP game or just another outlet for people with the maturity of 10 year old kids to spend 18 hours per day greifing as many people as they can to feel superior.

 

Will the game be TOO hardcore for me (UO) or fun and immersive (DAOC)... (and yes, I know the game is supposed to be a new breed entirely).

Looking forward to know a lot of details more about the game with Kickstarter campaign launch, I looked down this game at the beginning  but the more I know the better it gets to my want-to-play MMOs. Keep it up and good luck!

Just downloaded the Kickstarter app just in case we lose power and internet due to the ice storm expected in Alabama!


Maybe it not about the happy ending. Maybe it's about the story.

 Looking forward to sharing this journey with the Crowfall team :D   Stay true to those core values and you will have a solid following of players. I truly believe if your able to merge the persistent world with one that ends, it could potentially shake up the MMO industry and help foster better development for future games.

 

 I have my alarm set for early morning as I want to be there when the Kickstarter campaign opens. In a way, by using Kickstarter your using the same methodology for Crowfall, by virtue that there is an "end point" to the campaign, yet it's for a "persistent" future of an evolving genre. ^_^

As I write this, less than 24 hours remains on the countdown timer at crowfall.com
 
We want to thank all of you, both here on the forums and elsewhere, for playing the game of “rampant speculation” with us.   We hope you enjoyed the process as much as we did.
 
The last two months has been enormously helpful -- more than we even expected!  You helped us refine our vision, taught us more about what you want, and came together as a community.  Crowfall is more than just a game; it is a statement of purpose.  A common belief that we could do something different in the MMO genre. 
 
We knew from the beginning that this game would not be for everyone.  In that light, we want to thank all of you: those who stuck with us, and those who did not.  We are looking for players who want a more intense, visceral experience... and our bet was that there would be enough of you out there to support this game.  
 
Tomorrow, we will start to see if we were correct. 
 
How did it go?
 
We launched the Play2Crush teaser site on December 22.  In the two months since, we attracted: 
 
                500,000+ web sessions
                180,000+ unique web visitors
                  42,000+ unique visitors last week
                         only 53% of visitors are from US/Canada/UK (which means we have a huge overseas following)
                  50,000+ web sign-ups
                  17,000+ forum members
                  62,000+ posts
 
Will that be enough?  We certainly hope so!
 
What happens next?
 
Tomorrow morning at 8AM CST, the countdown timer on crowfall.com will expire, and several things will happen:
  1. We will drop the final pieces of the puzzle.  You have most of the information already, but last few pieces will tie everything together.  We will also be including a lot of pre-alpha game footage, so you can see Crowfall is more than just design documents and concept art. 
  2. Taken as a whole, the website should give you a strong sense of our game vision... more than enough for you to decide if Crowfall is the right game for you.  We won’t have answers for every detail, because this game is still in development.  The rest will come into focus as we work with you, our audience, to build this game. 
  3. We want your input, your ideas, and your passion.  The discussion on exactly how Crowfall will be implemented will continue on our forums.  You can expect us to be VERY active, through development to launch (and beyond!)
  4. We also need your financial support.  Three weeks ago, we announced our intention to crowdfund this game.  Our kickstarter campaign begins tomorrow morning-- at 9am EST/6am PST.  We sincerely hope that you will support Crowfall, and let us build this game for you! 
 
Now for more details:
 
WHERE: the information will appear tomorrow morning on crowfall.com.  More details will also be released on several major game news sites.  These interviews, articles and stories will be linked directly from our site. 
WHEN: tomorrow morning and through the course of the day.  
 
IMPORTANT: there will be some limited tiers available for our "core following", i.e. the people who spend the most time on (and have been the most vocal on) our forums.  We know you guys will be the first to see the campaign -- as an FYI, backing early could pay off! 
 
As a final favor: if you like Crowfall, you can help make our campaign successful by helping us get the word out.  Kickstarter projects with early momentum get a lot more attention (both from the Kickstarter community, and with the press!) so...
 
- If you are going to back us, the sooner the better! 
 
- Please consider sharing us with anyone that you think might be interested in joining our community as a backer.
 
We have a great start on building our Crowfall community -- and with your help, we can make it even better.   Our goal for the last two month was to show you two things: one, that we are passionate about this game, and two, that want you to be a part this process.  We hope this is the beginning of a great, on-going relationship where we build the Crowfall experience together.
 
We appreciate your time and interest, even if you choose not to back us.  We are a small, experienced team with a ton of passion and a clear vision.  All we need is your help.
 
From Todd, myself and all the team here at ArtCraft Entertainment, thank you for engaging with us in our quest to make Crowfall a reality!
 
Gordon Walton

Ahhh damnit such an odd time for me, going to be at work by 8ish and no access to computer. Still very excited to see some game footage and Kickstart my very first project! Hope all goes well and goals are met, always prefer a developer not being held back by a publisher.

 

Time to spread the word!!!

 

Edit* So tomorrow at 9 do I just go to Kickstarter and search "Crowfall'? Never been on there before, thanks if someone answers.

I'm not very experienced with kickstarter. Will they be having packaged/amounts of money you can donate or do you just choose any random number like $28.65?

 

 The way kickstarter works (as you will soon see tomorrow), is they will have set packages with set prices, ie: usually starting around $20-25, and then it goes up into specific "tiers" with a title next to and a list of things you will get from supporting the game at that tier. 

 

 It's actually a really great experience and you may want to just look up kickstarter tonight, look through some of the projects they have and get a feel for how they go about setting up these tiers.

Yet is that sufficient? People have real life responsibilities and not everyone is up that early in the morning.

Isn't that contradictory?  "Real life responsibilities" but I sleep in.

 

Okay, but seriously, do you not have an alarm clock (cell phone, tablet, or physical)?  Set it to wake you if it's important.  If not, don't complain about missing it.

Edit* So tomorrow at 9 do I just go to Kickstarter and search "Crowfall'? Never been on there before, thanks if someone answers.

Basically, yes.  Or, I expect the KS page will probably be linked from crowfall.com

Generally it's specific amounts, but I have seen KS projects that have both.  You need to donate a specific amount (or over) to qualify for the rewards of that tier.

I sincerely hope they accept debit cards as well, as my master card is a debit card, and my visa doesn't have access to online purchases, and I don't feel inclined driving 50 kilometers to get that changed.

Kickstarter does take debit cards. That's how I pay since they dropped Amazon payments.
