This week week in MMO crowdfunding, DDOCentral pointed us to a thread on the Dogma Everlasting Night time web site that sheds mild on what’s gone awry with the sport. The vampire MMO missed funding on Kickstarter again in 2015 and had begun taking preorders by 2016, however earlier this yr, its group supervisor resigned, leaving followers adrift. Now that CM has returned for a check-in and says the sport’s founder “principally referred to as it quits with out telling you guys and doesn’t plan to proceed.” Based on this rep, the sport’s devs had been in talks with White Wolf and Paradox (!) about cooperating on the sport, however the founder wasn’t having it. “Had I recognized this latter info earlier than leaving, I might’ve raised hell to [the founder] for passing up such a chance that was given,” he says. Yikes.
In the meantime, Shroud of the Avatar severed ties with its EU writer, Star Citizen posted a Q&A for the Anvil Arrow, Saga of Lucimia launched its novel and a brand new launch vid, Metropolis of Titans teased character era, Ship of Heroes honored Metropolis of Heroes’ deathiversary, we dived into Legends of Aria’s headstart, Struggle of Rights ready for early entry launch, and Temtem launched its backer alpha.
