Is this a mobile game? PC? Couldn't find that out anywhere.

God this looks bad if its a PC game.

He should heavily consider making an Offline-Only Game.

We should "kickstart" one of those design tiers and do a group design.

I can't troll another fake $10k pledge on this one or I bet kickstarter would ban my account for repeatedly doing so.

It would have to be PC based on the "hosting your own server on your machine".

Yeah $800k AND that's after the $1million they've already invested!
Haha! I didn't know about the $1 Million - I didn't read that far into it. You have to be kidding me! $1.8 Million for a 2D pixel top down ARPG that looks like it came directly from 1989? NO wonder why nothing got done at SOE and was bleeding cash. I knew things were ridiculous over there before Dyabreak bought them, but holy cats if this is an example of the amount of money bloat they were siphoning from SOE at the time, it's no wonder they went belly up on everything.

800k & release by october 2016? So only one year dev-time? Wow, Smed, why dont we have EQ 3/4 and 5 by now?

I will probably put in 25$ to help them. If they can get it done by end of 2016 then great, and if not then just to see them crash and burn will be worth it...

Makes me want to post his EQN comments all over the KS page. Hard to believe anything that comes out of that dudes mouth.

Does anyone in that video know what to do with their hands?

Feel bad for the Senior programmer... they cut his segment into a million pieces.

I don't know about this game. Not sure how it will go with people hosting their own servers. I guess it could work out but not sure how this will take off. Interesting to see Bill Trost though...

I am more astounded it takes $1.8 million to create a hack jawed 1996 ARPG. Seriously? I mean Jesus. 944k allowed Larian to Self Publish Divinity Original Sin and that was actually a good game!

Draegan should do an interview with Smed to "promote" the Kickstarter


Ut should invest and do his own server after release. Show Smed how a real server is run

He's got the right people working on it IMO.. Hunley is a solid TD, Trost will be a good CD, and Barker as UI engineer is interesting, but I'm sure he can do work on design as well. I think they can make it work.. It's an interesting idea to me.
