Crowfall Kickstarter

Today is the official Kickstarter opener for Crowfall.

They’re off to a whopping good start!  Good for them.  I watched the video and they hit all the right notes.

Although everyone says it, I believe these guys when they say they want to make an awesome game they and you will want to play. 

I’m unfamiliar with Todd Coleman, but Gordon Walton, Raph Koster, Thomas Blair, I’d follow those guys anywhere.  They’re brilliant, they play the games, they enjoy interacting with the players, and they all have that rare quality, integrity.

As they say, see you in game.

Crowfall in the News

Here’s a nice article from Eurogamer on newly arisen MMO-to-be Crowfall:

12 Archetypal Classes with the ability to distribute Attribute Points at character creation is pretty interesting!

The interview with Thomas Blair, lead designer about Crafting is what really sent me over the side.  I appreciated how he talked about playing crafting in many games, and really looking hard at what they did well and what not. From there comes the desire to make a game that is engaging and creative for us.   I can’t recall the company that used to have the motto “For Gamers by Gamers” or something near that.  That thinking is exactly what a game needs. People who like to play creating the sort of game they themselves would like.

Massively has a story and video with game design guru Raph Koster about his consulting work on Crowfall.  Another reason to have high hopes for the game is the inclusion of this brilliant fellow.

Blessing of Kings is interested but a bit cautiously

Keen and Graeve, deep DEEP Galaxies fans, had some nice things to say.

Raph Koster makes his own announcement of his involvement

Crowfall: Deep Cover

I just found out about Crowfall, an upcoming MMO today.  The key thing for me is the crafting system.

Yet, the game is apparently full PVP.  In order to get the crafting life of my dreams, I need to knock off some people and loot their pixelated bodies.  I can do it if I must.
Now I’m thinking I need to create a so-not-me persona on their forums.  First, I need a good PVP name.  I can make up names all day long.
All of these seem brilliant but I can’t decide between them:
  Might need to play some PVP so I can channel my inner bloodthirsty me.
