Reviewing My Kickstarter History

March 20th - via:
With some Kickstarter campaigns of interest running of late, like the Massively Overpowered funding campaign and the much-talked-about Crowfall campaign, I decided to look back at the projects I had funded to see how the whole Kickstarter thing has treated me. (Read More)

Kickstarter Game Developer Haiku Collection

September 2nd - via:
It’s a bit of a tradition that whenever I interview someone for Cliqist I ask them to put together a brief haiku to describe them, their company, or their game. Since we’re celebrating the one year anniversary of Cliqist this week I figure it would be as good a time as any to look back at some of them. All the haiku’s were written by the person being interviewed, and are listed in the order in which they appeared on the site. Some are great, some not so much, but each is interesting in its own right. (Read More)

Make My MMO: May 18 - May 24

May 24th - via:
This week's MMO crowdfunding news was dominated by a familiar trio of gamemaking heavyweights as well as an upstart studio bent on updating the magic of Ultima Online. Star Citizen announced a date of May 29th for its dogfighting module Arena Commander thing, while fellow space sim sandbox Elite: Dangerous released its Alpha 4 client, posted a new progress video, and targeted the end of May for its next major release. (Read More)

Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen restarting with volunteer team

May 4th - via:
The last major update posted regarding Brad McQuaid's dream MMO, Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen, didn't leave a lot of ambiguity. The game had no prototypes to be shown off, it had failed at its Kickstarter campaign, and the funding raised by fans had completely worn out. So you'd think that would mean it was the end of the road, but instead McQuaid has posted an update on the state of the game's development, and according to the post, the team is being rebuilt and progress will be made. (Read More)

The Game Archaeologist: The danger of expecting lightning to strike twice

April 12th - via:
It's no secret that many of the more successful Kickstarter projects over the past few years have heavily capitalized on player nostalgia, brand names, and former dev gods who are back for another round. The formula for drawing in the big bucks seems to be the following: Take something players hugely loved back in the day, dangle the concept of a sequel (spiritual or otherwise), and promise some measure of iterative improvement. (Read More)

Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen a Month Past Kickstarter

March 24th - via:
This isn’t Kickstarter any more. You let go of your money the moment you click the final button. There are no goals to meet or critical mass to achieve. That last bit seemed like an important tidbit to me. There is an aspect of “we’re all in this together” when it comes to Kickstarter, where success means a lump sum for the team and failure means nobody gets billed. It protects the early enthusiast from handing over his money too soon, only to find out that the project isn’t popular enough. So I was curious to see how well Pantheon would do once it lacked that aspect of the Kickstarter campaign. (Read More)

Funding Unsuccessful for Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen on Kickstarter

February 27th - via:
Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen, an MMO game crowdfunding on Kickstarter, set out to raise $800,o00 over 40 days but closed their campaign having raised $460,000 – far short of their intended objective. The campaign rifled out of the gate raising over $50,000 in the first twenty hours of the project. Pantheon had been widely anticipated and expectations were high for a solid success. Stretch goals were set at the very beginning of the launch as confidence was high. The Game category is very popular on Kickstarter and is the most successful segment of their business having raised around $190 million to date – besting the 2nd most successful category – film and video. (Read More)

Pantheon Rising From The Ashes

February 27th - via:
Pantheon, the ambitious MMO from famed Everquest designer Brad McQuaid may not have been as successful as planned raising funds on Kickstarter, but that doesn’t mean it was a flop, it raised almost half a million dollars. After raising $460,000 it must have been a bit disappointing to see all that money float away though, such is the nature of Kickstarter’s all or nothing campaign model. (Read More)

Brad McQuaid Discusses Pantheon : Rise of the Fallen

January 28th - via:
Brad McQuaid knows a thing or two about games; specifically, those we play online. Steeped in in the ways of the early 90′s MUD scene, Brad got a job at Sony where he made his name with the enourmously successful EverQuest. EverQuest will forever be known as the MMO that got most fans of the genre hooked, and Brad is the one that bestowed it unto them. Since the original EverQuest Brad has worked on a number of successful titles, but our focus today is on one that isn’t out yet, Pantheon : Rise of the Fallen. (Read More)

Pantheon Calls On The Spirit Of EverQuest

January 15th - via:
My only memory of EverQuest was buying it the day it launched. I played it for a total of two hours that following week. The idea of the game was enchanting, even if the execution was lost in a horrendous foreshadowing of the problems online gaming would have from that time on. Even after abandoning the game I had the urge to explore its expansive world full of magic and mystery, experience the joy of being tormented by those with more free time than myself, and see first-hand how the game grew. Unfortunately for my fantasy alter ego, the Dreamcast was released not long after EverQuest’s initial launch and there was no looking back. (Read More)
