Kickstarter is Coming

Postby Consultant » Thu Feb 23, 2017 7:50 am

I'm sure most of you noticed the big timer on the landing page. We are planning to launch a Kickstarter on April 4th, so please mark you Calendars!

We will be putting more info into the Kickstarter section of the forums, but this is it. We need your help, and we are going to be asking for your support. That is how we move to Alpha, then Beta, then Launch.

Oh, there will be a special badge for donating during the first day of the Kickstarter! So don't be late.

How far are you along your schedule? In the schedule you said you wanted the following by the end of february:

2-3 NPC
Characters
Powers Preview
First FX
Powerset Preview

Would be nice to hear what's actually meant by each step if that's possible :)

Considering I've always been late to the party when it comes to games that I would wanna pledge towards.. This may be my first kickstarter project that I'll donate towards. I look forward to seeing what other information you guys have to offer on KS page.

Interested in seeing where this goes.

Especially since this is a complete carbon-copy of City of Heroes lol. Only difference is the map layout I assume :lol:

Not really. Obviously it's heavily inspired by and will include the elements that made CoH great, but things like AI, graphics and gameplay have come on along way since CoH's days, so I'd expect a good few differences too.

That video which was put out is catching buzz. I suspect a ton of backers. Goodluck, I am down to support.

Except ya know:
Completely different theme
Completely different Lore
More complex costume creator
Different AI
Different power sets

But yeah... basically the same. :roll:

It is a spiritual successor...not a clone/carbon copy.

Oh my gosh! My husband starting playing CoH a month after it came out and it took him two years to get me to try it.
After two seconds I knew I wanted to be part of SoH! Can't wait!
I am gonna need to stop for coffee before we head out for the battle. 8-)

As a professional builder of custom computers since 2000 I can honestly say that in many ways
many games and applications are actually becoming less demanding on a PC to get a basic "good experience."

Much more efficient (and low level) coding, cloud computing and the profit motive are all contributing
factors but if you want the "ultra experience" then it depends a lot on how it will be displayed.
A mid-range build is still sufficient for a 720p or 1080p monitor... if however, you
are rocking a 2k or 4k screen well then the cost and computing
power needed rise sharply in accordance. ;)

Sooo... is that a forum only badge, in-game badge or both for first day donations? :D
