Artcraft began a Kickstarter campaign at 9:00 am Eastern Time (NA) which has already (10:00 am Eastern Time) raised nearly $140,000 toward its goal of $800,000. Some of the discounted early bird backer tiers are quickly filling. I'm not usually an early backer of projects. I prefer waiting to see how things shape up or if they materialize before tossing my hat and paycheck into the fray. However, the talent behind this game along with the unique concept, solid press and great communication from the developers is persuading me break my cautionary habits. Artcraft is projecting a December 2016 launch with 3 Alpha and 3 Beta periods, each lasting approximately a quarter. Alpha is expected to start this summer. Take a look at Crowfall http://www.crowfall.com And, the Kickstarter http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/crowfall/crowfall-throne-war-pc-mmo I will probably indulge in a early bird discounted tier this morning before they disappear. At this rate it looks like they'll reach their goal in the next few days.
