New game to watch: Crowfall

If you haven’t heard yet, there is a new game in the works by a new indie company(ArtCraft) and it’s called Crowfall! They’re in kickstarter right now so go back them. I’ve already pledged $175, of my fairly non-existent student budget, to get the Gold Patron level. 😀 They say it’s Game of Thrones meets Eve Online. I’ve been watching it for a while, but they recently started throwing out a lot more information. The more I hear, the more excited I am. This could really be the next game I call home for a long time. 🙂 I really love how the devs say, ‘This game isn’t going to be for everyone, we want a small group of passionate gamers.’ That is exactly what I want, not something that will please all the whiners, something that’s different, challenging and fun as hell.

There’s crafting, PvE and of course PvP. Basically the big point of the game is “Eternal Heros, Dying Lands”. Essentially your character and achievements will stay in the Eternal Kingdoms, but the Campaigns, will last for 1,3 or even 6 months at a time. The world will be destructible thanks to voxels. 😀 It also decays as the seasons change from spring, summer, fall to winter. When winter is over the world dies and the characters go back to the Eternal Kingdoms either VICTORIOUS or licking their wounds. Sounds absolutely badass.

I’m posting a few videos in case you haven’t seen them yet. They are all up on the Crowfall Youtube page.

I like the idea of being able to go nuts in the campaign worlds, destroy everything, knowing that it’s not forever and you can go home to your own kingdom. 🙂 The Archetypes aka classes, are very intriguing as well. Not a ton of into yet, but I’m really liking the look of the Druid and the Frostweaver. I’ll let you explore the website and discover that for yourselves.

Also, let me just say, I think the art is breathtaking! Absolutely gorgeous!

I hope you’ll have a look at their website, youtube, and kickstarter. Let’s make this game really special!
