In the beginning of May, Intrepid Studios began their Kickstarter campaign. Within a matter of 12 hours, the goal of 750K was met and the campaign almost reached a million dollars within 24 hours.
Ashes of Creation was announced back in March and the buzz for the game. Within 12 hours of the Kickstarter campaign’s beginning it was already fully funded, today the team at Intrepid Studios have passed $2 million on Kickstarter. The game’s Kickstarter continues to make progress with an already impressive campaign by reaching $2 million. The game will now unlock a group of stretch goals outlined below. Halfway through the campaign, this is a very exciting time for backers. Creative Director Steven Sharif announced in a press release.
“Everyone at Intrepid Studios is so grateful for the unbelievable support we have received from the MMORPG community, and we are dedicated to bringing the genre a game that it can be proud of!”
Just because the project is funded does not mean Intrepid Studios are done. There’s a long road to release, and the studio will be hosting events, doing live broadcasts and talking with fans about the upcoming MMORPG revival during the remainder of the campaign. The Alpha and Beta stages are just months away, so there is still time to pledge. Intrepid Studios continues to unlock Stretch Goals with the help of their community. Here is a list of goals that they continue to work towards:
- Kickstarter exclusive dye colors-12000 backers
- New player race – $2.5 Million
- New Mount- 13,500 backers
- A new financial system will unlock-$3 Million
The new financial system will include an in-depth economic performance, metrics for commodities, trade routes, wars, and raids. Players will also be able to invest in Nodes, Guilds, and social organizations.
Set in a fallen fantasy world untouched by civilization for thousands of years, our players will rebuild, repopulate, and rediscover this uncharted realm. The world is everchanging with ruins, beasts, and cities that rise and fall. All weaved into a character system where players hold all the power, the fates of creation are yours to command.
