We are still truckin' along!

We've also been running a small Thunderclap campaign that we're hoping would give a bit of a boost to our Kickstarter campaign. To everyone here who has supported us in getting Greenlit, we hope that you might take the time to help share our campaign around.


Thanks again for your support - we've got a long road ahead of us but together we'll get there.

We are Greenlit!
Description
Release date: Mid 2018
Hello Steam!
This is the big moment our team has been working towards for over year. Not only is our Kickstarter campaign now live, we are also putting our work here on Greenlight. Forged of Blood is an ambitious project, and we've made sure to prototype everything we set out to do in the first six months of production. Now... a year later, we are ready to showcase our work to the world.

If you like what you see, please help us and support us on Kickstarter and spread the word! Our Kickstarter page has a ton more information that we just can't fit here and our pitch video will help explain some of our design goals and philosophies. Please check it out and let us know what you think!



Forged of Blood
As a Fantasy Turn-based Tactical RPG, Forged of Blood places the fate of an entire world on your every decision. From an impressive array of character building options to one of the most expansive true spellcrafting systems ever made for video games, Forged of Blood will begin an exciting new chapter in the Fantasy Tactical RPG genre. Engage in challenging tactical combat as you find your place in a morally grey fantasy world and decide whether the ends will ultimately justify your actions.





Key Features:
Tactical Fantasy: Take to the field with sword and shield or cast powerful spells in deep turn-based tactical combat against monsters and men.

Classless Warfare: With 9 unique weapons and a vast magic system, Forged of Blood lets you build your characters the way you want - without being constrained by the typical tank/DPS/healer roles.

Science in Magic: Explore the freedom and mysteries of one of the most complex and unique magic systems ever attempted in video games. With 60 Effects, 18 Effect Modifiers, and 18 Global Modifiers to choose from, the possibilities for spell crafting are vast.



Kingdom at War: Command up to three parties of heroic characters on the strategic layer in your fight to reclaim the empire you lost.

Meaningful Choice: Your choices matter. From character building to your choices in the game narrative, your decisions will reverberate across the Strategic and Tactical layers of the game.

Your ends; your means: In a world of grays and unique perspectives, it is up to you to decide what is “right” and “wrong” for the future of Attiras. Forged of Blood will introduce a new Tri-Axis Personality Plot (TAPP) system in lieu of the traditional Good vs. Evil scale common in most RPG settings.

Current Schedule:
Pre-production: February 2016 – July 2016
Production: July 2016 – October 2017
Crowdfunding Round: March 2017
Final-production: October 2017 – Mid 2018

@Negatus,

For most part, "all or nothing" approach makes sense in crowd funding. This is to protect the backer because if you back a project under a certain promise, and they deliver something else, well, I'd certainfly feel cheated. It's like buying and expecting a double cheeseburger and get a normal cheeseburger instead.

We also think KS is a more "reputable" crowd funding platform. Being a new studio, the onus is on us to prove that we are not a scam.

We certainly won't get any money if KS does not meet its target goal, but I feel this is to our fan's benefit and to our long term benefit. Our backer certainly won't be happy if we got a partial funding and thus could not fulfil all our promises as stated in our KS page. A happy customer is the key for long term success of the studio.

Thanks

Alright. Good to know, but now I'm curious why you chose the "all or nothing" approach to crowd-funding. I really hope you make your goal but if you don't the project will get nothing from Kickstarter to improve its production values..
