Phoenix Project reached the Kickstarter goal

October 7, 2013 Comments off

Just visited the Kickstarter page for the Phoenix Project/City of Titans and they have already reached their goal of $320000, with 27 days left of their Kickstarter campaign…At the time of writing they are $10000 past their goal and I have no doubt they will get much more than that.

Congratulations to the Missing Worlds Media team!

Phoenix Project starting kickstarter in overdrive

October 6, 2013 Comments off

The Phoenix Project is one of the projects that started after City of Heroes closed down, with the goal to make a spiritual successor to the beloved game.

A company called Missing Worlds Media was formed and many people from the City of Heroes community has offered their services to help out with the project. The game has a name now, City of Titans. On October 2nd, a Kickstarter campaign started with the goal to get some funding for the development work, primarily for software licences for the tools to make the game.

At this time of writing, the campaign has almost 2000 backers and about 87% of the goal of $320000 has been reached, after less than 5 days – 28 days to go.

As a long time fan of City of Heroes, supporting a spiritual successor is a no-brainer for me; I also put in a higher amount than any previous campaign I supported through Kickstarter.

I do hope that they will succeed, both in terms of making the game and that it will become commercially viable. Even if it falls short in some areas, I am more than happy to help fund a small part of the vision that these folks strive for.

Good luck with the Kickstarter and the Game!
