Crowdfunding Update

In order to properly introduce our Indiegogo Campaign, we thought that it was important to explain to our supporters and all those interested in Project: Gorgon on where we are in the development process and how our previous Kickstarter Campaign and our current Indiegogo Campaign fit into our overall plans. Project: Gorgon is currently in the alpha stage of development and with every update that we roll out we move closer to launching on Stream Early Access. Once we launch on Steam Early Access we will have officially moved from the alpha stage of development to early beta.

Last year we ran a successful Kickstarter Campaign which allowed players from around the world show their interest in Project: Gorgon. Since that time, we’ve made significant progress in setting a solid foundation for Project: Gorgon. We’ve designed, developed and implemented three new zones along with an entirely unique new player experience. We have implemented dozens of new skills and have added a large number of new items. We’ve added a new animal-friendly town for those players who wish to play one of our unique animal experiences. We’ve completely overhauled our power system and equipment bonuses. We completely rewrote our camera system. We’ve made significant changes to the quest system, added NPCS, guilds, guild missions, player vendors, dispensers, work orders, drowning and a lot of other features. In addition, we’ve recently introduced the Knife skill which is a precursor to the Fairy race and we are currently in the process of a complete GUI overhaul! There are countless other changes, but this should give you a solid understanding of the progress we are making since our initial Kickstarter campaign.

We’ve decided to run an Indiegogo Campaign for multiple reasons and in order to be transparent we wanted to share those with everyone. Since our Kickstarter Campaign, we’ve had people from around the world interested in supporting Project: Gorgon but the Kickstarter Campaign only accepted credit card payments. There has always been a high level of interest from those who would like to contribute via PayPal, but until now that hasn’t been an option. Indiegogo will allow interested parties to donate to Project: Gorgon using either a credit or PayPal so it opens that additional avenue of support to players who missed out on the opportunity the first time around. Additionally, Project: Gorgon is currently pre-revenue and since our last Kickstarter Campaign ended we have had no incoming revenue but we continue to incur development costs including server costs, contracted development help, contracted artists, and other costs related to the overall development of Project: Gorgon. Finally, this campaign will allow us to raise additional funds which will be used to implement upon existing, planned, and “wish list” game features.

We are extremely grateful for those who are able to donate to Project: Gorgon, but if you are unable to financially support us at this time it would be extremely valuable if you were able to post about Project: Gorgon on third party websites. Alternatively, mentioning Project: Gorgon on your social media pages is a great way to spread the word. We have a lot of important updates planned, including a complete re-write and graphical overhaul of the User Interface. A lot of exciting changes are on the horizon and we hope that you and your friends will join us in this adventure!

I went to the website to contribute but it wasn't clear to me how we would receive credit for our contribution. Maybe I just didn't get far enough into it, but how is the contribution tied to our account? I want the HORSE!!

Thanks for any light that you can shed on this.

We will, in the future, have a way to link your Indiegogo contribution to your Project: Gorgon account in order to assure that you get your reward(s)!

Do the pledge level rewards stack? I didn't see anything about that. I really look forward to housing and horses :)

Is there a limit to how many people can claim a perk?

If I donated the first time around, how will my second donation effect me as far as the rewards go? Do they stack? Does a higher donation a second time override the first set of rewards in favor of the higher value reward?

Thanks. Nice to see you guys doing this. I hope some of this money will go towards graphic upgrades, animations, spell effects etc... i feel the game is really hurting in that area. Gameplay, is, of course, amazing!
