They have five days left. Why bother adding them now?

SonOfCapiz April 2nd, 2013 13:18

pity that mod tools are so low (high) on the list. With that in the hands of the talented, you could easily (eventually) get the content listed as stretch goals

SpoonFULL April 2nd, 2013 13:58

It is a shame that they did not show these stretch goals earlier instead of the pets and music instruments earlier stretch goals. I would be happy if they reach 1.5M, 1.6M and 1.7M goals.

Those stretch goals sound amazing, I hope they pull them all off.

Moorkh April 2nd, 2013 15:07

5 days - and still I have not seen anything that feels like an Ultima to me… :(

Hopefully they reach some of the goals…kickstarters generally make most of their money at the start and the end.

Talking to LB in chat right now heh.

killias2 April 2nd, 2013 15:38

I'm not sure how Spoony got on here, but I'd love to see that interview.

A feature similar as in RoA BoD which I liked and made the world more alive.

Yeah well it better make another 1.5 - 2 million just to reach the goals. Don't see that happening but who knows. That mod or game editor is the best option on there.

The editor alone would make the game worth it. I'm still using NWN and NWN 2 to make and play mods.

I just cancelled my $25 pledge, if anybody want to pick it up.

Wise move. I knew there was a reason you have all that gray hair. :p

Well think you guys are going to miss out…but whatever.

Miss out on what? If it ends up being a good single player game in the vein of the earlier ultimas they can just buy it when it comes out. Far too many UO-like features for my tastes so I am waiting to see how it all pans out. Farming/mining and taming animals holds no interest to me.

CrazyIrish April 3rd, 2013 17:17

I hate the way these huge lists of stretch goals have become the crowdfunding standard. Video games aren't a list of features. What makes or breaks a game is how those features are woven together. To pull it off you need a cohesive vision. The only vision I see here is something rather different.

CelticFrost April 3rd, 2013 19:03

Wish they would post what the goal was to make an Ultima game. There is the real question.

they have said that….I think numerous times. Guess you missed it.

SpoonFULL April 4th, 2013 00:23

Rune_74: did they mention anything about an 'all digital' tier for the 5 episodes?

That has been bandied about a lot….I think it is coming…I'm debating on getting the one with the map…

I encourage some of you to hit the chat they have on their site they come on and answer a lot of questions you ask…

Thanks, contemplating the same teir as well, but I don't want to pay the additional shipping/taxes as I live outside the US. Hope to see an update from them about this soon.
