Kickstarter: Hadron's Forge


#1

for you space nerd / open world / sandboxy type folks, here’s a new campaign… looks like its from a couple of Nasa chaps, so odds are, there will be a fair amount of “realism”… :smile:

Space exploration, mining, building, RPG sandbox game with an epic story line and a healthy dose of real space science.


#2

Summed me up, right in 5 words and two slashes… :’)


#3

Just like starmade, only better, for some reason… You have to pay?
This was a question anser it @SteveAdamo


#4

Right - had to back this - its the right thing to do!


#5

Makes face of extreme giddiness YES!


#6

well, im stoked you all seem to like it… i only hope they get some good publicity in order, as they need a healthy surge in pledges to meet their goal…

yes, its a campaign to raise money for development… you have to purchase a copy… :smile:


#7

Well I did pledge, as this advanced Minecraft in space looks pretty interesting to me, but those guys need to advertise more. At this pace they’ll never get funded.


#8

i havent pledged, but i just have such admiration for folks who put in all on the line, i cant help but root for them! :smile:

and yes, unless they manage to get some significant PR/tweet momentum, the campaign might be doomed… i fear they may have set the target a bit too high…


#9

Well one thing is for certain, if a KS project wants to be successful it has to be as loud as it possibly can.

So in regards to that news Hadron's Forge (Canceled) by Arcane Logic — Kickstarter
it might be a wise move to cancel now and start again on KS when they are ready to do more active marketing and can be responsive to backers.

Right now with such a bad start success seems pretty unlikely… sadly :frowning:


#10

So, Starmade, but made by people that like moneys more?


#11

Ha, I had actually pledged before I saw this thread. It looks promising, but they set the bar way too high. A really nice kickstarter setup too.


#12

Seems to me that this game and Starmade have only superficial similarities… From what they are planning Hadron’s Forge looks much more complex.


#13

It looks a bit different to Starmade … plus they’ve got the whole “ex-aerospace guy” thing going for them.

Let’s keep the cynicism to a minimum :stuck_out_tongue:


#14

having uber brainiacs on your dev team should definitely give you a “+1 bonus to development”…


#15

Well, it IS like starmade, it’s gonna leapfrog over it because it’s funded and starmade isn’t. I think that it’s just kinda not fair to just make starmade completely irrelevant by leapfrogging over it because you’ve got money than them.


#16

Well, the thing is… Capitalism… and weren’t these guys based in America? I think I recall them being as such.


#17

Hay! That’s not completely true! I cojuldn’t care less for more money than i need for rent/taxes (Depending on what you live in) food, and, ofcourse, most importantly,

internet.

ahh, to be young, and without any pressing responsibilities… :smile:
