Thrive Games' Dragon of Legends Hits Steam Early Access December 15th

We've known about Dragon of Legends for a while now, but now that's all coming to a Steam Early release December 15th (tomorrow). The pixel action RPG will be in Early Access until "it is finished", and Thrive Games mentioned on their Steam page about why they did Early Access.

“Game development is largely an iterative process, and games that incorporate player feedback become something truly special. We understand and embrace this philosophy whenever possible, as we have planned to bring Dragon of Legends to the Early Access platform since its initial inception. Our private community of Kickstarter backers have provided a tremendous help in improving and shaping the game, and now we would like to invite the Steam Community to join us on our journey.”

Thrive Games Relaunches Kickstarter For Dragon of Legends

A few weeks ago we wrote about Dragon of Legends launching on Kickstarter. The game got to about 20% funded before Thrive Games pulled the plug.

"During our last campaign an investment firm has stepped forward and presented an offer which would cover up to 80% of development expenses for this project, provided we can account for the other 20% in cash. As indicated in our last Kickstarter $60k would be enough money to create a functional version of the game - but now with this new offer if we can raise 20% of that goal ($12k) during this campaign, this investor has agreed to cover the remaining expenses required to make the project a reality"

The new Kickstarter was launched and as of this morning has already passed the $12,000 dollar mark, making Dragon of Legends funded.  We're now onto Stretch Goals for Dragon of Legends.  At $16,000 the game will have a bonus playable class, and at $20,000 it will have an expanded bestiary and new PVE arenas. You can check out the new Kickstarter here.


Dragon of Legends Hit Kickstarter - Let's Get This Game Funded

As announced last week, Dragon of Legends from Thrive Games has hit Kickstarter with a goal of $60,000 dollars, the lowest tier to guarantee a copy of the game is only $10 dollars.  We've written about Dragon of Legends quite a bit, but you can check out further details and trailer below:

Dragon of Legends is an online action RPG for PC, Mac, Linux, and Mobile devices, that is heavily influenced by Gaelic and Norse mythology. Enter the ever-evolving lands of Hávámal, where the lights of faeries border the realms of darkness. Two alliances have emerged across the world, both struggling for supremacy over the land and as these great powers battle one another for control of Hávamál – darker forces gather to destroy them. Players from around the world can assume the roles of customizable heroic fantasy characters, and explore a lush 2D world full of mystery, danger, and countless adventure.
After creating your own custom character and selecting a faction, you will set out on an epic quest to conquer evil and save the lands of Hávamál from impending doom, or succumb to the darkness and act as an agent of destruction. You will have your own background, racial history, and character specific storyline that will provide direction, and motivation behind all of your actions. Along your adventures you will acquire new equipment and learn powerful skills to aid you on your path, and you will be constantly interacting with other players from around the world. In order to defeat the most complicated and challenging dungeons, you must strategically coordinate your efforts and work effectively as a team to reap the rewards. You can band together with like-minded players in clans and guilds and wage war against other rival factions - or even turn on your own:

Currently the game is planned for PC, Mac, Linux, and mobile but console versions may be possible as well...

Square Enix Highlights Dragon of Legends On Collective Page

Remember when the developers behind Halcyon 6 just absolutely destroyed Kickstarter? No doubt that part of the reason was they were backed by Square Enix on their Collective page, which helps promote independent developers trying to get funded.

Enter, Dragon of Legends, which has now made its way onto Square Enix Collective. Square Enix simply asks if you would fund this game if it went onto Kickstarter.  

"After creating your own custom character and selecting a faction, you will set out on an epic quest to conquer evil and save the lands of Havamal from impending doom, or succumb to the darkness and act as an agent of destruction. You will have your own background, racial history, and character specific storyline that will provide direction, and motivation behind all of your actions. Along your adventures you will acquire new equipment and learn powerful skills to aid you on your path, and you will be constantly interacting with other players from around the world. In order to defeat the most complicated and challenging dungeons, you must strategically coordinate your efforts and work effectively as a team to reap the rewards.

Dragon of Legends Interview Over At True Indie MMO

Our good friends at True Indie MMO got to sit down with the guys at Thrive Games to discuss their upcoming MMO Dragon of Legends.  The interview is definitely a worthy read and talks about some gameplay elements, and creating a game in Ontario.

"TIMMO: You don’t give away much about the class system as of yet. Can you tell me anything
about it?

Nathan: At this moment the two revealed classes are the Norse Ranger (ranged DPS), and the Celtic Phalanx (tank). These will function much like you would imagine. Again can’t say much about this, but our gameplay teaser will be able to speak to this point further."
