Rampage Knights post-Indiegogo update

By boovie

The Indiegogo campaign for Rampage Knights is over and it’s time to think about how we will handle the game from here. The campaign was not successful at all, so let me share what are our plans for the future.

The goal of the funding campaign was to test the interest of public, get feedback and start some buzz around the game. The money was intended for outsouring music and sounds, improved networking, Mac and linux ports, and for more content in the game.

Despite the fail we will try to finish the game the best way we can. For now we have to strip the unnecessary extra features we were planning. We will support only 2 players online co-op. We don’t have budget to implement 3 or 4 players at the moment. If we have enough time we would like to focus on local co-op on single machine instead (it is high on our priority list thanks to the feedback we got), but this feature may be delayed after the release. Hopefully the game will be successful enough after the release to implement the additional content in later updates.

One positive thing is that the game was accepted very quickly on Steam and I think it’s a good candidate for Steam Early Access program. If we don’t manage to finish and release the game this fall, we are thinking about starting the Early Access instead and delay the release to the beginning of 2015 to avoid very crowded time around Xmas. We are also considering releasing the game on Steam only at first (PC and Mac version) and adding non-Steam builds and purchase options later on.

We would like to thank all of the Indiegogo backers who supported us and the game. We really appreciate it and hopefully the game will be more successfull on its release. Thanks!

Right now we continue to work on content for the game. Here is a small preview of one of the bosses in the game (work in progress):
