Path of Titans from Alderon Games has managed to pass the crowdfunding test, with their dino survival game hitting well over their initial goal.
They had a flexible goal, meaning all funds raised would be sent to them even if the final target wasn't met. Not that it was needed, as they managed to raise $63,920 against the original $24,437 goal.
They have a lot more videos on their YouTube channel, showing off various different dinos and there's plenty of development videos too for those who look to see some behind the scenes info. It's looking really good, I'm certainly excited to try out a survival game where you're an actual dinosaur running around.
Linux is a confirmed platform for release, with one of their team often around in our Discord Channel. They've been testing Linux support regularly and their standalone launcher already seems to work well.
- Permanent characters with in-depth skin and trait customization
- A complex questing system.
- Group and Guild systems that allow for pack hunting and herd migration, with servers supporting up to 200 concurrent players.
- Lush environment filled with AI dinosaurs and smaller prehistoric creatures
- Swimming, diving, and fishing in both lakes and rivers.
- Cross platform functionality, play the game from your PC with your friends on mobile and vice versa.
- Powerful modding tools with extensive documentation, and a backend allowing modders to deliver their content to other players.
See more on their IndieGoGo and the official site. It should be releasing in some form early next year.
Quoting: 14This looks pretty cool to me. I'm a little nervous for them because it looks a little slower-paced. I don't think this is gonna attract the nil attention span of the Fortnite generation. But that doesn't mean it won't be successful. I just think it'll be a bit niche -- like EVE Online for example.Yeah, a bit niche. But I think dino lovers is a pretty solid niche--not huge, but far from tiny, and probably quite loyal.
I would love a game like this to use the Spintires engine (havok), physical interactions with other objects and ground would be pretty nice for a dino game.
