Post news Report RSS Ealdorlight's Kickstarter has been launched!

Sol Trader follow-on Ealdorlight has gone live on Kickstarter, aiming to raise £40,000 to fund development.

Posted by on

Today, the first anniversary of Sol Trader's release, Ealdorlight's campaign went live on Kickstarter.

Over the last year, I’ve been keeping busy doing two things. One is to support my first game Sol Trader as much as I can with countless updates and patches. I’ve also been very busy working on a new game, Ealdorlight, a medieval RPG-style take on Sol Trader’s mechanics, with turn-based combat, realistic damage and great graphics. I announced Ealdorlight in March and demonstrated it at Rezzed, strengthening my hope that the idea was a good one.

I decided fairly early on that I wanted to take Ealdorlight to Kickstarter. Sol Trader’s successful Kickstarter was a brilliant experience. The Kickstarter community is one of the kindest, most positive on the Internet. I also needed funding for this game: Sol Trader was self-funded through many long evenings and contracting work, and for Ealdorlight I need a bigger team to realise the vision. It’s built in Unreal Engine 4, which simultaneously saves me loads of development time and means I need a bigger team to pull off the realistic art style I’ve gone for.

I'd love to know what you think of the game! Please do spread the word, and let's hit some of those social goals!
