Hi there Guys !
At first sorry for my english i am german and i will do my best to express my thoughts so that they are easy to understand. After revisiting the website to play the pre-alpha i found myself very impressed, it was quite some time ago that i first stumbled onto this project and at first i thought "another text rpg - an mmo without the mulitplayer part" i left the game 30 minutes later and didn't care enough. Now i played for about ~10 minutes and i have got to say i am overwhelmed by the progress and overall quality.
Well coming to the reason why i started the topic : Please don't get me wrong i understand you and your roadmap for the furutre i see you are ambitious and you really like what you are doing and you're good at that ! so therefore my respect BUT
Talking about the second game 2LEWD is a big mistake in my opinion of course you are just talking about it but for uniformed people it could look like "this guy just wants our money with a piece of trash to do the next piece of trash which he isn't going to finish then again". I am in no position to judge you whatsoever but i clearly would remind you to think about your strategy and dont get me wrong yet again you got me hyped when you were typing about the UE4 or better an adult mmo with the UE4. Something like this would be my dream coming true but let's get back to the ground on planet earth shall we ?
It is a good idea to at first gather user willing to support the project and spread the word it is a good strategy to not just "hit the start button" on kickstarter and see where it goes. But there is the problem you are already talking about your big future plans but you don't even started the funding phase for the first one, the basic game which is the essence that starts your dreams. And even though i believe you that youa re able to pull of the funding and your roadmoap to 2015 and maybe even an early alpha of 2LEWD... there are many people out there who would just turn around laughing with how much you are promising to deliver - those are potential supporters.
Its all fine and dandy talking about your dreams and your plans but in my opinion you should notch it down a tone or two and when the funding has got its 15.000 (maybe even 100.000) and you're delivering what you're promising with the alpha and beta builds than we can talk about 2LEWD and the possibilites of UE4. Well of course the possibility would be there to swap engines and just start right on with the UE4 engine for LEWD. But thats not for me to decide and no matter how everything turns out from here i'll be one of your supporters !
The Demo is very promising and as said before its a very good work and fast ! I wish you good luck !
What is everyone elses thought on this ?
P.S. I don't own a credit card since i had some serious issues when i had one - which methods will be offered to pledge ? I read something about Amazon and Paypal ? I wonder how this would be possible... Paypal will surely turn you down jsut because it is an erotic game.
