    The Knights: Spiral Island website has launched along with a new video featuring some pretty sexy in-game footage. They're currently taking pledges to fund the project with hopes to see a wider release.

    It looks great I think (except the ocean water could use some work, but it's ok how it is currently I suppose). The island rocks and terrain, I think, are wonderful. Not the typical "smooth beach" and stuff. It is a welcome look for me, and I'm intrested in this game just from the video. Job well done guys.

    Dont take this the wrong way but I dont understand why anyone would donate to your project.

    Theres a lot of potential, but people should be INVESTED on a project like this...As you stand to make money and they currently only stand to lose money...

    Supporting "the arts" is one thing, but this is not going to be a free release is it? I mean, I'd love love LOVE free money to support every idea I have. However, part of it all is financial risk.

    A better idea would be offering up preorders/early builds access. I understand that can be a pain and time consuming during a development process, but if you absolutely need the money, I dont see why not
    Just my thoughts.

    the people who pledge do infact get early access to the game, and the final game in the end.
    Spiral Islands, the episode will be a pay release, the intention is to get revenue rolling asap to further expansion of free and pay content.
    we have been discussing the likelihood of releasing the Multiplayer DM arena content for free, which is likely going to happen.

    Indy900, Thanks, ya, we whipped this up in a week, were working on pulling the proper team together now and working on gameplay as we speak.

    So what happens if a person donates and you can't get the 10K in time? 50 days isn't much if you ask me...

    Kickstarter does not charge anybody untill the last day, and only IF funding goals are reached.

    Amazing graphics so far. Interest in seeing more polish and gameplay.

    I'm pretty poor at the moment though; just spent my last 6 bucks on a software updgrade.

    Are you planning to do this only for windows? Cause I think you'll get lot of attention from the open source world if a project like this will land on linux too...

    wolverine, Thankyou kindly sir!

    RennyManJR: Well, were using UDK, so linux and mac people are going to have to simulate a windows environment to play it, unfortunately.

    Bite_Me: Steam is the goal, yes, we need something more playable before we approach them though

    That's OK - I LOVE Steam. In fact I'm even more likely to buy it if it's released on their platform as that's pretty much the only way I buy games anymore.

    Will check out the site and hopefully kick the team a few duckets. I guess every bit helps...

    I second this. I'll probably be dropping some money their way just in hopes I get to see more of the terrain design.
