Furstarter Week in Review 2-3-14
Furfunding Week in Review 2-3-14
First, a moment of silence for Antilia,the furry MMORPG with a promising launch and whimper of an ending. What makes a project succeed or fail? This one seemed to have LOTS on the ball–strong visuals, the product well in development. Was it a victim of the commercial nature of crowdfunding at the large-project level? A glut of product in the Indie gaming industry or MMORPG product space? Too niche?
On the tabletop front, though, several new projects. I’m excited–again–by Terrene Odyssey, which had a strong launch but is now in the mid-campaign oceanic abyss that is the Kickstarter lifecycle. Here’s hoping for a few surges, the goal’s not distant, but one does not simply walk into…uh…successful funding.
A little microcallout for Fursday, a new curated furry news blog with hand-picked articles, and excellent taste in contributing writers. Good luck! This week’s reviews: Terrene Odyssey, Mob Town, and a cluster of mini-reviews of adult projects on Offbeatr and Kickstarter. Beware, here there be nudes.
