Sword of Fargoal 2 Kickstarter

This Kickstarter seeks funding for Sword of Fargoal 2, a sequel to Sword of Fargoal, a classic Rogulelike dungeon crawler released around 30 years ago for the Commodore VIC-20 and C-64. This is being conducted by SoF creator Jeff McCord, and the campaign's $50,000 goal is to complete the last 20% of a re-imagined version of the game for Windows, OS X, and Linux for release in May 2013.

A game designed for a pad will always be hampered by the lowest denominator that this represents.. hence the "hate" though I am not sure this has any real meaning for a game like this if anything the "simplicity" is what drags it down;)


i wonder if kids are able to tell the difference between "hate" and "disinterest" these days.. also between their ass and a hole in the ground

at least they still understand mockery quite well.. or do they?

its so confusing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
Go forth, and kill!

I am not convinced this Kickstarter will make it to 50k to begin with and the reason is simple, it looks.. like an extremely boring game idea and if all it is a prettier remake with more levels of the game from 30 years ago.. then I say to that.. no thanks

I rather take 50 buggy as hell Obsidian RPG's than another dungeon crawler without any new ideas or concepts.

How far back are we going with this stuff? What's next, a Zaxxon 2 Kickstarter? The Last Ninja? Robin to the Rescue? PONG???

I would throw money at a The Last Ninja remake.

On the one hand, Fargoal was a fun game back in the day. On the other hand, we didn't have Skyrim. Sorry, but sometimes you really can't go home.

Apple tablet game. Pass.

Yes, let's ignore the PC part and the Mac part and the Linux part and only focus on the iPart.

"$50,000 for developing it - not counting sales?" Um... roughly 100% of Kickstarter projects don't count sales. Why the stupid hate?

It's a simple game, that's why Fargoal 2 is 50 grand and Obsidian's "We promise it won't be buggy as hell" is 1.1 million.

It's a very simple roguelike, even the additions he plans on adding don't expand the game much. $50,000 for developing it - not counting sales? Gotta love kickstarters
