Mage's Initiation Demo

A new Kickstarter update for Mage's Initiation now offers a playable alpha demo for Himalaya Studios' upcoming adventure/RPG inspired by the classic Sierra On-Line games from back in the day. For those interested in more on the project, they will be holding an AMA on reddit tomorrow at 1:00 pm EDT. Here's word on the demo:

This demo provides a very early look at Mage's Initiation, based on the current alpha build. As such, it may have some bugs and is lacking a few features that will appear in the finished game -- it's very much a work in progress! Besides giving backers and potential backers a peek behind the curtain, the team is hoping to gather feedback about the interface and combat system that will inform the game's development moving forward.

Don't they understand that the earlybird tiers turn a lot of people off. So I'm supposed to pay $10 or $20 more for the same game because I didn't get in immedaitely? PASS!

How else would you suggest they get support early on in a kickstarter project without involving physical goods? Support early on in a kickstarter project a crucial to reaching funding. Almost every kickstarter project for a game I've seen does this.

Instead of whining about how you missed out on the sale, it would have been nice to see a useful evaluation of their work.

You're the one whining. I'm explaining a simple and important fact of sales. Good thing you're not in business, you'd last all of a week.

I've been in at $20 for awhile, as most of the physical stuff doesn't interest me. That, and Delver's Drop and Torment have kind of broke me...

But the project looks good, and I hope it does well for them. They seem like a talented group of folks.


These folks did a lot of work with Lori and Cori cole if I'm not mistaken in the past.

At least I didn't buy Evolve.

Well it didn't turn me off. Either you want to support them or you don't. I don't care that someone "got away" with donating less. It just doesn't matter to me.
