Summoners Fate *Official* Community Forums Now Live!
90% funded and still 11 days left, you guys ROCK!
Once again, Kelly and I would like to express a warm "Thank you" to everyone who has pledged. We are so grateful to have such an amazing group of supporters.
Official Community Forums and Our Commitment to Communication
Kelly and I are committed to consistent, daily communication on the progress of Summoners Fate. We've been following this trend since August 2016 across our many communication channels and we intend to continue with regular updates each day leading up to the worldwide launch in 2018.
Did you know that less than 5% of our Facebook communications actually reach our audience? We can't explain it, but we believe it is due to how Facebook algorithms curate content as well as the relative "social noise" that causes content you care about seeing to get buried in the feeds.
For the best possible experience and to make sure you never miss an update from us, we recommend registering on our newly created Summoners Fate Forums and subscribing to our Game Updates & News board. This will ensure you have an opportunity to see each update. To subscribe to this board, first register on the forums, then select the board and press the "Notify" button (it looks like a bell). Unsubscribe at anytime by clicking the "Notify" button again. You can also manage your subscriptions in your forum profile.
And of course we'll still be communicating across our other platforms (over 20 different channels and counting) and that includes Kickstarter updates.
Pro Tip: After registering your account, you can customize your profile by selecting an avatar. The avatar folder contains over 140 unique characters already in the game, with more being added as we complete them. Have fun browsing the choices!
NOTE: If you do not receive a welcome email after registering on the forums, be sure to check your junk email inbox and add permission to receive future forums related emails from us. Also check your junk email settings if you do not receive notifications. This will ensure communications are getting through.
In addition to getting every update, the other great benefit of our forums is that we'll be keeping things organized so that desired content is easy to find. For example, we have an entire board dedicated to characters. You can also use the "Search" feature to find immediate answers to your questions or specific content you may be looking for. We'll also have daily discussions, polls and more here that everyone can access and enjoy regardless of which social media platforms you use. Forums were the central hub of our community in our first game, Hero Mages, and we hope to make this an enjoyable new experience as we head towards launch of Summoners Fate and beyond.
Social Goals Update
Congratulations, we hit our second Discord Members goal of reaching 25 members! We've added a new goal category for registering on our forums. Also, we've condensed the Facebook goals to a single column and we're now counting total shares of both the linked post and our mini trailer post for this goal total. We are very close to hitting several more social goals and unlocking the Reptilian themed Discord icons for everyone!
Another Awesome Project
One of the best experiences being on Kickstarter is having the opportunity to meet other developers in pursuit of their dreams of making innovative games brought to life by supporters like you. To that end, I'd like to draw your attention to another awesome indie game project here on Kickstarter:
CEFORE is a physics-based puzzler in an abstract simplistic art style in which you get contracted to bring down different structures in the most creative ways possible. Try not to cause too much destruction, of course. Check it out here.
