Introducing the Magma Smith!

Posted by Radiant Entertainment (Creator)
1 like

Congratulations on reaching the Magma Smith stretch goal! Look, here he is!

The Magma Smith bends rivers of magma and lava to either constructive or destructive ends, depending on the task at hand. An Apprentice Smith learns his trade by plying lava rivulets into shining arms and armor of black glass.

As the smith's mastery grows, he will learn to redirect underground magma flows, raise whole sheets of lava into towering walls, and hurl balls of fiery destruction at intruders.

Livestream Today, 2:00 PM Pacific

At 2:00 today, we'll do our second development live stream! Tom will answer some of your questions, and will get down to modelling the Magma Smith. You can watch it live at our Twitch.tv channel, http://twitch.tv/radiantentertainment

The stream will be archived at the same URL, for those of you who can't make it live.

      Looks awesome, like a mix of dwarf fortress with fancy graphics :)

      @Eli Butcher, That's a great idea. Go to the site's forum and you will find more info on the game and modding.

      About the modding, for those willing to purchase Qubicle Constructor, would you be willing to put up a single character, or set of models for people to download to use as a template, so we can start playing with the sizes and styles sooner, rather than later? That would be AWESOME!

      Im glad to see this promising project get backed by so many, but with all these stretch goals, I fear it will take several years before we will actully see them all implemented considering how early in development it apparently is. Still hoping for the best :)

      Hello, you could find more backer if you supportet more language. That you could even make a small ziehle. I would also find that amazing. Spanish, German and French were good beginnings. Per target stop only one language.

      Sincerely yours

      Personally I am quite happy that this goal has been reached. Always been a fan of volcanology and, thanks mostly to Dwarf Fortress and associated P&P RPGs, have always loved the concept of using lava/magma in useful and creative ways.

    7. Rand Chua TL on

      nice new goals?

    8. William Minsinger on

      I cannot wait to forge a civilization from burning hot magma!

      Wow love this concept! Amazing

      The Magma Smith looks great however my main reason for commenting was more about the streams. I think they're an amazing idea. Not only do we get to see what you do, see a little into your thought processes and way of working but it really gives an interface between us and you guys.

      We get to see that actually you're real people, that you care about the project and that you value your fans and their questions.

      Please keep them up, at least until release. They are a very valuable tool whether you realise it or not :)

      @ToranKnight Me too! That's why I pledged $50 so I can have the art book ^_^

    15. Geoffers747 on

      @Radiant No worries, who needs time zones anyway?!

    16. Radiant Entertainment Creator on

      @Robert you are correct! The live stream is at 10:00 PM GMT, not 9:00. Doh.

    17. Geoffers747 on

      @Radiant I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I think 2pm PDT will mean 10 PM here due to British Summer Time ... I hope I'm wrong though.

    18. Runeclaw on

      Very nice.

      Just a little warning however. Don't overdo it with all the stretch goals as they will require time and money and you might have miscalculated how hard it will be to add them all into the game.

      Better to spend as much of that as possible on the core game so you don't risk running out of money or time because you promised us too many cool things. Or you could mention that if time does not permit, stretch goals will be content added later.

      Anyway, game does look great and it will be fun to see it during it's development.

      I have to confess.Half the reason I support this game is because of these concept sketches. We need to unlock more classes to make you draw more sketches :)

    20. Steve Adamo on

      this is getting better by the minute (love the concept art)... doubt i can make the stream, but i'll be there in spirit... ;)

      The Magma Smith looks totally awesome. I really wish I wasn't caught up in meetings the hour before the stream begins.

      Free today so definitely will stop by the stream.

    23. Aaron McBride on

      Is there any interest in an Oculus Rift stretch goal?

    24. Keir Symonds on

      Sounds
      Awesome

    25. Aaron Winemiller on

      @David Raymond I hope they announce the next tier of goals. The 280k is blah in my opinion, so I'm hoping for something exciting in the next group. (Don't get me wrong, I liked the other 3 in the 200-300k range.) I just assume the dragon is another cosmetic pet which is kind of cool (Don't get me wrong, I'll probably have him out there) but would be nice to see more game features/mechanics/man eating taco factions.

      I assume you are going to reveal the 300k-400k stretch goals soon? Also any chance we can get the fun little banners for the stretch goals back :)
