First hands-on previews for Forge are in - They like what they saw
We went on a little tour this week, showing Forge to gaming journalists from several respected sites, letting them get into the game and play with us. We couldn't be happier with the results. Below are a few excerpts from stories that are out, but there are more to come.
IGN - "Rocket-jumping wizards? I can't pledge on Kickstarter fast enough...What's admirable here is that Forge isn't expecting to own a massive audience out of the gate - it's trying to earn a community with good ol' fashioned great game design."
GamesRadar - "FORGE looks like it'll be a great romp for gamers looking to test their skills without investing hours into acquiring gear before they can compete."
MMORPG - "Face-Punchingly Good PVP... I can tell you that while Forge may be difficult to describe to the uninitiated, its gameplay will be instantly comfortable to aficionados of the MMO and FPS/TPS genres."
DIGITAL NOOB - "This week I was able to check out FORGE firsthand, and it is definitely one of the top games I’m anticipating the release of. It takes the best things of MMOs (the PvP), Shooters (in your face action) and MOBAs (the even playing field) and mashes them together in a great way....I admit that I was skeptical at first, but after meeting with the guys and spending some time testing out the game, I’m a believer."
MASSIVELY - "...there's a lot to love about Forge, and I think that anyone who gives the game a fighting chance will find something about it to keep him around... I think Forge definitely deserves our attention."
What we loved most, was watching almost universal skepticism melt away and be replaced by people having fun followed by words of support. We're working as hard as we can to get the game into your hands as quickly as we can get it there so you can experience the same. In the meantime, and we know many of you are already, keep spreading the word.
To every backer: Thank you. To all future backers, thank you in advance.
