Funding Secured: Fable Fortune Heading to Steam Closed Beta!

Posted by Flaming Fowl Studios (Creator)

Firstly, we would like to thank everyone that has supported our Kickstarter. We’ve been overwhelmed and a little humbled by the support from our community and we’re incredibly excited to be continuing development alongside you all.

Over the last couple of weeks, we have seen hundreds of you accessing the Alpha build of Fable Fortune, constructing fiendish decks to compete against each other and working together to defeat our first co-op boss, Nostro!

It’s difficult to express the feeling of watching someone boot up and play your game for the first time, but it’s somewhere between heady excitement and utter dread. We've spent nearly two years making Fable Fortune so, understandably, we're not in the best position to be truly objective about it. We knew we had to create something awesome, something that added exciting twists to the CCG genre and something that was completely true to the legacy of Fable, but it wasn't until the game was in your hands that we were sure we'd succeeded. Everyone who has taken an interest in the campaign deserves a heartfelt and honest thank you for making this such a positive, constructive, and downright entertaining experience.

It’s in this spirit that today we can share some amazing news with you. Thanks to your enthusiasm and support, we are happy to announce that we’ve successfully secured additional development funding! This, alongside our ongoing personal investment, will mean that we can continue to improve the game and allow even more of you to start playing.

With the immediate future of Fable Fortune now secure, we have taken the decision to end our Kickstarter campaign early to focus on releasing a Closed Beta build as quickly as possible. As we've always stated, we want to make this game with your help, your feedback and your input. We have huge plans for Fortune and we know that whatever happens in the future, it all started with our already incredible community.

Although we will now be concentrating on the Closed Beta, the Alpha build will remain available during this period and we’ll be looking to deliver a balance update in the very near future. Additionally, in return for your fantastic support, we will be providing all Kickstarter backers with access to the Alpha build and will then migrate ALL players over to our Closed Beta! This means that our backers will continue to be the very first players to get their hands on the latest content and features.

Thanks to your support and the positive reviews from our current players, we know we have something special on our hands and want to enable as many people as possible to experience Fable Fortune over the coming weeks and months. Ultimately, we believe following this path is the best way to achieve this goal.

We’ll be looking to extend admittance to a much wider audience in the near future, so to register your interest in the Closed Beta, sign up here.

Make sure you follow us on Twitter or Facebook to be the first to know all the latest developments and if you have any questions about the Closed Beta or anything else, please feel free to get in contact, we always want to hear your opinions.

Thank you for your continued support! From Flaming Fowl Studios, Mediatonic, and everyone working on Fable Fortune.

      So was the beta sign up just for people that weren't in the tier that gave access to the alpha?

    2. Angela de Waard on

      This is so awesome guys!!!! :D

    3. Tiras356 on

      Really glad for you guys and gals but I have one question?
      Do those who backed still get the tier items they where going to get?

      I was going to buy a 2 person tier, any chance I could get that second alpha code? Thanks!

    5. Chris Bingham on

      I'm super happy for you guys :)
      I kind of suck at the game, but it's probably because I'm still very new to the whole card game thing. Best of luck to you all and I'm glad to see you got funded.

    6. Souldin on

      I was so very worried that this kickstarter would not succeed, as funding seemed to be going slowly, so I'm ever so glad to hear this news. It's great that the future of this title has been secured and that we can all look forward to some of that beloved Fable charm being delivered to us by people who have worked on the game.

      Once this game releases on the Xbox One, it'll be a day one purchase. For now, for the alpha and beta of this game, I will probably have to do that on my brother's computer. My laptop is filled up with video game footage and editing tools, so I doubt it'd be able to handle it. Good luck with the rest of the game!

    7. klandathu on

      are you still planning to release this on xbox one?

    8. Gregory Walsh on

      Thank you! I signed up for the open beta. Can't wait to play!

      Congrats again!

    9. Flaming Fowl Studios Creator on

      Attention all Alpha players - make sure you sign up to this steam group so you can find other players.

    10. Flaming Fowl Studios Creator on

      @Gregory - It takes a lot of time and resource to run a Kickstarter and we felt that right now the best thing we could do for the game is to turn our attention 100% to the closed beta and focus on getting more people in and playing the game as soon as possible. We really truly appreciate the support from our backers which is why want to make sure you all got access to the alpha before we closed the Kickstarter. You will also be the first group of people we bring into the closed beta and although we can't specify anything right now, we fully intend to give you guys something cool to show off that you were there supporting us right from the beginning.

      Really glad to hear this. For Albion!

    12. Gregory Walsh on

      Congratulations! I am very excited that Fable will live on!

      I am reading a lot of people with the same kind of questions: Can you guys explain why it was cancelled instead of attempting to hit the goal in addition to the private funding?

      Also can you explain further what the backers will get as opposed to what the general public will get? It seems a little fuzzy.

      Thank you and congrats again! Love Fable!!

      So pleased you guys are able to progress with the game. I look forward to playing it.

    20. Matthew Lam on

      Yay, glad to hear that sufficient funding has been secured! Seems like a solid game with lots of potential.

    21. Luke Strain on

      If I pledged at a high-tier, will I get any of those high-tier rewards (even though I'm not actually paying it?). I am pumped either way, but it would be sweet to still get all those packs.

    22. Chris Oswalt on

      Congrats! This is great news! Thank you for continuing the Fable Journey. I'm looking forward to being a part of the Flaming Fowl story.

      What will happen to the rewards from the different tiers?, also Congrats

    24. Flaming Fowl Studios Creator on

      @Gary - Everyone that is an Alpha player will transition over to be the first people into the Beta.

      @Oxy - The Alpha will stay up and you are free to stream!

      @Jessica - We know who our backers are and who are Alpha players are - you won't be forgotten :)

    25. Gaby van Gaans on

      Congrats guys!! That's awesome news!! Is it still okay to stream the Alpha? Cause I didn't plan on not playing it on stream anymore so do let me know!

      I'll have a drink on this awesome succes!

    29. Jessica

      Congrats on funding....I guess... Idk, feeling a little underappreciated as a backer, bit I'm still really glad the game will be brought to life. Good luck guys

      Gary Concepcion

      It's great that you've found funding. I do have a question. The wording about transitioning alpha to beta for all backers; but then later has a link to sign up for beta makes it seem like we will not in fact have access? Which is it?

    31. Scott on

      This is great news! Congrats on finding another way. Umm...quick thing though. The register to closed beta link is a 404 not found error.

    34. Koochi on

      @FFS, good job. I'm excited to see what the closed beta and the released game will be like. Glad to see that you got someone to succesfully fund your game. I hope to see it get more exposure and be known as THE go-to CCG.

      I wish you much luck in your development and if I come across anything that'll further your reach with gamers, I'll let you know.

      Not going to disclose with is the one funding?
