Funding Unsuccessful

This project's funding goal was not reached on December 7, 2013.

A single-player party-based CRPG that combines deep characters and rich storytelling with turn-based combat—NOT A DUNGEON CRAWLER!

New $20 reward tier introduced


Here is a quick heads-up for you to let you all know that we have just opened a new $20 rewards tier. A lot of the feedback and comments we have received in the past days revolved around a lower-priced tier. Since the limited EARLY BIRD EDITION has been sold out for some time, many of you feared that the $25 barrier of entry is too high to attract new backers.

Therefore we have just created a new $20 tier that is stripped down quite a bit from the $25 tier. It features only a Digital Copy of the game—as a Steam key, if it is a backer’s preferred method of delivery, of course—along with In-Game Credits, Backer Forum and Beta Access. None of the other added value items will be included in this tier.

There’s nothing to hold you back now! No more excuses. Pledge now if you haven’t done so yet!

Christmas is Coming

Trying to get new backers is hard work. I am sure you can tell by now, but with Christmas approaching fast, there is something you can do nonetheless to help our campaign.

Did you ever think of giving a Kickstarter pledge as a gift?

I am not kidding. It is a serious thought. Instead of purchasing a traditional gift this year, why not purchase a “Deathfire: Ruins of Nethermore” pledge for someone? We will even create a beautiful gift certificate for you that you can put under the Christmas tree.

Naturally, this will work also for your friends, even if they do not play games themselves. Surely, however, they have friends or family members who do enjoy computer games and for whom "Deathfire" would make a fantastic Christmas gift. Or just go the extra mile and specifically ask your friends and family members for a "Deathfire" gift for Christmas. :)

The possibilities are endless, so go out there, shout it out, tell the world about it! It's Christmas time… the time of Giving… and we can use all the help we can get! :)

Think of it. It’s the gift certificate that keeps on giving, as the recipient will receive the game, bonus items and all sorts of things, and in addition the gift would further help and support our project.

Isn’t that much better than buying a retail game somewhere, that has no frills, no bells, no whistles and most likely comes with copy-protection on top of it?

Thank you in advance for considering it.

      @E=mc2 thanks, was wondering about that too as there is no apparent difference from the description on the right...

      Thanks for the answer.
      I already read about the Psycho Engine. It definitely sounds very interesting. I am gonna delve a bit deeper into the website tomorrow.
      I don't have a lot of money to spend and I like so many different games that I rarely pay more than €10 for any of them. I tend to pay more for independents (frankly they often deserve it more than AAA companies), but I already pledged quite a bit this year, so even the $20 minimum is quite a bit for me. Let's see whether I can up my pledge anyways. :-)

      @E=mc2 yes, thanks. So the in-game item and wallpapers are the perks for getting in early at $20. Good to know.

    4. Creator Atarun on December 1, 2013

      Is there any difference between early-bird $20 abd regular $20?
      Also, as I commented in the previous update, I think KS projects make spectacularly bad gifts because:
      - They are almost never released anywhere near on time. Cue the Xmas '14 certificate for a video game that most likely won't be released in time for Xmas '15...
      - Extending the KS backer experience to gift recipients will be a logistical nightmare.
      The only situation in which I would recommend gifting a KS-backed product is if you are a bona fide KS backer and you get additional copies of stuff to give to your friends. Then you might as well make it a surprise until the stuff (be it a physical product or a digital key, etc) is available, so they won't have to wait.

      That link was supposed to be, of course. :)

    6. Creator G3 Studios on December 1, 2013

      @ Chris There is plenty of information and stuff about it out there. Just check out the previous update or the update about the Psycho Engine. Also feel free to visit the official website at for a ton of additional info, including the back story and teaser storylines, etc.

    7. Creator Chris K on December 1, 2013

      I was in fact struggling a bit with those extra $5.
      The reason I was struggling was the following: the concept sounds very promising, but for a game that concentrates a lot on story, I didn't find a lot about it. Could you elaborate a bit more on that?
      Maybe I missed it (that's a lot of stuff to read :D). If so, please point me in the right direction.

      Gift certificate is IMO a lovely idea, and a good way to introduce gamer friend(s) to indie gaming & crowdfunding. We're all in this for the long run, think about it :-)

    9. Creator Jesse Dylan Watson on December 1, 2013

      Fingers crossed! :)
