SHAKER: An Old School RPG is 1st-person, party-based, fantasy/sci-fi RPG brought to you by award-winning veterans.

Guys, definitely do your next pitch with music and some art slices. I know that you will produce game on the same level of quality as Wasteland and Project Eternity.
I wonder how they came up with that $1M goal figure, if they only started thinking about the game in any detail two weeks into the Kickstarter.
Nice information, I hope to see more about the races
Sounds very unique and intriguing! Make it happen!
The successful kickstarter demonstrates the person(s) asking for the money can do the job, is depending on our input (and not just doing it because they feel like it), and really love what they do. They do that by providing working concepts, entertaining video's in and of themselves or slick marketing (in-house or third-party). Showing your name and waving a placard of past games that younger gamers don't remember is not going to get this kickstarter funded. For the record I absolutely adored the games Tom and Brenda worked on, but In this instance I can understand wholeheartedly why younger gamers might shrug and change the channel (the results speak for themselves, we aren't going to succeed at this trend - kicktraq.com).
So look to successful kickstarter's like Project fedora, wasteland2, project eternity, shadowrun, Carmageddon reincarnation for direction.
Am more excited about this project than PE and would be pretty pissed if it didn't make it. Love Tom Hall's storytelling vibe and all that good stuff. Please reboot this campaign if it doesn't get the funding
@Veeno, I think that it wasn't part of the initial info because they only had a vague idea of the game then. "we've been having discussions about the world of Antera" implies that they're just now deciding how this world will be. They just weren't prepare enough. It was a mistake, but at least they're rectifying it.
Nice, i really hope we can turn this around and get it made.
But why, oh WHY wasn't this a part of the initial info provided in your Kickstarter campaign? THIS is presenting your project!
I hope this manages to garner some more attention and backing.
Spend some money like PA did, get a good concept video out there. This will surely drive the uptake close to 2 million.
I'm with OddBall on this one - Everything he said & we can do this!
Love the map! & As Jared said, cant wait to see some concept art for the different races, cultures & such when you finally have those ready.
And the more I read the more excited I am about the premise here, of Connelly & Co finding themselves stranded, for better or worse, in a relatively unfamiliar world, adapting & coping with whatever comes up next in order to survive.
Damn, I wanna be in Connelly's shoes myself right now - expect I really like his concept art as a guy, so I'll stick to playing him as you've created him in the game ;)
Oh, excellent, just when I was worried we wouldn't hear any more from you! Now that Project Eternity has ended you guys are the last good looking RPG on Kickstarter, you ought to try leveraging that!
(Also wanted to say that I finally put two and two together and realized that Tom worked on Commander Keen. That was my first game and I played it when I was three. Thanks for defining my childhood, and ruining the rest of my life!)
@ LootDrop if it is possible, can you change your original video(editing is your friend) to include the name for starters and all the lore/concept art you have been adding.
Also would be a good idea to put all on the front page,if you haven’t already.
Sorry to nag!
Great update, thanks! I love that the races are different from the usual fantasy ones.
