Great news for fans who loved the initial idea of Fable Fortune. Couple weeks ago, we had informed you about the prospect of this promising project and now the people behind Fable Fortune have secured funding and they will cancel their Kickstarter campaign.
You can read their official press statement below.
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.
