Wartune Novel Kicks Off Crowdfunding Campaign
The Wartune novel crowdfunding campaign began over the weekend at Indiegogo with a US$50,000 goal. Its pages will be filled with back story that fans of the online rpg -- or an epic fantasy action story -- will want to read.
"You probably know the basics: slay the dragon, power up the Eudaemon, get uber-powerful, but it’s time we added a little more depth," said developers. "We’re going to explain why you’re building the most powerful city in the world, and why great evil wants to destroy it."
The crowdfunding campaign was initiated by the studio due to a lack of dedicated novelist in the existing Wartune team. Funds raised in the campaign will go towards hiring a dedicated novelist, editors and other project staff.
The campaign began last week on Nov. 26 at 9:00pm CST on Indiegogo, and will run for another 26 days as of this posting.
