    Console playing casuals and BR lovers aren't very likely to follow this game, I'm sure for most their eyes glaze over when mention is made of the group centric, cooperative design.

    Mentioning the word "challenge" is often a non starter as well.

    Of all the other indie projects, this one seems to have far fewer issues and problems.  Tim seems to know enough to keep any dirty laundry, if it exists, out of the public's eye.  He and his team are to be commended for that, at the very least.

    Not bad for armchair developers.  Goooooo!  Team SoL.  (Even though I'm not likely to make any long-term commitment to this game, an indie team that is actually doing things like keeping promises, proper IT development, and the like fills me with hope for the future of this genre).

    Cool beans :) 

    And hey, the algorithm may change tomorrow, some trolls who have never played our game may go downvote us, who knows? 

    But for now, it's a cool little "feather in the hat" to see us pop up in the #1 slot.

    We've had our fair share of missteps (curse of being newbies at all of this), but thankfully we've been able to learn from those mistakes and keep on plugging, despite a few scuffed hands and scraped knees :) 

    We're not perfect, but it's been steady progress since we kicked things off in 2014, and investors + our community are happy with us, and that's all that matters to us at this stage of things. 

    We'll be sharing a slew of new footage in March with the pre-order store re-opening, and folks can see what we've been working on. Still a lot of work left to do, but we take things one day at a time. 

    Has served us well so far.

    Whole slew of new articles are about to start coming out in March as well :) We're already slated to appear on several streamer's Twitch/YouTube channels, we've got our own teaser streams starting later this month, a preview stream on March 18th on our Twitch channel scheduled to go live, and some media sites prepping Q/A sessions with us that will be going live in March + April. 

    Stay tuned :) 

    Also, it's expected that not everyone has heard of us. We don't have any celebrity attached to our names, we've never developed a title before, we've done zero press to-date (other than interviews as they have approached us and our own blog posts/social media) and we've been dark the last year in closed alpha working with investment money rather than hyping a pre-order store and hawking pledges to keep us in the public eye. 

    Although, we're about to re-open that store in a couple of months, so =P Time to let those "greedy developer" accusations fly!~

    There is also the book, Echos of the Past. Reading that is on my to do list. But I am waiting to read it until closer to release, so i don't forget everything.

    We've got one guy (and his brother) who are on their third read-through, if I'm not mistaken! They were pinging me over the holidays with notes and questions on timelines, locations, all these little things like "does it snow in X location" and "where is tavern Y in relation to location Z mentioned in this chapter". 

    Some folks take their lore even more seriously than I do! :)

    Pantheon and this game are on my radar, I hope to play one of the two soon.

    Both are on my radar as well but I will only play Pantheon - if it survives development 

    SoL I am interested to see if it ever survives development- not my cup of tea so have no interest in playing

    Not interested in some pro rated streamers hype up a game,matter of fact i am losing more interest by the day to streamers in general,they are all sell outs for money.

    Hype,votes also do not matter to me,just show me the goods and explain why i might want to play it.Superficial ideas do NOT win me over.

    I am also really not interested in interviews either,those are ALWAYS bull ,just more hype advertising.Make a video with valuable information and explained game design ideas that interest me,show it on your website.
    I lost track at how many games of recent i have bought that were extremely disappointing to the point they all look like super lazy cheap game designs.

    I will be straight up frank,at this point in time,2020,i EXPECT at the very least a FFXI 2.0,better yet if a 3.0.I have zero use for Wow clones or any kind of waste my time doing meaningless quests then end game for gear grinding.I want a breathing world,various npc scripts to bring towns to life.I want eco systems,weather,building,water zones,basically give me Atlas +FFXI and or better.

    Nope, they have not. 

    Meanwhile, Bree over at Massively OP already has a Q/A in the works with us for March, we've got multiple streamer interviews going on in late March, and some other websites as well. 

    Our door is always open, but it requires game journalists to do their job and actually interview/do the research/put in the time, not just retweet.

    Perhaps if you re-branded as a singleplayer console game it might help?

    I believe Pantheon has the lowest budget of all Indie MMO in development, bar SoL maybe.
    But for what I can see from the streaming, the game seems quite playable already, though with very little content.

    If they can finish Project Farthtail (or whatever is called), they will finish the rest of the game, no matter what, as it will be only a matter of world building and content creation after that.

    Plus having a small sample of the full game will bring on board more investors and more crowdfunded money.

    But yes, right now, money is an issue.

    That's every game, by the way. 

    They start with a vertical slice/beautiful corner, get all the game features in, and then just start plugging additional zones/dungeons/etc. into that. 

    And they certainly have had more money to work with than us. Brad brought a certain amount of celebrity to the equation.

    That, and they never shut their pre-order store off. Ours has been off for an entire year, which is "money thrown away" in the grand scheme of things.
