crowdfunding through Patreon

Brad McQuaid has apparently started a new Patreon to fund Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen, the third crowdfunding source that the game has employed.

Let's recap: The game was first announced by the former Vanguard lead with a Kickstarter campaign that failed to meet its target goal. That was followed by an on-site fundraising campaign that abruptly ended when McQuaid admitted (against a backdrop of worrisome rumors) that there was no more money to pay the studio employees, at which point he told fans that development was starting again with an all-volunteer team.

So what do you get for backing the game's development? Videos.

The current funding goals are $1,000 increments for monthly development videos through January; they'll show the volunteer team's progress on the game. Those who donate large amounts of money will also be granted exclusive screenshots of the in-development version of the game (so far those we've seen include placeholder assets) and a spot in the credits of a development video. The page claims that any and all funds raised will fund the team as well as defray hardware and server costs.

    Well i have to admire his determination... Many lesser men or women would have given up by now.


    But on the other hand there is that saying about how you define insanity.


    Still... It is kind of impressive.

    This have been a good conversation

    Having all volunteers while paying only yourself seems like decent motivation to me.

    ROFL he actually says hes waiting for divine intervention to fund his project at this point...... angel investor huh? This piece of shit literally took all of the kickstarter money to pay himself and left the rest of the team with nothing. The game looks like it is from 1999 anyway so even if it wasn't being run by a complete scam artist it would be vaporware. Sorry brad, not even jesus can resurrect your terrible reputation at this point.  It looks like you might want to grab a paper hat and start learning how to say "would you like some fries with that" I'm sick of these liars and scammers running to these crowd funding sites over and over and producing nothing.
