After Raising $114,000 on Kickstarter, Dev Goes Silent

Written By Kom Limpulnam on Rabu, 18 Februari 2015 | 23.37

The Stomping Land, a planned multiplayer dinosaur-survival game that raised $114,000 on Kickstarter, is now in a critical state with its art lead quitting and its creator not responding to emails.

In June 2013, The Stomping Land Kickstarter project managed to raise more than $114,000 from 4,400 backers, having initially only asked for $20,000.

A year later, a first build of the project was published on Steam Early Access, and at the time its lead developer--Alex Fundora--assured that "even though the game is available, development is still in full force."

However, this would mark he final update on the game's Kickstarter page. Now, the game's lead artist has quit the project and says he hasn't been able to establish contact with Fundora in weeks.

In-game model designer, Vlad Konstantino, wrote on The Stomping Land forums: "More than a month has passed since the day when I received the last reply from Fundora. I've sent him five messages and haven't got any single reply."

Konstantino also claimed that Fundora owes him money, and that "if this silence continues I will stop my participation in TSL and start taking the necessary measures to cover my expenses."

The message, first brought to light by PC Gamer, adds that Konstantino is now working on a different project entirely.

One backer, who said they had invested $90 in The Stomping Land, has informed Kickstarter of the issue, but the crowd-funding site could only offer an apology in return.

It is not clear if Kickstarter can or will take any further action.

Leaked Gold Mario Amiibo Appears to Be Walmart-Exclusive

Nintendo will release a gold Mario Amiibo later this year alongside Wii U party game Mario Party 10, according to a leaked posted from retailer Walmart that appeared on Reddit.

"Make this Easter golden!" reads a line from the poster, which specifically mentions that the gold Mario Amiibo will be sold "only at Walmart."

Mario Party 10 launches March 20, while Easter this year is Sunday, April 5.

This isn't the first time we've heard about a special-edition Mario Amiibo variant. In fact, gold and silver Mario Amiibo were spotted on Nintendo's own website earlier this month.

It's not uncommon for retailers to snag exclusives for Amiibo toys. After all, Shulk is exclusive to GameStop, Meta Knight can only be purchased at Best Buy, and Lucario is only available at Toys 'R Us.

Earlier this week, Nintendo revealed the worldwide best-selling Amiibo toys and more.

World of Tanks Coming to Xbox One With Cross-Platform Support

Free-to-play tank-battling game World of Tanks is coming to Xbox One. Developer Wargaming announced the news Wednesday in a post on its website, also noting that the Xbox 360 edition of the game has now crossed 5 million downloads to date.

World of Tanks on Xbox One will support cross-platform play, meaning Xbox 360 and Xbox One gamers will play on the same virtual battlefields. Gameplay is the same across console generations, but Wargaming explains that World of Tanks will look better on Xbox One.

In addition, all progress from the Xbox 360 version of World of Tanks--including vehicles, experience, and credits--will carry forward to the Xbox One edition. This is made possible due to the fact that progress is stored and saved to your Xbox Live account.

Wargaming also explains that gamers who want to go back and forth between the Xbox 360 and Xbox One version of the game can do so, and their progress will remain intact.

World of Tanks will be released for Xbox One sometime in 2015. The game is also currently available on PC. Some screenshots of the Xbox One edition are available below.

Game Returns to Steam After Dev Threatens Gabe Newell

Paranautical Activity, the roguelike FPS that was removed from Steam after one of its developers publicly threatened to "kill" Gabe Newell, has reappeared on the PC games platform.

A special "Atonement Edition" emerged on Steam after its developer, Code Avarice, sold the IP to publisher Digerati.

Back in October, an embarrassing flurry of emotional decisions led the Code Avarice developer Mike Maulbeck to claim that Steam "is the most incompetent piece of fucking shit". He made this remark, along with a string of others, moments after his game was published on Steam.

"Fucking Steam is just fucking taking money out of my pocket. Misinforming people that my game is in fucking early access," he complained.

"I am going to kill Gabe Newell. He is going to die," he added.

Shortly afterwards, the game disappeared from Steam, and Maulbeck resigned from his position at Code Avarice and, at the time, suggested he may not return to games again.

Maulbeck said at the time he had sold his half of the company to another employee, and has given up all his rights and ownership of the studio's intellectual properties, meaning he had closed off all routes of income from the studio.

But about a month later he returned to the studio. Code Avarice wrote on its website: "This is probably not hugely surprising to some of you, but Mike couldn't commit to his decision to leave Code Avarice. [Co-founder Travis Pfenning] publicly denounced his departure, and in the weeks following his official stepping down Mike had second thoughts."

This wasn't the final chapter in the saga, however, as it emerged on Valentines Day that the game--called Paranautical Activity--had returned to Steam, with the suffix "Deluxe Atonement Edition".

According to Maulbeck's Twitter feed, he is now looking for a job elsewhere.

Minecraft Creator Discusses Sale to Microsoft, "Sellout" Criticism

Minecraft creator Markus "Notch" Persson has spoken out regarding last year's unexpected blockbuster deal that saw Persson sell developer Mojang to Microsoft for $2.5 billion.

Hypothetically asked by a fan if he thought he was a "sellout" for agreeing to the deal, Persson replied: "I kinda feel like I am, but I still feel like I made the right choice. I guess some things always come at a cost."

The fan who asked the question said he didn't really see it that way. Persson was in a way stuck between a rock and a hard place, he suggested. If he sold Minecraft, critics would say he's a sellout; if he didn't, some might see him as a one-trick pony.

Persson said: "The one-trick pony thing was hard to deal with. Matching the insane success of Minecraft would be impossible. I'm OK with it now."

He's now spending some of his time prototyping new games that he doesn't intend to ever show or release publicly. "The fun is back! Programming is annoying and frustrating, but SO MUCH FUN," he said, explaining that these projects--if they are ever released--aren't intended to match the success of Minecraft.

Persson was believed to have a 70 percent stake in Mojang, meaning he made somewhere in the area of $1.75 billion from the sale to Microsoft. He has since left Mojang and purchased a $70 million mega-mansion in Beverly Hills.

Zelda-Like Adventure Game Oceanhorn Hits Steam Next Month

Oceanhorn, a Zelda-like adventure game originally released for iOS devices last year, is coming to PC through Steam on March 17, developer Cornfox & Brothers have announced.

The PC edition of the game is described as a "completely remastered version," featuring a major graphical and technical overhaul that should make it more suitable for bigger screens and more powerful hardware.

"All of the game's graphical assets have been tweaked for the PC platform," its developer writes. "We added four times more polygons, sharper textures, normal maps, detail objects, and new lighting effects such as dynamic ambient occlusion, soft shadows, and realtime reflections to make Oceanhorn look stunning when played in 4K resolution."

What's more, its developer explains that Oceanhorn has been "redesigned" for physical controls; it supports both keyboard & mouse and gamepad. In addition, the game's puzzles have been re-tooled and areas of the game that felt confusing or unfair have been redesigned.

The PC edition of Oceanhorn costs $15, while the iOS version sells for $9.
