Some big news on our project lately, we have just recently launched our Kickstarter, have recently been in Germany for Gamescom and just announced that the game will also be playable from a 3rd person perspective and put up a new website!

Chivalry: Medieval Warfare Kickstarter + Gamescom and a new
Kickstarter Link: Kickstarter.com
For us, Kickstarter represents several awesome opportunities, making it
a win win situation for current or new fans of the game and the development
- Because kickstarter fees are less than those from traditional online
distributors, we are actually able to offer the game for cheaper, while the
developers make roughly the same amount. So it allows our fanbase to pick up
the game at a reduced price and in doing so more directly support us, the
developers of the game.
- Kickstarter is also an excellent way for us to allow preorders for the
game, something we were unlikely to be able to do otherwise due to
"redtape" and regulations with many online distributors.
We go into more detail on this on our KickStarter Page and Video.
Wow. That word sums it up nicely. Gamescom is huge, it is like a giant seething
human monument to the awesomeness of video games! We only spent a few hours
this year in the public halls but every minute in there feels like a rave. The
booth for Call of Duty Black ops 2 was bigger than our hotel!
Most of our time was spent in the Business Hall this year,
showcasing the game to the press. We were lucky enough to get some time from
Rock Paper Shotgun, GameTrailers, No Frag and Destructoid among others.
At first we were actually making press sit on the floor to
play the game as can be seen here:

But later we were able to find some proper booth space
courtesy of our retail in Europe partner, Lace Mamba. It was our first time at
Gamescom and overall a great experience and showed how massive the gaming
industry really is and some of the giants that we are up against.
We also managed to get some great new footage of the game
