Good day everyone! I’m going to keep this short and sweet, since this is an obvious one. Today’s project of note is for an 8-bit MMO by Pixels of the Night. Is Pixels of the Night the name of the company or the name of the game? I can’t say for sure.

So what information can Pixels of the Night give us about their game?

This project has been in works for two years now. With help from my college teacher to really put the code behind the game in place. What this money will do is help with the cost of servers, and hire another programmer to help with the many errors that may arise when dealing with building an MMO.

Cool, understandable. It makes sense that you’d need money to run the servers, hire more programmers, and dealing with technical issues. Since the game has been in the works for two years, what other information can you give? Screenshots? Game mechanics? Anything? Bueller?

No, despite being in development for two years, PotN doesn’t deem it necessary to give us even the most minimal of details on their game. No screenshots, no concept art, no details on game mechanics, no nothing. Evidently the creator should have had their college teacher help with the Kickstarter campaign as well.

Unsurprisingly, people aren’t too enthused about funding this campaign, and it has yet break $0 in funding with 11 days to go. The creator is hoping to raise two grand. So since I have absolutely no idea what this game is about, the next logical question is: How much can I donate and what do I get for it?

People who donate 100 dollars will receive a limited addition of the game, featuring 1k gold, and a exclusive armor set keeping you ahead of the game.

Any lingering doubt that the creator doesn’t know what he’s doing should vanish when you note that the only reward tier is for $20, but the detail of the reward is only for donations of at least $100.
