Chivalry: Medieval Warfare Kickstarter + Gamescom and a new Website
For us, Kickstarter represents several awesome opportunities, making it a win win situation for current or new fans of the game and the development team.
- 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.
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 via Gametrailers Walkthroughs:
