City State Entertainment is an independent game developer. We are not owned by any publisher, Venture Capital firm, or larger entity. We are a team of developers who are using crowdfunding and additional money from our co-founder Mark Jacobs as well as former investors in Mythic Entertainment to make the next great RvR game. As such, we ask you please not to donate to our game’s development unless:
Again, PLEASE do not donate to our game just to take a look at the game’s status, just wait till we start streaming. PLEASE do not donate to our game if you are expecting a modern Beta experience of an almost finished game. We want to continue to be one of the few Kickstarter-backed developers who is willing to pay full refunds even after five (5) years of development. Over the last month, we have seen a large increase in people buying an expensive tier and then immediately refunding the game. We are not Valve, EA, or other such publisher/store and the loss of time/money from refunds does indeed hurt our studio and the development of Camelot Unchained. If we continue to get a large number of folks who take advantage of our refund policy, we will have no choice but to change the policy for new donors. We really don’t want to have to do that, so if you want to help support independent developers just like us, please only donate if you want to help us develop the game the rest of the way.
So pretty please with sugar on top, don’t donate to our game just to take a look at it!
