Just found out about this game and wanted to share it with the community. It looks to be more of a WoW type MMO than Dogma: Eternal Night with a bit more of that cartoonish look rather than the dark realistic look the dev team here is going for. Still looks interesting though. Maybe both communities can help get these two games funded so we can sink our fangs into both of them!

Here's the website:

They also have a patreon site they are using for funding, although I can't say I'm a big fan of the monthly payment for a game that isn't playable yet.

 Looks quite good and the concept art has nudity!

I'll have to give both of these a go, I fear I may end up playing Shadow's a bit more due to my laptop being quite crap and I probs won't be able to play Dogma..

As long as your laptop isn't 12yrs old, if it can run most games on low settings, you should be fine with ours. Granted being a Baron backer, you'll be able to play during beta as we optimize the builds and see for yourself :) 

Worst  Concept Arts that i saw.

So, for comparison.. Lets say I can run the game Elder Scrolls Tamriel Unlimited on low with about 30-40 fps and 20-30 in cities, will I fair okay on Dogma?

Once optimizations are in place, etc after much testing, yes your PC should run our game the same if not better.

Thank you for the replies :P

Maybe a bit off topic, but I wonder whatever happened to this game, Unveiled: the supernatural?? For Shadow's Kiss, the graphics are very cartoony like you mention. I agree highly on that. I'd prefer something more realistic and dark like dogma and world of darkness. Although the combat in unveiled seemed like it would be too arcade like for me, or just like in Moonlight Online which seems it might have too much fantasy mixed into it, making it feel like you're playing another wow or Forsaken World.

I do not know why I go on. I do not know what I’m really searching for. Maybe it’s just simply in the beauty of the world which sometimes is well hidden in its ugliness.

I also prefer less cartoony graphics. And I am not very fond of patreon. So it's not my cup of tea. Also let's see if the site goes online again and it's just a temporary problem.

About Unveiled the Supernatural (never heard of this one before), it seems to be dead. You find nothing about it since 2011, only people asking what happened. And someone who asked the devs on facebook did not get an answer.

War. War never changes.Since the dawn of humankind, when our ancestors first discovered the killing power of rock and bone, blood has been spilled in the name of everything: from God to justice to simple, psychotic rage. 

I'm getting the same error on the Shadow's Kiss website, but their patreon page:

https://www.patreon.com/shadowskiss?ty=h

was just updated yesterday with a picture. Also the news they are allowing fang customization... trying to keep up with Dogma apparently.

 

Looking at Maverick's (Unveiled devs) webpage, it seems like they are exclusively focused on mobile game development with no mention of the MMO. Shame too, never heard of it but it looks like it could have been interesting.

Opps! I accidentally hit report on your comment when I really wanted to do a quote reply thing instead. Sorry about that. Don't know how to undo that. Anyway, I just wanted to say that, if I remember correctly, I think I remember reading somewhere a long time ago, that unveiled was being played for a little while by people, but it wasn't doing well because of the heavy grindyness of it. I don't know if it eventually got cancelled or if it really did become dead before it got released.

I do not know why I go on. I do not know what I’m really searching for. Maybe it’s just simply in the beauty of the world which sometimes is well hidden in its ugliness. 

Shadow's Kiss doesn't have any forums, does it?

A bit alarming, IMO.

Mhm, a lack of a Forum at this stage is a bit unusual isn't it? *nods*

What really confuddles me is that apparently their UX designer is also the lead UX designer on Crowfall...

Does that mean the guy is working on two different crowd funded MMOs for two different companies at the same time?*tilts her head*

Well, it's still worth keeping an eye on. After this long drought, more vampire games = more yay!

Dogma eternal night is still better :)

I got into Shadows Kiss' preview and its pretty bad.

I have had more enjoyment out of D:EN's character creator and just from this i can tell eternal night is far more polished and quality, and appealing. 

When it comes to a hamburger made out of cardboard, or a juicy one of beef. 

Wheres the beef!!! Hahaha 

Dont waste your money...

Yeah .... bottom line Dogma is the superior game.

I really don't like the feel of it. I think I'll stick with Dogma.

Good choice :)

They're on Kickstarter for those interested, their project was funded in 1-2 days.  I backed them up, by getting the alpha + beta + final game + cavern lair + werewolf pet + summon White Wolf Power at 30S.  I was also checking out their game, so I'm glad that one is funded for the core vampire game, and their streched goals add more things, the crafting aspect of the game, one of the streched goals was reached. The next is ritual magic system, after that it's other playable factions like mages, zombies and werewolves.  Anyway. just sharing for those interested...
