While the raised amount falls short of the mark, Pixelmage Games CEO John Smedley posted a comment on the campaign’s page stating that the game’s Alpha 3 will continue as scheduled for late October, with no indication that the game’s development is being adjusted. Additionally, the funds raised will still be collected and used by the developers.

“While it’s short of what we were looking for, it’s helping us immensely,” said Smedley in his post. “We sincerely appreciate all of your support.”

This marks the second time crowdfunding for the game has missed its target, with the title’s initial Kickstarter campaign cancelled after one week. Despite this, the game still has fiscal backing from outside investors.

Our Thoughts

Our excitement for Hero’s Song isn’t completely cooled by the underperforming Indiegogo campaign, and we truly hope that the team at Pixelmage will still meet their timeline as close as possible. Hero’s Song looks like the sort of title that can change MMOs and we hope it stays on track.
