High above the clouds atop the highest of mountains lies the diminutive Empire of Huoshan. Though this principality is small, it is nonetheless remarkable. Its residents have built their home over the gaping maw of an active volcano. As expected, it also takes a remarkable creature to live in such dangerous conditions. Half horse, half […]
Mane6 – Work Stream #1 Wow, it’s been a month since the crowdfund ended already? Alright, fess up, who broke time? It was yesterday just yesterday! In any case, we’d like to tell you guys we have our first work stream scheduled for tomorrow, Saturday 21, at 3PM PDT in the Mane6 Twitch channel. (twitch.tv/manesix) […]
Who likes good news?, everyone?
Then good news, everyone!
After a constant drip (more like a pour, really) of individual paypal e-mails (over 10,000 over the course of a week. That was fun), the totality of the Indiegogo funds (sans the Indiegogo and paypal fees, of course) is now in the Mane6 paypal account. From paypal, 95% of the money will be moved into the company’s bank account, which will be taking a couple of days, and from there, it’ll start being distributed as we start covering the expenses, contracting the people required and making the necessary payments for licensing and purchase of materials.
In other words: Mane6 is now working full time on Them’s Fightin’ Herds, and our planned 18 months development cycle can officially begin.
Sheeple, fleecy and white, were born and bred in the small city-state of The Meadow. They’ve taken up permanent residence there in settlements like the world famous township of Baaaaah, the charming village of Baaaaah, and the historic capital of Baaaaah. There the Sheep have built their own quaint, barn-like cottages as homes. It’s a […]
Now that the crowdfund has ended and the small amounts refunded have stopped (that’s normal, by the way; Failed payment processing and/or last-minute upgrade refunds that didn’t come through for a couple days), we have tallied the numbers (over 176,000 referrals!), looked at the lists and determined the winners of our Referral Rewards contest.
The Fœnum world traveler is aware of the impressive level of technology its hooved inhabitants possess. Across the world, ungulates are able to build structures, irrigate water, and even create crude vehicles. But there are still societies who live lives of bygone eras, who have not changed since a time not long after ungulates learned […]
Thank you! (Again again) Have we mentioned that you guys are awesome? Because seriously, you ARE awesome. One month, 10,529 backers and a bit over $587,000 later, we emerge from this crowdfund at 135% of our original goal of $426,000 to fund the development of Them’s Fightin’ Herds. This means we reached our original goal […]
Cheers everyone! We’ve reached $486k, which is the Mac/Linux port stretch goal! Thanks you for all the support even after our initial goal! This means we will be porting Them’s Fightin’ Herds to Mac and Linux. Since we are also greenlit on Steam, everyone that will be receiving the game from pledge rewards will get […]
Today, we woke up after a night of stream-based celebration to find that the crowdfund not only passed the initial goal (436k), but is well on its way to reach the first stretch goal. Have we told you guys that you’re awesome? ‘Cause you’re pretty horn-tootin’ awesome. We have about 61 hours left on the […]
Deep in the shady forests of The Woodland resides the Order of the Horn. A reclusive, mystic clan, they consist entirely of pure white beasts that are at once like horses, deer and goats; with cloven hooves, lions’ tails and a single, spiraling horn stretching from their foreheads. Unicorns. They are an ancient race, stoic […]
Hey again everyone! We’re on the final stretch of the crowdfund now, with a bit under one week to go, and we’re nearly 80% of the way to the goal! If you’ve been holding onto your wallet for that last minute rush of adrenaline in making the goal mark, now it’s the time to throw […]
Hailing from icy nation of The Tundra, the Deerfolk of Rein live in a rather privileged society, and an unusual one at that. For generations, the robust yet graceful animals have been revered and pampered by magical, elf-like creatures called Ice Sprites. Now, Ice Sprites are extremely strange in the world of Fœnum, being the […]
Under a cornflower blue sky, filled with billowing white clouds, an enormous herd of cattle gather across an expanse of tall brown-green grass. Their noses point to the center of the herd, focused intently. Their homes, dozens of dusty covered wagons, surround the group. Mumbles of concern and curiosity mix with long, drawn out moos…
We’ve passed 250k! Go team! We’ve now smashed the 250k barrier! We’re nearly 60% there, and on the way to make Them’s Fightin’ Herds a reality! Of course, there’s still a ways to go, so let’s keep on spreading the word. Remember, we have prizes for the people who bring in the most in referred […]
Edit 2: The stream recording has been uploaded to youtube!, Have an embed! Edit: Aaaand stream’s over! Thanks to everyone for coming, hope you had fun (we certainly did)! See you next stream =) Hey folks, we’re streaming some Them’s Fightin’ Herds game/work progress in our twitch channel, come join the party!
Thanks to all of you, we’ve managed to raise almost 50% (over 200k!) towards our goal in just over a week! In addition, we’ve also been GREENLIT on Steam!! This means that all tiers starting with Guardian Sheepdog ($40) and above now grant access to the closed beta of Them’s Fightin’ Herds! We couldn’t have […]
