Crowdfund money is in!

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.

Indiegogo Referral Contest: The Winners

Hello everyone!

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.

Book of Lore – Chapter 4: The Strange One

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 […]

Book of Lore – Chapter 3: The Pact

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 […]

The Book of Lore: Prologue

Life had been peaceful in the world of Fœnum. The inhabitants of this world – furry, four-footed, hooved – had thrived for generations, creating culture, building societies. They lived happily, with sweet, grassy pastures at their disposal and great, expansive fields to gallop across. They were free. But it has not always been so. Long […]
