Embers of Caerus has a new Faction Wars competition in the works, and the devs at Forsaken Studios are looking to drum up interest in their fantasy sandbox as well as reward players who are already invested in the project.

Personally I like to see this kind of community engagement, particularly when it comes to indie projects, but I'm also somewhat wary of hitching my wagon to a crowdfunded game that may or may not see the light of day (and if it does, it may or may not be what I'm looking for in terms of gameplay). What about you, morning folk? Do you get involved in early pre-release communities, or do you watch and wait?
