Although originally announced
to start on October 21st, Trials of Ascension's Kickstarter
was delayed a couple of days, and finally launched today. Now that its hat is thrown into the crowdfunding ring
hopes to garner enough player support to bring this sandbox with a skill system, dynamic spawning, and multi-step crafting to fruition. If you want to get a quick glimpse of the world and hear the game's philosophy straight from the dev's mouth, the campaign page offers a video clip along with a look at the various backer reward packs available.
