Kickstarter Update Reference List

I thought it would be nice if we had a condensed easy-reference list of all the Kickstarter updates containing information about Titan City and the game! Below I've included links to all updates containing such information, and they have been categorized by their information type. I hope this will provide some easy access to the little information we currently have about the game. I'll attempt to keep this topic updated with applicable updates as they are released.

DISCLAIMER: As many of the updates disclaim for themselves, any info about the game's lore or mechanics presented in these updates should be taken as goals and/or prospects, not reality. Things are subject to change prior to the release.

I agree, I miss the Dev Digest (I think that's what it was called). Unfortunately, that would be a little hard for me to set up without access to the forum code :P

Admittedly, when I compiled the list, I skipped a number of updates. I was focusing only on updates that contained information specific to the game development, team, or lore, so that new members (who probably were not around when the Kickstarter was in progress) would not have to sift through all of the updates to find the information they were looking for.

Because I don't have mod options ;).
If the powers-that-be deem this relevant/important enough to be pinned, wonderful! If not, I'll just try to keep it toward the top of the page by posting when a new update is added.

So, i'd taken a project of the last few days of going over all the KS updates and summarizing them in a Google Doc. Maybe that could be merged with this thread, or made into it's own. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1PdfLX58KSW0RzwqYDf9THYSCa3tyti3qhnApTK9h3yI/edit?usp=sharing

Warning: it has stronger focus on mechanics than it does on Lore. It also glosses over KS-related updates, since i missed the boat on that and couldn't access them.

I called Amazon and they have a record of it. and that is all they can say. I aksed for the email and the log in. its a angry phone call with Amazon. they are very rude. yelling at me about log in fist. well how the hell do I do that when I lost the information! God its like teaching a brick all to sing and dance while at the same time teach a dog to drive a F1 racer around a track at 200 miles per hour. Kill it!
I go on the kickstarter reguardingthis COT then made a new account. ask questions. no one answered no a one. I had been ask this questions for about 2 years now.

one other think Google also

one other think Google also have the worst phone service. there instruction is log in first. no phone support. how do I log in a gmail account when I lost all the information of the log in name and password? the recovery system is the worst. I do not have the date when I made the account and the date when I last log in. they only demand for information that I lost. how many people are going to put down every little detail of every little thing? No one!

Hey savecityofheroes,

I want to let you know that I am not actually a staff member with Missing Worlds Media. As much as I'd like to be, I'm just a guy who had some free time and categorized the Kickstarter updates. I tried to tell you that after your previous private message to me, but you blocked me before I could. (I do not blame you, considering how frustrating your situation is, and considering that I failed to answer your question.)

Warcabbit, who is a staff member with Missing Worlds Media, made it sound like he was prepared to help you in this post, which was a reply to the topic you posted last week requesting the same help you are requesting here. I would drop him a private message, or reply to that topic you started, and he can probably help you out much better than I can.

Hope that works!

Hi Winter,

Hi Winter,

Just wanted to say thanks for compiling this list. It is a big help when I am trying to reference previous kickstarter communications.

Ha! Thank you. There were a few times I updated 3 at a time, but I think that's the furthest behind I was at any one point :P

Is there a beta or any way to play the game? Has it come out yet? I have been searching for a couple of hours to see what happened to COV and COH because I stopped playing in 2007 because of my age at the time and I just found out that it has been shut down :( is this game close to completion? I have so many questions lol

I miss COV

Hi Bighomiegreg, and welcome to the forums. As a disclaimer, I do not actually work with/for Missing Worlds Media (the team behind City of Titans). I just made this topic because I had some time on my hands one day, and I knew it would be useful, so I keep it up to date as updates are published. With that said, I'll try to answer your questions!

As far as the development progress of City of Titans, nearly everything we (the anxious awaiting players) have been told can be found in the Kickstarter updates listed in this topic. The game is far from "close to completion" though.

The first thing we will see is the game's Avatar Builder (character creator), which is being designed rather cleverly: it will be a stand-alone program/application (available for Windows, Mac OS, Android, and iOS) that will allow us to make characters outside the game, then upload them to the game later. It will be a nice appetizer to the game, and is great for those moments when you have a character idea, but do not necessarily have the time (or ability) to log onto the game and create it. We haven't been given a release date for that (no one wants to make promises they cannot keep, and who can blame them), but I believe the goal is for some time this year.

As for when the game will go into alpha and beta testing stages, no one knows. Since Missing Worlds Media is comprised entirely of volunteers, the progress all depends on how much of their time is available to devote to the game. All we can do is encourage them and have patience.

Definitely devote some time to reading through the Kickstarter Updates, specifically the ones under the "Design and Mechanics" heading. That will give you a good idea of some of the wonderful things planned for the game.

Winter, kudos to you for putting this thread together and for patiently helping others in their quests for more information. I would be very surprised if our Titan Team didn't contact you about encouraging you to join the PR department. Thanks for your efforts!

They also serve, who only stand and wait.

Kiyori Anoyui, Sealdy,

Kiyori Anoyui, Sealdy, StellarAgent: Glad you guys are getting use out of it! And S.A., the thumbs up are appreciated. It is a relatively easy task to keep it up to date, so as long as it continues to be useful, I am happy to keep it going. That said, it is always nice when people chime in to remind me that it is still a good resource. So thanks :)
