Unbended forum at DarkMatters... bring it on!

Recommended Posts

gogoblender    1,464

We've been waiting for it, and it's finally here... Unbended!

Big thanks to all the supportive fans here on site as well as Unbended's creators and friends who have been chatting about the game they're creating, while giving us hope for this our community with gaming.

We've put in place a new super category here at DarkMatters, and for now, have installed a general discussion forum. We're open to suggestions... do we need a news forum now? Or a forum for videos, etc like we did with Sacred? RyanRocker you've really raised the bar with that fan video you made. A whole bunch of care and love in that, and you did a fantastic job with what you had. Thank you. I have already brought the video into this section, and I've also been noticing that across the web when we do searches for Unbended, links are already beginning to show. I'm hoping we're going to be able to offer support to Frank Rentmeister and his crew over here at DarkMatters, certainly with news, links and support articles.

I'll bring more into this section as time goes by, and if anyone here finds links to Unbended anywhere on the net, you can make a a post here in this forum, all this to bring up buzz.

Frank, that faq sounds awesome, I know we have many English players who are avidly looking for any information and tidbits around.

As well, are there any members in our community here who would perhaps be interested in joining our staff in help researching and putting up articles here? I'm figgering the more content placed together adds more to the momentum.

if you're so interested, please pm me, and I can create status and add permissions for this new section.

Here we go, finally, we have dialogue with a company, creators, and devs who actually want to listen to us and have already shown love.

We're ready to help

Bring on Unbended!

Outstanding. Very good and appropriate choice to bring Unbended into the fold here. It already feels more official and exciting. Thanks.

Got to agree with Flix here...been following progress on Unbended ever since Spock posted about it. Just feels more real now that we've embraced the game. Gogo and I spoke quite about it over the weekend and I must say I am more excited about this than I was about The game that shall not be named.

 

One thought I did have is to have a thread/sub-forum about donations and/or game progress. Via donations, several of our FDm'ers and Clan DA members already have tombstones, NPC's or towns named after them (depending on level of donation of course)

 

Also, the early support rewards will be ending shortly I think...it was mentioned somewhere and I'll see if I can dig it up later today but if you want a tombstone or something you may have to act soon.

Brilliant idea

This will bring attention to the funding drive to the fore front, and often seeing that others are getting stuff gets us excited about getting in on it too.

We are looking at the Town for DarkMatters, but after doing the CDN calculations for 299 EU it is coming 450 dollars. It's pricey, but maybe we'll find a way. Either that or a statue DarkMatters of us there?

:4rofl:

Wouldn't DarkMatters be a better name for a pub or something? A town is a tad too much.

Just call it

 

Obscura Quae

 

I think that is the latin translation for Dark Matters.....Sounds kind of cool to me for a town name....like it's some type of dark mysterious and maybe magical place to go (like this forum can be :D )

Looking for options, yes DarkMatters as town could be not "relevantesque" ? :lol: ...maybe other options exist for us that the Devs can help with depending on how they are fleshing out their world.

It does sound good in Latin, maybe both?

All the feedback we're getting from the devs has already made this game for me one of the best game anticapatory moments. If we've got Devs who care to give us this kind of value so early, the future is looking bright

I like that name knuckles! If we had a town, we could then have a bar called DarkMatters too?

 

I would totally chip in for a combined FDM donation :)

Wait, you ingeniously named your forum after a biological byproduct?

I thought all this time it was more like "Very serious and uncomfortable issues"...

I don't know if it's a breach of etiquette, but I've been visiting all the high profile Sacred 3 reviews on youtube and posting about Unbended to try to raise awareness and get people visiting the Unbended site and DarkMatters. I think a few more voices chiming in with "yeah Unbended sounds cool" wherever you can think of (youtube, other gaming sites, etc.) might help out some.

Ha, Flix, this is awesome! It's just about the best way to target the best demographic for this game, and provide them with a future-dated fix!

Well I guess they were flagged as spam or something because my comments seem to be invisible unless I'm logged into the account that made them. Oh well, I tried...

 

I'll see what else I can think of.

Unless they have some sort of automatic filter for the word "Unbended", I would probably say to drop the name in a natural way while commenting on the subject of the video or whatever. It could also be the presence of a link in a comment which may make the automatic filters consider it to be SPAM. Lots of spammers use links in their posts, so even I have a habit of skipping over any post I see that has a link in it.

 

Another thing that can be done would be to upvote any comments on those sites that bring up Unbended, just to bring those comments greater prominence. It's not even insincere since I can see fans of Sacred 2 who were upset by Sacred 3 be genuinely excited and eager for Unbended.

 

But, yeah, I'm not sure what you posted, but I would think that including a link would trigger the filters on a site like Youtube. I would probably try something like "Sacred 3 seems a bit too linear to me, to be honest. I prefer a more robust form of character development and exploration, like what is being done for the upcoming game Unbended. I would probably get someone who, like me, was underwhelmed with Sacred 3 to pay a visit to a site like DarkMatters where they can get a better feel for how much more an ARPG can be." <---- Something like that stays on topic, gives the Google Keywords for people to search and helps let people be aware that not all ARPGs are like Sacred 3. Even the criticism of Sacred 3 is kept polite and to the point, which will probably echo the feelings of someone who never played the earlier games and just assumed that all of them might be boring.

 

Now if you posted something similar to what I just suggested and still got flagged for spam, then it was probably whomever posted the video just censoring anything that brought up other games that Sacred 3 would be unfavorably compared to.

Wow, Flix, I'm sorry I missed this

Is this issue still going on?

Well it was just a youtube issue. Given the speed with which my comments disappeared from multiple videos it was probably posting a link that triggered an auto-spam filter.
