WAKFU Animated Series: New Kickstarter Goal Challenge!

WAKFU Animated Series: New Kickstarter Goal Challenge!
2014-02-08 15:45 26
As the Kickstarter campaign continues to receive great support from our fans from all over the world, how can we describe the excitement at Ankama right now? And what new exciting goal or challenge may lie ahead for us...

We can tell you all about employees frozen in front of their screens while looking at the Kickstarter page during their break, or those who are talking about your comments in the hallways, or even those who still can’t believe the excitement generated overseas by the series! But we will talk more about Tot, who every day, has done all the things we just mentioned...

Tot is the passionate kind. While devoted to his community, he also knows how to be frank with them. And we must recognize a quality in him, which is that he knows how to "rise to the challenge," when he gets the chance to do it. He has seen all your comments and responses and like the rest of us, at first he found it hard to realize that this is really happening... But as the wonder and amazement of your support sunk in, he proclaimed that it is our turn to show you how much we believe in our series and our heroes.

So how about giving Tot the opportunity to make another lasting impression, to create something new that will be part of WAKFU’s history?

OK, so let’s go further! And what if we offered you a new stretch goal, this one more ambitious than the previous ones? As you know, our dream is to keep our creative freedom and let our characters evolve beyond the rules of people with their eyes on the bottom line. We also think that Kickstarter is a very powerful tool that can help us achieve this goal.

So here it comes! Drum rolls…

We are offering you the chance to participate with us in creating an exclusive episode of Wakfu, without being tied to any broadcast television constraints.

You may wonder what the background story will be. We have several ideas in mind, including a prologue to WAKFU Season 3…!  And for this new stretch goal, we are raising the stakes up to $450,000 CAD. Will you be part of this challenge?

I think Tot is more into animation, comics and story writing than online games Hardly seen him on the french forum as well. Except for the animated series threads. Sometimes, very rarely, he shows up there.

(Btw Tot ist actually Anthony and the An in Ankama )

Aahh ok. I know he is busy, but he should at least speak to us more often.(3-4 times a year?)

Tot is the alpha and omega, basically. Co-founder, CEO, creative director on a lot of Ankama's products, writer for the animated series...

Who is Tot exactly and what does he do? (And I don't mean the bearded warrior alter ego lol)

I look forward to this projects progress!

As an aside to anyone complaining about the game, this is an entirely separate entity. I guarantee you no physical content from the Wakfu animation series will translate into direct game content with the possible exception of artistic inspiration.

HOWEVER, this venture ABSOLUTELY helps the game because an English release of the series and the associated hype brought about by the project should offer a SIGNIFICANT advertisement for our English speaking and international communities to pick up the game. If that doesn't make you happy then, I'm sorry, but it's GREAT NEWS. I look forward to an influx of players and my only hope is that when it comes to us, Ankama has fixed the EARLY to MID game to appeal to them. (Which won't make most of the complainers happy anyway, so for now patience is a virtue.)

"But as the wonder and amazement of your support sunk in, he proclaimed that it is our turn to show you how much we believe" So... Improve the Dofus and Wakfu support system and iron out bugs pmbefore release like you're supposed to? Please? Pretty please with Bow Meow hairs on top? No, but seriously. I wish I could donate. CAD? Not my currency. I live in the UK. I want to donate and watch the anime in front of my tellybox.
