As promised, developers Flaming Fowl Studios, made up of ex-Lionhead team members, has launched its Kickstarter fund raising campaign for Fable Fortune, a free-to-play digital card game set in Microsoft's Fable universe. It will be released for the Xbox One and PC in early 2017.
The minimum goal for the campaign to be successful is $365,385, or £250,000, but the game does have a number of stretch goals to add content, all the way to £700,000 ( about $1,025,314) to fully fund the Xbox One version. Here is Flaming Fowl's humorous description of Fable Fortune:
Fable Fortune was in development at Lionhead for 18 months before Microsoft made the decision to close the developer earlier this year. The team members of Flaming Fowl have received permission from Microsoft to continue its development. The game will be made in collaboration with another UK developer, Mediatonic. Android and iOS versions of Fable Fortune are also planned for sometime in the future.
