Casino RPG by Goldfire StudiosGoldfire Studios continues to do its best to make sure that everyone has an opportunity to find and play its hit game Casino RPG. To that end, Goldfire has launched Casino RPG on Desura. This allows anyone who uses the Desura client to launch the game directly from their computer rather than having to launch the game through their browser.

I gave the game and Desura client a quick go and it all seemed rather seamless and responsive. With the game being free of charge for Desura users, it looks like it will be a great way for Goldfire to attract a lot of new players.

If Goldfire keeps this up, they will have a much larger game on their hands. Best of luck.

Casino RPG Launches TodayCasino RPG has finally made it out of beta and has released its full version to the public. Developed by Goldfire Studios, Casino RPG is the first gaming Kickstarter success from Oklahoma.

We have followed development on Casino RPG since its Kickstarter and are excited that it has reached this point. Now it is up to Goldfire to maintain the success they have had so far.

Now it is time for you to check it out and play it. It is free to play, just set up an account on the Goldfire Network and get started.

Casino RPG by Goldfire StudiosCasino RPG is coming. Goldfire Studios has announced that Casino RPG will be exiting Beta and making its full debut on April 16. This is just two weeks away. This is the capstone of the significant progress the game has made over the last couple of years.

In February 2013, Goldfire successfully finished the Casino RPG Kickstarter. Since then, the game has been in active development. In September of 2013, they launched the official Beta for the game. During that time, they regularly provided new updates, features and bug fixes. Now they are ready to pull it out of that development phase and focus on what is next. Continue Reading

Casino RPG by Goldfire StudiosLast week saw two new updates to Goldfire Studios’ Kickstarter success Casino RPG. These updates have added new themes for the in-game slot machines, new missions and a new feature to make it easier for players to buy land for the first time. These latest updates now bring four consecutive updates that have included new features to the game. New features had been a bit more sporadic before this.

From version v1.0.0-b175:

FEATURE Real Estate Offices will now offer a free taxi ride to another office with open land for players that don’t already own land.
FEATURE There are now a few new chip race missions scattered throughout the city.

From version v1.0.0-b174:

FEATURE New slot theme! Up until now the only slot game you could play was ‘Classic Slots.’ We are now excited to announce the release of ‘Reel Saloon,’ which is a western themed slot game. You can play this by walking up to one of the new western-themed slot machines in a casino that has one.
FEATURE In addition to the 3 new slot machine items (which must be unlocked from the bonus game on the new slot theme), we’ve added 27 new western themed items for use in and out of your casinos.

UPDATE: And just like that, we are at v1.0.0-b176:

FEATURE You can now close your casino. Why would you want to do this you ask? Well, the most common scenario is when someone opens their casino too early and weren’t really ready for the rush of customers and costs associated with them. So, if you are a Citizen (which everyone is during beta) or during the first two weeks your casino is open, you can close your casino’s doors by going to the outdoor building editor.

With the game at version v1.0.0-b176, Goldfire has also provided a lot of bug fixes that should further smooth out the gameplay.

In addition to the updates to the game, Goldfire is also looking to fill a volunteer Community Ambassador position. The position is described as following:

Community is very important in CasinoRPG, and we are now at a point where we are looking for volunteers that want to help in that effort. Community Ambassadors (CA’s for short) have limited chat moderation tools, but their main goal is to help strengthen the community by helping out other players and helping to keep things fun, friendly and civil in chat. If this is something that would interest you, please answer the below questions to be considered for the team.

In an online multiplayer game like Casino RPG, great community ambassadors have an incredible role to play in ensuring that the game is fun for all involved. These volunteers are often the first line of support for players.

Casino RPG Public Beta

Today is the day to get in on the hot casino action if you were not part of the limited Kickstarter backed closed beta of Oklahoma’s own Casino RPG by GoldFire Studios. This public launch means an end to game data resets and a preservation of the hard work you put into building your own casino empire. In an email message sent out today they lay out the announcement.

We are excited to announce that CasinoRPG is now in open beta and there will be no more resets! Over a year of development and closed beta testing has gone into this release, and we are really proud of the results.

In case you forgot, CasinoRPG is a massively multiplayer online game that merges role-playing, tycoon and city-building with casino games like poker, blackjack and slots. Like all of our games, CasinoRPG can be played for free right from your browser. Continue Reading

Casino RPG by Goldfire StudiosLast Night, Goldfire Studios announced the launch date for the public beta of Casino RPG. In their biweekly fireside chat, James Simpson and Luke Simkins discussed the progress of their game and their preparations for the coming public beta. The date they announced is September 3, 2013.

One particular aspect of the public beta is the end of game resets, the clearing of game data and starting all players over. They have done that a couple of times during the closed beta and they may do at least one more before the public beta. However, once the public beta starts, they will be ending the practice. They recommend going crazy with your casino at that point.

You can view the full fireside chat over on LiveStream.

Goldfire Studio’s game Casino RPG has gotten itself a new and improved trailer. This trailer is based on the post Kickstarter closed beta of the game. It shows off the improved UI and world.

The game looks to be coming along quite nicely and Goldfire is working toward opening up the beta soon. We will let you know as soon as that happens.

There is also a side by side comparison of the new trailer vs the one used during the Kickstarter. This shows off nearly all the improvements to the game in the six months since the Kickstarter closed. You can read the rest of the announcements and watch the video at Goldfire’s blog.

Earlier last week, Goldfire Studios announced the opening of its Kickstarter campaign for Casino RPG, the latest game from the studio. This campaign has been live for about a week and has raised over $6,500. With it funding goal of $20,000, Goldfire seems well on its way to reach and potentially exceed its target.

Casino RPG will be a free to play game that promises to offer a fair paid experience, meaning it will not be “pay to win”. The game will focus its core gameplay around building a career in the casino business starting at the bottom and working your way up to a multi-casino empire. What makes this game more than a tycoon style game is the multiplayer and social aspects. Not only can you build a casino and have players explore it and play the games, you can also visit the casinos of other players and try to win big.

Another interesting aspect of this game is the underlying technology is built on the platform commonly referred to as HTML5. According to the Kickstarter, this technology was chosen as it allows players on all compatible devices to play the same game with the same experiences. With the growing popularity of HTML5 in the game landscape, this puts Goldfire at the forefront of this new market.

CasinoRPG is built with the latest in web technologies, often grouped under the term HTML5. What this means for players is that there is no need to download the game, run Adobe Flash, open a Java applet or install a plugin like Unity Player. You simply point your browser (on virtually any modern device) to the CasinoRPG website, and you are instantly loaded into the game world, right where you left off. This allows us to do some amazing things that have never been possible before, like providing the same great game experience across devices, while being able to play with your friends in real-time, no matter what device they are playing from.

We wish Goldfire and Casino RPG the best of luck in the coming weeks and hope that this Kickstarter reaches its funding goals.
