Let's get Wakfunding!

As you already know, after two seasons and three special episodes, the WAKFU series is back for a third season. We're on the right track to thrill you with visual delights and stories that warm your heart, but there's still a long way to go. As usual, we've been looking for a solution that's a little more off the beaten track...

Fully financing an animation project without compromise is a real struggle. Finding the right partners, discussing with them, trying to convince them and tempering the changes they would like to make takes time.

On the other hand, we do have one solid pillar: Our community. You like what we do, the way we do it, and we already have your support. Who better to form a partnership with than you?

 

The WAKFUNDING concept

As we've already said, progress on WAKFU season 3 is coming along well.
But if we want to maintain the same level of quality until the end, we need to find some additional funding...

So, how can we continue this project with the same ambitions and freedom, counting on you, BUT without asking you to contribute more than you already do on a daily basis? The answer's simple. WE'RE the ones who are going to offer you even MORE!

How about if we offer you some new items and packs? And what if these exclusive items and packs finance our latest ambitions for WAKFU season 3?

Whether you play DOFUS or WAKFU, or you're simply a fan of the series, the aim of Wakfunding is to establish a privileged exchange between YOU and US, to build something together, and for everyone to come out a winner.


Every Thursday throughout November, we will be offering you new items and packs. Treat yourself and enjoy the satisfaction of knowing that you're contributing to the creation of your favorite animated series! And that's not all! Everyone who contributes to Wakfunding will get digital bonuses from the series in December:
  • Kim Etinoff's presentation: Creating season 3's characters (French language, with English subtitles)
  • Vincent Lamassonne's presentation: Season 3's backgrounds (French language, with English subtitles)
  • Season 3 concept art collection
  • Background pack

WAKFUNDING FAQ

 

Here are some answers to some of the most frequently asked questions we've seen over recent days about Wakfunding:
 

How is the financing for season 3 different?

Starting production for season 3 took an enormous amount of effort. For reasons relating to orders and budgets, this season only has 13 episodes. The two distributors who pre-ordered the series from us are Netflix and France 4. As France 3 is no longer involved, the allocation we receive from France Télévision Group's budget is twice as small, for a season that has to be two twice as successful, technically speaking.

Luckily, in France, we can receive assistance from the CNC, but this is dependent on the amount of money invested by distributors. The higher the budget, the more assistance you can get from the CNC. As it stands, the financing we receive from the distributors is too low, and we could potentially not be able to receive this assistance. We therefore find ourselves in a situation where, to continue our series, we have to find alternative solutions.

Wakfunding's aim is to achieve the following points:

  • Complete these 13 episodes with the quality they deserve;
  • Prove to the CNC that our series receives sufficient funding to be eligible for assistance;
  • Find out if a system of this type could be used to finance the next 13 episodes.
 

How is WAKFUNDING coming along after the first two weeks?

Up until now, it's looking pretty positive! Above all, we want you to know that we're staying level-headed about this. We've always been aware that it would be difficult to raise the remaining budget for season 3 in one month. Nevertheless, we can see that the community is reacting very positively and showing a lot of enthusiasm, which gives us hope for the future. It's still too early to proclaim a victory, but up to now, players are answering our call for help, and there's every chance that we might be pleasantly surprised.
 

Why not put the season 3 Blu-Ray box set up for pre-order?

The Blu-Ray will be produced by the France Télévision group. For the time being, we don't yet know how many copies there will be, or what languages will be included on the disk. What's more, we still have to sign international distribution agreements, which can limit our room for maneuver with regards to shipping the Blu-Ray to certain countries. Wakfunding is an international project, but we don't have enough visibility to be able to commit to shipping the Blu-Ray on a global scale, and we don't want to have to back out of our promises. Don't worry, though, the series will be internationally available via other channels, starting with Netflix. The series will be localized depending on the geographical distribution zones.

Wakfunding is over, it raised 251 841 Euros.

 

ng-bilan-wakfunding.jpg
Who know that the relationship we have with our community is special, and that you're the main reason we exist. You've proved it to us once again, which is why Tot wanted to thank you…
 
Dear Wakfunders,

It's time to take stock of the Wakfunding operation which ended yesterday.
Let's not beat around the bush: we're delighted with the results.
In total, the operation raised 251,841 euros. This money will allow us to bring financing for season 3 of Wakfu to a close. Thank you very much to all of you.

But more than the sum in itself, it's what it stands for that is most touching to us.
You love our creations, and have proved so by supporting us. We've received many messages of encouragement throughout this month, and in the end, that's what we needed most. I'd also like to take this opportunity to give a little wink to Regis of Toulouse for his very touching letter, received yesterday.

I've already talked about it many times on the forums, but it's quite hard to stay the course as we have been doing for over 15 years now. We love our work, and the goal of most of us is to entertain you, to amuse you…
If I had to sum up our jobs in a very naive way, I'd say our task is to "entertain you while being entertained ourselves". That may seem a little silly, but I think it's impossible to have a profound effect on people through a creative project – of whatever kind – without taking delight in developing it and without putting a little bit of who we are into it.
After 15 years of creations of all kinds, it's you we need the most to stay the course. We need your encouragement and support. It's vital for our morale and our desire to keep going for another 15 years.
And this Wakfunding is typically the kind of project that warms our hearts. We hesitated for a long time before launching this operation. Even internally, 90% of Ankamians thought it was a mistake, and that we were going to be slaughtered on the forums. On the contrary, you proved to us that you'd be there when we needed you. And honestly, that's the best Christmas present you could have given us.

We'll now be able to finish off our lovely little season 3 much more serenely.
Thank you for having been there, and see you soon,

Tot


We couldn't properly thank you without a quick word from Guillaume, who has followed the WAKFUNDING project from start to end, and was able to bring all the necessary skills together from Ankama's teams.
 

Hi Wakfunders! It's Guillaume ("Gilou" to some), I won't be long. I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for having rallied around this project! The Ankamians needed a lot of energy for it, and even if it wasn't always easy, they've given it their all to give you great content under the best possible conditions. We're currently putting the finishing touches on the digital gifts related to season 3, and we'll pass them on to you as soon as possible over the course of the month. See you soon!

We'll come back to the details of WAKFUNDING very shortly…
It's only been closed for a short while, so give us a bit of time, and you'll find out some key figures and really interesting information regarding it in the next Letter to the Community: something new, beautiful, and… to be continued!

Well, it's obvious that ankama have hired a shit ton more staff recently as they've produced far more expansions, releases and updates in the past year than the whole of Dofus's other years of life combined, so maybe they've hired someone with half a brain who managed to work out that the player base is what's most important to a gaming company :^)
