I had heard that some people noticed that when they donated that the funds didn't go towards the game but went to the server instead.

The kickstarter was to fund a minecraft mod of Redwall Abbey.
This is incorrect. The kickstarter was to fund a fullscale platform game, one of the stretch goals was a minecraft Redwall Server. The server exists , but is stuck in 1.7.2. The full game is under development by Soma Games.
That correction was incorrect. It was actually for just the Minecraft map, but the purpose was deeper than that. It was meant to test the waters to see how well a Redwall video game would be received, and the amount of feedback was enough for them to move forward with the actual game itself. I am of the belief that this is due in no small part to the forum here contributing heavily alongside, the Redwall Wiki. To the best of my knowledge, Soma Games is seeking final funding for the project from private investors, so we should hopefully have news soon (as in a month or two, at least). Fingers crossed!

Ah. Pardon me. I only came on late in the effort.

True worth is in being, not seeming-
In doing, each day that goes by,
Some little good- not in dreaming
Of great things to do by and by.
For whatever men say in their blindness
And spite of the fancies of youth,
There's nothing so kingly as kindness
And nothing so royal as truth.

Courage: not only the willingness to die manfully, but also the determination to live decently.
It is not the armor but the heart that makes a man a knight

No.  The Minecraft Redwall map was an extra, side project.  An actual video game is being worked on.

Unfortunately, the video game isn't finished yet. :-\  The creators' website is here, though I don't know when it was last updated. :P  But anyway, you can rest assured that it is still being worked on and is actually gonna go through!

Update from Soma. Looks like they're finally getting a proper start after dealing with pain-in-the-tail litigation.

It’s been a while, but we’re still plugging along. Yes it’s still in development, and yes everything is going really well. There were many many hoops to jump through on the legal side of things that required a lot of time and energy, but now we’re off and running.

 In the meantime, we need to hear more from you. What do you want Redwall to look like? What is it about Redwall that is absolutely essential? What would you not be able to do without? We have regular discussions going up on Facebook, so come talk to us!

Someone with a Facebook account could make a thread, take suggestions, and then post in on Facebook.

 A few suggestions:

•Give players the opportunity to show mercy to enemies, and allow this to affect how the characters you interact with perceive you.

•Along with the events of the main story, include randomly-generated encounters, such as vermin camps or woodlander houses.

•Include lore books.

I am very eager for this game's release. I haven't read any of the Redwall books for years, and it's great knowing that there will be a way for me to continue those adventures I read about oh so many years ago.        .....Or I could just re-read the series, but high school hates free time, so...... bummer

Hi all! Just wanted to let you all know that Soma Games has been making headway on game development after many months of legal hurdles. They have been posting screenshots, renders, concept art, and videos on their company Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/SomaGames/), as well as the game's official development Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/RedwallGame/).

They have just posted a video of their Cavern Hole render using the in-game engine. Check it out! ---> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iCqeKPf2Zks
