Well, that’s a turnup for the books. Read the press release here. I’m sure there will be a press blitz shortly.
The core concept for the new MMORPG focuses tightly on three key elements, RvR, housing and a true player-owned economy.
“We believe there’s a small yet viable audience of fans who are very keen to play this type of MMORPG,” stated Mark Jacobs. “However, tightly focused niche games don’t necessarily hold great appeal for traditional publishers who are looking toward the mass market. We see Kickstarter as the best way to reach out directly to the people who will actually play our game for help in funding its creation.”
Also, no one is counting but that means at least one of my annual predictions for 2013 is actually going to be true! Win.
