oh snap, is this the project Kaylem is involved with?
Thankfully I already support the project and will continue to do so.
Wish I could get the signed sheet by Malukah.

Sounds good on paper. But executing it, is a whole new ball game. Specially with all the features they want, realistically they are going to have to cut alot of those features.
Remember Darkfall and Mortal Online sounding just as promising years before release
Still, gonna keep an eye on it and hope they get funding.

Famer would undoubtedly agree with you on that, but 50 people working for free and reaching out to the community is a great place to start. They are building off of sandbox games that they have seen succeed and one's they have seen fail.
First, you need ideas. Next, you need money. Finally, you need execution.
Let's see if they get the money, then we'll see where this goes. I think it has a good shot at being a TRUE sandbox, although I did not like the developers tangent on "protecting players from being griefed." My only qualm haha.

Sounds interesting. Honestly though a good part of those features were Darkfall pre-release features, and look what became of that. Or MO for that matter...
But if they can create a solid, clean core game with good combat systems first, then they'll have my attention. Other features can be added later, but I would like to see a solid core first.

cant remember how many failed indie MMO projects ive followed through the years. I expect this to be next on the line.
Email I received about the kickstarter:
We just wanted to say how humbled we are with the show of support we have received so far!
Reaching a quarter of our funding goal in just 17 short hours is amazing, and really gives us hope. Not just about reaching our target, but also that we aren't the only ones who truly believe that the MMORPG market needs to change, and we aren't the only ones willing to stand up and send a CLEAR and LOUD message to producers and large game companies that indie studios are leading the march this time. Change is coming.
The message is this: The gaming community is ready for a change. It is ready to stop having its hand held, or its game-play directed down a fixed path. It is ready for real freedom to play the game however they wish. It is ready for game companies to take risks, to innovate, and to show that the gaming community will be there to support them when they do.
Now all we need to do is keep this momentum building! Tell your friends, your relatives, your relatives friends, your friends relatives! Let people know what we are trying to do here, and get that message out there!
Vive la Revolution!
27 days to go y'all.

Looks like someone donated $10k.
$25,000 GOAL? What are they planning on doing with that pocket change? They sure aren't developing a game over a 4 year period

Hey, I want to see change in the MMO scene as much as anyone else. I keep shouting emergent gameplay and classless roles... The fact that they claim four years till release in 2016. That tells me they have almost nothing completed besides concept art, feature list and some music? What if they run into more problems during the development cycle? Have they factored those in?
But I worry that some of the goodwill via kickstart might be taken advantage of. And building a MMO is one of the hardest sort of games you can think to build. Even for veteran teams.
If I were them, I would just start very simply and get things right as they go on. Then add the more complicated features in layers. And they have to be 100% transparently clear in how things are being put in.
The big problem Mortal Online had was they promised a similar long list like this team is. And then they struggled out of the gate with even the most basic requirements of an MMO...combat. Crafting. Gathering. And then the players had a hard time understanding why 90% of the game was missing including the much heralded capital city (Which is supposedly, now getting put in. Supposedly, we promise!) I posted then that they should not release their very much raw and unbaked, but they did anyway...
