Make My MMO: Chronicles of Elyria’s $900k goal (March 5, 2016)
Indie MMO Chronicles of Elyria announced this week that it’s plotting a May Kickstarter with a $900,000 goal. The game is probably best known for its fairly original aging and death mechanics, which are tied into its business model.
Meanwhile, Star Citizen pushed alpha 2.2 live, Camelot Unchained passed its “send more programmers” stretch goal, City of Titans produced video of its “functional first pass” build, and AdventureQuest 3D joined our watch list with news of its planned October launch.
Read on for more on what’s up with MMO crowdfunding this week and the roundup of all the crowdfunded MMOs we’ve got our eye on!
