Make My MMO: Mekria, Caribbean Conquest, and RUiN hit Kickstarter (February 4, 2017)

It was a busy week for new MMO Kickstarters!

  • Mekria Online joins the Make My MMO watch list; it's a PvP-heavy MMO seeking $110,000.
  • RUiN joins up too, though as a PvP arena brawler, it's a bit on our fringes. It's already at half its goal with a month left to go. (Thanks, Zanetski!)
  • and Age of Sail MMO Caribbean Conquest is back online with its second Kickstarter (the first was canceled last year).

Read on for more on what's up with MMO crowdfunding over the last few weeks and the regular roundup of all the crowdfunded MMOs we've got our eye on!

Wow, thanks for mentioning RUiN! I've always been a fan of this site but this just kicks you guys up to another level. Really appreciate it, thank you!

You forgot "Bring Food or Become Food", the latest PvP-heavy PvP game concentrating on PvP. This survival-sandbox-PvP game will feature compelling PvP and some new PvP features in an entirely new PvP way. Soon PvP will PvP and PvP will be PvP. Did we mention PvP?

I kid, I kid. :P

Don't forget "Redside" A villain based MMO with a new Kickstarter campaign here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1405683158/redside

No offense meant by this, but that campaign is really skimpy in terms of details or concepts. It just basically says we want to make a spiritual successor to city of villians without showing any current work besides 5 very generic concept-ish art images in the trailer, which really just look like desktop backgrounds. Besides that, there is nothing on there to convince anyone to back the game. The fact the campaign is only for $35,000 makes me even more skeptical. I know it says it's so you guys can get the ball rolling but I feel like you should have the ball rolling at at least some capacity before asking for any type of funds, especially because $35,000 is no where near the amount needed to get close to a finished product.

Maybe you could add Meadow to that list ?

It's by the same people that did the Shelter games

For those that just want an mmo as a chill out experience .

But it's a released game so it doesn't really belong on this list. Anyway it sounds more like a social hub for people who play their single player games then a game in it's own right but I could be wrong about that.
