Nebula Online seeks crowdfunding for ‘perfect’ sci-fi MMO

    
89

What is it about outer space that elicits the cutthroat nature of sci-fi MMOs? Well, get ready to go on that adventure again, as Nebula Online is running a crowdfunding campaign to build an “old-school hardcore sci-fi” MMO that corrects the mistakes of games such as, oh, EVE Online.

“Some people may think that it is just bad copy of EVE Online. But we can say to you — it’s not,” the team posted last month. “This game was made to correct all mistakes and collect best things to make the perfect MMO.”

Nebula Online is looking for $130,000 CAD in donations to build its three-faction game with features such as landing and battling on planets. The game will hold fast to a buy-to-play model (with no cash shop) and is looking at an alpha test later this year. The team is also pushing a Steam Greenlight campaign and has released a trailer that you can watch after the jump.

But seriously, I have a feeling space games are going to have their own “MOBA Boom” at this rate.

“Hey guys, gamers these days LOOOOOOVE to throw their money at crowd funded sci-fi space game projects!  Because, space!  Let’s scrap one together on the cheap and get it out the door before the real titles in the genre get finished and let’s make some cash!”

that’s all I see from this

Yes I was wondering why a Ukrainian company is asking for CAD?

I hope they’re successful, but as indicated by the number of backers (even as early as it is), it’s going to appeal to a small subset of MMO players. Nowadays I just play MMOs for the living world feel, and not to be content for someone else’s adrenaline rush. After Wildstar’s example, I’m surprised at the number of games coming out that are aiming for that hardest of the hardcore audience.

cald TarAndfeathers I think the next couple years of tragic failure of new mmos surviving is going to disprove that statement.

I really can’t even picture myself saying “Kriptizids” with a straight face.
