Make My MMO: February 28, 2015

Make My MMO

This week in MMO crowdfunding news, Crowfall basically blotted out the sun. The “throne war simulator” surpassed its $800,000 goal in a couple of days, and apart from that it also generated a ton of discussion both here on MassivelyOP and throughout the MMO blogosphere.

We’ve also entered the homestretch on our own Kickstarter. With six days to go, we’ve met our initial goal and secured a couple of months’ funding for our new web presence, so thank you for your support!

Click past the cut for rest of this week’s MMO crowdfunding roundup.
