Make My MMO

This week in MMO crowdfunding news, we said goodbye (apparently) to Greed Monger. We also said hello to Pathfinder’s early access head start and, of course, we heard from Crowfall, Star Citizen, and the rest of the usual suspects.

While Greed Monger isn’t officially dead in terms of an announcement from its developers, things don’t look good now that it’s lacking a lead programmer. Read the rest of this week’s MMO crowdfunding news after the cut.

Actually GreedMonger has been signed over to the lead programmer and others.
Jason Appleton is no longer associated with it.
