Project Gorgon preps second Kickstarter campaign, adds day-night cycle

    
21

Virtual world MMO Project Gorgon is preparing for a third Kickstarter campaign, its creator tweeted this past week. Eric Heimburg confirmed that the team is finalizing plans to seek funding for current and future development of the game.

It remains to be seen how ambitious a fundraising goal that Heimburg will set this time around. Project Gorgon attempted to raise $100,000 last fall but only managed to get to the $23,500 mark. Since then, alpha development has continued with the occasional update.

Speaking of which, Project Gorgon has put out a few patches lately to beef up the game’s content. These include level cap increases, more werewolf fun, improvements to the newbie experience, and the first pass of the day-night cycle with the intent to eventually develop a full dynamic weather system. Oh, and if you’ve been traumatized by the Omegaspider in the past, you’ll be happy to know that it’s been nerfed to the ground.

BTW, you can play the game in its early state right now without handing over a dime.  It has been that way for a while.
No need to speculate on if the direction is something you may or may not like, just head over and give it a try – http://projectgorgon.com/game/play-now

I’ve played it. I started my MMO journey with Everquest so it has a bit of nostalgia there in that respect. Also, I enjoy all the cool and quircky mechanics. I have fun with it :)

TheHiveLeader Sorenthaz  I had my eye on it in November when I first heard about it and might’ve watched you do an impression of it (and by that I mean I’m watching it right now because I forget if I did or not and I might as well see what it looks like even if that’s a nearly 10 month old video now >.>), but figured there’s plenty of time to check it out later.
Will probably try to give it a bit of attention over the weekend.

Ironwu This game has been in development as a personal hobby by basically 2 people for a very long time. It has a small yet passionate following and trying to do something very old school and different. 

I’d say it is it’s own beast and not to be thrown into the “Yet another Unity engine MMO” crowd as you describe it.

*Sigh*  Yet another Unity engine MMO that will most likely never be more than a demo environment.
I understand it is really fast, cheap, and easy to get something up and running in Unity, but MMOs are not what Unity is targeted towards.
It really is kind of sad and disappointing that a number of good ideas are probably going to fail spectacularly, just because the developers chose the cheap and easy path with Unity.
Just my thinking on it, and time will tell.
