Ambitious Project Gorgon is back on Kickstarter

Third time’s the charm for Project Gorgon’s Kickstarter, right? We hope so, as the ambitious indie fantasy sandpark is asking for a modest $20,000 to further its development. Unlike most Kickstarter MMOs, Gorgon has already been greenlit on Steam. The game’s alpha is also freely available to the public, so there’s nothing stopping you from seeing whether or not Asheron’s Call veteran Eric Heimburg’s feature-rich sandpark mashup is worthy of your time and money.

Gorgon has “a heavy concentration on discovery and exploration,” according to the Kickstarter intro vid. The game’s other big thing is immersion, and in addition to a robust skill-based progression system, the title features player-managed shops and stalls, player-created quest content, story-focused live events, and shopkeeper NPCs whose inventory depends on what other players sell them.

This game is goddamn ugly, but holy shit there’s a lot to do here, a lot to figure out, a lot to explore, a lot to learn even in pre-alpha! Several times it felt like a roguelike or a MUD where the developers had the guts to introduce whatever little stupid ideas they came up with. I mean seriously, whose ideas were things like downtime activities with NPCs, autopsy on monsters, animal skills, power words, voluntarily hardcore death penalty? Some might not seem to add much depth to the game, but I simply love them because they make the game more immersive.

CistaCista Reading the forums it seems they only plan to wipe inventory for the sake of economy, and possibly reset a few skills if there are major changes.

TheHiveLeader Sorenthaz HolyAvengerOne Ahh thanks for clarifying. Thought that was likely after seeing that video I posted above. Ain’t you happy two of your totally random fans recognized your deep sexy/crazy voice on the interwebs :D

wjowski there isn’t any, except in one dungeon.

I’ve been playing all weekend, and whilst it’s not for everyone it’s moth definitely worth a look as there’s nothing else quite like it.
