Make My MMO

One of these weeks we’ll stop writing about Project Gorgon in this space, but not today! And why should we, since the indie darling is basically the feel-good MMO crowdfunding story of the year to this point?As of press time, Gorgon has very nearly tripled its $20,000 Kickstarter goal with more than a day left on its funding drive.

Also this week, Double Fine veteran Justin Bailey unveiled Fig, a Kickstarter alternative that will eventually allow game backers to invest as well as pledge. The rest of our recent MMO crowdfunding news is rounded up for you past the break.

Seriously have no idea why Fig keeps getting mentioned, who would seriously invest in a company that has ties to DoubleFine ?

Also, Fig = Fucking Ignorant Gamers ?

I get the impression that’s what they are hoping.


DahkohtLewin I am very much new school.  I like convenience. Hilton >>>> tent.

But I backed CU and PG because they seemed like competent folks working hard and honestly on a game they were passionate about.  I am very negative on KS, but I see that as the KS ideal.


Don’t feel bashful about PG, keep on mentioning it!  I wish The Repop could catch fire and hope CU has or will.


re “The rest of our recent MMO crowdfunding news is rounded up for you past the break.”

I thought there was a comment or two about SC this week?


Backed CU with a decent size alpha package , I think the least I could do it go in for a bit on the Gorgon kickstarter since old school is the style I want for both PVP and PVE as far as the no hand holding and more niche style. Checking out the Kickstarter to see what level seems about right.


I’m totally in love with Project Gorgon!
To think that UO 2 could’ve been like this … all these wasted years …
