Make My MMO: September 12, 2015

This week in MMO crowdfunding news, we caught up with Camelot Unchained, Crowfall, and Elite: Dangerous, each of which released a dev blog or some sort of similar update designed to keep backers and watchers apprised of current progress.

Camelot Unchained’s DragonCon panel was made available on YouTube, while Crowfall continued its weekly assault on our newsroom. Elite, meanwhile, revealed its sales numbers and added a new dev blog to the mix. The rest of this week’s crowdfunding news is wrapped up after the cut.
