What do you get when you promise an MMORPG with aging, permanent death, offspring, and a destructible world? Apparently, you get $270,000 of funding pretty quickly. The Chronicles of Elyria Kickstarter hasn’t been running a full day as of this writing, but the developers happily announced that the game hit the 25% funding mark in less than 10 hours, with further funding pushing it close to a third of its total $900,000 goal.
The announcement of the funding milestone also comes with a message of appreciation to the game’s community, with the developers thanking players for believing in the game’s experienced but largely untested team and what they can do. If you’re still interested in the game but wanted to hold off on tossing in money until you knew that the campaign had legs, now’s the time to jump over.
