This week in MMO crowdfunding news, Project Gorgon received a big quality-of-life patch this weekend. Of note, the game now offers synchronized dancing! “If three or more players dance to music, they will be prompted to perform a particular dance ‘move’,” writes ElderGame. “If at least three dancers perform the specified move, all spectators receive a choreography boost. […] A massive troupe of 12 (or more) dancers performing reasonably well together can give spectators a Dance Appreciation buff.” You can also expect adjustments to work orders, mob aggro, and GUI scaling, among several dozen new changes.

Want more dancing? Social MMORPG sandbox Ever, Jane launched its open beta this week. The Jane Austen-themed game was originally Kickstarted to the tune of over $100,000.

And Star Citizen broke the $120,000,000 barrier in its ongoing crowdfunding; the game’s 2.5 alpha went live this week.

Meanwhile, Grim Dawn received a big patch to its Crucible DLC content, Ascent patched in terraforming, and Shroud of the Avatar dinged up to $10,000,000 in crowdfunding.

Read on for more on what’s up with MMO crowdfunding this week and the roundup of all the crowdfunded MMOs we’ve got our eye on!
