Make My MMO: Dual Universe fully funds (October 15, 2016)

This week in MMO crowdfunding news, congrats are due to Dual Universe, the sci-fi sandbox whose Kickstarter successfully funded on Tuesday with over 8100 backers pledging over $630,000 toward a $556,421 goal.

Meanwhile, Star Citizen’s CitizenCon came to a close, we interviewed Smed about Hero’s Song’s now-ended Indiegogo and future plans, Pantheon dished on raiding, Wasteland 3 appears to have funded early on Fig, Chronicles of Elyria explained how its “influence points” work, Fragmented wiped its test servers for a major progression and skill patch, and Shroud of the Avatar presented the town of Harvest, which just could not possibly be more fall appropriate.

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!
