Make My MMO: Crowfall’s $3M, Gorgon’s Indiegogo, Nebula’s launch (November 5, 2016)

    
0

This week in MMO crowdfunding news was a surprisingly big one for the genre! First, Crowfall broke $3,000,000 in crowdfunding to date, bringing the game’s total funding to $10,000,000. Then Project Gorgon released a new trailer and a new Indiegogo pitch. Then Hero’s Song pulled off its alpha 3 launch for core backers, and the Endless Forest returned to Indiegogo for another go.

And while Wasteland 3 successfully crowdfunded through Fig, unfortunately, retro mech shooter MMO Antraxx canceled its Kickstarter after it achieved just under a sixth of its proposed funding. Back in October, developer Leendert Oomen told players that the project’s fate following a failed campaign “is still undecided.” And Nebula Online, which canceled its Kickstarter back in March, launched on Steam.

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!
