Good news for Project Gorgon: The indie MMO has crossed the halfway point in its current Indiegogo campaign, raising over $10,000 toward its $20,000 goal. As a treat for the game’s supporters, the team has released a picture and a description of the upcoming Fairy (Fae) race. Is it just us, or do these Fae look quite similar to Guild Wars 2’s Sylvari?
“The Fae are an immortal race that originate from the realm of Fae,” the team wrote. “They have the ability to glide through the air with the use of their wings and levitation magic. Those Fae who truly embrace their heritage can master full flight. Their alien biology allows them to gain additional benefits from food and potions, but they are fragile and more vulnerable to injury when compared to some of the tougher races.”
In last week’s interview with Massively OP, project leader Eric Heimburg described the Fairies as “murderous little butterfly people” who use knives and ice magic to deadly effect. The Fae is slated to be the next playable race added to the game, followed by Orcs and Dwarves.
