Just about a month ago, we covered a brand-new Kickstarter from a brand-new MMORPG called Codename Reality. Actually, European developer Orode Productions called it an MMOPEG – a “massively multiplayer online persistent entity game.” The crowdfund campaign sought nearly $600,000 to build what Orode said is “the kind of project even the biggest game design companies wouldn’t dare undertake.” Unfortunately, it might also be the kind of project crowdfunders wouldn’t dare to undertake too, as the Kickstarter ended unsuccessfully last week, having earned only 1% of its goal.
“Although we did not succeed with our Kickstarter, that does not mean we are giving up,” Orode wrote on Friday. “We will do our very best to continue with the resources we have. Of course you can check out our Facebook page and website to see what we are doing and how we move forward from here. Thank you everybody who did back us, we are very grateful for your support and hope that you will continue to follow us!”
The game was billed as a hardcore sandbox focused on immersion and reality, with persistent dungeons, construction, ecology cycles, guilds, PvP, simulated NPCs, city trade, solo play, and permadeath.
