Earlier in the month we cast our eyes to Ilysia, an in-development VR MMORPG that promised to bring back “the glory days of MMORPGs again.” Much of its feature set looks like standard MMO fare with crafting, fighting, fishing, pet battling, and exploration on offer, just in the unique gameplay format of virtual reality. The game kicked off its crowdfunding drive last week and immediately landed its $60K ask.
Now, with just about a week left in its campaign, the devs at Team 21 Studio are adding one last set of stretch goals. Each of these goals hit the six-figure mark, but if the funding is raised, the devs will work on features such as full body tracking, airship and naval combat, a PvP honor and reward system, guild XP, and a more in-depth player-owned inn and shop system. The first of these goals will be unlocked at $100K, and with the drive currently over $96K at the time of this writing, it’s entirely feasible that at least a couple of these stretch goals could be met.
Right now the latest update post notes that the devs are hard at work on backend systems that control persistent account management, in-game chat channels, in-game player mail, and day/night cycles in preparation for alpha. The post also notes the release of an updated trailer in an effort to better showcase the world of Ilysia. You can watch the new and improved peek at gameplay below.
