Make My MMO: Squadron 42, Pantheon 247


Welcome to another blast of MMO crowdfunding news from the last few weeks! Indeed, these last few weeks have been packed with wild stories about crowdfunding games, topped by Star Citizen’s CitizenCon, where Cloud Imperium announced that Squadron 42 is “feature complete” and moving into a “polishing phase.” There’s no release date, however.

Then there was Pantheon, which suffered a leak of its 247 extraction shooter mode, which the studio hopes to monetize to fund Pantheon’s development, which itself is on hiatus until next year.

And finally, there’s Ship of Heroes, which during its Steam demo event (accidentally?) leaked a public pricing pitch that mystified MMO gamers; the studio told us the prices weren’t under discussion and that its website had actually suffered a hack, which of course would be disturbing if true and if player PID were involved, but Heroic Games declined to respond to any of our follow-up questions about any of it. So that’s how that’s going.

Read on for more on what’s been up with MMO crowdfunding over the last few weeks, plus our roundup of all the crowdfunded MMOs we’re following!

Yes, some crowdfunded MMOs most definitely do succeed. But others crash and burn, and you need to hear about the whole spectrum of games that sought your money early in exchange for the promise of input and transparency. And that’s exactly what Make My MMO does several times a month. Help us keep ’em accountable, would ya?
