Very recently I came across a new Kickstarter project for an upcoming MMO. Aside from the chance to help fund the development of a new MMO, this particular project is very interesting for a number of other factors. It sounds like a rather ambitious project, a combination of a Cyberpunk & Fantasy setting that uses more skill-based advancement as one gains experience rather than more traditional MMO leveling.
As of this post, the project (which does not have a name yet) is still in the seed funding phase. The purpose of the Kickstarter funding is to help cover the initial costs of development, licensing of technology and getting the game engine and initial assets (art, etc.) up and going.
If you have ever wanted an opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a MMO as it develops, this is a perfect time to do so. There are a slew o potential rewards for folk who contribute, everything from t-shirts to getting your name in the credits.
The funding being sought via Kickstarter is rather modest IMO, only $17,000.00USD. That means if a minimum of 1,700 people pledge 10$, then the project would reach its funding goal!
Not too much to look at on the project page yet, but we are expecting more updates over the next few weeks. There may even be a tech demo and more videos to check out depending on how things go.
Here is the project link at Kickstarter: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1213561552/code-name-cyberpunk-sci-fi-fantasy-mmo
I will post more information as it becomes available.
