We're only a few weeks into the New Year and there's already an exciting gaming project in Kickstarter
. It's Vendetta Online, an existing twich-based, sci-fi themed MMORPG
that's available on a number of platforms. In fact, two years ago it was the first PC 3D MMO to make the leap to mobile and is now available for Android
, in addition to Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows (including Windows 8/RT). Where's iOS
support, you ask?
That's what the Kickstarter campaign is for. The developers want to expand Vendetta Online over to the iPad
(2nd Gen and newer). With your funds, Vendetta Online will be polished for the iPad with Retina Display support and voice over acting to early missions.
"By funding this project in advance, we can focus our efforts purely on development, and less on the chaotic business-and-marketing juggling act needed to maintain an indie studio and game like ours," Guild Software states on their Kickstarter page. "This will make development much more rapid, and unlike other forms of funding, we'll be building it for the people who want the product."
Guild Software's goal is to raise a somewhat modest $100,000 in the next 35 days, and they're more than 10 percent of the way there already. Some of the other things that money will go towards include major improvements to player-owned capital ships, a reworking of the game galaxy for larger and denser asteroid fields, more complex space stations, more persistent NPC types, and several other upgrades.
