A new Kickstarter campaign began today for MMORPG Dual Universe, developer Novaquark announced.
Dual Universe is a sci-fi sandbox game for PC that contains one unique world that is shared by all players with no separations. Novaquark refers to its setting as “one world, no boundaries, no zones, no instances.” Players are able to freely create the world as they dig, deploy, craft, create, and shape almost everything
“Because with innovation comes risk, most publishers don’t take the chance to support creative projects like Dual Universe. The game is a revolutionary take on the MMO genre, enough to make it difficult to finance by conventional means. For the past three years we have been funded privately, keeping our independence to develop ground-breaking technology”, says Jean-Christophe Baillie, founder and president of Novaquark. “To complete our vision, we need the community’s support for Dual Universe, in order to remain independent and move forward in the direction of the game we all want to make. The more backing we will have, the stronger we will be, and the more independent we can remain.”
The developer currently has a target of $500,000, and backer rewards for the project include a soundtrack, art book, discount codes, and exclusive access to Dual Universe’s alpha and beta coming in 2017. The campaign ends on October 11.
