Camelot Unchained Kickstarter Is Now Live

City State Entertainment have just announced that the Kickstarter campaign for their highly anticipated MMORPG game, Camelot Unchained, is now live on the official website. Kickstarter has taken the gaming world by storm in recent years, giving players the opportunity to invest in and support upcoming MMO games that would otherwise not see the light of day.

Definitely looking forward to this! Mark Jacobs' (creator of DAoC) RvR baby. No PVE, just 3-realm RvR.

I was a big fan of DAOC, but there are certain red flags that come up with this prpject. Jacobs is a multi millionaire already, so he doesn't *need* a kickstarter. Also, sub-based games are dying, and really, I refuse to pay a sub for this. Jacobs stated in interviews that he will use this game to springboard into DAOC 2... meaning, it will be short lived no matter how thibgs turn oit. And, if it is to be an MMO, the funding sounds low as hell. Rift cost $33 million, for example.

Regardless of the points I made, I predict the game to be funded by noon on Saturday April 6th.

Mark Jacobs also said he would be putting $2 million of his own cash into the project, so it's unlikely that they'll cut the game any time soon.

Cost of development means very little. Rift cost $33 million dollars but for all intents and purposes, it's considered a bog standard MMO nowadays.

There are PLENTY of MMO games that launched well under a $1 million budget and are still massive today.

IF the game is highly anticipated a publisher would or should have picked it up...

It sucks that it looks like publishers are sending games to kickstarter first to get some public funding before they jump in...

You watch... public funding will happen and than a few months into development they will sign with a publisher...

publisher invest a lot less and still reaps the majority of the rewards...

You wait and see... once of them will pick it up...

You explained it there yourself. Thousands and thousands are really excited about this game but why bother paying for it now when they can just rake in the profit later? :D
