To be perfectly honest, any project asking for more than $20k these days has me doubtful of a success, but Umbra could very well be different. It's ambitious, it's pretty, and it's polished. More specifically, Umbra is seeking to provide many robust features, including an advanced crafting system, free character development (without class limitation), a large array of weapons and items, solo and multiplayer support, and the powerful Kythera AI system.
