Camelot Unchained Asks For Two Million Dollars in Crowdfunding
Even MMOs are jumping into the crowdfunding market these days. City State Entertainment is hoping to cash in on the Kickstarter craze with their new project Camelot Unchained, and they have high hopes. They are asking for an astounding $2 million in donations, which is one of the highest totals any game project has asked out of Kickstarter.
Fortunately, they do have the backing of a decently hardcore MMO fanbase to get them started. Camelot Unchained is a spiritual successor to Dark Age of Camelot. The game is going to focus on Realm vs. Realm combat. The game world will be split up into three different lands each housing different character races, classes, and locations. The different lands will even speak in completely different languages. There will be no random encounters or quests in Camelot Unchained. Every single piece of the game will revolve around the massive war going on between the three lands.
If the project reaches its goal, Mark Jacobs, head of City State Entertainment, will donate $2 million of his personal money to the cause. He also has an extra million stashed away for the project, meaning the game will at minimum have a $5 million budget. At time of writing, the project has raised $631,000 and still has 28 days left to go.
