2006 sandbox MMO game now back on the radar; creator releases video detailing project history and goals.
Divergence Online, a sandbox sci-fi massively multiplayer online game that has been on hiatus since its original announcement in 2006, is now back in development and is seeking crowd-sourced funds to keep its momentum.
According to an IndieGogo crowd-funding page, the goal the project needs to hit is $50,000. Players who contribute $10 are guaranteed beta access, while players who pay more can get other tiered rewards ranging from an exclusive character class to a personal in-game island.
The project has raised $860 at this point, with 57 days left before it closes. For more information, check out the game’s IndieGogo page.
Back in 2006, developer Stainglass Llama announced that it was creating a sci-fi sandbox MMO game called Divergence that allowed players to toggle between an action-style interface or a traditional auto-attack system. The game also featured a nonlinear world, open PVP, lootable corpses, and unique races and breeds.
It's good to see developers still yearning for the good ol' days, i know that many things have improved over the years, and making video games its easier than ever, but the "soul" has been lost, i'm going to support this guy.
Maybe I'm a little nuts but doesn't $50,000 seem REALLY low for anything but the smallest of indie games? I mean that's one person's salary plus materials. And you can build an MMO on that?
@ExtremePhobia maybe the game is close to completion and they just need that last bit to get them over the finish line.
What is this supposed to mean? Don't like MMOs, do you? That's fine. I doubt you've ever actually played one and usually it's good to know one or two things about something you imply is stupid, but hey, you're entitled to your baseless opinions.
it's "good", and Planetside 2 isn't a generic fps, World of Warcraft - however bad you want it to be - can still draw more hours out of you than most games, and it's quite fun with friends. Guild Wars 2 didn't pull home loads of prizes last year for no reason, and if you're into superheroes and what not, DC Universe offers some fun combat that differs from normal MMO's. Warhammer had some badass PVP (or RVR), and while Lord of the Rings can feel abit stiff, it's nice to explore the world! Rift is solid as hell, and with a determined fanbase, same goes for SWTOR that's come a long way. If you're not into those games, there's Need for Speed etc. - there's loads to pick and choose from, just don't be so dismissive, it only shows how much you suck.
> cumfu panda
> generic fps
whoa , sure is guud
@Vu2010 @rhymebomb @doraemonllh1989 well under the definition of MMOs there's League if legends, world of Warcraft and Planetside2 to name a few rather different MMOs
