Fantasy Tales Online Kickstarter Tries to Revive the 2D MMO
Cold Tea Studios, an indie developer, has been working on Fantasy Tales Online for longer than they care to admit. Their vision is not only one of a 2D MMORPG where players enjoy questing and working their way through randomly generated dungeons, but is also a vision of player created cities in a sandbox type of environment.
In need of art assets, Fantasy Tales Online has taken to Kickstarter to raise $25,000 with most of those funds going directly towards commissioning pixel art assets with some of the funds going towards scaling the MMO experience.
Currently, Fantasy Tales Online is slated to be a free to play title and it is currently up for Greenlighting on Steam. It's an interesting project in my opinion. I like the nostalgia feel of the game but wonder if it can truly create an experience I want to log into over and over again.
If you're curious, head on over to the Fantasy Tales Online website as you can play the game now to get a peek at what Cold Tea Studios is trying to accomplish. The download only takes a few minutes.
