Grimlands attempting second life through Kickstarter

While Gamigo may have shut down their plans to continue funding the production of the post-apocalyptic MMORPG Grimlands, Drago Entertainment has sought to keep the game afloat via an ambitious Kickstarter. Drago is of course the actual development company behind Grimlands (Gamigo was serving as the financier and publisher) and like any dev team that's poured years -in this case 5- into a game's development, they aren't content standing by and watching their project waste away.

I will admit, their Kickstarter is fairly ambitious, asking for $650,000 to finish. But when were MMOs ever cheap to make? According to the Kickstarter video the game is almost complete needing only to cook a few months more in the development oven. You can watch the official pitch above or check out the full campaign here.

It actually looks really fun. For all those saying "It's not doing anything new, take a look at Defiance, very little originality in that game, yet it's super fun. There are far more unoriginal KS projects you should be bashing on, this is not one of them.

Man why all the bashing. I was looking forward to this. It looks like a cool game & I am very board of all the fantasy based mmorpg's out there. It is time for something different. We need a good post apocalyptic game besides Hellgate global wich is AWESOME & Fallen earth wich is meeh. I say let them go for it & i will give it a shot when it comes out.

Sorry for double post. Something went wrong :)

Monthly fee? Ah...If only they made it F2P after all this crap. Hell, I hope Fallout online will appear one day and then I'll certainly make my final decision about post-apocalyptic mmos.
P.S: I've noticed that doors on vehicles are properly opened. Weird that such a big game Defiance didn't used that. I hate that "sucked in" effect when u enter vehicle.

its to far from being complete, this game have such awful animations, give it 2 years to be polished in to something, but in that time no one will be intresten in this game.

MrSnitches 9 years ago
It all depends on how "free" it is. If they need $650K to finish, and they somehow get it... I hope they don't do what every other developer does and make you pay to even play half the content in their "free" game.

If you say it's free, make it free.

650k in 24 days for a game that pretty much plays like other post-fallout games is too ambitious to me, i can't see any way this would work out in the end
