Well first of all let me say by no means am I going to be calling Camelot Unchained the end all and be all of mmos. I am pretty positive not everyone is going to like this game and that might be a good thing. Just go back and look at all the pve oriented “made for the masses” mmos out there and tell me which ones have really been successful since vanilla WoW. I know you’re brain is starting to hurt right now because you really can’t think of one. I am sure some would make an argument for 1 or 2 out there but for the most part they all have pretty much been a disaster or a big disappointment in one way or another.
Part of the problem with mmos today is that mmos are going mainstream. Developers are dumbing down their game just so they can sell more retail or downloadable sales, which actually hurts the quality of the game. The other problem is that today publishers have just way too much say on how development for mmos should be run. They think they need to rush games out just to meet those quarterly earnings causing unpolished mmo experiences.
Well this is where City State Entertainment defies all the red tape that comes with making mmos. They have no publisher and it is highly unlikely we will see one. They are making their own game. They answer to no one but themselves which is a huge plus. They aren’t looking to please the masses with this game. It will be a niche game for those who love RVR. Finally a game that doesn’t get dumbed down just for the sake of sales. That certainly makes me feel a lot better about the mmo genre as a whole.
So when you go and decide you want to back Camelot Unchained through Kickstarter you are not only going to help shape the RVR game you want, you are actually changing the way how mmos work. To think we don’t have to listen to all those big name publishers anymore and just make the game we want to play. That actually gets my game face on. It gets me excited about mmos again. To think I can actually make a difference in the mmo world.
Personally I am sick of pre-ordering big name overhyped mmos just to be disappointed. I can’t imagine how much money we all have spent on failed mmos over the years and wish we could have our money back. It has been this way for many years since vanilla WoW. Pretty much tired of tossing my money away just so they can dumb down games for more profit. City State Entertainment gets me exited about mmos again. I wish more inde developers would go this route. The mmo world would be a much better place.
