This reminds me of a game called Wish.
I watch the video on this game one thing has me puzzled.
Everyone developing this game is donating there time and skills, I give you all props and kudos for that.
However The director has out requests for donations?
I understand all things cost $ for lisencing ect ect. This far exceeds whats required tho.
Is the developer of this tittle stating his time is more important than that of thoes donating there time?
And then on top there will be a subscription fee? to keep the economy and player vs player experience equal and in check?
I understand this for keeping the server up and running. However there are a few issues with this logic.
Many triple A tittle publishers are all switching to the Free to play or micro transactions.
Why pay to play a game when there will be so many out there to pick from, this will lead to a limited player base, not helpful for there goal, putting massive back into MMO.
a better alternative would be add in a micro shop for shiny and flash features. Ones that don't have any direct impact on economy and/or PvP game play.
Looking at the screen shots and video, perhaps just the ones I found. There either all very dark or conception art that don't show any actual footage.
My end thoughts to those who would think about donating. Hold onto your money. Something here just seems a little fishy.
