Brad McQuaid's New MMORPG Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen Kickstarter is Now Live
After leaking his brand new MMORPG Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen on twitter lately, Brad McQuaid now brings its kickstarter up. With an introduction of all the initial detail including game lore, combat, grouping etc., the Kickstarter gives a sneak peek of Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen. Here is a part of note from renowned EverQuest creator Brad McQuaid.
In the last several months I’ve been able to build up a core team of MMO veterans. They’re also a solid group of guys, a blast to brainstorm with, and we all share the same vision. And while we’ve been able to accomplish quite a bit with our small but talented team, the reality is that we need you to help us see this project through to completion.
It’s also time to let you all see what we’ve been up to.
We know of course that, in addition to some killer concept art and gameplay details, you’ll also want to see some of the actual game. So we spent a focused several months bringing this Kickstarter site to a point where we felt good about letting all of you see what we've been up to. We’ve included a few screenshots and some actual in-game video into the intro movie. Of course, as development continues, we will keep you updated with current screenshots and video so you (and the NSA) can monitor our progress.
We could have taken the team, the prototype, the design docs, and the concept art to a publisher or an investor, but we decided it made more sense to first bring it directly to you. Hopefully you’ll like what you see and find the game’s design and focus both compelling and refreshing.
