Favorite website of mine, Kickstarter, has a new investment opportunity for all of you sandbox fans: Embers of Caerus. Featuring all the sandbox buzz phrases like class-less, player-driven economy, full loot, and full PvP, Embers looks to be another attempt at following Ultima Online’s lead.
Personally, I am always excited for a new sandbox MMO. I think they are the truest style of MMO, despite being the least popular and hardest to design. However, because of just how hard they are to make, I think I will pass on kickstarting this one.
But that doesn’t mean you should! After all, you probably have more disposable income than I do or maybe you haven’t kickstarted anything yet. Surely supporting an endangered species like the sandbox MMO has some sort of karmic, cosmic, or moral benefit. Did I mention it is low-fantasy? Perhaps you are one of the many burnt out on high-fantasy games! I know I think they are getting old.
At the very least, we should all spread the word. I would love to see this game in 2016, after everyone we know spreads the word and gets it kickstarted.
