'Camelot Unchained' getting a Kickstarter

Ex-Mythic head man Mark Jacobs has announced that City State Entertainment will be starting a Kickstarter for their upcoming title Camelot Unchained.

The game will be a MMORPG and that the title will focus on "true player-owned economy".

Here's the theme:

"The central conflict encompasses a trio of diverse, competing realms – Arthurian, Tuatha Dé Danann and Viking – each seeking to assert its dominance over an open and persistent world reflecting the universally familiar but greatly re-imagined Camelot and European mythos. All aspects of this RvR-focused MMORPG are tied into and support the three realms’ ongoing battle for superiority and control. The player housing and crafting systems will also be very significant components and both key closely into the RvR theme."

“We believe there’s a small yet viable audience of fans who are very keen to play this type of MMORPG,” said Jacobs. “However, tightly focused niche games don’t necessarily hold great appeal for traditional publishers who are looking toward the mass market. We see Kickstarter as the best way to reach out directly to the people who will actually play our game for help in funding its creation.

“Furthermore, we feel Kickstarter is great market research. When we meet our funding goal, the other investors and I will be even more confident about committing the additional money needed to complete development and to launch and operate the game. A successful campaign will provide solid evidence that a truly enthusiastic and committed target audience will be eagerly awaiting its release.”
