MMORPG Camelot Unchained succeeds $2 million Kickstarter goal


Glorious day to City State Entertainment! The Kickstarter Champaign for Camelot Unchained ended today. Looking for $2 million, they came out with more than $200,000 more than what they asked for in their initial goal. Camelot Unchained is a three faction RvR MMORPG. Now that the Kickstarter has been successfully funded, the game will be receiving another $3 million from private investors. Soooo in a nutshell, Camelot Unchained is definitely a thing.

The RvR in this game boasts large-scale combat. We’re talking hundreds of characters on the screen at once, battling in a 'menage a MURDER.' A recent technology demo consistently achieved 200 to 400 frames per second while showing 1,000 characters. Each of these characters were individually rendered at approximately 12,000 polygons without using level of detail, plus smoke and other particle effects for funzies

“The last 30 days have been an incredible journey,” said Mark Jacobs. “We believed there's an audience for a highly focused game like ours, which has now been proven. What we didn't expect was how our community would come together so quickly and avidly. Not only is our average pledge off the chart, our backers have been just as intensely supportive in other ways, from providing immense amounts of helpful feedback to translating information into four languages (German, French, Japanese and Korean), and more. Our entire team is grateful beyond words for the way they have inspired us with their fervent interest and amazing enthusiasm.”
