Sandbox MMORPG Neo's Land Announced, Turns to Kickstarter for Funding

Neojac is seeking $ 100,000 CAD in funding to make its cross-platform sandbox MMO a reality.

Calgary-based developer Neojac has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the development of its crowd-designed sandbox MMORPG Neo’s Land.

Neojac says the sandbox MMO will let players participate in content creation and design, where they can create dungeons, build houses, modify terrains and even directly influence game design by talking to developers.

“Neo’s Land offers a High Fantasy MMORPG Open World (or Sandbox if you prefer). While there will be some lore and theme to Neo’s Land, the world is what the community wills it to be. There will be incentives to promote further world building, for example to build the first seaport. Yes… that means a Crafter’s Paradise in gamer’s tongue.

In Neo’s Land, the initial players will be the pioneers in a new and unknown world. Founding the first settlement and deciding on what to do from there, remain or decide to venture off elsewhere. This is not to say, the world is empty with the exception of players and animals. There are other races and realms out there, friendly, self-serving, militating, or just plain evil.

Time does march on, bringing with it new advances (assuming players are researching) of technology, magic, economics and politics. Advances are very likely to be slow. Traveling to far off lands may be needed to gain that bit of knowledge, and once obtained; it is up to the player to decide what to do with it. If you are looking for a game in which your actions have direct impact to the world, able to build a legacy for yourself though fame and fortune, and have a say in the matter, well then, this seems like a good obvious choice.”

Neo’s Land is subscription-based and will be available for PC, Mac, Linux and browsers when it launches. According to Neojac, the game will run on a Unity compatible proprietary MMORPG server architecture called Atavism, which the developer hopes to sell to other developers interested in making Unity-based MMOs. Neojac is looking to secure $ 100,000 CAD by October 9, 2013. The project currently sits at $ 8,007 CAD with 29 days to go.
