Linux and Android MMO Launches Kickstarter To Support Gameplay Expansion 25

Incarnate-VO writes "Long running space-MMO Vendetta Online, which debuted with Linux support back in 2002, has launched a Kickstarter campaign to support a major gameplay expansion, including player-owned stations, capships, and territorial conquest. If the Kickstarter succeeds, an upcoming iPad version could also gain some added polish, joining the existing mobile support for Android. (The Kickstarter video is also available on YouTube in HD)."

    The planned changes would bring Vendetta Online closer to EVE in features:
    Player-owned capital ships and stations are two things EVE has, as well as benefits for conquering territory.
    EVE also has pretty amazing graphics, which is something Vendetta Online could use a bit more of (and it is planned for the Kickstarter). Graphics are usually not the thing I look for first, but in case on Vendetta Online the gap to AAA games is pretty large.

    What I really like is the twitch-based combat. A feature I always missed in EVE. Unfortunately, Vendetta Online does have its only server in Milwaukee, which makes the ping times somewhat long for players from Europe like me. When I tried Vendetta Online some years ago, I promptly got my ass handed to me in PvP. I think that was at least partly due to lag.

Things equal to nothing else are equal to each other.
