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)."

    While it is very simplistic comparing to what "Elite: Dangerous" plans to look like, it works (in current state of course) and I paid sub for it for a year (then I ran out of time to play it). On Linux it works on good Intel cards, not mentioning Nvidia and AMD/ATI - and it looks really nice, all things considered. They sure can deliver as coders - look of the amount of porting they have done in the past. And their back story for the game is very well written.

    So this is worth to check out and decide is it's worth to support them.

    What happened to doing work first and then getting paid for it?

    This more like "shopping for investors" than it is "selling vaporware and then backfilling". They're up front about what they are doing, what they are going to accomplish and how much it will cost. And no one gets charged unless they get enough "investors".

    This approach is certainly better than some products that were sold online and then had endless delays & excuses, never to actually see the light of day.

    I printed out the entire background and stitched it up, reading through it in a couple of evenings before sleep.
    It's worth reading even for non-players (in fact, I'm still on my trial account).
