Massively.com's team is not just writing about MMOs -- we're making the best darn one we can think of. It has ALL the levels!

We all know that "MMORPG" stands for massively multiplayer online role-playing game, but have you ever heard of an MMMORPG? Well you are going to a lot from now on, because a Massively massively multiplayer online role-playing game is in the works!



Here at Massively we've been reporting on MMOs for years, but we feel it's time to dip our toes into the other side of the lake. It's time to put our great ideas and vast experience to use and actually make a kick-ass game. We're going to make the MMO we all want to play -- and we need your help. Just because we are paid off by every major and several minor game studio out there doesn't mean we have infinite resources (our yacht is a money sink, after all). But collectively YOU do!



So we're taking a cue from the cool kids by appealing to crowdfunding to make this game happen. It's going to have swords so big that you'll need a prehensile tail just to hold one. It's going to have particle effects so mind-blowing that the console crowd will be weeping on their knees in envy. It'll have sexy voice-overs done by the Massively team. It'll have sixteen pillars of gameplay. And it's going to have levels. ALL THE LEVELS.



And you can get in on the ground floor by supporting our Kickstarter project! Just check out those special rewards and become a backer today.

Other features:

  • VGA graphics for improved fidelity
  • A cloth map that can mop the flopsweat from your forehead after you do one of our ultra-hard dungeons
  • Public questing if you take a laptop with this out in public and show folks
  • Bears, bears, bears

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

No risks to us. We got your money, after all. We'll probably just make a big pile of it and occasionally dive into it. Money angels, moneyball fights, money parades, you know. It'll keep us amused for at least a week or two.
