Updates contain new material!

Hey everyone, I have been working hard on creating all the models and animation (conceptual art) for a game im creating called Star Borne. It is intended to be a open world game that is set in a universe where players create the story. The story and idea for the game is in its infancy, and needs support from people like you, who care about games, art, story, or any other reason. Because the game im trying to make is very large and dynamic, the goal is 100k. All of it would obviously be going into the production of the game which i estimate if funded would take about 2 years. I would really appreciate anything, i am trying to make my artistic dreams come true. Not only do i love to create stories but creating a game would help me in my music endeavors as well. That being said if your a fan of sci-fi, open world games, or just games in general, please check out my kick-starter page. Anything can be donated, but there are also rewards. $15 will give you access to the game when its released as well as the beta. There are many rewards to choose from. I wholeheartedly request that you take a moment to look at the video I put together that briefly shows what the game could look like. Thank you and please help out! 

Sincerely, Daniel Vasquez

Star Borne Online, what is it? Star Borne is intended to be a retro, sci fi,open world, "Non-subscription" or "Free", MMORPG. Star Borne takes place in a set universe where players are given freedom within a functioning player driven society where one can choose whatever he wishes to become. A pirate? A loyalist? A trader? Its up to the player to decide. The universe of Star Borne has several races from which players will be able to choose from, form alliances, and create in-game "guilds". The original concept incorporated only one planet, however I want to make this bigger and better. 

The main objective

This game will be geared more towards preparing colonies for player driven industries. This includes mining, military, and exploration fields. Without colonies players will not be able to generate enough revenue to sustain a large "guild".

Colonies will be maintained and worked on by players. 

Whats the catch? You are not always safe. At any point a player can choose to raid your planet, stations, or depots, with his or her friends and take what you have earned and built.

Yes players can build buildings on worlds. What kind of buildings?

Mining drills, Headquarters, Refineries, Communication Towers, Barracks, Space Ports, so and so forth. 

What to expect?

-Non-subscription

-Large surface battles as well as space battles.

-Territorial conquering of star systems by formidable player made guilds.

-Building of structures on planets in order to mine, keep security, or engage in underground activities, etc.

-First person and third person camera views.

-Complex economic system

-Diplomacy

-Space exploration

-Life simulation

-Npc's

-Story driven by player

-Player customization on all aspects including ships, homes, weapons, and bases. 

-More than two playable races.

-War

-Structured armies/traders/pirates

Star Borne is imagined as a vastly dynamic universe that will be shaped by the actions of players real time, and yes, I do want players to play together!

The essential part of Star Borne requires that players band together in the Star Borne universe to create powerful factions within Empires, or races, in order to dominate star systems and conquer worlds from current holders of those worlds. 

Star Borne as a game DOES NOT EXIST yet, but the essential pre-production aspects have been created such as 3d models, concept art, and music. 

The money will go towards the following:

Programmers = 50%

Artists = 25%

Legal = 10%

Hardware,equipment, and programs= 15%

Quick notice about the rewards. All rewards bring the Digital copy and Beta. I could not change the $100 reward but it also brings Beta + Digital copy even though it is not listed. 

If your interested in joining the Star Borne team please send me a message via Kickstarter regarding the matter. Thank you!

I am looking for the following:

-Programmers

-3D Artists & 2D Artists

-Game Artists

Star Borne Online will use CryEngine for production after it is funded and is intended to be a PC game.

Risks and challenges

The first set back I see myself encountering is the funding. MMORPG's are very costly and require lots of money to produce, however since my game is dependent on player driven story rather than in-game story, one might be able to produce with less. My skill sets allow me to produce animations and 3D models, as well as music since my main profession is composition of music. The game will have no trouble delivering quality soundtracks and models. However, in order for Star Borne to be made, I must find several game programmers in order to succeed. This is a challenge because I am a new figure in both fields of modeling, music, and story telling. However being a college student and living in a college town with a school of gaming, It wont be so hard to find the people required to help in the production of Star Borne.

Note - Once Star Borne Online is funded I will have a website created where people may donate further in order to make sure the project stays alive and well.
