The good news continues to roll in for fans of emergent MMOs and the little-indie-sandbox-that-could, otherwise known as Embers of Caerus
. Forsaken Studios
has released a PR splash noting that it is making use of the Havok Vision Engine to power the forthcoming fantasy epic.
If you've been keeping abreast of this story, you probably know that EoC
is riding a wave of positive buzz following on from its successful Kickstarter campaign, which has already met its initial funding goal and then some with 19 days left to go.
Forsaken is now seeking to galvanize additional sandbox fans
, a demographic that creative director Rob Steele
says is ready for EoC
and games like it. "It just shows that the audience is out there, hungry for the kind of game that we're making -- one where the players take control of the world and make it their own," he says.
