is an ambitious sandbox MMO that first opened to public consumption in 2011 under the name Xsyon: Prelude
. While the game has been out since that time with no secret about its "not really launched yet" status, the team at Notorious Games
has just announced today that official launch is finally right around the corner. But they need your help.
Thanks to the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter
aims to raise a total of $250,000 to help the game launch under the new name Xyson: Apocalypse
. As lead designer Jordi Grau Davis says in the Kickstarter pitch, this will be what Xsyon
was intended to be with two servers, nine times the world of Prelude
, the addition of religion and magic, a larger dev team, and more.
If you'd like to try the current version of the game out before making a decision to support this project, Xsyon: Prelude has a free trial
, and you can learn much more about Notorious Games' plans with the future of the title on their Kickstarter project page.
