Posted on October 8, 2013, Mike Sharkey Up, Up, and Away! City of Titans Kickstarted
The intensely loyal City of Heroes players who couldn’t save their beloved game have a new home. City of Titans, the spiritual successor to City of Heroes has been Kickstarted.
It didn’t take long for Missing Worlds Media to hit their $320,000 goal for an all-new superhero MMO, and I’m thrilled for them. They fought the good fight in an effort to save City of Heroes last year, and then dusted themselves off after NCSoft decided to pull the plug anyway. Oh, and if $320,000 sounds like a fraction of the overall cost for an MMO, that’s because it is. Just not when you subtract the cost of paying developers. City of Titans will be created by a team of more than 100 volunteers.
Now it’s on to the stretch goals. There are still 26 days left on the City of Titans Kickstarter, and as of this morning, $450,000 is the final stretch goal, which would add a Mac OS version. I hope they get there, and beyond. This is one of the truly feel good gaming stories of 2013.
