Greed Monger - Anybody tracking this game? Sandbox 100% player crafted MMO
 
I bought some land on this game - Looks kind of interesting. All items are player-crafted, and you can buy/sell non-instanced land for real money.

Here's the Kickstarter site. Seems like it could be World of Eve without the item drops. Could be cool to have TOG City ...

Looks interesting.... an MMO with a Second Life flavour.

Kickstarter ended four days ago. Bummer, this actually looks very interesting - I wouldn't have minded joining in.

I'm interested in seeing how the end up implementing so much diversity. The problem isn't allowing it graphically, its managing that level of cusomization in an MMO game. There is a reason why Minecraft isn't an MMO, and why most MMO's have reasonably limited customisation options :)

The scope does seem ambitious and highly dependent on drawing a decent population, but if they get it decent (not even right), it could be fun.

Although the KS campaign is done, I would not be surprised to see them do another or have some promo later. They are still pretty early.

Looks like a simplified Xsyon.

And Xsyon seems to be doing tremendously o.0

What's your point?

Just to clarify...

... was purely an observation. I wasn't making any judgement one way or the other.

Only that touting great customisation on its own does not a great game make. At this time they are talking grand features with extreme customisation, without proving how that level of customisation is going to be practical in an MMO, what scale the mmo is going to be, or anything about other features they intend to have.

Xsyon was a great idea, which lacked in the implementation (and also appears to have some issues with management... who starts a kickstarter then leaves it to fester?). These guys at least seem more proactive, but with their approach of buying parcels of land and many other things in their cash shop, I have to wonder if the "greedmonger" in the title reflects more on the game, or the company making it...

But then, thats just my opinion. They may have fantastic ideas, and I look forward to seeing how it works out for them :)
