Last month, we told you about Deepworld, an upcoming 2-D action adventure MMO for iOS. Bytebin, the three man team developing Deepworld, is making great progress with the game, but now need your help to make the game a reality.
Bytebin has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help them cover the costs of audio design, legal fees, server costs, ramen, etc. There are many solo developers out there that create apps entirely on their own, but with the promised scale of Deepworld, I can see why Bytebin is reaching out to users. In an email to AppAdvice, Bytebin’s Jason Pearl had this to say about Deepworld:
Deepworld is a 2D cloud-based sandbox adventure game, featuring a persistent, fully-modifiable online universe and a fun hand-drawn Steampunk aesthetic. It is truly massively multiplayer, allowing for unlimited players to explore and build worlds together. Our team of three has been working as hard as we can over the last six months, and we’re on the verge of public beta. We will be releasing first for Mac, with iOS following soon after, and hopefully Windows later in the year.
Here is a video of Deepworld’s gameplay:
For more information on Deepworld, visit Kickstarter. If all goes well, Deepworld will be funded in a little more than three weeks if $20,000 in pledges is made. A minimum pledge of $5 will get you an early membership to the game. If this game delivers, it’ll be nice to enjoy a multi-platform game with an online community, despite what hardware they’re using to play.
