Pantheon - Crowd MMO Development

by Couchpotato, 2014-03-19 04:03:03

Visionary Realms released a new press release that talks about a new version of crowd-funding they are using after the failed Kickstarter for Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen.

Crowd MMO Development - A New Way to Make Games

Crowdsourcing turns to crowdfunding. And now crowdfunding becomes crowd-developing. Visionary Realms is taking a new look at how games are designed and developed from the ground up by deeply involving the community.

Funding for Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen, a classic take on epic MMO adventure, is taking place on VR's website at but the team is taking things a big step further by involving the community in the very design and development of the game.

Through the website, the community is able to:

  • Build a wiki for the game
  • Participate in design discussions with the developers through the forums and chat channel
  • Present and vote on ideas through a Think Tank
  • Create their own guilds and recruit members
  • Write their own blogs
  • Participate in weekly roundtable discussions with the developers

And a whole lot more! Visionary Realms is taking ideas directly from the feedback and suggestions the community has been offering and working those ideas and concepts directly into the game.
