Pantheon - Inteview @ Worlds Factory
Worlds Factory interviews Brad McQuaid about his failed kickstarter Pantheon.
It’s a period of upheaval within the MMORPG genre. Many upcoming titles have at least a few sandbox features, in an effort to go back to the genre’s roots as they were originally proposed by Ultima Online; simultaneously, there is also a certain trend to reject the comfort provided by the latest games, with many users yearning for an “old-school” experience, such as the one provided by Everquest for example.
Pantheon follows this road, mainly thanks to Chief Creative Officer Brad McQuaid, who also created Everquest back in 1999. His studio, called Visionary Realms Inc. and based in San Diego, recently tried to fund Pantheon through Kickstarter, but only $460K of the $800K requested were raised. Still, the team is going forward with the development and has already setup a crowdfunding system through their official website, so you can pledge right now if the following conversation with Director of Communications Benjamin de la Durantaye sparks your interest.
