Deepworld Launches Kickstarter Project To Help To Fund A Mac Beta
Deepworld is a 2D Sandbox-style building platform that is similar to Minecraft. I met them at GDC in March and informed them it would be much bigger than they expected. Although MINECRAFT SERVERS LIST have extensive experience in the development of software and servers, running a large game like Deepworld requires significant investment. They seem to have come to an agreement. Kickstarter was created to raise funds early for development and servers.
The group is offering a variety of prizes to those who support it, including your own personal servers and worlds, art books and other swag, as well as the possibility of receiving your own items, your name or even images in the game itself. The goal is US$20,000, in total, and as of this writing, the guys have raised around $4,000. MINECRAFT SERVERS LIST intend to make the project a full-time job and this money will allow them to do this.
I'm sure I'd like them to be successful. Deepworld looks great and, as I stated when I first saw it, the Mac (and iOS) would benefit from a game that's like this.
