    Phoronix: Unigine-Powered Sci-Fi MMORPG Turns To Crowdfunding

    Earlier this year we heard of a science fiction MMORPG game making use of Unigine 2 after switching from Unreal Engine 4. It's been a few months since hearing about this game, which is targeting Linux support, but now there's a slew of new information as they just launched a Kickstarter campaign...

        I asked this exact question to devs.

          They also basically say the playing this will be 18 euro per month. For that money I would need to put in more time than I could give it.

              Yeah monthly subscriptions is something I just don't do any more, no matter how good it is. I don't mind buying stuff in f2p on occasion but that is all.

                Yeah, the subscription model is just about dead, only WoW and FFXIV are really successful with that now. Both of those games have a fanbase they have built over more than a decade. Even other big title games haven't been able to manage thriving with a subscription model. Even if this game is able to handle the massive initial surge of players with zero bugs, they aren't going to make it.

                Hopefully they are able to licence the engine to someone that can use it for an established IP. They should call up the Disney folks about slapping a Star Wars skin on it or something.

                  Shroud of the avatar is a MMO from Kickstarter which has received more than 10 million USD in funding and runs on Linux. It uses Unity 5.x and as far as I can tell they have been working with the Unity tech to improve Unity with Linux.
