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.

It's not often I mention Kickstarter campaigns, but in longing to see any Unigine 2 demo/game/benchmark on Linux, Dual Universe has captured my attention since hearing about it earlier this year and being able to confirm with Unigine Corp the developers behind this game are targeting Linux support. As with all Unigine Engine works, the game's visuals look very good.

Dual Universe has launched a Kickstarter campaign where they are hoping to raise $557,818 USD to finish development of the game. There are 34 days left to the campaign and they have so far raised $24.8k from 141 backers.

Those wishing to learn a whole lot more about this game as well as see more visuals from the game, see their Kickstarter page. This is the only Unigine 2 game I'm aware of at the moment, at least for Linux support. To much dismay, still haven't heard anything new from Unigine Corp about any new tech demo / benchmark of their latest engine.
