narutoI’m going to try sincerely not to come off as a jerk, so please understand where I’m coming from here. We here at Cliqist love all the developers out there chasing after their wildest dreams with an incredibly small pool of resources, and while indie efforts often yield incredible results, some situations need a miracle more than anything. I think I’ve stumbled upon the wildest dream of all, completely with absolutely no means of being accomplished. Again, not trying to be mean.

A single man has taken on an incredible quest. Shane Bonkowski, a man I suspect of liking Naruto, has launched a Kickstarter campaign with one hell of a goal – create the best MMORPG of all time, based around the massive Naruto lore. Unfortunately, what Shane doesn’t lack in confidence and determination, he sorely lacks in resources. He is not a game developer, and plans on assuming seemingly no role in the creation of this game. The $150,000 he hopes to raise will go towards getting the licensing rights for the series, getting all the voice actors (both Japanese and American) onboard with the project, and hiring an entire development team to make the game for him and other fans of the series.

Obviously, the only way for this to happen is for Shane to earn about five times his original goal, so if you’d like to see a massive, immersive, AAA Naruto MMORPG, you need to direct every single eyeball you can find to this page and his Kickstarter campaign. I’m not saying this won’t happen, I’m just saying that if you want to make this happen, you have to start raising some serious support.

Yes, you. Share this with your friends. Immediately. Maybe, just maybe, we can all raise enough awareness to make this a reality.
