With so many video games out there in the world it’s impossible to stay knowledgeable about everything. Case in point, until today I’d never even heard of Crown of the Gods. However, it seems that this strategy MMO has been building fans online this year. Thanks likely to this highly devoted fanbase, when Gaming Addict Studios launched their Kickstarter campaign it found success in the first 17 minutes. That simply has to be a record for Kickstarter history!
For the uninitiated, Crown of the Gods is an online multiplayer strategy game which is free-to-play, but not “pay-to-win.” Players begin with a small city and must increase their sphere of influence as they explore the land. Of course, other players are also vying for the crown. The race to win involves battles as well as forging alliances. Unlike many strategy games you’re able to enjoy this meta game without micromanaging everything as well. There are features in place to allow for automation of basic tasks. Unlike most MMOs, this also does have the end goal of receiving a crown. Of course, you can play more matches as you desire afterward.
What Crown of the Gods is lacking right now – and hoped to faciliate via the $5,000 goal – is to hire a few artists. To be fair, their game doesn’t look hideous right now but they recognize that often fancy artwork will make a title more appealing to others. So far the campaign is at double its goal but chances are it’ll climb higher before ending. If you’d like to nab access into the closed beta then you’ll have to toss some funds into the $25 reward tier.
