Everquest Designer Kickstarts New Fantasy MMO
Visionary Realms, a studio headed up by former EverQuest architect and executive producer of Vanguard Brad McQuaid, has launched a Kickstarter for a new MMO - Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen.

The developer describes the game as, "A fantasy themed Massively Multiplayer Role Playing game (MMO) with a heavy focus on character development, an immersive world, and teamwork."

The studio is looking for $800,000. At the time of publishing it's at $42,334, having just started yesterday.

The blurb goes on to say that, "It takes place on a world populated by deities and heroes, called Terminus. Mortal and planar shards which have collided create the dramatic and epic environment of Terminus. With some of those shards came deities and demigods that, over time, raised empires which forged the turbulent political landscape. Centuries later, new planar collisions have occurred that will pull the players into the world and its politics. The player is a legendary hero, stripped of his or her powerful relics and left to explore the dramatically diverse and epic regions of Terminus with hopes of reclaiming their relics and those of lost heroes."

The studio has stressed that the game will be tough, with McQuaid having told PC Gamer that the likes of Dark Souls and Monster Hunter prove that games in that mould can work. He said, however, that "For us, challenging does not mean tedious. We're not going to put in repetitive content or grinding just to make the game more 'difficult' or to slow down the gamers."

You can find out more over on Kickstarter, or have a look at the trailer below.
