Missing Worlds Media launched a Kickstarter campaign for City of Titans today, a successor to the defunct massively multiplayer online role-playing game City of Heroes.
City of Heroes developer Paragon Studios shuttered last year, ending the superhero-infused MMORPG. A group of programmer-players assembled in the wake of the shutdown to create City of Titans.
"Our goal is to deliver a unique massively multiplayer online roleplaying game, created from the community of a lost universe, to build a new community for a new world," the Kickstarter description reads. "A brave new world containing a wealth of player choices, from costumes to powers, it continues the traditions found in its spiritual predecessor, daring to reach for new innovations no other game will touch, while standing firmly on the feel and spirit of the old. Players will be able to choose their own adventure, tell their own tales, and have their own agency in a superhuman world."
As of this writing, the crowdfunding campaign has earned $83,326 of its $320,000 goal from 491 backers.
