Diehl said that Snowstorm will be an MMO featuring eight 3-D zones, a storyline that changes based on player actions, a real-time battle system, customizable pets, and a rated PvP system. Interestingly enough, there's a turn-based combat option for players who want to go back-and-forth over a period of days or weeks. The studio will be leveraging cloud computing to make this game look and play a lot more like a standard computer or console title and less like a mobile game.
SnowFury's team of 40 developers is poised to make this game happen for iOS and Android devices, although raising a half-million dollars in funding would be somewhat helpful. The studio has launched a Kickstarter campaign to pull in $500,000 by the end of August. Backers will be invited behind-the-scenes to watch the development in progress without an NDA. If all goes well, Project Snowstorm will land in our laps in late 2014.
