Though the developers were seeking a mere $320,000, City of Titans fans donated more than twice that amount. Once the dust had settled, City of Titans stood atop a pile of cash totaling $678,189. Why should you care? Novelty. Online games are infested with elves, orcs and poorly-designed Lord of the Rings analogues, but few give players the freedom of superpowers. City of Titans seeks to change that.
"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," reads the game's Kickstarter description. "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."
While intriguing, don't hold your breath just yet. There's no official word on when City of Titans might make its retail debut.
