Camelot Unchained Kickstarter closes with $2.2m, private investors provide additional $3m buff


Camelot Unchained has ended its Kickstarter Campaign today, collecting an impressive $2,232,933 in donations from 14,873 backers.

Having aimed to raise $2million for the project, developer City State Entertainment and designer Mark Jacobs can now confidently start full production on the apocalyptic MMO. Topping up the $2.2million donated by fans, City State today announced that an additional $3 million had been added to the project courtesy of private investors. $2 million of that comes from Mark Jacobs himself, who promised to donate his personal money to the project should it be successfully funded.

“The last 30 days have been an incredible journey,” Jacobs said via a statement. “We believed there’s an audience for a highly focused game like ours, which has now been proven. What we didn’t expect was how our community would come together so quickly and avidly.

“Not only is our pledge off the chart, our backers have been just as intensely supportive in other ways, from providing immense amounts of helpful feedback to translating information into four languages (German, French, Japanese and Korean), and more. Our entire team is grateful beyond words for the way they have inspired us with their fervent interest and amazing enthusiasm.”

Camelot Unchained will be a PvP-focussed MMO, with a ‘TriRealm’ system for massive world vs world vs world battles. The bespoke engine is already built, supporting an insane 1,000 simultaneous characters at over 200 frames per second. If this grabs your interest but you didnt back the Kickstarter, you can still donate to the project through PayPal.
