The Repopulation is a game we've briefly covered here at Gaming Blend but it hasn't received a whole lot of attention, mainly because it's a shoestring budget development title. Well, the team has taken to Kickstarter to get the project funded and out the door and they need your help.
With just under a month to go to get their game funded, Above and Beyond Technologies is working hard to get the game finished but want to ensure that the quality is up to par to what today's gaming audience expects from an open-world MMORPG.
One of the things that makes the game stand out from other titles is the ability to build your own cities and facilities, enabling players to drastically alter the in-game economy by actually building and running towns, looting towns and engaging in territorial wars. You can get a full rundown of the game and its concept in the overview video below.
I've sort of grown weary of MMOs lately because many of them are retreads of the same thing we've been playing since 2004. Only a handful of MMOs have actually carved out a niche as being creative and unique amidst all the World of Warcraft clones out there and I honestly believe that The Repopulation has a chance of becoming something more than just a standard sci-fi MMO, especially with the open-world concepts, world customization and highly affective virtual economy.
You can learn more about the game by visiting the Official Website or you can contribute to the Kickstarter on the Official Kickstarter Page.
