3D Realms seeking crowd funding for next FPS game

Posted on Thursday, September 27 2012 @ 22:06:40 CEST by

ARS Technica reports 3D Realms has turned to crowd funding to revive Earth No More, a previously shut down first-person shooter project. The game will be listed on Gambitious, a new crowd funding site for game developers.
While 3D Realms revived the project back in June, the under-the-radar effort wasn't widely noticed until today with the official launch of Gambitious, a new game-focused crowdfunding site. Gambitious differs from similar efforts like Kickstarter by letting investors have a small equity stake in the eventual profits of a game, providing them with more incentive to ensure success of the efforts (though current SEC rules currently prevent US citizens from taking part in such profit-sharing). 3D Realms founder Scott Miller sits on the advisory board for Gambitious, and says he sees the site as a brave new model for the game industry. "Why just donate to projects when you can become an owner? The game industry just got a lot more interesting."
Earth No More focuses on a small band of humans trying to survive after an environmental apocalypse. 3D Realms hasn't started accepting donations for the game just yet, and it's unknown when the company will start doing so.
