A new upcoming MMO is in pre-production, with basically a working prototype created, that looks like it could be quite promising. It is a ways off from release, right now speculation has Alpha phase 1 starting by the end of this year, with a full release by the end of 2018 -- so it has quite a bit of work remaining to complete. That being said, it is definitely something worth keeping an eye on, and if it continues to keep the same form it has now, I will go all in and round up the troops for the release.
The Kickstarter campaign kicked off on Monday, May 1st this week. I myself pledged to the campaign (with the Braver of World's pledge, for Alpha 1 access) -- if anyone else is interested, here is the link to their Kickstarter campaign:
