Divergence Online seeking crowd funding

2006 sandbox MMO game now back on the radar; creator releases video detailing project history and goals.


Divergence Online, a sandbox sci-fi massively multiplayer online game that has been on hiatus since its original announcement in 2006, is now back in development and is seeking crowd-sourced funds to keep its momentum.

According to an IndieGogo crowd-funding page, the goal the project needs to hit is $50,000. Players who contribute $10 are guaranteed beta access, while players who pay more can get other tiered rewards ranging from an exclusive character class to a personal in-game island.

The project has raised $860 at this point, with 57 days left before it closes. For more information, check out the game’s IndieGogo page.

Back in 2006, developer Stainglass Llama announced that it was creating a sci-fi sandbox MMO game called Divergence that allowed players to toggle between an action-style interface or a traditional auto-attack system. The game also featured a nonlinear world, open PVP, lootable corpses, and unique races and breeds.
