"Hollywood producers are taking notice of Multiverse, a startup that makes a massively multiplayer online (MMO) video game possible for a tiny fraction of what they typically cost..."

"...Multiverse offers the alternative of enabling any IP owner to create an MMO game for as little as $10,000 and in about half of the time to market. It does so by using common technology with open standards that are expandable. Developers also may host their own games and use Multiverse's tools to handle subscriptions and billing"

I guess the MMO genre isn't stale enough already, it needs template designs to boot.

Well, if this leads of MMORPGs that aren't space or magic based... or... ehm... no, I think that sums up all the MMORPGs, really.

I love the fact that the one demo they have looks like ass.

there isnt a MMO out that has good graphics. why should theirs be an exception? an MMO is about an all encompassing 'experience', not just how flashy it looks --its like the antithesis to doom3.

This is a scam to get VC money from dumb ass investors. No one on this team has game dev. experience and are trying to sell it with hollywood names.

wasn't so much talking about the graphics as the art direction and for great art direction i have to point no further than wow or guild wars. Really those images are horrible becasue they're huge unvaried plains with a few ogres dropped in. Starfox on the snes looked better.
