One man's Crusade to make a top-tier MMO
It's E3 time, so that means a number of small developers are out there promising the world. David Allen, onetime CEO of defunct Artifact Entertainment (which produced most of the once ambitious MMO Horizons: Empire of Istaria, though there was an embezzlement scandal at the top near Artifact's dire end- according to the rumor mill) is hard at work with developer Quest Online on Crusade.
Quest Online says Crusade will offer PvE and PvP support for soloing and group-oriented adventure, and advises you to hop along to their website for a more in-depth look at what the game's about (and not, for example, a news item largely cribbed from their press release).
Meanwhile, David Allen's talking it up. "As a group of dedicated gamers, we feel that the design of Crusade marks the direction we would like to see the industry go," he says.
