On Tuesday, Paizo Publishing announced the future launch of a Pathfinder MMO. Actually, the announcement was more of a statement of the intent to develop an MMO.
So far, only some basic concepts for the game have been set, and a new company, Goblinworks, created as host for the project. Paizo CEO/Goblinworks COO, Lisa Stevens, explained that the game system will focus on empowering players to create their own play experiences, for example, building towns, negotiating political alliances, even founding and leading nations.
In the meantime, there is still much work to be done before Paizo can realize its aspirations. In fact, Goblinworks is looking for investors to help finance the project. The minimum commitment is $100,000.
Far as I know the OGL license did not allow for electronic games based on the works. Doesn’t that mean this game will not be OGL based? They’ll need several million and several years to build the game. I hold no breath.
