[Indiegogo page] Well, it just had to happen some day. A campaign for a “Free To Play Sword Art Online MMO” was spotted recently on, Indiegogo, led by a group of supposed North American developers and headed by an “experienced” programmer. The campaign is set to “Flexible Funding”, which means the “team” gets whatever is contributed even if it fails to hit the goal.
While I understand there is still clamor and hype for a Sword Art Online MMORPG, this sort of unlicensed fan product, even if it is real, will just get everyone involved in big trouble. With virtual reality being much-discussed at game conventions since last year, with Sony’s Morpheus and Facebook’s Oculus Rift, perhaps Sword Art Online is not really that far away as we imagined.
