revealing Seldon Crisis
, an open world sci-fi massively multi-player online game (MMO) based on an original story written by Riccardo Simone, a young Italian writer of science fiction, and loosely inspired by the "Foundation Series" by Isaac Asimov.
The game's economy, politics and even the infrastructure will be in the hands of the players who are not bound by preset paths and forced linear progression. Players can earn money and increase their character level by crafting and trading goods between the many sectors of the galaxy and its stations, hunting pirates and collecting loot and bounty, or fighting other players for their equipment and cargo.
Seldon Crisis will begin a Kickstarter campaign in September, which will hopefully lead to the debut of the beta version in 2015.
