Hello!

So... what is Mirage Realms ? Well, it's this!


Mirage Realms is a 2D MMORPG in open alpha currently available for both PC and Android that aims to provide a massively multiplayer retro gaming experience akin to playing world of warcraft on your gameboy colour. You can check it out and play over at the website!


As the game's developer, I have pledged to the community that I will never introduce any "pay to win" style microtransactions and will strive to focus on gameplay and fun first, money second. This strategy has won me a solid following and a great community foundation, but it has also meant the game has generated little to no revenue during it's Alpha period so far.


As it stands the game is struggling to get to version 1.0 as I work on it only in my spare time and the scope and scale of the project is absolutely massive. I want to deliver an honest, free to play dungeon crawling MMO more than anything, but it has become clear to me that at the project's current pace this game will never get a chance to get off of the ground.


The goal here is to raise enough money to allow me to pay the mortgage for at least 3 months so I can quit my job and go full time in an effort to get the version 1 game across the finish line. The idea here is I think it will take me 3 months of focused effort to get the game to a stage where people are willing to pay £2 a month to access level 50+ content. You'll be able to pay this initially through the google pay on your phone but later on other methods will be added. Its worth mentioning the next update is pretty much doubling the content for level 50 and below so there will be PLENTY of game for free to explore.


No micro transactions, just a flat rate to access all of the high level zones - forever. Hopefully once the game is this far along in development and there is that much content available, the player base will grow to a size large enough where this small charge will add up across thousands of players and allow the game to stand on its own two feet as a business.


The initial goal here is £5000, if we hit that then its all systems go. This is a really tight budget that will allow me to support myself for 3 months (after tax it will just about cover the mortgage and some food with my partner's wages added) while working full time on bringing Mirage to v1.0. Anything we can raise beyond that point secures more time for me to pour into the code.


So what will version 1 deliver?

- A world at least 10x its current size
- Zones, items and monsters for players up to level 200
- At least 10 different active spells for each class
- Talent trees to customise your class further
- Guilds
- A guild war system
- Lore and NPCs to talk too all over the game world
- Quests for each zone and level bracket
- Support for IOS
- Instanced dungeons designed for groups of 3 for key level brackets
- Daily quests


The upcoming update brings RNG based gear stats, increases all the zones to 4x their current size, introduces an elemental system and the first pass of gear enchanting. The game has all the makings of something really great, but I cannot get it where I want it to be at the pace I am currently going.


Please help me take this risk and pour 3 months of my life into turning this hobby project into the definitive retro 2D MMORPG on mobile.
