Novaquark has opened up its first pre-alpha event for KickStarter backers at the Gold+ level. Over 2500 players check into the game to see how the “Single-Shard Cluster” system works.
Novaquark is building a virtual world environment where they hope millions of people will be able to live exciting collective adventures within a vibrant and emergent universe where everything is possible. The company aims at creating a new form of entertainment, where participants are free to create their own stories and environment, economy, political systems, warfare, etc. The vision for Dual Universe is to create the first virtual online civilization, a vision close to Ernest Cline’s Oasis in Ready Player One.
