CasinoRPG, a Browser-Based Tycoon/MMORPG/Casino Game

Kickstarter Games

This Kickstarter campaign is to fund the development of a cross between a Tycoon game, MMORPG, and a gambling game.  This game really intrigues me because I’ve always been interested in a Mass Multiplayer Online-type environment where you can keep building an empire and the game continues ever after you log off.  In games like Minecraft, you can craft some really cool things, but unless you’re on a large public server, you aren’t really sharing that with anyone.  But in CasinoRPG, you get to grow your fortune from the ground up and then other real-live players can interact with your creations.  Also, why have a fortune when you can’t throw it all away on one throw of the dice?  GoldFire wants to give you that opportunity.  You can use your (play-money) fortune to gamble in any of the other players’ casinos to further expand, or destroy, your bank account.  Another great thing about this game is that it will run on HTML 5 via your browser.  This means that you’ll be able to play it on any newer mobile phone or tablet as well as your PC or Mac.  This means you can take your game with you anywhere and have the same experience no matter what device your playing on.  If you’re at all interested in Tycoon-type games, this is something you’ll have to try.  This project absolutely needs to get more exposure.

Perry Brauner
I'm an intern architect by trade, but the overarching theme of my life has always been trying to keep up with the newest, coolest technology. Ever since I picked up an NES controller, I've been hooked on the latest and greatest gadgets, gizmos, and toys. Whether it's gaming, mobile phones and accessories, or PCs and Apple products, I'm interested. I use many Apple products in my daily life, such as the iPhone 5, iPad 4, and my MacBook Pro. I also recently built an HTPC for my living room in order to stream videos to my HDTV. I'd like to say I'm a pretty well rounded techie.
