Will Kickstarter bring the space MMO "Vendetta Online" to the iPad?

MILWAUKEE, WI, January 18th 2013. Award-winning game developer Guild Software is excited to launch a Kickstarter crowdfunding effort to support further game enhancements along with an iPad version of their long-running space MMORPG "Vendetta Online". The game made headlines back in March of 2011, when it launched on the Android platform and became the first 3D MMO to make the jump from PC to mobile, quickly climbing to the #1 paid app on the Play Store and taking center stage in a series of Verizon TV commercials. Now the team at Guild Software is ready to make that leap again, and with the help of supporters will deliver an even more polished and premium experience for iPad owners.

"We'll be thrilled to bring our intense brand of multi-player space gaming to iPad family of devices," said John Bergman, CEO of Guild Software. "Our game offers a seamless transition between desktop and mobile, so players can easily switch back and forth between their iPad and their Mac without limitation."

All players and platforms share the same universe within Vendetta Online, so iOS users will rub elbows with those on Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and WinRT. Beyond iPad support, the Kickstarter could also help fund the next major expansion of the title's gameplay, including enhanced player-owned capital ships and territorial conquest, and is scheduled for completion near the end of 2013.
