About The Marvel Universe Online

(THIS IS A FAN PROJECT AND IS NOT ASSOCIATED WITH MARVEL, DISNEY, OR AFFILIATES)

THE PROJECT

Imagine a persistent, third-person, open-world, action MMO with scalable destructibility, real-time physics, and the ability to support thousands of players. A game that has a character customization tool that offers millions of possible costume and power combinations limited only by your imagination. The Marvel Universe Online is a proposal to create a game that encompasses ever part of the Marvel Universe, from Latvaria to Wakanda to the Shiar Homeworld, if you have read about it, you can play it! It lets the player delve deep in the lore of all things Marvel as an active participant in past and present events, while giving them the opportunity to create their own path toward the future. Your actions can have meaningful and lasting repercussions to the world around you as you build your reputation as a superhero or supervillain.

The Marvel Universe Online is community effort to pitch the perfect game idea that blends the best gaming technologies with the most popular comic world. Check it out in detail here https://www.facebook.com/muommo and the game pitch site here http://www.themarveluniverseonline.com/

THE PLAN

I started this campaign to help create the most professional and detailed pitch possible with the commission of artists and web designers to bring this idea to life.

The Marvel Universe Online Project is two parts. First is the game pitch where we present concepts and design features of a massive, open-world, third-person game set in the Marvel Universe. Everything is extensively researched and presented as if for development. With our expanding knowledge of the development process and help from folks like @AWSGameTech, we continue fine tune our presentations. Next is the lore and community features of the OHOTMUO (Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Online) where we showcase artists from around the fandom. We use our platform to support up and coming artists and writers by integrating their ideas into the history of our fictional Earth 619. Everyone can feel like they are a part of a fun and fascinating project. We understand the "closed-circuit" nature of game development and decided to take our ideas and pitch the to the fans first in hopes of establishing a solid proof-of-concept. Even if we never get traction within the industry, we feel that if for no other reason, bringing comic and gaming fans together makes this project a worthwhile endeavor.

SPENDING

Money generated from this campaign will be used to further fund this project (of which I have financed entirely on my own up to this point) and perhaps extend it beyond my original vision. All the funds from this campaign (and then some more from myself) will go to keeping this project going for as long as I and my artists are available or until this project reaches its natural conclusion. I will not be making any profit from this endeavor and all funds will be spent to further this project in one form or another. Any donations you make to this project will be just that, donations. As such I ask that you should only donate if you believe in this project and want to see it grow. This campaign is an open-ended campaign and as such, if you would like to donate weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly, whateverly, you are welcome to do so. If you would like to sponsor a particular character bio in the for of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Online (see below), it is a reward for $25 or more patrons . Simply specify the character you want along with the donation.


THANK YOU

The devil is in the details. Pie in the sky ideas don't make a game, knowing what it takes and making the right moves does. This is why it's important to get honest opinions, professional advice, even if that advice is to quit. The details will never really solidify into a solid pitch without input from as many sources as possible and even then there is no guarantee of success. There are no delusions about the odds of Marvel even talking notice, but something this great is worth the effort. So, what is the Marvel Universe Online? If you've ever loved comic books, it will be the greatest experience you've ever played. This couldn't happen without you, because in the Marvel Universe Online, YOU ARE THE HERO!
