It's the kind of game we've been wanting to play for so long and we're finally getting a chance to make it, thanks to major advances in game development technology and crowdfunding."
McQuaid, who's a key figure in the evolution of the MMORPG and a veteran of the Everquest franchise, is part of a team full of experienced industry figures. Here's the first developer diary.
