Zenith is an upcoming Cyberpunk VR MMORPG, for both PC and VR, and is receiving a huge amount of support from its audience. Over 625% funded, the upcoming immersive anime world is well on its way to coming to life, with over 1600 backers. This happened in slightly more than two weeks, which makes it the most successful VR-tagged Kickstarter project. Ramen VR has been releasing stretch goals details, and the final goal, 250,000 will unlock a “Zenith Level Editor” using Unity. With it, the Zenith community can create/publish their own custom levels in Zenith. Additional data will be available in the infographic below.
Zenith is the brainchild of Andy Tsen and Lauren Frazier, co-founders of Ramen VR with a decade of experience at Unity, Google, and building startup companies. In addition to the game’s success in passing over $150,000 of crowdfunding, it has attracted investment from Y Combinator, the highly respected provider of seed funding for startups that has funded startups such as Airbnb, Dropbox, and Twitch. The Kickstarter will continue to go on until September 26th, and you can find it right here.
“Thank you and wow, is all I can say,” shares Lauren Frazier. “We wanted to involve our community and share Zenith’s progress early on, so with the voracious reception we’ve seen from backers, we’re able to do so which we’re beyond thrilled and humbled.”
