With only five days left in their Kickstarter project, the team behind Vendetta Online would like to get your support. This cross platform massively multiplayer online space game is currently available for the Mac and other platforms, but really wants to get onto the iPad.

The Kickstarter project is looking to raise $100,000 dramatically expand the existing game and create it on the iPad, but they currently only have $38,000 pledged toward that goal.

Vendetta Online is an existing space MMO with a huge game galaxy. You can play on any of the different supported platforms, all of which connect to the same game servers, so if the iPad version gets funded, you’ll be able to play on your iPad while out and about, come home, and then launch the game on your Mac to play wherever you left off. Here’s a trailer of the gameplay, which should eventually appear on the iPad as well.

The extra funding, in addition to helping the iPad port, will allow for expanded gameplay in the existing game, bringing improved graphics, sound and rendering technologies, advancements to the Vendetta universe, and economy features and conquerable territory, as well as improvements to player-owned spaceships.

The developers also have created a video about the iPad port, here, which is totally not embeddable. Bad Kickstarter! If you pledge $15 or more, you’ll get to play the game as soon as the Kickstarter project timeline ends.

If interested, head on over to the Vendetta Online Kickstarter page and check out the videos there, plus the latest project update about the iPad version.

    They should make the iPad version without a pledge. With enhanced graphics if they want to beat galaxy on fire’s next sequel.

    Agreed. I considered donating, but this game needs a serious graphics/sound overhaul to make it worth donating to the cause. They’d probably be better off just releasing it and charging $1.99 for the app to recoup the costs. I’m actually surprised this MMO is still running.

    yeah I have played this and it seriously has some issues. it plays like a game from 98 and looks and sounds like it as well. they should have given it a graphic overhaul first . Also getting started is agonizingly slow. The tutorial sections need to be completely thrown own and redone they are way to slow paced. Also this thing should have gone F2P long ago and they prolly wouldn’t need peoples money to port.
