As we reported previously VR MMORPG Zenith broke Kickstarter goals by raising 625% of its goal in less than four hours. Now, the cyberpunk MMORPG has raised over 1000% of its original goal, setting itself as the most successful VR Kickstarter ever.

In a new press release, it was revealed that Zenith raised over 1000% crowd funding and hit a total of $250,000 with 24 hours still left to go. A new race and trailer has been revealed as well.

“The Mineko are a race of humanoid cat people from a distant land who will be playable in Zenith. They are distinguished by their cats’ eyes, pointed ears, and tails. They are, on average, the same height as humans, but they tend to be slender and more lithe, able to jump long distances and maintain their balance well. For many years, the Mineko Ballet has been a popular Zenith attraction; humans and Mineko alike love to watch the graceful dancers. The only thing that sets them off? Dogs, of course!”

Additionally, cross-play will exist between VR and PC, offering, “a futuristic universe in which players will fight, craft, explore, and live as they forge alliances and friendships in guilds and parties.”
