Sudden Crisis Overview

Sudden Crisis is a sandbox MMO that allows you to freely travel the galaxy without stargates dictating your movement. You will start your journey with a small fighter craft and some money, starting to work your way towards bigger ships, wealth and influence over other players. It is completely up to you how you will achieve this: Through diplomacy, intelligence, military strength or economical power. Have an impact on thousands of other players in a seamless single shard universe. Write your own story, forge a great empire or cause the next Sudden Crisis.

The game will be completely player driven. The economy, politics and even the infrastructure is in the hand of the the users. You are unbound from preset paths and there will no linear progression the player has to go through, instead choose how you wish to evolve your character through traits, skills and levels. You can earn money and increase your character level by crafting and trading goods between the many sectors of the galaxy and its stations, by hunting pirates and collecting their loot and bounty or by fighting other players for their equipment and cargo.

Renamed 'Sudden Crisis'

In an apparent nod to ongoing threats of litigation, the Seldon Crisis game, said to be loosely based around the works of Isaac Asminov, has been rebranded "Sudden Crisis". As part of the rebranding effort, the Indiegogo project has been updated (thanks, Vrika!) to reflect the new name. According to the Sudden Crisis Facebook page, the game is largely the same, but with a new name.
