StarCraft Universe Turns to Kickstarter for Funding

StarCraft 2 online RPG mod to be made available through for free.

Upheaval Arts, a company formed by a small group of modding hobbyists, is seeking funding on Kickstarter to complete its massive mod project StarCraft Universe.

StarCraft Universe (formerly known as World of StarCraft) is an online RPG where players can create and play as their own hero characters and explore the StarCraft world from a third-person perspective. The game can be played without a paid copy of StarCraft 2, requiring only a account and the free starter edition of StarCraft 2 to work.

Upheaval Arts is looking to raise at least $80,000. The project currently sits at $25,528, with 26 days to go.
