Wisconsin-based indie developer Guild Software is hoping to "drastically expand" cross-platform space MMORPG Vendetta Online and port it to Apple's iPad.
In order to do that in a timely fashion, though, the company must raise at least $100,000 in funds from the Kickstarter community in the next 37 days.
Vendetta Online, which is already available on the Mac, PC, and on Android, is set in a large and evolving galaxy where your survival depends on your ability to defeat opponents in real-time twitch battles.
You'll also need to know how to mine, trade valuable resources within a dynamic economy, and manufacture important items that will help you complete your daily chores.
If its Kickstarter campaign is successful, Guild Software will port Vendetta Online across to the iPad - complete with Retina display graphics and new voice-overs - during the first half of this year.
By the end of 2013, the company will also release version 1.9 of its space simulation. This major firmware update will feature new graphics, improvements to player-owned ships, conquerable territories, and much more.
According to Guild Software, Vendetta Online for iPad will cost "around $1" to download.
An iPhone version will also be created if the company smashes through its funding goal and attracts a whopping $200,000 in pledges.
