Raph Koster’s Playable Worlds lands $2.7M to create a new kind of MMO

As an industry, we’re actually still very much at the start of that market shift,” he explained. “While the top charts are dominated by online games of various sorts, the vast majority of the market is still not really run as games-as-a-service – one statistic I saw is that market penetration for online games is still around 10%! There’s a lot of room to grow.
