Today Curt Schilling, 38 Studios founder, posted more screens of Project Copernicus on Facebook. He went on to say..

Images from the most magical, breathtaking and awe inspiring world ever created. Images I was “allowed” to peek at along the way, when the team wanted us all to see the magical world we were building.

Project Copernicus was/is the MMO 38 Studios was working on. Personally, the game looks quite excellent. It breaks my heart to see a MMO that may have a lot of potential  – potentially flushed due to the current fallout in 38 Studios. Why Mr. Schilling decided to posts these screens is beyond me. Perhaps to spark buzz for the game to be picked up by another dev. Time will tell the fate of this MMO.

For those who do not use Facebook, I took the liberty of posting some here for you. Enjoy. Tell us what you think.

    The only evidence we have of their actual game making ability is Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning which was mostly underwhelming, so I can’t say I had a lot of faith in what they’d make for an MMO (granted I’m lukewarm on MMOs in general these days). There’s so many MMOs being churned out, that it would have had to really stand out to make a mark, not just have a few positives here and there. To be honest, I’m not particular excited by those screenshots. They look too much on the cartoonish side for my tastes. Plus, Pedro Martinez was always the better pitcher. I suppose from a human empathy standpoint I’d root for it to be picked up just so that some of the employees can get their jobs back, and it’s always nice to see a work like this to completion. Maybe it would have surprised me.
