Curt Schilling's 38 Studios has run into some financial problems recently with the state of Rhode Island, but perhaps this just-released video of their in-progress Project Copernicus is a sign that things could be looking up for the Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning developer.

Project Copernicus is said to be set in the same world as Amalur, though where that was a single player RPG Copernicus will be an MMO.

With what we've got to go on—this fly-by of the game's world—it's shaping up beautifully. Let's hope 38 can get their problems sorted out in time to finish it.

Would you return to Amalur in an MMO? Let us know in the comment or on Twitter.
