"Worlds in Progress" initiative.
DHU was announced as the "featured MMO" on Multiverse's version 1.0, and the developers recently provided a bit more info:
"When fully completed, DHU will be a "science-fiction style game where they will compete against one another through a fast-action combat system. Set against the backdrop of a futuristic Mars colony, DHU will also include a player-driven economy, a political system and a learning-based skill system."

"Working with Multiverse on DHU has been an amazing experience, both in terms what their platform has helped us achieve and the close collaboration between our engineering teams," said Adrian Wright, CEO, Max Gaming Technologies.
