    What Is It? -
    Who is making it? -
    It's a new MMO in development by Funcom, those who brought us Dreamfall\The Longest Journey, Anarchy Online and Age of Conan. Not a terrible CV, then.

    What Now? -
    Take the initiation test on the website above to be entered in the Beta draw. It's a funky test, asks you some questions. You can't get them wrong, it just has 3 possible outcomes and suggests what type of character to play.

    But sounds good.

    Yeah AOC was dissapointing wasn't it? But. The Good news is they were developing this at the same time as AOC, yet this is still going. Could lead to something a lot more polished :)

    Been following it loosely since last January (2008), sounds interesting but Funcom do have a bit to prove to us.

    I will remain reluctant but I'll keep my eye on it. Seems to be a few MMOs that havn't been following the Blizzards Guide Book in making MMOs atleast.

    Its great to see some MMOs coming out which think a little bit outside the box. Having said that, Funcom have A LOT to do to show to me that they have the faintest clue how to make a successful MMO.

    I'd say AO is pretty successful, considering what other MMOs were around of the time and how it's still going and changing.

    Flash thing seemed to be borked on my laptop, kept randomly highlighting answers. Ended up with the Templars, quite happy with that.

    I dont know...it effectively had to go free to play in order to continue, whilst older MMOs are still pay per month. It was also an absolute shambles of a game at release which in turn destroyed any reputation it might have built up from the outset. Its still going admittedly, mind you..there are text based muds which are still going.

    True but my point still stands, I think it's fair to say it was successful enough. Also back then, releasing an MMO smoothly wasn't heard of and today, it still really isn't heard of. I was lucky myself not have problems with any of the bugs on release that stopped me playing ;)

    It's not just free to play either, further access requires you to pay as I'm sure you know already.

    I still play it now and again.

    If it is not a crazy instance fest I will give it a go :) All the constant loading screens and having my mates in other instances when we in the same area just ruins immersion for me

    Its good people are moving outside the genres that they have seemed stuck in for so long. Maybe we will get some info and the CCP WoD MMO soon.

    I think I will wait a while on this one considering who the devs are.

    At a wild guess, an enormous stab in the dark, some quite revolutionary thinking...I am going to say people keep falling for it because they like it?

    Certainly I enjoy the MMO genre way , waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more than any other genre of PC game.

    and certainly the most dullest which requires a LOT less skill than any other genre of pc game

    Subjective personal opinion.

    I personally find text based adventure games the most dullest which require a lot less skill than any other genre of PC game. However, everyone is different and has different tastes which I entirely acknowledge.
