Reviews

“The most randomly awesome game I've played in a while”
MMORPG.com

“... generation upon generation of user-made structures dot the landscape, and oversized shapes and enigmatic letters mystify like Nazca lines. It feels free, like playing with Legos as kid. You have agency. There are all sorts of weird ways to play. You can transform into a zombie if you want, try and spread a plague, mix things up. Oh, and beware of LawyerCats. They’re out for blood.”
Indie Statik

“... this is a must play”

Features


100% Player Built World - The entire world is built by players. Build your own house, town, voxelart, or dungeon. The world is massive -- there's plenty of space to build in, and it streams in as you explore (no load screens).

Be the Mayor - Start your own town and invite your friends. You'll have an array of management tools for overseeing your town.

Interactive Development - The entire game only has one full-time developer, and development is still ongoing. You can submit and vote on ideas -- many of the top voted ideas have been implemented into the game. Free updates with new content and features are frequently released.

Anti-Griefing Systems - Several systems protect players from griefing.

Free To Play - No purchase necessary to have fun. Support the developer and buy a fancy hat... or don't. (Premium items give NO competitive advantage)

Customize your Character - Wear hats, clothing, accessories, change your skin color

Become a Zombie - Want to be a zombie? You can! But you'll need a steady supply of delicious brains from other players. Don't worry, after you eat their brain, they'll be zombies too!

Fight Nefarious Enemies - Congressional Lobbyist Slugs, LawyerCats, and Hipsters oh my.

MegaMap - The world is huge, so the MegaMap interface (based on Google Maps API) is a handy way to browse the world and share your creations with friends.

Music - Enjoy chiptune from legendary artists Danimal Cannon, Zef, PROTODOME, and Honin Myo Audio.

Reasons:

Combat? A joke. I poked cats and hippies with a blue sword.

Building? Nope. Everywhere is claimed and the mayors are never on.

MMO? NO ONe IS EVER ON. And when they are they just complain.

RPG? What? Sorry? What is an RPG? I dont think this game is one.

8-Bit? Uh...no. Not in ANY way.

Music? Have decent. Half. It would bug out and... static.

Overall:
.5/6

Look closely. Thats a .5 not a 5.

Yeah. It sucks. And the people that were on only ever helped out them selves. None of the new guys.

And the develper was so lasy he had people make his dundeons and buildings for him. His jokes were stupid too.

Redo-
.5/8

Just...terrible.

It was hard for me to find pros for this game, but I'll try to make a comprehensive list:

PROS:
Good casual MMORPG with user-built quests to ensure new quests are added to the system

You will be called names that you never thought you would be called after elementary school ended, like "poopy head", dork, and "fart sniffer"

This game will make you reminisce the days when you were between 9 and 14 years old.

CONS:
Community is between 9 and 14 years old; no, that's not me trolling them, they are literally between 9 and 14 years old. Do not expect a good community here, because it just isn't good.

Game is way too easy, even without the purchase of plat because of individuals who have made "farming zoos", which spawn creeps and grant incredibly easy gold/exp. If you don't use them, you will be way behind.

You will be called names that you never thought you would be called after elementary school ended, like "poopy head", dork, and "fart sniffer".

Mods are also between 9 and 14 years old.

The graphics look like they were created by someone between 9 and 14 years old.

I would rather peel back my fingernails, superglue them to my eyeballs, and then take a bath in fire than play this game ever again.
