About This Game

There is no right way to live an afterlife. The world fell to pieces ages ago and all history was eroded in the desert. Magic has brought you back from the dead, but it hasn't given you purpose or a mission. It's your decision how to live. Will you roam the ruins as a bandit, murdering others for their loot? Will you build your own town, away from it all, in the open desert? Lead a militia to capture key areas and battle the creatures there? You are not fed hints or guided by quests. Instead the mysteries of the world are yours to discover at your own pace. All players build and fight in the same massive world, honing their skills in first person combat magic.

Animyst is being actively developed by a team of two, and all player feedback is seriously considered. Many serious gameplay changes and updates have come directly from player suggestions. Come join the discussion and influence Animyst as it evolves into a full PVP MMORPG unlike any other.
