For the past few days now, I've been playing a browser-based MMO called Glitch. The game, IMO, is a mix of Little Big Planet in the art style department, while having gameplay elements of EVE Online and Animal Crossing.
The game is hard to explain, since there's nothing else like it at the moment. You make a character called a Glitchen. Character creation consists of skin color, eyes, nose, ears, and mouth which can call be changed in scale and placement. Hair and hair color is obviously a choice, and you pick over 400(!) items to wear.
There's no gear in the game, just standard tools (though Glitchens with certain skills can make better versions). It controls like a platformer, but has a huge emphasis on crafting and playing wth the tools the devs give you. It is a skill based game with no classes, and the skills are learned in real time ala EVE.
There's two types of reserves you gotta keep up: Energy and Mood. Energy you need to eat, and Mood you can get by certain drinks and actions (there's a healing skill that helps both, though). The game has a God system where you can gain favor to spend for faster skill gains, a housing system, it's own economy since most stuff is player made, and a world built like EVE's (instead of star systems and jump gates, you have streets and street signs).
Though it's browser based, the whole game world is persistent. And since the dev's have good plenty enough funding, the game's quite polished. If you want to learn more, here's a nice video Beau of Massively.com did over the game:
There's currently a week of waiting time if you register for the game (they're adding more streets to support all the new players, since it's all on a single server), but if you want to skip that send me a PM on here with your email. I have three invites left, and they'll be given out first come first serve.
