[Preview] Deepworld: A Crafting & Mining MMO

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe CitadelMMORPG.COM Staff Posts: 21,471 Epic

Deepworld is a seemingly simple game with amazing depth. It's billed as a crafting and mining MMO and we've got a first look preview to share. Check it out and then leave your thoughts in the comments.

You start off with a pick, a jet-pack and lots of inventory space. Everything stacks to the hundreds and you can explore and mine to your hearts delight before you begin to contemplate crafting.  The tutorial takes you through movement – you toggle a joystick by touching the edges of the device, mining – you touch blocks with a pick in hand and crafting – touching items that are not greyed out in your crafting menu.

    So basically this is Terraria but with the mmo.

    Sounds kind of cool, but I think would be better in 3D. Just my opinion, of course.

    I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

    Yeahhh, I'm with lizard on this one, should have been 3D

    I wish people would stop tossing the word MMO around. It basically means nothing now.

    So you're connected to a master server, but you never see anyone until you friend them? Sounds like Minecraft with a friends list instead of a server browser.

    Remember when MMO meant thousands of people in the same area that you can see 100% of the time?

    I'm going to have to agree with the 3D option, if this was 3D it would easily gravitate to the top of the MMO charts.

    No, because it never did.

    There isn't a "right" or "wrong" way to play, if you want to use a screwdriver to put nails into wood, have at it, simply don't complain when the guy next to you with the hammer is doing it much better and easier. - Allein

    -What others have said (minus the 3D)

    Terraria Online would/could have rocked... I was interested in this until I saw the actual combat. Looks horrible.

    You can see everyone in a given world. The friends list is just to keep tabs and allow people to collaborate in building.

    Thousands is a stretch, but hundreds could work :)

    Sounds like a game created just for I-pads.

    I got this gifted to me for mac but have a pc so I hope I can get it changed to pc if not I guess I won't be checking it out.

    This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

    LOL about as much a MMO as Pong.

    I'd buy it and probably love it if it was for PC

    Ew... I want a 3D mining and crafting mmo with good graphics, huge amounts of depth, and an intricate economy. Make one.
