I am not sure how many are interested in hearing what's new with 16 year old MMORPG that pretty much has not updated significantly since day one (probably not many?).
But, if I can plug games and expansions that are not even out yet, then in fair-ness sake I feel I must also talk about even this game (since it was brought to my attention)....No matter how much plugging a fluffy furry MMO pains me (and frightens me with how scary nice they are).
And, especially since they seem to have passed the half way point to their goal which shows it is not a lost cause. As well as the maker having been involved with ultima and other big titles. And the game Furcadia itself being recognized by the guinness book of world records as the longest running social MMO ( http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/records-9000/longest-running-social-mmorpg/ )...They are now making a real effort and I goto support that with at least a mention here.
Got an email today from furcadia (apperently they never forget any ones registered account info regardless of how long ago it was...this must have been...geeze 10 years ago i tried this game for a few weeks?).
The email was about them starting a kickstarter account to raise funds in order to make some massive updates. Here is the link for any interested in helping them a long http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1810822448/furcadia-the-second-dreaming
As it stands I don't view this game as worth the download time given that there are other options that offer the same thing with more ability and far superior graphics (I am not a graphics whore usually but when the difference is that big...yeah)....such as IMVU...or just about any browser based game you might be linked to through this or another site like this one in banner ads.
That said since it was brought to my attention earlier today I did revisit it and I have to say if it is brought into the modern age (mainly by giving it a lot more functionality that modern low end crank out Social MMO's have by default and are now for granted)... It may have a lot to offer... this is my summation of how it stands as it is:
- Fairly short download and install time.
- Easy account and charecter creation.
- Colorfull well done world and interface taking into consideration the graphical and overall technological level of the game.
- Large world with several maps to explore.
- Gaming rooms, Age rated areas, and roleplay regions.
- Player made content in the form of guild halls and sub-map hangouts (dreams as they call them). That are in their own right persistent.
