    • ROTMG


    • 8BitMMO


    • Wakfu

    These all try some intereting things. I've not tried Wakfu but read up on it. Alternatively some mmobiles:



    • Shadow Cities


    • Traveller AR

    All sorta smaller mmorpgs trying to pave new directions which in mmorpgs is ALWAYS A BREATH OF FRESH AIR. I'd love to try my hand at designing a smaller mmorpg with some interesting ideas, but that's a tall order beyond my capabilities... Still I think there's an opportunity here. If I think up some more suggestions I'll post them.

    You might try Conclave ([url]http://playconclave.com[/url]); it's not strictly an MMO, but does innovative things with the combination of turn-based, asynchronous play with party-based adventure.

    wakfu doesnt really fit, its not really a little indie title, sure its got cute hand drawn graphics, but at its heart its a pretty complex sandbox game and has a fairly decent budget (its a popular tv show in france),  there is a free trial to level 20 but really you need to sub to get the most of it (it's a reduced sub fee though)

    I would describe wakfu as Ultima Online with the aesthetics of some weird european cartoon and the combat of heroes of might and magic - after taking a load of acid.

    It's not an mmo indeed though you can play it with friends over the internet or LAN, i have no idea how many can join your server however if there even is a max.

    It's also as sanboxy as you can get since there is no goal for you to complete, no quest to do and most importantly no one telling you what to do. You wanna dig all day long? do it. You wanna adventure and kill stuff ? do it. etc etc.

    Oh yeah and huge maps ARE huge, last time i spent digging over an hour and i was not even near hell (last layer afaik).

    yeah terraria is kinda castlevania meets minecraft - its really good but not a mmo.

    some good indie games that are not mmos would be:

    terraria

    the binding of isaac

    S.P.A.Z

    Space Giraffe (which you can get in a double pack with the older but still ace grid runner)

    orcs must die

    dungeon defenders (although way way too much DLC)

    trine 1 & 2

    braid

    world of goo

    the freespace 2 rebuild project (and its babylon 5 and wing commander mods)

    super meat boy

    Amnesia

    space chem

    stacking

    To the moon

    ^^^^^^^ all of these games are better than 90% of those AAA formulaic games ^^^^^^
