In that case perhaps you should look into it more, since the permadeath is not as bad as you are assuming.
Thank you, OP. Even though I hate the idea of permadeath, I was curious about this game. Reading your post (and several others), suggests that permadeath isn't the worst issue, it seems. It's becoming very clear that this isn't a game for me.
Doesn't seem like there's a huge interest among others, either. This site now gives away beta keys, and I've never seen the amount of "keys left" tick down as slow as for this game. Still over 5,900 keys left, only around 500 gone since yesterday, even though they advertise it on the front page.

How do you figure that? Minecraft is one of the most crafting-centric games there is and features what is essentially permadeath, FFA PvP, and even full loot.
The problem isn't that the game has permadeath and crafting. The problem is the game is nothing but a gargantuan convoluted grind... with permadeath.

Originally posted by Airspell On paper the game sounded good, but I pretty much hate everything about the game so far. Starting with bad UI. The way you get skills was the wrong choice for a sand box game in my view, inspirationals ? Really ? You somehow get skills from finding a rock and not from actually doing things ? The way they did combat is pretty funny too at least from the melee I saw. The graphics are unnceessarily childish, which I find odd since most kids don't play sandbox games. In all honesty they did pretty much everything wrong as far as feature choices go, or at least in implementing them. I couldn't recommend this game to anyone , especially not any fan of sandbox games.
Pretty much how I feel unfortunately.

Originally posted by grimgryphonI really wanted to like this game, but the grind is the worst I've seen in an MMO. Salem is a good example of why you should never try and make a game mechanic too much like its real-world counterpart.
In this case they actually made it more complicated than it is in real life. If only it was as simple as in the real world.
