Socialotron, the Sex MMO

ChuckmanChuckman West Jordan, UTPosts: 25Member Uncommon

I stumbled across an article on www.1-Up.com about a game that was dubbed "Sociolotron, the Sex MMO" and it gave a link to the website www.sociolotron.com.  I went to the site and read the information about it.  At first it seems like a lame idea, and the graphics are nothing special.  But then I thought there were some really interesting features to the game, but also very adult oriented features including: Permadeath, Blackmail, Graveyards to memorialize the dead, Contagious diseases, Rape, Prison, Cults based on Blood Magic or Sexual Practices, Player ran Government, Religious Aspects, Cyber Sex and more.  I came to mmorpg.com to see if it was listed here and what the ratings were on it etc, but noticed it is not on the game list.  I was was wondering:

1. Why isn't this game covered on this site.  Too adult oriented or too explicit?

2. Have any of you played this game and what are your thoughts?

3. Do you think this game has a legitimate place in the mmorpg genre or do you think it is just another "Sims Online" with over the top explicit themes?

I personally found it an interesting concept and that it would provide some very different and interesting gameplay.  Definately unique and maybe even a little scary!  What are your thoughts?

    I can't imagin many women playing a game like that so who exactly is getting raped ::::06::

    Personly I'm not really into fetish type games where people can act out things their not allowed or too unwilling to do irl. Considering how the mods react to this type of thing on the forums I'm not surprised they don't list it. I think games like that don't belong on a site lke this but /shrug I wouldn't complain if they did add it.

    Even though sex is a part of real life ( :P ) I don't think games need to focus on it any more then just clothing and toon detail. The rest should be left up to player imagination.

    I read their website for a good hour, and I have to say, if all the features they have listed are actually implemented in the game, then it sounds like the most in-depth MMO to date. I'm considering signing up, anyone played it before?

    With all the sex things aside, the Justice, Death, Disease, Drugs, Heirs, Pregnancy,  all of it sounds fascinating.

    I'd like to hear if all of this stuff is fully funtional or not.

    or what is yet to be."

    ::::04:: Im not against a further advancement of online games at all, its always good that some try to find new ways to make/sell/update games. ::::40:: Even though I don't pay such games myself, I stick to UO to flee from reality every now and then, I guess some people would rather move their reality into the computer. ::::31:: but yeah from the website text it could be one of the online games that reaches closest to realism in content.

    From website
    However, over the past 3 years Sociolotron SM has involved into a multiplayer game with 100-200 simultaneous players online at peak times

    Sounds dodgy. ::::02::

    Socialotron,  hmm. how to do a review of it.

    After talking with those in IRC and on the forums it seems the game was built by one person and has evolved over the pass couple of years with help from the player base.  The game does have a lot of depth, more than any other I have come across. 

    For instance, you wander into a room and see blood on the floor, you can examine the room and act as a detective to figure out what occured there.  Female characters can become pregnant and produce an heir.  It has perma death, and an afterlife,  To prevent griefing of unskilled players it has classification titles such as newbie, casual that determine what other people can do to your character.  If you let your guard down, you can be seduced or overpowered.   Someone do you wrong?  well just notify the local magistrate and a judgement can occur. You can do plastic surgery on your character to change much of his appearence.

    There are a lot of neat features in the game.  What I didnt like about it was the user interface.  It is very clumsy to use, and only shows properly at 1 screen resolution.  The zones are extremely small and sometimes confusing in the layout.

    The players in the game seem really friendly and help new arrivals get started.  As far as the community, it seems there are actually more females playing then men.  I think thats because the game actually treats the female characters a little better than the males,  Females are the only ones that can produce an heir, and females can actually control males through their seduction and actions.

    I played the game for a month, didnt get very far into it as far as skill wise.  The customization features are limitless, and yes it is an adult theme game so not for the timid. It has a detailed crafting system even if somewhat simple in its execution.

    The game is a good example of thinking outside the box and not following the "crowd"  It would be interesting to see what could be done with a decent budget  and better graphics.

    Think most of those "females" are guys playing females so they can dress them scantily and have sex with people.

    Game seems somewhat interesting, but the kind of people behind those avatars disturbs me a little.

    You seem to forget that the largest audience for MMOs is the 29-45 year old women bracket. I read an article about 7 months ago in CGM that about this game, and it even SHOWED pictures of the women that played, and yes, most were over 40.

    Ok, well maybe they are women then :P  Either way, still disturbs me, lol!

    Myself being female, I would not be caught dead playing this game. I find it morally wrong and discusting. I can understand why it exists though, and if it can help stop some sexual abuse instead of encouraging it, then I'm for it, but I'll never load this crap on my computer.
