I've come across this indie dev team that is making an MMORPG that allows you to go in game and add things just like you would a complex editor, but its simple. I was curious if anyone has seen the video like I have and their thoughts on it. Also, I went on the site and noticed it's in closed beta at the moment with an OPEN beta December 1st. I will post a link to the website and to this video I watched. It shows the character in-game spawning trees and creating quests, all while in the game. It's called Islands of War and I think its looking really good for an indie development.
So my questions are;
What do you guys think about the trailer and the concept of the game?
Specifically if anyone is in the closed beta now and if anyone is going to sign up like I did?

I want a game like this to succeed but im curious to know what you guys think. I think there is a great market for games that allow much customization. As far as in an MMO not sure it's been done to this level before. It has the fantasy aspect as most MMO's do but where it shines is in the freedom to create and populate your own island. Be it real players (friends or guildies) or NPCs/Mobs.
I can see players doing the Dungeons and Dragons thing with the world builder being the GM and his friends coming in and playing with him.
I can see guilds making a place for their players to come together and chit chat. Like a Guild city or whatnot.
I guess Im curious to see if I am just a fan boy or if you guys are having the same ideas?
