We thought the Slender Man game is so awesome we decided to try and emulate it on our freeshard for Ultima Online. It's still work in progress, but I'm really looking forward to see how cool it's going to be. Plus, we had to change some mechanics, because, well it's UO. But, it's essentially the same thing.
What we've done so far:
A nice little UO representation of the actual Slender Man game map (Apologies for the vid, I had a cold. lol)
Two drafts of the game engine, one using a combination of C# and XML and the other pure XML. One being a fallback for the other, but thankfully it appears to be shaping up rather nicely.
Ambient effects (Background wind noises, a spooky heart-beat that increases as time decreases, thunder, and other miscellaneous noises.)
Time-limited torches that can be blown from your hand, forcing you to pick it up in the darkness.
And, of course, Slenderman.
Anyway, this is project that I'm quite pleased with. Just felt like sharing. :)
TLDR: Looking for newish mmo to play with about 5 others, don't want to have to interact with other players unless it's because I'm killing them. Not super grindy either please.
Not Too Long; Did Read:
Me and my friends have started looking into mmo's to dump some time into. We tend to play games online together for a couple hours most night. What I'm looking for in particular is a type of game that:
Can complete end game content with few people. 5 preferably, 20 max or so. No offense, I know mmo's are about the social aspect but I don't really like meeting random people anymore, I don't like the idea of joining a guild of 100 people just to get good equipment. My schedule doesn't allow me to play often, I just want to play with a few friends who have similiar schedules as me and succeed at both pvp and pve.
Not a massive grindfest. Grinding is fine, it's a core thing I get it. I just don't want to have to spend a month just to get to the cap level, let alone gathering gear and money.
Not required but I'd like it to be a newer mmo, one that's not saturated with thousands of max level players who've been playing for a couple years, know everything inside out. I want to be able to get into pvp with doing only a little bit of research, and most things still be experimental, maybe some things people haven't tried before, etc.
I doubt any of us would do a subscription game, but we'd probably pay 20-40 up front if needed, or just a f2p (as long as its not p2w obviously).
Maybe this doesn't exist. Maybe my first point eliminates all mmo's, but if there's one out there I'd love to try it.
Archeage is one we recently tried, and I really liked it. I liked the combos (I haven't played an mmo since burning crusade for WoW so there's tons of new stuff I've never seen in mmos before). I like the 3 class system, I like crafting and upgrading and all that. I like open world pvp, running around finding 3 guys just farming and jumping down and ambushing them. I like raids. I just want to be able to do it all with only 5 or so people. Archeage seems very grindy and the end game seems like its all about getting as many people into a guild as possible to get anything decent. I haven't played too far into it, we've only played until about level 25 each, but it's very slow, lots of typical kill x gather y go to z stuff, which is fine I suppose but if the end game sucks it will have been a huge waste of time. I like the idea of committing crimes and being pirates/vigilantes as well though.
Sorry for the long post.
A recent post got me wanting to play the game again. I have an old character but not sure I want to pay $30 to recover him so I was going to create a new one.
It's an older game but has a lot of community events, RP (if you're into that) , some questing, and does actually take some skill to play well at higher levels.
if you're interested, send me a PM and we can start a new character together.Thanks!
So ive been watching anime alot and because of it im itching to play a cartoonish MMO. Doesnt have to be specifically like animes like SAO or Log Horizon but just something anime-like.
Preferred Genres (Fantasy, Sci-Fi, etc.): Any
Pricing Model: F2P if its worth it I will dish out the cash
Eastern or Western: Eastern
Combat Type (action, turn-based, tab-target, ect.): Any
Game Type (Sandbox, Themepark, RPG, FPS, RTS, etc.): RPG but will settle for others
Released or Upcoming: Released
Games Played: (Ive played alot but it was a LONG time ago so im keeping this empty. Maybe things have changed. WoW is the only exception to this list. Ive played it but once I hit cap I got bored with it. I know an expansion is coming out but im not getting it anytime soon.)
Any preferred features or mechanics?: Gameplay features none really. Mainly just a game that has a high community count
My main requirements are cartoonish/anime style with a high population where I can talk to people if I want to start a conversation rather than just playing on my own in a barren MMO.

ArcheAge is not exactly unknown around these parts, but to much of the larger gaming world XLGAMES' and Trion's ArcheAge still has a lot to prove. And the time has finally come to do so.

Confident in their ability to pull off an RPG, Katauri Interactive has upped the stakes this year by expanding its single-player concepts into an online multiplayer game. The result is Royal Quest, an MMO that presents itself as a more casual, holistic kind of MMO with accessible controls and simple quest construction, then abruptly becomes something more hardcore.
