That is the coolest Giant Scowling Snail I have ever seen.

I enjoyed Earth Eternal's quirky style. Unfortunately I kept running into graphical glitches that prevented me from playing. I tried for a week or two and then decided to wait until it's a bit more solid.

Same.. it's probably my mediocre computer but I would get weird pauses every time new textures loaded in. I enjoyed the game but it was unplayable for me.

I tried it for a couple of weeks when it first hit open beta and while it looked alright for what it was, it was definitely a grinder. Anyone know if it has changed at all?

Is it a grinder? Depends on how you define grinding, but overall I'd say it's pretty grindy. In the low-to-mid levels, you'll do quite a bit of quest grinding. Lots and lots of quests, most of which are Fed-Ex or Kill Ten Rats quests. In the upper levels, there are fewer quests (to my understanding), so there's more straight-up level grinding off mobs.

Please note, in the January 11th, 2010 "Letter from the CEO", Matt Mihaly said:

First of all, you’re going to see more quests as well as new types of quests. We need to ensure that you can level while working on quests all the time. Pure grinding without a quest is something we want to avoid going forward."

I'm really curious to see what new types of quests they come up with, personally.
