Back in January I bought a new computer, nice 25" screen, 275GTX video card. Tried out some new games then just went back to playing Wurm, I should have just saved my money on the new computer. I like it, I think of it as a mountain climbing MMO.

I have been playing Wurm for over a year. I have two premium (paid) characters on Freedom (PVE server) and one non-premium (free) character on GV (free server). Wurm is one of those games that draws you in to the point where you almost want to go make a game yourself - but then makes you realize just how difficult that task may be. I love this game because of the freedom it gives you to do your own thing. The terraforming is truly unrivaled in any game, and the sense of being there is incredible. Nothing spells fear like cresting the top of a hill to find a raging troll standing five tiles in front of you. You can hunt, fish, terraform, smith tools, fletch bows, craft armor, make food, eat, drink, build, build, and then build some more. There are no classes in this game; everything is skill-based. And let me say, the skill grind is not for the faint-hearted. I know of no game that demands so much to gain so little. But, at the end of this incredibly exhaustive but thoroughly enjoyable grind is the satisfaction of knowing that you have gained what few have gained in a world where few have traveled. Wurm is hard-core crafting at its best. The character models are honestly horrible, but the environment is honestly breathtaking - and it gets better every week. If you love being totally unique from every other player; if you love crafting down to bleeding fingers; if you love having a place all your own in a fantasy world; if you love games that leave you thinking about them when you are not online; if you love the toil, sweat, tears, and joy that comes from painstakingly crafting everything around you - you will absolutely love Wurm! Come on in and play - the water is fine!

Eyesgood of Freedom,
Mayor of Mount Zion.

Donnie Darko is one of my favorite movies! :)
Seriously!
Indie games are the way to go these days, big companies just aren't doing interesting things, or anything beyond the endless attempts at WoW-clones. They're just too afraid of the money-men (all hail holy Mammon!)!

I think we had a bit of a language barrier problem there.. the Epic servers will be designed around dramatic events like this and is part of the 1.0 release. So there can be no epic events of them before they are actually released:)

Seriously this game is one of the best ideas I've ever seen in an mmo. It really allows for so many possibilities for the sandbox-game player. But really the "flaw" (if you call it that) isn't the execution as Rolf and the supporting developers have done an amazing job with the resources they have but its just that. The resources.

Give the developers a big name publisher who'll pour money on them and you got one of the best games ever conceived imo.

But until then, I'll enjoy the still amazing creation Rolf has given us.
