Sometimes I wonder how the hell can something that I am completely and totally interested in, slip by and get unnoticed. Well, today while browsing the internets I stumbled across a MMORPG based in Raymond E. Feist’s Midkemian universe. Being a huge fan of Feist’s works and role-playing games in general, I couldn’t help but stare at the discovery. Having really enjoyed his books and played both BaK and RtK games (a gazillion times) I got really eager to jump into this game.
Well this is a text-based RPG, which means all you do is stare at a terminal window reading and typing in commands to interact with the game. At first I was all excited to join the game, but despite the fact that I was eager to give the text-based world a shot, I discovered just how shallow the game really was. The main thing that put me off was the very unmmaginative quests – go fetch that and bring it to me type quests. In short, that was it. I think I’ll be better off reading Feist’s novels.
