I haven't played an MMO since Ultima Online, but I may just break my streak for a new game being made by a man named Eskil Steenberg. His Game is called LOVE, and it's an MMORPG which will have constantly changing worlds with servers that support 100-110 players each. The gameplay isn't totally clear yet, but it appears that it's a completely cooperative game where you use tokens to build your cities and change the landscape. It seems like there's going to be AI enemies which you have to fend off, and the game will transform over time to make new resources available. The game is designed to work on a 1.5GHz processor and a $100 graphics card, so basically, almost anyone will be able to play it.
The biggest thing behind LOVE seems to be how Steenberg has made the game. On his page, which you can check out here
, he describes the game in terms of a philosophy which not only guided the creation of the game engine, but also in how the gameplay functions. While reading the Quel Solaar news page, there are many posts where it appears the Steenberg was starting to go a little bit insane while making the game, and this makes me very anxious to see what he's made. The entire game's code is open source and anyone can download and use the tools which were created for the game's development. You can see a teaser of the game here.
The game is now out of Pre-Alpha and should be moving to Beta testing sometime soon. Are you excited?
