Goddamit - this is real - Apparently, someone is making an Otherland MMO.
Otherland, as in the series of books by Tad Williams, which I find pretty cool.
RPS has a nice video about you can find here:http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2011/08/16/otherland-is-a-new-mmo-that-looks-pretty/
The nice thing about this is, that there are endless possibilites for scenery, since Otherland is basically the internet, without the niceness of course
Color me interested!
Okay, after rewatching the video, I have very little idea about what this is - It seems you can create worlds as well, like in Otherland, you can fight, create, steal, explore and do..well..stuff.
I wonder if this is the next generation of the idea of a real virtual world?
