Linkrealms – content creation in a gaming world

Linkrealms is a new MMORPG currently in beta. On the face of it, Linkrealms appears a bog-standard role-playing gaming world. Reading through the FAQ however, reveals a few differentiating points:

– Players will be able to have their own plot of land and can create individual content on that land

– Unlike a lot of MMORPGs, there’s no need to commit to a specific class or race – skill sets can easily be altered over time

– Linkrealms will only be accessible to adults, presumably to minimise risks associated with free-form content creation and chat

Developer Mythyn Interactive states in their FAQ that there’ll be no cost to play although on exit from beta there’ll be a premium subscription option plus virtual goods for sale. Graphically, it’s not too shabby at all, with a perspective not dissimilar to classics like Diablo. There’s also some superficial similarities to Metaplace. If Linkrealms pull off simple and effective content creation tools, they may find themselves a significant cohort of gamers wanting something a little different.

The short video below gives some overview of the Linkrealms experience:

We’ll follow Linkrealms’ development over coming months. A big thanks to Poinky for the heads-up.
