Wurm Unlimited is kicking ass on Steam
Wurm Unlimited is still hanging out in SteamSpy’s top 25 after one month of release. A press blurb from Code Club lead developer Rolf Jansson says that the fantasy sandbox also has the third highest playtime of all the games listed as well as an 82 percent positive review rate. He also reveals that Wurm is now available for both Linux and SteamOS.
“I’m extremely proud of the launch of Wurm Unlimited, and I think it is pretty amazing given that people actually run their own MMO engine,” Jansson writes. “This can feel slightly overwhelming with some technical challenges but we’ve made it as straight forward as possible: basically you click two buttons then locate your server in the LAN tab and connect.” He also says that Code Club is continuing development on both the Unlimited and the MMO versions of Wurm, with running water, sitting, and improved client performance next on the to-do list.
In other Wurm news, someone has made Tamriel inside Code Club’s game. It’s described as the “ultimate sandbox server,” though it’s worth noting that the makers haven’t modeled any cities from the Elder Scrolls series.
