MMOs you’ve never heard of: Terra Mango, Royal Blood, and The Tomorrow Children
Welcome back to another edition of MMOs You’ve Never Heard Of, where we pull together a few interesting little games we don’t want to fall through the cracks, and you pipe up in the comments that you have in fact heard of one of these, because someone is totally keeping score!
Terra Mango dropped into our inbox this week — its devs call it “MMOLBTDRTS (Massively Multiplayer Online Location-Based Tower Defense Real Time Strategy game), but the guys in marketing said we had to shorten it a bit.” It’s a free-to-play mobile MMO with multiple races, combat, research, and troop deployment, all with a focus on collaboration with teammates in a three-way war set kinda sorta in an ARG-like real world setting. Reminding you of a cuter Ingress?
A Kickstarter for Terra Mango has a few weeks left to raise a total of $30,000; it’s almost a sixth of its way there as I type this.
Royal Blood is a Gamevil-branded mobile MMORPG that was recently shown at a Unity developer conference in the Netherlands. Like a lot of MMO developers of late, Gamevil’s goal is to produce a high-quality, graphics-intensive MMORPG for mobile devices, in this case one with a “dynamic open world” and live events. While it’ll launch this fall in Korea, expect a global launch to follow. [Source: Press release]
The Tomorrow Children
Our last game isn’t a full-fledged MMO, and it’s almost too late for you to check it out: It’s called The Tomorrow Children, and you might do as Eurogamer does and call it a “quasi MMO town-building tower-defense sandbox game.” It launched exclusively on the PS4 last year but never broke out, and now the Japanese PlayStation blog has announced a sunset on November 1st, though founder packs and “share play” will end in September.
“There is only a short amount of time remaining, however The Tomorrow Children development and operations team hope that you can all continue to enjoy our title until the end of service. And we would like to extend our thanks and best wishes to you all who continue to enjoy and play our game,” writes studio Q-Games. [via Eurogamer]
