Meet the MMO that lives in Second Life

Welcome to MMOception: an MMO within an MMO (or if you want to get technical, an MMO within a “virtual world”),

By using scripting and the tools available in Second Life, an enterprising team has fashioned an MMO that exists within that virtual world. Remnants of Earth is a “cyberpunk western” romp through a post-apocalyptic Earth in which players go on quests and uncover the world’s story. The game hews to tabletop RPGs with its mechanics, particularly with dice rolls and a heavy emphasis on roleplaying. A reading of the core rulebook is highly recommended to understand how to play, as this is not your typical MMO.

You can watch the trailer for Remnants of Earth below. It’s nothing if not moody and atmospheric!

Kick starter for an Sl sim would be abit overkill. Many of they were setting up there own grid using open simulator. Even then open sim server software runs on fairly low spec PCs and even open grid the hands down most popular private grid has not got the population to keep an active to environment . While it isn’t pocket change Linden labs sum fee army too expensive and most of the content has been made and uploaded by the sims build team over buying assets from Sl marketplace. Usually these sims survive from player donations squired from the occasional tip jar strewn about the place. Kinda stocked it in the nut of the over monitored f2p sceen

I weep for the tiny little bits of occasional acknowledgement that these sites give the greatest of all virtual worlds in existence, Second Life.

…Better building tools than Landmark without the Voxel issues…
…The Best and always improving avatars and clothing and avatar-related features…
…Land ownership with the ability to set many features on your land that only a game dev is immune to…
…Media upload like pictures, videos, textures, and scripting…
…Media streaming on your parcel and in your items from web servers…
…whatever your interest, you will find it there..
…the freedom to do literally anything…
…with little or no supervision…
…one world, one server…

…and it’s free to play…

There’s a couple of other places in SL that are like this the last time I hopped around. I remember a while ago someone recreated the Myst island with working puzzles.
