Salem isn’t dead! It’s launching June 17th

I don't know what's going on in this picture and I honestly don't wish to.

Salem might have slipped off of your radar over the past few years. It’s a permadeath, open-PvP sandbox that fell into the perpetual beta trap. It also lost its original publisher, which is never a good sign. But no more of that; the game will now officially be launching on June 17th this year. In a Facebook post yesterday, the current owners declared that the game is actually doing rather well:

A group of veteran players who prided themselves on possessing an intimate understanding of the title, and were working on a similar title themselves, decided to scrap everything, purchase the remaining shares of Salem from the powerhouse that is Paradox Interactive, and quite simply evolve the game into the masterpiece they always felt it could be. Slowly but surely, Salem’s population began to rise, and the player-base seemed to reward the efforts of Mortal Moments for the risk they took. The performance of the title is now operating at nearly 800% compared to the time of acquisition, growing strictly by word-of-mouth due to the positive reception of the sweeping changes made.

So if you ever wanted to tool around in a pseudohistorical version of bobblehead colonial America with the very real risk of dying forever, the option of doing so arrives in June.

The most interesting thing of this game isthe role-play ready flavor text that put you into an intellectual world.
Only the dedicated and curious kind can enjoy such a deep and sophisticated game. Forget the flaws, they won’t stop the fact that this game is one of the smartest ever made!

Honestly this game while not for everyone has a deeply sophisticated gameplay that only the more dedicated can enjoy. By that I mean actually reading the lore and flavor text. They are fascinating and encourage role-playing a lot!

Nikixos adamph1974 If it’s so fan made why are they allowing it and not filing a youtube claim? Simple, because it draws in 16 year old fat kids that think the game has cyber in it. I can’t believe how serious your talking about the game. Holy crap, no offense to you personally but the game is the stupidest, ugliest, juvenile thing I have ever seen.

adamph1974 that’s not even official only fan made. It still shows what you are getting into a dark, immersive world where your own mind will betray you

Just ridiculous.

Liandreth Oh i play ToS too, it’s fun, too casual, the mmo is for hardcore players mostly, both games have drama but in ToS the drama ends the moment you finish the game, in salem, your social “choices” last at least months.

ex_Nihilo Sigbjorn LOL first time i see that video, that was hilarous, fortunately, that killing move is now so hard to get that almost noone can afford it because we have Revenge move now. Still, you don’t wander out of providence and if you must you should problably teleport out the moment you see someone in the minimap
