Post-apocalyptic sci-fantasy MMO Novus Inceptio is now on Steam Greenlight. The indie title aims to diverge from current MMO norms and create an “integrated living world” featuring “hardcore suvival action, tactics, and strategy.”
The Greenlight description mentions character aging and permadeath, attributes that increase with use and decrease with neglect, and effects such as illnesses, injuries, and exhaustion. All of Novus Inceptio’s items are made by players, and the Steam description devotes quite a bit of verbiage to things like exploration, building, and freeform character advancement. Early access is planned for Q4 of 2015.
