Villagers & Heroes’ Slye on the new Reborn overhaul

In case you missed it, Villagers & Heroes got a facelift earlier this month. The fantasy sandbox from Mad Otter Games is now known as Villagers & Heroes Reborn, the better to illustrate its transition from browser title to full-fledged MMO territory.

V&HR “focuses on the interaction between different kinds of activities, combat and crafting,” explains Mad Otter CEO (and Dynamix founder) Damon Slye in an interview with MOTD Media. “The focus is on having a real economy where different activities interact with each other in different ways. This all comes together in the village.”

The update also removed the much-hated energy mechanic, overhauled the UI, and upgraded the character creation process.

Damonvile thegayblade In a world where card games and 4-player co-op ARPGs are “MMOs”, anything can be a sandbox.

thegayblade While I don’t disagree, I think sandbox means nothing to me anymore. It’s been so abused by everyone both player, dev and media it’s just a word, like mmo is now.

I tried the game but it just didn’t do it for me.  I know a lot of people really enjoy it, so hopefully this patch is all you wanted and more :)

I have noticed that you use the word sandbox in many of your posts. Perhaps you should do just a little research about what the word means to MMO players. I’ve played this game and it does not provide a basic framework that players build off of to create purpose or even to create much of the economy of the game. EVE Online is a great example of a sandbox, Ultima Online is mostly a sandbox. This game is not. It’s a theme park game. Grab this quest, do these tasks, rinse and repeat.
Instead of being so smug in your replies, it might help you to actually try to understand the feedback you receive. It would be more productive and for a site that wants subscribers you might not turn away potential paying customers.
