I don’t know what was going on with me during the week of September 16th, but I completely missed the news about fantasy sandbox MMO Wurm Online repackaging itself as a sort of modernized Neverwinter Nights. Wurm Unlimited is not only coming to Steam on October 21st, but it’s offering up the chance for players to run their own private servers and use GM tools while customizing the experience for themselves and/or their friends.
This is basically my MMO holy grail, as I can skip life-wasting progression grinds and ruinous cash shops and get right to the roleplaying, the city building, and all the other fun virtual world stuff that I used to enjoy before MMOs turned into skinner box monetization experiments.
What about you, MOP readers? Will you try Wurm Unlimited?
