Ninelives welcomes you to explore its darkly mysterious world

Have you heard of this game called Ninelives? It’s recently started to gain some recognition with the start of its open alpha test, even though it’s been in development for a few years now. If you’ve been jonesing for a new title that focuses heavily on exploration, this might be it.

Ninelives is an “online free-to-play open world adventure RPG” that’s being created by a two-person dev team under the name SmokymonkeyS. The game lacks levels at all, urging players to explore anywhere across Ninelives’ nine zones and pursue their own goals through a system called The Path. Elements in the game world are programmed to shift at times, offering a splash of randomness to keep things fresh. Currently the game has four races and three classes.

It looks as though Ninelives only offers a single-player mode right now although a multi-player mode is said to be in development on its roadmap page: “Implementation of multi-player mode, including scenario based on special maps, cooperative play, and competitive play between players.”

Since it’s an open alpha, you’re invited to jump into the game right away if you like. You can also check out Ninelives’ open alpha trailer after the break.

Damonvile Reminds me a bit of Ascent actually. Two man team doing their own thing and putting out the game that they want, instead of being influenced by a dozen different player camps pulling them in some other direction.

An Overabundance of Cats Damonvile It’s alpha, mate.  And, it’s being developed by a two man team. I can’t imagine they’d have a lot in there yet. I assume they are just trying to address any bugs that they can’t find themselves and then move on with development. Not tried it yet, but color me interested.

Was looking at the website a couple days ago. I really dig the art style and game features. Definitely something I’ll check out when they get further along on their development roadmap.

Looks like Warcraft mixed with Morrowind. :)
Added too bookmarks i will definitely check this out when it will be more refined and content heavy.

For a 2 person game it looks extremely impressive.

DugFromTheEarth magogjack I have one of those “Wanted: Dead or Alive”  <cat pic> “Schrodinger’s Cat”  T-shirts and if I had a dollar for everyone that asked me what it means…..I’s hab bout $3.50.
I have had someone tell me that I must really hate that guy’s cat to have a shirt made that says that.

I made a statement. All I expect is for people to either disagree or agree.

DugFromTheEarth So you expect to see a bunch of comparisons showing that people don’t understand the whole Schrodinger’s cat thing?
