Grab an Erectus the Game key from Maata Games and MOP

Maata Games opened the closed beta gates for its “strategy focused empire builder MMO” called Erectus the Game yesterday. Get your giggles over with because the studio has a good reason for using that game title:

“The name Erectus is taken from Homo erectus, the ancestor of modern man. Both human races want their space to live and became enemies in Erectus the Game. Players take on the role of Homo sapiens and build their empires with the end goal of defeating the Homo erectus armies. The story takes place 130,000 years ago and allows players to form alliances and unite against the common enemy as well as against each other. Players’ success will rely heavily on their strategic, economic and diplomatic management skills. As the game world shifts, players will have to quickly adapt their strategies and successfully micromanage their empire in order to expand and achieve greatness.”

Maata has granted MOP 2000 keys that’ll grant you access to the closed beta. Click the Mo button below (and prove you’re not a robot) to take home one of these keys!

Did no one developing this game see the potential problems in calling a game Erectus ?

Erectus predates Sapiens by a lot… wonder why they chose to use those species.

This name is going to trigger a lot of spam/porn filters. Imagine trying to explain to your boss why you’ve been visiting a website with “erectus” in the name.

Silverlock my thoughts exactly! I’ve seen plenty of articles like this on Massively being completely ignored!

MatthewYetter It seems purposeful too, considering you play the “sapiens” that seems like a name just as fitting and also doesn’t have to be followed up by “the game”

Let’s be honest if it had a normal name their would be zero comments on it, so I’d have to call this a win for the marketing department.

I believe the collectors edition will come with cling wrap for your keyboard.

Seriously why did they not just name it Ergaster ???

Yeah, sure the name “makes sense” but…come on devs use your brain.

No kids going to run into school on monday and tell his friends all about his online erectus.
