Massively OP’s Weirdest MMORPG Stories of 2016: The Endless Forest Returns


We’re counting down Massively OP’s weirdest MMORPG stories of 2016!

Clocking in at #3 on our list is Endless Forest Returns, which is explained in Justin’s piece The Endless Forest devs seek funds for a remake.

The 2006 MMO-kinda Endless Forest is described as “a whimsical multiplayer online magical deer fantasy” in which players play as deer that communicate via sound and perform activities like roaming through the woods and rubbing against trees. 170,000 registered players thought that sounded worth checking out over the last decade.

This year, the developers who built the game outdid themselves, turning to Indiegogo for help funding a sequel to the deer-based MMO called The Endless Forest: The Second Decade. They have raised nearly €25,000 as I write this. It’s happening. Weird, yes. But also awesome.


Stay tuned tomorrow for another entry in the countdown, and don’t forget to check out our annual MMORPG awards and our blooper awards while you’re at it!
