Tired of cutthroat guild politics, giant epaulets, and lens flare in big budget MMOs? Point your eyeballs instead at Pixel Worlds, a game Finnish dev Kukouri is calling a “social sandbox MMO.” It’s porting over from mobile (where it apparently has a million players) to Steam for PC and Mac players next week on June 9th. And yep, it boasts cross-platform support.
The trailer gives a cutesy overview of the type of pixelized sandbox content players can engage in, from building and exploring platform race levels to farming and trading.
“In Pixel Worlds players join the ever expanding pixel universe by creating their own worlds using hundreds of different building blocks and materials. In total there are already close to a 1000 items ranging from furniture to clothing items, with more added in updates every few weeks. The game economy is run by the players themselves, meaning there are no fixed prices nor limits and trading is done while bartering through the in-game chat system in player-designed marketplaces. Players are free to explore other worlds, create platformer levels for others to play and participate in Live Events in order to win some in-game goodies.”
