Mad World shows off just how crazy cross-platform it can be

One of our “MMOs you’ve never heard of” (before we mentioned it, of course), Mad World is attempting to reach for your attention by being everywhere and on everything you might use to play video games.

In a new video released this past week, the team demonstrated how this 2-D MMORPG can run on browsers, smartphones, and tablets just fine. You can spot seven devices operating the game in the video, all synchronized for cross-platform play.

With colorful, expressive art and robust cross-platform capabilities, Mad World is inching up in our esteem as a contender. Check out the demo after the break and let us know on which device you’d want to play this game.

Someone breaking an NDA posted video of an early test, and it had certain aspects about it that made me nervous . Though I do realize early tests can be like that, I also wanted to make sure it did do a good deal of change later which I can see it has.

Actually it absolutely is 500% better than that early test someone posted a link to before. But that was some tech test that shouldn’t have been recorded and put online to begin with, doing so is breaking a contract you signed and giving the wrong impression of a game that is going to change immensely. It made me a tiny bit paranoid seeing it even though I normally know better. What little fears it brought up are now alleviated seeing this now though.

To me, the wait is annoying for this one. :(

Waiting is normally good – if a game isn’t released at all on any platforms yet anyway. Normally it means more work is going into the game (we know that’s not always the case, but a good deal of the time it is). The more work that goes into a game before release the better – in general. We all know of the one or two games that defy that rule but if you look at earlier test videos of this one you’ll be glad they’ve been working longer on it. Of course as mentioned in my comment above that was an NDA breaking video of an early test, that isn’t representative of the game. But still more time usually means more and better development and it’s not always a bad thing to wait :D

Yeah ^_^, I follow closely this one and I’m ok with waiting for it in the end. I kinda wish that I found out about it closer to the release date though :P. But oh well, at least I can follow the development process and see how it evolves. :D
