So here’s an MMO we’ve never heard of before: It’s called Prosperous Universe. It’s super duper indie alpha browser-based massively online game, with single-shard tech, a focus on trading and economy, and of course, a military component – a “high-level meta game” that dev Michael Olp tells us revolves around orbital and planetary structures.
“Imagine a game world with hundreds of stars, thousands of planets and asteroids, new colonies, huge empires and — you. A tiny little company, owning a few ships, barely enough money to buy fuel for your next jump. What would you do? Would you try your luck in one of the asteroid fields mining for rare ores? Would you sell your ships, your cargo and everything else to start trading in one of the large trading hubs? Would you want to become a respected designer of modern space ships? Or would you do anything to become the leader of one of the large corporations to scheme plans on how to wage trade wars against your enemies? Whatever you decide to do, it will leave a mark in the persistent world of Prosperous Universe and have consequences for you and everyone else.”
It’s pretty much got “Bree, come be a Star Wars space trucker” written all over it, and I’m digging the positive name for a change. But while we’re going to kick up a dev video down below and point to the features roadmap, let us also note that there’s no in-game demo or pics just yet. On the other hand? The tiny German Simulogics team also isn’t asking for money just yet. It’s one to keep an eye on!
