Gran Skrea might be the indie MMO gem you’ve been seeking

Ever since launching on Steam early access back in June, the indie fantasy sandbox Gran Skrea Online has been doing its best to attract and keep players through a series of updates.

These patches, the most recent of which was on July 28th, added a six-hour PvP protection window, housing object permanence, an auction house cap, a limit to jail fines, an AFK mode, home teleports, more combat abilities, primary and secondary weapon options, and a guild collector’s tab.

YouTuber LazyPeon recently spent some time checking out this buy-to-play MMO and found that despite wonky combat and crude graphics, there’s something of a compelling game in the making here. Give it a look below!

Ive been following this one. Its so well priced. I think ill spend the ten dollars and at least get that many hours out of it. It seems pretty cool.

“added a six-hour PvP protection window”

I wanted to point out that that’s a one time thing. You don’t get 6 hours of PvP protection between each time you’re murdered or anything, you get a one time 6 hour PvP protection before you start being ganked and looted :P

After that you get 15 minutes between each time they gank and loot you, just time enough to gather a bit more loot for them to take.

Sorry I do realize some people enjoy Open PvP and loot rights :D I’m just not one of them, at least not in MMORPGs where power normally comes from time played rather than skill. I simply don’t have enough time to play to be competitive in those worlds.

Looks pretty charming, I dig the RPG progression based on jobs.

But again, if I can understand looking a bit like poop when you have no money to invest; why open PvP and tab target from the pre-WoW era?
MMOs moved away from those in the fucking 1990’… “new” MMOs are so stuck in the past that they lose the bigger picture. And all their market shares too, but who needs money when you have nostalgia I guess.

Looked interesting until I saw it was open pvp. I understand there is a small core of people who love the thrill of murdering someone who is trying to chop a tree but it still seems bizarre to me that this design decision is taken so often.

Just because a few people with defective taste buds think pineapple is a legitimate topping for pizza does not mean that it always has to be on the menu.

Is it everywhere though? I watched a few videos about this game but never saw anyone kill or even attack another player.

I haven’t played it, but read some reviews on Steam. It’s got safe zones. I’m not sure how big they are. And you get looted on death. There are varying percentages of how much loot you drop.

This needs a stream, and i’m happy to learn about, feels like a sister game to Project Gorgon.
