Concept Art the MMO?

Let's go.

Every once in a long while, a game is announced that really makes us sit up and go “Oooh!” without any irony. Book of Travels, the newest reveal from studio Might and Delight, is just that kind of game.

Announced on Steam and at the Tokyo Game Show, Book of Travels clearly differentiates itself from other MMOs with its illustrated, evocative art style that looks like something you might see in a gorgeous children’s book. The team says that this is “an online RPG that sets you adrift in a fairytale world” with a focus on “community, roleplaying, long wondrous journeys, and unpredictable events and meetings.”

The title has been in the works for three years but has surfaced to make itself known and also prep the community for an October Kickstarter campaign. Might and Delight said that the game will be made no matter what, however the Kickstarter will help to enhance the overall product. “Book of Travels uses an events system that allows us to easily implement your ideas, so this means we can be a lot more open and collaborative in designing the game world,” the studio said.

Well, you don’t often see anything that whimsical coming down the MMO /Kickstarter pipeline. It’s usually all rum, PvP and the lash. So the pigtails will definitely keep an eye and a hair strand open for this development. o.O

I don’t even know most of what you do it in but I’m interested and want it!

I really enjoy the smooth soft trailer with game music and stuff too. Normally in gaming they do these trailers with this crazy booming music that has nothing to do with the game. They just try to make you feel excited while showing you game images. You know, trying to trick you into thinking that you’re excited about the game. This one does no such tricks but instead I’m actually excited about it :D

Makes me wish Nintendo would create an MMO, just because everything they make seems to me at first glance like it would not catch on and then it just completely sucks you in and in a different innocent way. I looked at this trailer and had those thoughts, that I just don’t get it, but watch it end up being the best MMO ever to come out.

Long ago i was thinking about an MMO where you have to take a long journey, you can stop at any point then keep walking, when you reach the end you restart the whole thing in a different way.

Book of Travel (BoT!) may give me some of this idea, i’m interested.
