The Daily Grind: What’s the most obscure MMO you wish were still around?


I bet you thought this post was gonna be about Zentia, since I loved that game and almost no one remembers it. But it’s not!

No, today’s Daily Grind was inspired by an even more obscure MMO called Iris Online, a gPotato game cast from a similar mold that we first covered nine or so years ago on Massively-that-was. I remember trying it out and being charmed by the cutesy graphics and chibi characters and traveling wagons and unusual tarot theme. It reminded me of Allods Online, only even cuter. And then I lost track of it entirely. Apparently that’s because it closed down not long after rolling out here, and a quick Google search confirms that it exists only in player-run emulator form here in the west now. I kinda miss it. Though not as much as I miss Zentia!

Whenever we do a “what MMO do you want resurrected” post, we get all the usual suspects that everyone knows and played. So what’s the most obscure MMO you wish were still around?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
