MMOs you’ve never heard of: Avorion, Naïca, Pocket Mortys, Mighty Party, Neopets, Uncharted Waters Online, and Wolf Team

Welcome back to another roundup of MMOs and MMO-adjacent games you’ve (probably) never heard of — or have totally forgotten about until now! We’ll start today with Avorion, a “procedural co-op space sandbox where players can build their own space ships out of dynamically scalable blocks.” So, space LEGOs. We can get behind that. Avorion officially launched on March 9th and is priced at $25 on Steam.

Next up is the always-fun-to-spell Naïca, a gorgeous pixel art 2-D MMO that is in closed alpha and just pushed out its Cerulean Forest zone. Check out what this patch offers with the following trailer:

And if you’re a fan of Rick and Morty, you might be enjoying the bizarre Pocket Mortys mobile game. What’s interesting with that is that Pocket Mortys recently transitioned into a multiplayer-functional game with raids and everything. Go check it out, reader Pepperzine commands you to do so!

If you are on the prowl for a colorful alternative to digital card games, give the free-to-play Mighty Party a look. It’s kind of a tactical PvP board game with card elements, and the studio promises fast, three-minute battles.

Kotaku has a piece reminding us that Neopets used to be this massive, multi-billion player game back in 2005. And while its popularity has greatly decreased, the title has actually seen a renaissance over recent years thanks to more marketing and development. It might be time to dust off your emaciated pet!

The long voyage of Uncharted Waters Online sailed into its Lost Memories Chapter 3 update in late Feburary, complete with a treasure hunt, a new sea monster, and a level increase to 90. Alternatively, you can get your lycanthrope on with Wolf Team, Gamigo’s MMOFPS that includes puberty subtexts. The title recently added a survival mode to complement its other game options.

Oh, nice to hear about the multiplayer addition on Pocket Mortys. Maybe I’ll jump back this weekend.

I’m enjoying Pocket Mortys. I played through the campaign when it first came out but have yet to really dive deep into the multiplayer. Being stuck at home, it may be the perfect time.

Avorion is a (somewhat) known game though. 5000 user reviews means it was played by hundreds thousands.

I think most of us have heard of Neopets – at one point they advertised heavily on almost everything.

I love Avorion! But I can’t play it. Last time I tried, seriously tried to get into it, I uh, played 80 hours in one week. NOT HEALTHY.

I love the semi-sandboxy gameplay of UWO but it starts so slow during academy phase of the game(tutorials pretty much) many give up and dont get to see how good it is

I own Avorion. I’ve barely played it but I’ve had it for awhile. I need to actually play more of my Steam games like this one more often.
