World Seed makes an MMO out of a board game

When you think about it, combining board games with MMORPGs isn’t the worst idea in the world. Graphical MUDs and games like Stash have brought this kind of experience to players for years now, but it may be that World Seed represents the next level of board game MMOs.

World Seed is heavily inspired by classic tabletop board games,” the developer explained. “The core gameplay lets you move around on a world-board, clearing out tile after tile, either for crafting materials, epic battles with creatures, or just to simply explore the world. Every hour, the world of World Seed reshapes with new content.”

World Seed was developed by Swedish creator Kim Korte, who launched the title back in February. Currently, the beta is sitting on a “very positive” rating on Steam and is available for six bucks if you want to help pay for server coasts. The developer also noted that it can be played for free in your browser.

If you’d like to see it in action, one player posted hours of footage of what appears to be a pretty mellow gameplay experience:

Tried the browser site and was told, “Google Chrome is required to play this game.”

I see this more now, websites asking for Chrome, we are back to the 90s it seems when some websites only work on one browser … “best viewed by Internet Explorer”

And the other browsers let you spoof your browser agent to pretend to be Internet Explorer, because 99% of the websites would load fine on non-IE browsers. “Best Viewed” usually meant “We didn’t QA this page on other browsers, and we only want to train our tech support people on the dominant browser.”

I use Firefox and i saw the same message, I assume Stormwaltz using Firefox or some Chrome based browser, all modern but the website would not allow them to run the game.

Firefox, with NoScript plugin. Time to stop letting Google track your every movement on the internet. :P

Firefox was the king between 2004 and 2009, but when Chrome released, Firefox kept declining and died. Mozilla desperately tried to turn Firefox into a Chrome clone, but that only led them to push away their last users.

Now Firefox barely exists, Mozilla – the hypocrite company that owns it and lies left and right how they care about people and their privacy, when in fact they get paid by Google every quarter to sell their data to them.

That’s also why Google keeps Firefox alive – so Chrome is not being accused of being a monopoly – and people can choose between Chrome and that crippled kid in an electric wheelchair – Firefox.

In another 5 years Firefox will be completely dead with less than 0.5% worldwide market share and it will all be the fault of the greedy scumbags at Mozilla who keep destroying their product and showing their users the middle finger.
