Let’s face it: The only way that Naïca could get any more cute is if it engaged in some sort of unholy ceremony to drain the life force from puppies. And the only way we can get more engaged with this adorable 2-D MMO is if we end up, you know, actually playing it.
Fortunately, we can do just that (the “playing it” part, not the puppy sacrifice). The pixel art MMORPG went into open beta today, and according to its Twitter account, its servers are burning hot. Naïca offers cross-platform play between PC and mobile devices, with five races, three skills, and a lot of the usual MMO trappings.
Yet the team said that there’s a whole lot more to come: “Naïca is starting its open beta phase, which means the development towards the final version of the game is not over yet (the max level is currently 25)! There may be some things that will change along the months, others may be added, [and] you may encounter some issues.”
