Indie MMO Spotlight: Broken Ranks, Broken Chat, And Unbroken Promises

We’re nearing the top of the yr and the Indie MMO information simply retains on coming. With winter proper across the nook (or already right here relying on the place you reside), there’s no higher time to hunker down and play some MMOs. With the addition of BitCraft this week, the Indie MMO Highlight is now masking practically 70 MMOs, so there’s most likely one thing right here to sink your enamel into. If not, let me know what indie MMOs (or not so MMOs) that you’re following and possibly we will develop our protection to 100+ by the top of the yr. However sufficient about me pandering for extra video games to trace, let’s get began with this week’s Indie MMO Highlight.


Though MMORPG has been preserving tabs on BitCraft, a group sandbox MMO, for the previous couple of weeks, that is the primary time it has made it into an Indie MMO Highlight. Disgrace on me. Following on the heels of a group Q&A (see the free ends beneath), developer Clockwork Labs has a brand new weblog put up that covers the what and why of the BitCraft Pre-Alpha. It’s a prolonged put up that makes for an ideal learn if you’re unfamiliar with BitCraft. And make sure to test the BitCraft site for more information (together with a Pre-Alpha signup) if it seems to be fascinating to you.

E book of Travels

Whether or not you want them or not, Early Entry releases present builders an opportunity to take heed to the group and make adjustments to a recreation earlier than it absolutely releases. For developer Would possibly and Delight, which means getting the prospect to try their determination to have permadeath in E book of Travels. You’ll be able to learn all about their determination to (quickly?) flip off permadeath in a recent dev update.

Damaged Ranks

The wait is nearly over. So says developer Whitemoon on the Damaged Ranks web site. A launch window has lastly been set for Damaged Ranks, the two.5D turn-based fight MMORPG, with a target of January 2022. I don’t belief launch dates or home windows anymore than you do, so we’ll have to attend and see if Whitemoon can truly ship. Till then, this pre-launch gameplay video seems to be fairly cool.

The Cycle: Frontier

Life on Fortuna III, just like the Closed Beta itself, has been tough on Prospectors in The Cycle: Frontier. Total, as of Thursday, November 4, over 2 million Prospectors have discovered their demise. Not surprisingly, greater than three-quarters of these deaths had been by the hands of different Prospectors. Greed won’t be the one cause gamers are capturing first and asking questions later, although. Headed into the weekend, a brand new bug has precipitated some points with proximity chat, so calling out to see if somebody is good friend or foe isn’t simple proper now. 

Twin Universe

With Novaquark founder Jean-Christophe Baillie taking up a brand new function as board member and board advisor earlier this yr, it was introduced on Friday {that a} new CEO, Nouredine Abboud, had been chosen.

This week the r/MMORPG subreddit Developer Spotlight featured the Runescape-inspiried Genfanad. We’ve been maintaining a tally of Genfanad for some time now, and the put up on Reddit has a wealth of details about the venture. 

Gloria Victis

Virtually each week we get an replace on the event progress of Gloria Victis. This week’s update is all about throwing weapons and the way the brand new system will work. Normally, that’s all I’ve to say about GV, however this week there’s extra. From now till November 15, Gloria Victis is having a free to play occasion. So when you haven’t given GV a strive, head over to Steam and request entry.


Certainly one of my favourite issues about indie builders is after they showcase video clips of their improvement progress. In contrast to the AAA studios that put out polished cinematic trailers or compilations exhibiting snips of all the perfect items of gameplay, indie devs proudly showcase the little milestones and accomplishments they make throughout improvement. Like this quick clip I discovered on Ilysia Twitter:

Mad World

The Mad World Beta ended on October 31. I didn’t get an opportunity to affix in, so let me know what you considered Mad World within the feedback beneath. If, like me, you missed the final Beta, the Mad World website mentions that one other Beta shall be held in December.


We acquired a brand new weblog posts for OrbusVR this week. The put up was concerning the new content material that’s scheduled for November 16. Whereas the put up didn’t go into element concerning the upcoming cosmetics, it did give some data concerning the new overworld quests.


Final week, we got here throughout a video of BunnyJoker’s tackle PvP toxicity. It didn’t fare effectively within the feedback part of last week’s Indie Spotlight. Hopefully, their tweet masking participant housing will get a friendlier welcome. Studying by way of the put up, although, I’m unsure it would.
